3 SHOES WE WANT TO WEAR – WHEN THE SUMMER HEAT IS AT ITS HIGHEST
All right, let’s just be honest. Even though we love leather shoes like brogues, loafers and monk straps, they are not made for the warmest summerdays. So when the summer heat is at its highest, we usually hide the leather away and jump into more casual and breathable footwear.
Off course sneakers are our go-to selection, but other more surprising silhouettes are also among our favorites this summer season. The favorites includes the iconic espadrilles and …… are you ready?…… the pool slides. Sounds a bit crazy with pool slides in our sartorial univers, we know. So we will explain below.
Here are of our favorites shoe silhouettes to wear when then summer heat reach its highest.
We start our with the obvious choice. Off course sneakers are our go-to shoe numero uno. And when it’s summer, we usually go for the minimalistic white ones. Among our favorites, we always have the iconic Archilles from Common Projects, but we also have a weakness for 70’s from Converse and the Margiela Replica style.
But what is it with those minimalistic white kicks? In our opinion the white sneaker is simply just super fresh in any given situation. No matter if you wear an off white double breasted linen suit or a pair of jeans mixed with a short sleeved shirt and a tie, the white sneakers are simply a phenomenal and stylish choice.
Going even more casual than sneakers? Choose the iconic espadrilles. Yeah, really! Many of the greatest fashion houses has made their interpretation of the silhouette this summer. And trust us when we say, that you will look fresh as ….. while wearing a pair. Whether you’re on the beach or rocking your sharpest suit and tie, the shoe is a both a casual, cool and bold choice.
THE POOL SLIDES
We would never have thought that it could be cool to wear a pair of pool slides. We mean NEVER, EVER! Especially not in a sartorial menswear context. But the leading fashion houses have got us on other thoughts. The pool slides are to find in every collection right now.
We know it’s a bold choice, so our tip is to go for luxury, if you consider pool slides combined with a summer suit for example. But if you manage to pull it off, you will look summery, simple and elegant. Thank us later 😉
