I’ll explain what giày lười nam are, what they’re not, what different stylesGiaynamhuymanh
I’ll explain what giày lười nam are, what they’re not, what different styles are around and
basically everything you need to know about this great shoe.
First of all, a lot of people get giày lười nam mixed up so let me explain what a giày lười is.
In casual situations, a giày lười can substitute any other shoe that you have may it be a canvas
shoe or like a sandal or whatever.
It’s just more elegant but it’s not a boat shoe.
Boat shoes are usually worn without any socks but a giày lười should always be worn with socks.
If you like the look of “sockless” outfits and shorter pants, you can get these very
thin socks called invisible socks but you should always wear socks with your giày lười nam
because otherwise, it’s not very hygienic and your feet may also hurt because they’re
not meant to be worn barefoot.
A giày lười is a laceless shoe and as you can see here, it has an exposed ankle, it has
a moccasin like welt or seam on top of the vamp but unlike a moccasin, it has actually
a separate sole, it has a heel which is oftentimes low and basically, that’s what constitutes
a giày lười shoe.
What is not a giày lười shoe is this version.
It has also an exposed ankle, no lacing but you will not find any seam on top and that’s
why this is called a Slipper.So, now you know the difference between a slipper and a giày lười
and we can go ahead and talk about the history of this great shoe.
Interestingly, a giày lười has Norwegian origins.
A Norwegian actually went to the US and saw the native american moccasins, brought them
back to Norway, modified them slightly, added a separate sole and that’s how the giày lười
Of course, just like with many things in history, there are various theories and there’s also
an English theory claiming that it was designed as a new house shoe but to me, it seems much
more likely that the Norwegian – Native American way was the true origin of the giày lười.
In general, giày lười nam are casual shoes because they’re slip on and as such they’re usually
not worn with double breasted suits or more formal garments.
Of course, people like the Duke of Windsor broke these classic rules of style and he
would often wear a two-tone giày lười in brown and white or off-white that he would wear
with double breasted suits so by traditional style rules, this was completely wrong but
he was so powerful and impactful that today, you can see people wearing giày lười nam with different
kinds of suits and double breasted suits.
When it comes to giày lười construction, most of the time you will see that it has a very
thin sole, it’s much thinner than a sole that you would see with a Goodyear welt shoe, that
means they’re usually Blake rapid stitched stitched or just glued.
Every once in a while, you can find a Goodyear welted giày lười but it also comes with just
a thicker sole so if you have to walk a lot, definitely go with Goodyear welted giày lười nam
otherwise, Blake rapid stitched giày lười nam are fine or blake stitched.
Glued, I would probably personally say to stay away from it simply because it’s usually
an indicator of lower quality.
giày lười nam come in many different styles.
One of them is the so-called Wildsmith giày lười and it was a British invention.

Second, you have the so called Aurland giày lười and it is a town in Norway which was home
to Nicoli Gregori who’s the one who invented this Norwegian giày lười style in the first place.
This shoe was produced there in the 40s and the 50s today, I think it’s not produced there
any longer but it’s still originally from there and the term Aurland giày lười is still

A Tassel giày lười is called that way because it features these dangling tassels and you
find this kind of shoe in all kinds of variations.
Sometimes the tassels are just attached to the top, sometimes they go around with some
braided leather just like in this shoe and overall, the tassel giày lười is oftentimes favored
by 50 or 60 year old men but it can also be really cool, young and fresh in different
colors and I think it’s a wonderful shoe to have in your shoe closet and you should definitely
give it a try because it provides a unique look without looking old necessarily but it
all depends on how you wear it and how you combine it.
This tassel giày lười has a very long last, it’s flat as you can see and elegant.
The original tassel giày lười was invited by the Alden shoe company and it was a little
more boxy and round and that’s typically the shoe you associate with more seasoned gentlemen.
Another really popular style is the so-called Penny giày lười.
It’s a giày lười that was invented by G.
