Summer Shoes: The Slip-On

During the spring I wrote about my love for sneakers and the popularity they have gained. As we transition into summer, a high-top is not the most ideal to wear in hot weather, however, giving up the ease and casualness of a sneaker is not necessary. For the summer, a slip-on style is the perfect alternative to high-tops and winter sneakers.

The slip-on...well...slips-on, making is very easy and effortless. This trend is perfect for summer weekends and a great travel shoe for getting through airport security with ease. Additionally, the slip-on has become a modern alternative to finish off a more casual suit look. From suede to canvas and spikes, there is really an array of options when it comes to the slip-on. Here's a few of my favorites for all price ranges.

1. Gucci Woven Straw & Suede- I love the mixed textures of this shoe. The color palette would pair well with summer white pants or khaki shorts for a more casual look.

2. Rivieras- You cannot go wrong with a pair of Rivieras for the summer! They are so easy and comfortable. I love the French color theme of this pair. A great option to infuse a little European flair into any outfit.

3. Armani Jeans Canvas- The text overlay of this slip-on brings a modern appeal. A perfect option for those summer morning coffee runs or errands on the weekend.

4. Fred Perry 'Kingston Stampdown'- Fred Perry, for me, means iconic, classic styles that have an air of sophistication. This pair embodies the brand's preppy flair and would be great travel shoe whether going to the beach or the city.

5. Maison Martin Margiela Leather- I love the bright, bold color of this pair. They would add a vibrant splash of appropriate summer color when paired against a navy chino or short.

  1. What perfect timing. I was JUST thinking about what kind of comfortable sneaker I should get for my travels to NYC this summer. I hate wearing them with shorts, but I need them for all of the walking. I'm on the hunt!
