There are plenty of colors to choose from, but you can’t go wrong with navy or dark olive.
Price: $190 at Belk
Clothes and accessories are always risky, so you have to be sure of your dad’s style and size. But this suave pair of Cole Hann oxfords from Belk are too fashionable not to have a look. They’re lace-up with an almond toe and rubber heel. They’ll complement trousers and pants, and pair perfectly with a range of cool tones. These are suede, so they will also require tender love and care (read about maintenance of suede shoes here).
