When the weather starts to heat up taking off our shoes seems to be the first way to cool down. We choose to walk barefoot along the beach, choose comfort over style and throw out the lace-ups in favour of thongs. However, you can’t avoid shoes all season. We have found five shoe styles that will keep every man cool this season.
1. The Loafer
When you’re too hot and bothered to tie your laces, loafers are a great alternative. They are stylish and comfortable without ever being too restrictive. Loafers are a more stylish option than espadrilles which are great option for a Sunday morning coffee run.
2. The Boat Shoe
3. The Suede Shoe
Suede— the summer alternative to leather. Everything from a classic derby to a chukka boot is available in suede and will cover all you on all occasions. While black is always a safe option, for summer, try something lighter, like sand or navy blue.
4. The Sneaker
No shoe collection is complete without a stylish pair of sneakers. And, with so many designers doing collaborations with shoe labels, there is no reason to not have the hottest pair this season.
5. The Oxford
The Oxford shoe is a style icon and should be in your wardrobe all year round. Always make sure you have a pair this shoe in black, but for summer, try mixing it up with a brown pair or some brogue detailing.
