When it comes to pairing boots with jeans, avoid hiking boots as those will not go well at all. Instead, look for the desert, Chelsea, or dress variety.

  • Desert Boots

It’s easy to confuse desert boots and chukka’s. Desert boots are actually a type of chukka. The factor that defines it is its suede upper which goes great with pants.

  • Chelsea Boots

When it comes to Chelsea boots, go for a pair that’s in plain leather. These are also higher than chukkas so you may want to wear them with jeans that have a higher cut. Also, they have rubber soles over the chukka’s white ones. It makes these boots easier to care for and classier.

  • Dress Boots

Dress boots have brogues in them or classier events. But there are versions without brogueing that plain toe caps, which are more versatile for any event.

Derbies

These are the simplest shoes you could wear with jeans. They simply have basic variations, but aside from that, there’s not much to it. It’s simplicity is what makes it very versatile and fitting to casual bottoms such as jeans. Either at home or with a suit, this pair will look good on you.

Never Use This Pairing

There are only two shoes that should never be worn with jeans; whether they are dark or light. These are: Oxfords and Closed-lacing Boots. The reason why is because these are both closed-lacing, which means it’s way too classy to wear with jeans. These shoes are more elegant than their open laced counterparts and are considered very formal.

Key Takeaway

Picking the right shoes for jeans is all about picking the right color of jeans and not going too overboard with the class when it comes to picking shoes. Jeans gives this sense of casualness so your shoes should do the same. Although dark jeans have been seen to be dressier, there is also a limit to what shoes they go well with. Just think “not too formal” and you’ll be fine.
