This list of the top men's shoe designers includes many of the most recognizable names in the fashion industry. What is the best designer shoe for men?

If you're thinking about expanding your wardrobe, consider choosing from these men's shoe brands – and vote for your favorites. Also, feel free to make your own list of favorites.

What's the top designer shoe for men? The popular mens shoes on this list are of the highest quality, offering solid stitching, a finished insole, a very high-end, quality outsole, and a beautiful, classic design. They are made from strong materials and built to last (as they should, for the price). Some designers on this list do mass-produce men's shoes, but others make each pair of men's shoes by hand. The difference here is often the cost: A great pair of (handmade) John Lobb shoes, for example, can easily cost in the thousands of dollars.
