Ask your girlfriend how many shoes she has. The answer is probably a hundred or close to it. Even if that isn't the case, you've probably noticed she wears a different pair for every outfit.
It's because she knows there's a right match for every OOTD. And that doesn't just mean wearing sneakers of a different color to complement the get-up of your choice. You'll want to wear the right type, too.
What are these shoes? Here are five that will truly add versatility to your wardrobe:
1) Boat shoes
These sailing slip-ons aren't just reserved for seaside adventures, they make you look #SoChill during your Sunday stroll or quick Tagaytay getaway with the girlfriend. Wear with cuffed pants or chinos.

It may not be cold in our country, but its ruggedness prepares us for anything that our daily commute might throw at us—muddy weather, people stepping on our kicks, motorcycles rolling over our feet, anything.

These are different from regular leather shoes because of the decorative perforations all over it. Worn with slacks or dark denim, this pair adds to your gentleman vibe. Great for all those times when the invite says "smart casual."

A pair of espadrilles is a necessity in your shoe selection because in case you've forgotten, you live in a country where the sun shines like there's no tomorrow. Light, comfortable, and casual, you can rock these with shorts while chillin' like a villain with your brother from another mother. (Okay, we'll stop.) But you get the point: espadrilles = king of the casual hang.
