Shoe Selection: Shoes to Keep You Cool

Gents, did you know that your feet contain more than 250 000 sweat glands? It’s kind of the body to have it’s very own air conditioning system, but nobody likes marching around in shoes soaked with sweat – especially at this time of year. So, if you need shoes that look and feel cool during the warmer months, then we’re here to tell you how to choose them, and there are so many to choose from! Here’s our list of sweet and sweaty-free footwear to keep you fresh all day.

1. Practical Sporty Styles

Sporty sneakers are also still on trend this summer, and athleisure is a look that’s cooking on the catwalks. Don’t underestimate the subtle impact of retro running shoes or trainers, paying special attention to quality design as well as breathability. If you plan on spending a lot of time outdoors this summer then sport-inspired styles are a reliable option.

2. Funky Fresh Styles

Some may find them too loud and bulky, but big chunky trainers are still trending in a big way at the moment. Every major brand has released a bright and bulky 90’s retro-inspired trainer design so there are a wide range of options to choose from, all you have to do is look for light, breathable fabric for summer time and you’re good to go.

If you’re not sure how to pull of this look, then keep these rules in mind and you’ll be fine.

  • Maximalist footwear looks great with colour matched outfits or in monochromatic tones.
  • Don’t match them with skinny jeans, or risk looking like you’ve borrowed your dad’s shoes for the day.
  • Rather go for shorts, or heavy denim straight-cut or turned up jeans to finish off the full nineties aesthetic.

3. Sandal Styles

 The leather sandal cannot be underestimated as the perfect summer shoe. Both breathable and comfortable, leather sandals keep your feet cool, and you fresh, all day. The ultimate smart/casual accessory, you can dress sandals up or down, or just mooch around the house in comfort and style, like a boss.

4. Cool Canvas Styles

You can never go wrong with your trusty canvas shoes. The ultimate feel-fresh-all-day fabric, canvas keeps your feet cool and comfy and goes with just about any casual summer look. Indoors or outdoors, canvas shoes are perfect for the gent with an active lifestyle, and the look just never goes out of style.
