Meh, I wear Adidas sambas. Clubbing really isn't a classy thing to do, I don't see why some people dress up so much.

I've not been turned away yet. As long as you don't look like a wee fanny you should be fine.

Depends where you go. If your just going to some standard nightclub as long as you aren't in joggers etc. they wont care.

I know you can't wear trainers, and I can't wear smart shoes black ones with my jeans, so do I wear suede shoes or Ralph Lauren black shoes will those suffice? Can anyone send pictures and name me shoes please thanks!
It really depends.

The only places I have known to require proper shoes are some clubs in Mayfair and then it is a much less messy affair.

In your bog-standard club, if you wear expensive shoes, prepare for them to get covered in beer, scuffed and worn down.

Even world renowned clubs like Fabric and Ministry of Sound do not really care what you have on your feet.

Just don't wear football shoes or something along those lines and you'll be fine.

In Union clubs you can wear whatever you like on your feet. Most clubs in town don't care much either (I never wore tennis style trainers, but converse was fine), probably because they mainly get students either.

At smaller places in town, your shoes were probably one of the things bouncers looked at when deciding whether to let you in, so trainers wouldn't help there.

Basically, places catering to students aren't fussed. (Based on Sheffield experience)

depends completely on where your going, my local town will late you in with anything on your feet but bigger citys and better clubs might have a no trainer policy. I tend to stick to smart leather shoes anyway, look better and make it feel like a bit more of an occasion.

Black Vans are the best clubbing shoes in my opinion. Durable, but very comfortable and airy. Student club nights aren't classy at all. In fact, dressing up with a smart shirt, trousers and shoes will make you look out of place in most student clubs. Student unions are the most lenient in terms of footwear. You can pretty much wear anything... my friend wore his rainbow coloured Nikes before.


DO NOT wear suede to a club. They will get completely wrecked, trust me, based on experience.

In the last 3/4 years i've only ever been turned away from one club for not wearing smart shoes. I nearly always wear my everyday shoes/trainers. The only time i'd wear smart black shoes is if i'm also wearing a shirt and smart trousers, which is not very often at all if i'm going to night club

Don't wear suede. Don't wear anything remotely delicate or that you care too much about because they will get absolutely ruined in the average studenty club.

Wear shoes you either don't care much about, or clean up easily, or just dedicate one pair to clubbing which you know will be useless for any other purpose.

You can wear whatever the **** you like, barring flip flops and maybe sandals
Also there's no need to inform the forum your shoes are Ralph Lauren
