This is a great way to dress up a nice pair of jeans. This boot is extremely comfortable and offers all-day support. Year-round styling and functionality.

Available in wingtip or cap toe, the rubber sole on this shoe makes it very comfortable. This shoe is “at home” in the boardroom or out for dinner and drinks. The Heights can work comfortably with almost any outfit.

From casual to dressy, Straus for Men has you covered.
