When it comes to men's shoes, there are a few essentials that every guy should have in rotation. One of those? A solid wingtip. The subtle detailing, which is often accompanied by broguing, makes a standard black or brown shoe really pop. The details make it a little more casual of a shoe than, say, a cap toe, but they're usually of the dress shoe variety. Wear them with suits and great trousers, and wear them often. Here are 11 of the best out there right now.
