Spring/Summer Shoe Styles For the Guys

summer shoes

Fratelli Rossetti - Tassel Loafer (Mandorla) - FootwearThe tasseled loafer can be dressy or dresses up your casual clothes. Leather is preferred over suede for looks and durability. If you only buy one pair make it tan. Tan goes with everything.

John Varvatos - Sid Eva Derby (Khaki) - FootwearAnother hit is the derby, the suede tie-up shoe. Perfect for the warmer months because suede breathes. Dressed up or down they look great no matter the outfit. They come in many colors but beige and navy are the choice this season.

Sebago - Claremont Brogue (Cinnamon/Bronze) - FootwearThe two-tone brogue has been around since the sixteenth century thanks to the Irish and Scottish agricultural workers of that time. What makes this shoe great is that it accentuates your attire. The brogue goes with just about anything but looks best with dressy clothes. When choosing a pair stick to subtle colors that will stay in style for years to come.

Original Penguin - Espy Suede (Nomad) - FootwearWhen we think tropical summer shoes espadrilles come to mind. This year quality materials like suede, canvas and leather are the way to go. Nothing looks better than espadrilles paired with linen pants and a button up shirt. Espadrilles are not for formal wear unless the bride and groom are getting married on the beach.

JD Fisk - Marc (Tan) - FootwearLast but not least is the double monk-strap. Worn by monks around the eleventh century they provided more protection than sandals. Double monks accentuate your attire with its unique style. For even more attention leave one of the buckles undone.

So to sail through the summer get shopping for the five must-haves. Remember to stick to subtle shades like tan or navy so your kicks with go with what you’ve got.
