This is the third blog in our 4 part series on slow fashion. The customer journey with A.McDonald Shoemaker does not end with the collection of your shoes but continues for the life of your shoes. The journey begins with your foot measurements.

In this guide, we take a look at the most prominent men's business shoes and lead you through the associated expectations of each style.
