Somewhere between flip-flops and your dressiest shoes, lies one of our all-time favorite summer styles: the slip on. When it comes to men's slip on shoes, it's all about ease and sophistication. These easy-wearing slip ons are a warm-weather favorite around here, offering sockless freedom like a sandal while delivering a touch of refinement with their handsome leather designs.
Take leather loafers, for example, they're not your average pair of dress shoes. These slip on shoes are the perfect combination of practicality and style. Pair 'em with a tailored jacket and some slim-fit trousers and you're ready to turn heads.
Or we can go nautical – take the favored boat shoe for example. Let's get one thing straight - boat shoes aren't just for boating. Sure, they're designed to be worn on a slippery deck, but that doesn't mean they can't be worn on dry land. In fact, boat shoes are a great option for casual wear. They're comfortable, durable, preppy, and they look damn good. And let's not forget about the practicality of boat shoes. They're designed to be worn without socks, which means your feet can breathe on a hot summer day.
How about those leather sandals? Now there's a shoe that's perfect for a man who's not afraid to get his hands (or feet) dirty. We're not talking about flimsy flip flops --we're talking about a rugged pair of genuine leather sandals, like the Birkenstock Arizona Sandal for example. A good pair of Birkenstock sandals can take a beating and keep on ticking. They're designed for comfort and to handle rough terrain and tough conditions.
How can we fail to talk about men's moccasins? These suede shoes have been around for centuries for a reason – these men's slip on shoes are an American classic. Made from soft leather, moccasins conform to your feet over time. Take the Quoddy Grizzly Moc, with Durable Vibram Newflex outsole for lots of traction, these little wonders can add a touch of rustic charm to any outfit. Pair 'em with some jeans and a flannel shirt for a casual weekend look.
