One of the most important and difficult decisions that men face every day is what they wish to wear. There is a plethora of options available to today's fashion conscious man and thus, this decision becomes increasingly difficult as time passes by. However, there is hope as one can easily go to the wardrobe with a clear idea about what the weather demands and thus, mens footwear can be selected at ease. There are several options, which you may choose from, if you are looking to go per the weather that you wish to suit yourself to. If you are looking for shoes that are going to complement your look during the summer, make you sweat less and thus give you a clean, hygienic look, then flip flops and sandals are a great idea. On the other hand, if you are looking to go out for a leisurely stroll but it is chilly outside, no matter how inclined you are to do otherwise, you shall have to go with covered shoes - maybe even boots to prevent the chill from riding up your feet and making you fall ill in the cold weather. Thus, your footwear depends largely upon the type of weather and the terrain you are going to cover in your daily activities.
One should probably use the climate to determine the style of cut; this may easily be set as a thumb rule while deciding the category of footwear. Finding just the right sized footwear can get a little tricky sometimes given that different brands offer different size schemes. In addition, with a variety of options falling under the footwear segment, customers often feel spoilt for choice. Make sure to double check the comfort levels before buying. Also, try to avoid any straps that might cause irritation.
Flip flops and sandals are ideal for regions which are predominantly tropical and equatorial, where there is incessant rainfall and warm weather almost throughout the year. In such a scenario, wearing covered shoes can be quite a menace. Covered shoes are usually not very breathable, they do not allow for proper ventilation of the feet (which can, if aggravated, lead to several skin and odour problems). They can cause heating up of the skin and consequent blistering, cramps in the feet from long periods of wearing shoes.
In a tropical climate, abundant with wetness and rainfall, flip flops and sandals are extremely viable options - they are easy to clean, easy to dry, effortless to carry and use, and usually develop less odour problems as compared to covered shoes; especially those made up of leather or leather like materials. Flip flops and sandals usually allow in the dust and pollution but can also be easily dusted off, which largely compensates this facet.
