When it comes to summer style and ease, men’s loafers are king. You might think that loafers are only for a business casual look, but that’s where you would be wrong.
Nowadays loafers come in all different looks and uses, some are made with rigid structure and are then worn for a more formal occasion, some are more like a moccasin and are easy to wear with jeans, or with a pair of shorts, and then there is the latest addition, the beach loafer.
So, I thought I’d show you my 3 favourite loafers for summer, that will have you covered from the beach right through to an upscale dinner, with really no thought at all.
A structured shoe usually works really well when dressed up, so when you’re putting on your blue summer suit, match it with a pair of these penny loafers and you’ll be good to go.
The Clarkdale Flow has a full grain leather sock liner that offers your feet top-notch comfort. A clever outsole made from leather and rubber makes it extra durable, and a removable footbed provides the option to make it even lighter.
The Summer Moccasin
When running around during summer, you still want to look stylish, and the easiest way to do that is by throwing on a moccasin. These loafers are a perfect pairing with blue jeans and can work perfectly for day or night while being super comfy and ultralight.
The Reazor Edge from the Clarks features traditional moccasin construction. These authentic driving moccs were made using an elegant last for a more formal look. With a flexible feel, these shoes combine a smooth black leather upper with a durable rubber sole and a veg tan leather footbed for superior comfort – ideal for barefoot wear.
The Beach Loafer
While I love the two pairs above, I wouldn’t wear them to the beach, so that’s where waterproof loafers come in, aka nice boat shoes.
The SWIMS Penny Loafer blends classic style and modern construction. Built with a ventilation and drainage system, a non-marking rubber outsole and cushy insole, this loafer is perfect for a day at the beach or on the boat.
So whether you have a summer wedding, a casual lunch or you’re heading out on your families boat (hint hint family) you’ll be ready to look great while still being comfy no matter what the summer brings your way.
