SPOTLIGHT ON 

The best shoes for summer

3 May 2018 



The days of thinking about which footwear is least likely to cave in when the rain hits are almost out of sight, and we couldn’t be happier about it. A new season is here, and it’s time to make your wardrobe reflect that. Gone are the days of wind-rain-and snow-proof shoes and here to stay are loafers and boat shoes, lightweight trainers and even sliders for when the time is right.




SHOP ALL MEN'S SHOES

Trainers



The key with trainers is to invest in styles that you can get away with wearing both for work and at weekends (unless, of course, trainers are strictly a no-no in your office). Pick wisely by choosing neutral colours that’ll go with tailored trousers and jeans alike.




SHOP ALL TRAINERS

Loafers and boat shoes



If you’re looking for something a little smarter, break away from the brogues and Derbies you grew used to over the winter and instead freshen things up by choosing suede or leather boat shoes or loafers in classic colours such as navy and brown. Pair with tailored chinos and a crisp Oxford shirt, and you’re good to go.




SHOP ALL LOAFERS & BOAT SHOES

Flips flops and sliders



Whether you’re planning a holiday or are just optimistic about the great British weather, there should be room in every man’s wardrobe for a decent selection of proper summer footwear. Depending on where you’re going or what you’re doing, don’t be afraid to add sliders or flip-flops into the mix – they’re perfect for chilled weekends and lazy holidays alike.
