My Shoe Collection for 2016 | Minimalist Men's Shoe Collection

1767 ratings | 163432 views
Everyone knows that shoes are one of the most important parts of a man's outfit and wardrobe. But which shoe styles do you really wear regularly? How many pairs of shoes do you need? What kind of shoes do you have in your closet right now? After being asked a couple of times to make a video about my current shoe collection, I decided to go ahead and do it! These 12 pairs of shoes are the shoes I wear regularly throughout the year. While I do own a few more pairs, these 12 are my go-to shoes. They have me covered for just about every situation - from casual weekends to formal black tie events. Note: this collection doesn't include athletic shoes (for running, hiking, tennis, tap dancing...you get the point). — SHOP MY COLLECTION #1: Ace Marks Cap Toe Ocfords - http://mdst.mn/2efylXl #2: Allen Edmonds Park Avenue - http://geni.us/rQNN #3: Shoe Passion Brogues - http://mdst.mn/2e5chm4 #4: Cole Haan Loafers (similar) - http://geni.us/zVYqxA5 #5: Vans for J.

Ace Marks or Beckett Siminon?
The Modest Man (12 days ago)
I haven’t tried Ace Marks sneakers or BS dress shoes so can’t really compare. I really like both brands (from what I’ve tried).
PLAY2WIN (17 days ago)
What polo is that?
The Modest Man (17 days ago)
Gant Rugger Vee polo
PO W (20 days ago)
Great video! I really like your collection! I tend to wear boots most of the time...except in the summer. Chukkas and Chelsey boots are my favourites.
Caden Witt (29 days ago)
Hey man! Great vid- where is your polo from?
The Modest Man (28 days ago)
Thanks! It’s from Gant Rugger.
Tippu Mahmood (1 month ago)
I also have passion for collecting shoes, (some of which i've never worn) consisting of 2, leather sole office moccasion shoes, a pair of stacey adams black & white gangster shoes, 3 trainers, a pair of rugged boots for the winter and 8 pairs of casual shoes. Hopefully this week i also intend to purchase a pair of blue brogues, brown brogues (both suede) as part of my country attire and a pair of patent black dress shoes which are a must for evenning event occasions
Ayoub Elhamdaoui (1 month ago)
Sir, you need to toss those birks and get you a pair of nice flipflops. Flipflops are so much more versatile and better looking
The Modest Man (1 month ago)
Agree to disagree 😉

You're a youtuber that teachs about fashion and it would have good that you have cleaned and polished your shoes before show them to the world. But nice minimalist collection. Cheers!

Hey Braque, where did you get your shoe rack/organizer? Can you tell me the link where i can find one like yours or at least one similar to it?
Anthony Cedeno (5 months ago)
The Modest Man Great! Okay I see, Thanks so much for the help!
The Modest Man (5 months ago)
I believe it’s from Container Store, but it was at the house when I got there (I didn’t buy it) so not sure. It’s meant to be a closet system for a room that doesn’t have an actual closet.
AF24 (5 months ago)
Where did you get the shoe rack?
Yaniel Suarez (5 months ago)
Thanks for showing off this collection! It helped with some ideas. I was wondering about your opinion on cap toe dress boots vs non cap toe like your brown President pair from Thursday. Do you think that the stitching on the Captain (cap-toe) style they offer is a bit too overwhelming and not needed for a dress boot? You, Alpha, and Antonio from Real Men Real Style all prefer the President and it must be for some good reason. I'm deciding between the two right now and have a minor case of OCD.
The Modest Man (5 months ago)
I prefer a plain toe, but it’s really just personal preference. Either is great!
Your wise cousin Joe (5 months ago)
I have so many pair of shoes is not even funny.....try..30+ pairs.... i am guilty.
BenSavage (5 months ago)
happy to hear your opinion on ace marks. the gentlemens gazette has a deal with them but i want to be sure hes not just getting payed to promote them. they sound good, but time will tell so olease do an update once you break them is brother.
The Modest Man (5 months ago)
I’ve enjoyed the shoes since this video. I don’t wear them too often but they’ve worn in nicely so far. Raphael doesn’t promote anything he doesn’t believe in 100%, so you can trust his opinion, even if the video is sponsored.
BenSavage (5 months ago)
brock, you rock brother. enjoying your videos. are you able to claim all those clothes on your taxes?

Nice video! I have the same Vans...but will never buy them again. Like all shoes of that type, the soles wear out within a year.
The Modest Man (9 months ago)
Yeah I didn’t buy them again either.
Adrian Chong (10 months ago)
Hope I could get a second opinion on this but over here in Malaysia, everyone seems to be wearing sneakers or walking/running shoes for casual wear. Are these leather shoes worth investing in or will I just look out of place? I only see leather shoes worn by office workers and they're mostly black instead of brown. I really like brown leather shoes/boots 'cause of the masculine image they have but I don't wanna be that one weird guy. :/
Aienbalos Aienbalos (9 months ago)
Adrian Chong why not be the weird guy?
JCrossover (10 months ago)
hey Brock do you know what size Allen Edmonds shoe trees you got? I have a size 7 AE too and I got the size small she tree but they look like they are just stretching out the shoe in a bad way and not fixing the shape
Adam Earle (10 months ago)
I own 6 pairs myself, Brown leather chukka Brown dress shoe Black dress shoe Black running shoe Red canvas shoe Beige canvas shoe

Great video! Please tell me the exact model of those Cole Haan chukkas please though!
vigo46 (8 months ago)
Do you know what the model is? Just curious
The Modest Man (10 months ago)
They’re really old (not made anymore).
Garett Smith (10 months ago)
Liked the video, what particularly grabbed my attention is that you commented that Cole Hann's build quality usually is not that good.  Could you do a video on moderately priced shoe brands that have better build quality that you would recommend?
Ted C (11 months ago)
I've never seen a video on proper fit when buying shoes. Shoe stores hire warm bodies to fill the position, and are often young people who haven't owned shoes long enough to know anything. Your attention to detail and knowledge, like - "any leather shoe will stretch out a bit as you break them in"... as part of the video, would make it valuable to me. (Many of us put on a shoe, pinch the toe with our fingers, lie our mother did when we were kids, is how we will buy shoes until we're 80, unless/until we learn a better way)
Ted C (10 months ago)
I believe it was the very next day, after posting this, that Raphael posted How dress shoes should fit, and 4 days later Antonio did too. Lmao
Alexis Chapelan (11 months ago)
My own minimalistic shoes collection: black monk straps, cognac brogues, navy suede chukka boots, a pair of casual leather sneakers, dress boots for cold weather, driving moccasins (in navy or brown) for summer. Then maybe add in some hiking shoes, flip flops, etc
Jon Harmil (11 months ago)
send me those walnut brown shoes... very nice!
Tan Zhao Heng (1 year ago)
Hi Brock, cool video! Do you have a boot care routine(placing shoe tree in it, applying conditioner and etc) on the boots you own?
Ashish Rajoba (1 year ago)
You don’t have a pair of double monk straps? 🤔
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Ashish Rajoba I do now!

Great channel and shoe collection. What do you think of elevator shoes? Can you walk in them okay what's your experience?
Adam Sandoval (1 year ago)
You need to work on your public speaking...I mean you are recording this and still leaving in all the "ums" either re-record or prepare your dialogue beforehand. There's no excuse am interview is one thing but pre recorded video, c'mon man. Otherwise I like the content of your work.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
I'll work on my speaking if you work on your grammar ;)

Fantastic video. I'm starting to build my shoe collection just bought some black Allen Edmond Park Avenue oxfords.

Hello Brock,You thought of investing your money wisely on English shoes, such as Crockett & Jones, Churches, Lobbs, Cheney, loakes or Barker??Thought I'd give you this good information free of charge!

Serious question. Why is this channel called, "modest man"??this is far from modest and minimalist, wtf??
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Arturo Grijalva it means "man of modest height or stature" ...in other words, shorter or smaller men.

Hunter (1 year ago)
Put shoe trees in the rest of your shoes man
Hunter (1 year ago)
The Modest Man I personally think they should go into any leather shoes. You can notice the difference quite easily. Nordstrom Rack sells wood shoe trees for 2 for $26, so you don't actually red to spend a lot of money.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Hunter Brodt I keep them in my nicer shoes but I don't think they're necessary for every pair. I'd like to see someone A/B test using shoe trees sometime. Would take forever but that would be interesting!
Nice collection.
Rob Phillips (1 year ago)
2 pairs is minimal , 1 pair of Oxford's , 1 pair of Brogues . You sir would be considered a hoarder in the capsule world .
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Rob Phillips that seems redundant. What would you wear with casual outfits?
Allen Edmonds Park Avenues for dressy occasions, Nike shoes for casual and some good boots for Winter are all you need.

I actually got 6.5 and they fit great after loosening up a little.

HI Brock, Your information has been extremely useful in my using my wardrobe. I had so many solid dress combinations I had not considered. I did wait for the sale at Allen Edmonds and got a pair of black dress shoes, Del Ray, and also the brown. Basic combinations that FIT really work. Too many golks buy really nice unique items of clothing and then cannot integrate them into their wardrobes. You helped me pull all of it together. Thanks! Oh yeah.... Brock is not lying folks.... Make sure your clothes fit!

I wear Blundstone chelsea boots almost every day.
Eric Rice (1 year ago)
Hmm, no Chucks. interesting. I find myself in converse chuck taylor all stars at least once a week.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Eric Rice for some reason chucks aren't comfortable to me. Probably just the shape of my feet.

Does anyone notice a whistle sound after everything he says?
Ryan Lee (1 year ago)
Lol just got my very first pair of dress shoes in the mail today: a pair of Cole Haan loafers. I'm a size 7.5 typically, but their website told me a 7.5 would be too big and that I should go with a 7 and BOY ARE THOSE SHOES TIGHT. Currently have them in the freezer with bags of water in them in attempts to stretch them out. It took me 15 to ease the left one on because it was too tight to even side my foot into it. Lets pray it works because Im too poor to return them and get new ones.
Yaosen Tian (1 year ago)
any coupons?
Tray Ahzz (1 year ago)
like the foot imprint left on the Birkenstock

funny is that you can make out the shape of a guys foot sometimes on the bottom of his shoes.the sole, from heavy wear.

Those jcrew are an exact copy of Clarks desert boots taupe grey
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Oscar Wolff Mellado nice! Yeah man, can't go wrong with CBDs. One of the most versatile shoes out there. So many colors and sizes too. Cheers brother!
Oscar Wolff Mellado (1 year ago)
The Modest Man wow that was a fast reply, I wasn't aware of the Jcrew existence, I own about 7 pairs of CDBS, and when I first saw your collection, I immediately thought they were the desert boots. I can't get Jcrew down here in Chile. Great channel and thanks for the reply Saludos!
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Oscar Wolff Mellado similar but not exact. The Macalisters have a lower profile, softer toe box, and they're darker grey. The sole is also darker. I prefer the silhouette of these over CDBs.

How do you feel about brown ankle books(like the ones in your collection)  paired with jeans and button down shirt for summer? or should they be left for fall/winter?
Vince MC (1 year ago)
Add Ultra Boost to your collection. Your feet will thank you
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
For some reason those don't appeal to me. Maybe because they're so popular...
Stefan Iordan (1 year ago)
You need shoetrees! And some polish :) Nice shoes though...
SoldierlyOyster (1 year ago)
I recommend saphir shoe polish. It’s considered the best in the world, and It does wonders. Watch the Hanger project, Kirby Alisson displays it excellently.
aaa abb (1 year ago)
to be fair, acemarks shoes are blakestitched, a type of construction that can only be done by a machine so they are not completely handmade

Hey man I really like your style, and videos. I am going for a minimalist look myself, and wanted to know what you think about other brands like Allsaints.
Loved this video, great video man!
Christian M (1 year ago)
I noticed you saying that your gray vans are just as if not more versatile than white sneakers . I'm in the market for a sneaker for spring/summer but am torn between white or grey. I think a lot of guys are not totally comfortable with all white sneakers, much like myself. I've found them to be very loud even with low contrast outfits. I was hoping you could talk/show how to wear grey sneakers both casual & smart causal. greatly appreciated.

You're doing a good job sir I would just recommend that you make your videos more exciting and not so long.

When you share your experience, it make me laugh because I also found my most favorite pair of loafer that made in Italy for 10 bucks at Goodwill. Keep up the good work !
Jay Sens (1 year ago)
12 plus pairs seems like a lot to be considered a 'minimalist' collection. Nice video though.
vincent juarez (1 year ago)
i sell shoes for my college job, most business men alone even the tech guys own more than 12 pairs of shoes.
j unc (1 year ago)
I guess it's true everyone has their own idea of minimalist. I interviewed all over the country last winter from the icy northeast to the midwest to sunny southern California and the deep south. At the time I only owned one pair of shoes, but they sufficed both for work, play and with a bit of a polish they were nice enough for suit and tie professional interviews, all nineteen of them. I literally owned only that one pair of shoes (no sandals, no boots, no sneakers), and I don't consider myself a minimalist in any sense of the term.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
MimAesthetic so true. As a style blogger, it takes active pruning to keep the shoe collection at 12 pairs. I also have to have shoes for two different climates (southwest and east coast). So for me, this is a minimalist collection. I could probably get rid of three pairs, which would bring it to 9, but I don't think that would satisfy many of these commenters' conceptions of minimalism. Also, it's important to recognize that minimalism (or striving to be a minimalist) is somewhat of a modern day luxury, often reserved for the wealthy (the kind of people who can own less and buy stuff or outsource as needed). Don't need your boots this year? Get rid of them so you can be a "minimalist" and buy another pair if need be, down the road. I think that documentary (linked above) glorifies minimalism across the board, but the fact is, it's not for everyone, and everyone's definition is (and should be) unique.
Ahmad Muliadi (1 year ago)
What do you do for maintenance of your shoes? I assume you do different thing/use different products for the different shoes
sean mckee (1 year ago)
Not a minimalist collection! 2-3 pairs is minimalist. 12 pairs is the average size set of mens shoes dude, unless your metro sexual.
BAT TT (1 year ago)
True, I can't think of a minimalist person would have 12 pairs of shoes! even worst the guy got more shoes other than the ones he's showing, don't think this is video is showing shoes collection for the minimalist. Minimalist should only have 3 at least - Chukka boots, Oxford Captoe Shoes and a pair of sneaker would be perfect.
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+sean mckee average, huh? Where'd you get that figure?
Myrslokstok (1 year ago)
Sorels are the brand for stay home moms in midleclas suburb in Stockholm, in scandinavia 🤓, so they are probably warm and nice. A lot of hanging around in the park with a coffe. Good video!

Zhe Wei Khor (1 year ago)
Hello! I love your channel content, not sure why I have only discovered the channel now. The walnut/cognac colour captoe like the AE pair you have there always look amazing, it looks like the dream shoe to have but as you said, they are less versatile compared to dark brown shoes. I do own some dark brown ones and Im really thinking of saving up for an Allen Edmonds cognac or walnut captoe but I'd like to hear your opinion on their versatility, what outfit/pants/colours they go well with and would i get alot of wear out of it
The Modest Man (1 year ago)
+Zhe Wei Khor I'd go dark brown first, then burgundy, then walnut - in terms of versatility. The walnut looks good with light and medium blues, all greens, light greys.
Ruben Avila (1 year ago)
I hate the winter boots style; I can't, for the life of me, figure out why people find them aesthetically please. But, that's just me. Cool video and love the suede chukkas!
Myrslokstok (1 year ago)
Ruben Avila Yes very much better!
Ruben Avila (1 year ago)
+Myrslokstok I'll take your word for it, but surely it can be defined to look better right?
Myrslokstok (1 year ago)
Ruben Avila If it is a lot of snow and it becomes 5+ you need something like a duckshoe. Especialy if it is in a country where you hava a bit of convex roads. Or when it is 20 minus.
