These are one of the easiest footwear styles to slip on and go. Breathable, comfortable and available in a wider range of colours than most other summer shoes, the design that hasn’t changed since 1935 is really a bit of a year-rounder. What’s more summer than slipping on a pair of deck shoes without socks? Whether you’re hitting the beach or the park they’re good to go with any outfit.
We get it: not every guy is comfortable in open-toed footwear even in the heat. To get the same care-free summer vibes without having your toes on show, look to a pair of canvas kicks. Light, comfortable and easy to pack, they’re a holiday no-brainer.
This is the NYE of the party shoe list, a heeled loafer is a classic summer shoe alternative. A loafer is defined as being a heeled, lace-less, slip-on shoe, typically with a moccasin-style toe. The lack of laces points towards a refined nonchalance, while the heeled sole keeps things formal enough to be worn with a suit. This probably isn’t an everyday shoe for most guys but you’ll get plenty of wear out of it, whether that be at balmy evening functions or late-night outdoor dinners.

A more casual summer shoe option is the sneaker, born over 50 years ago. The original tennis shoe has evolved to a wide range of flat-bottomed sneakers, typically with a white sole. With breathability and versatility in its favour, the tennis sneaker is hard to pass up when picking an outfit. Unfussy white leather kicks now get a pass at almost every summer event, so it’s worth buying a pair that will last.
The ultimate weekender shoe. Sandals really can take the heat and are really just a short step away from being barefoot – and we adore them for it. Somehow this shoe blurs the line between hanging out at home and being out in public, and this just typifies what summers should be all about.
Whatever the shoe and whatever the party outfit, we have exactly what you need to step out in style this party season.
