Men's black round toe shoes made by master craftsmen at HELM Boots.

Round toe leather shoes are a great staple for anyone to have in their closet. They are very versatile shoes and are easy to style with any pair of pants or jeans. Round toe leather shoes tend to lean more on the casual side, so we recommend dressing more casual when wearing round toe boots. The simplicity of their design allows you to wear them from season to season. Round toe leather boots, especially black leather, are very easy to maintain and they stay looking brand new even as you transition seasons. They are a better fit for wide feet and generally a very comfortable boot.   

The first type of round toe boots I would like to talk about are work boots. Round toe leather work boots are made to be well suited and comfortable for those workers spending a lot of time standing on the job. Because black leather is famously the easiest to maintain, it shows character less readily. This type of round toe black leather boot is usually seen to have shorter shafts and heels. The toes on this type of boot are called ‘U’ toe or ‘W’ toe and can be fitted with added protection. The Muller boot in black is a great reinterpretation of a classic work boot. Its fully lined upper gives it a glove-like feel and a clean and sophisticated look. 

Another type of round toe leather boot is the western cowboy boot. Traditionally this type of boot has a tapered forefoot that is rounded off at the end and is called an ‘R’  toe. Round toe western style boots are ideal footwear for the avid rider. The round toe leather cowboy boots are made with the traditional long shaft and are designed and suitable and considered safe for many long hours in the saddle. Round toe western style boots are still extremely popular to wear as dress boots and perfect for those who would like to achieve a different but still fashionable look.

Another type of round toe leather shoes is the ever popular chukka boot. This type of boot was usually made from calfskin or leather and were very popular throughout the 20th century, and they still are in the 21st century. They are a very versatile boot that can be worn with a smart suit for formal occasions or with denim jeans for a more casual look. Round toe black leather chukka boots look fantastic and fashionable with most types of dress trousers and suits for the office or other occasions, where dressing smart is a must. The black leather Declan boot is a fresh take on this traditional chukka boot. Handcrafted with black Balthazar leather, a poured rubber insert, and a stacked leather sole, this version of a chukka boot is made with both style and longevity in mind. 

Combat boots are yet another important style of leather boots incorporating a round toe. Combat boots are designed to be worn by soldiers either in battle or training. Most modern day combat boots are designed for foot protection and ankle stability when walking on rugged ground and are in most cases fully waterproofed. Men’s black round toe shoes often give off this same military aesthetic. Some combat boots are now specialized for different climates and uses.

Jungle boots, desert boots, and cold weather boots all can have one thing in common: the round toe. Mountain or outdoor pursuit boots are round toe style boots, and they are designed to be worn specifically over rough ground .The versatile nature of these men's black round toe shoes make them popular for extreme weather conditions and are worn by mountain rangers and rescue paramedics.

Outdoor activity boots are designed for your comfort and safety and once again most are round toe leather shoes. A high ankle is required to provide support when trekking on steep or rough ground and to give added protection from mud and water and to keep the foot dry. For some outdoor activities it is advisable and recommended to have a pair of round toe black leather boots that are comfortable and versatile to cope with any conditions you come across like water snow or any type of slippy conditions.

The boots you choose are the most important part of your kit so you must maintain them correctly and they must be fit for your intended purpose. For all types of men's black round toe leather boots please shop here
