2007 Best Men's Shoes

Alan Bilzerian

Though they’re usually the last thing you put on, shoes make or break your outfit—and Alan Bilzerian does his best to make sure that you come out on the right side of that equation. He’s got a healthy lineup of casual, never-juvenile footwear by Marséll and Corvari, but it’s his world-class dress shoes that really take things up a notch: crocodile Alberto Fasciani laceups, Carpe Diem bucks with handcut laces, and Paul Hardin handpainted shoes with stitched toecaps.
