If you identify your style as more casual, The Lou Brown or The Lou Natural is a great addition to elevate any jeans and t-shirt look. Browns go with just about everything - blues, whites, greens, greys.

Swapping out your go-to sneakers with a pair of Lous is an easy switch without sacrificing any comfort. One of our favorite reasons to add a brown boot to your collection -- use a little brown polish on the leather and restore the boots to the glory of when you first purchased them at any time. 

 

The Lou Black

Something about a black boot always makes a look feel a little dressier. That is why we recommend The Lou Black if you are looking to up your business casual attire. Pair with a chino or dark denim, add a tailored button-down shirt, and you are out the door in minutes while always looking perfectly put together.

Just like the color brown, black is a low maintenance hue. Fill in scuffs and scratches with black polish as needed but overall this leather will look great no matter the miles of wear.  

 

The Lou Teak

The Lou Teak is perfect with a business look

Teak is always our most popular color. It's rich cognac glow adds interest and a pop of color to any look. If you have a more classic or refined wardrobe, adding a teak boot can easily create interest to your look. Teak also pairs well with browns and blacks so it's highly versatile nature makes this ideal for travel when you are looking for one style to carry across multiple looks. 

Teak is a color that really highlights any character in the boot. For this reason, each pair breaks in unique to the wearer. If you are looking for a style to tell your story, The Lou Teak is the way to go.
