Summer Shoes

Finding the right footwear for the warm summer months can be difficult. You have to think is the shoe breathable as well as comfortable, today were looking at some summer staples and how you can wear them.


Wearing a more formal pair of men’s shoes in the summer might not have crossed your mind. However, you can wear a nice pair of Brogues in the heat of the summer as long as you can make sure that the rest of your outfit is right.

To get a great summer look with smart shoes, you should make sure the rest of the outfit is more relaxed. Try wearing a pair of brogues with a pair of chino shorts in a bright, summery colour such as beige or stone. Teamed with a plain white T-shirt or fitted short sleeve shirt and a pair of tortoiseshell shades, this will give you a formal twist to that relaxed summer look.

Slip ons/Loafers

Loafers are such a versatile style to own as they can be worn casually or with a more formal look.

For a dressed down summer look, try wearing a pair of tan or brown suede Loafers with a pair of light coloured trousers or shorts such as some stone chinos or linen trousers and a lightweight shirt.

For a smarter look in the evening, team a darker coloured pair of loafers with a pair of fitted trousers or jeans. Don’t dismiss a thin jumper, because, as we all know, it can get chilly in the evenings during the summer months. You can also wear no socks with your shoes, as this keeps it stylish and a bit cooler during the summertime.


The best men’s sneakers will be the ones that you always turn to most when you want something airy and comfortable when you’re walking around. 

A darker leather or suede pair are great with jeans and t shirt for a more relaxed look. Although a classic white trainer shouldn’t be underestimated. Its ability to be worn with a multitude of looks, styles and colours make it a very versatile piece. For a great summery look, take your white trainers and team them with a pair of shorts and a shirt or T-shirt for more casual dressing.

Boat Shoes

Boat shoes are one of the most classic pair of summer shoes you can own. Boat shoes were a massive trend a few years ago and we are starting to see them come back. As they say, the classics never die.

A pair of brown boat shoes are the go to summer style. They are made in a classic shape, giving them a timeless feel and are available with a slim summer sole or a more rugged sole for wear all year round. Try wearing them with a pair of black or raw denim jeans and a plain white tee for a comfortable and casual look this summer. 

Desert Boot

Desert boots have long since been a classic staple of footwear for men. Stemmed from practicality in the desert (hence the name), these are lightweight summer casuals with a comfortable crepe sole.

Try a pair of desert boots in beige or brown, teamed with a casual flannel shirt and a pair of raw denim jeans. However you wear desert boots you cant go wrong.
