The time to pack up the winter boots and start getting around in comfortable, light footwear has finally arrived. Relaxed summer outfits provide a great opportunity to play around with colours, textures and interesting styles that may be impractical for the colder days. Even a more conservative 9-5 look can be freshened up with the right footwear. 

We've broken down the best shoe styles to complete your summer look, whether you're hitting the beach on vacation, trying to keep cool in an office, attending a formal event or just kicking back on the weekend. 

 

ESPADRILLES 

Espadrilles are the ultimate laid back shoe; perfect for relaxing, travelling (they're super light, comfortable and pack down to nothing) and casual summer events. A canvas pair will make for a smarter alternative by the pool to your flip flops, while a suede espadrille is an effortless yet elegant way to complete a relaxed tailoring look. Espadrilles pair perfectly with a pair of cotton walking shorts and a t-shirt on the weekend, or with a linen suit for an easy summer event outfit.

CANVAS SNEAKERS

A pair of cream canvas sneakers will never go out of style, and are a fail safe for any holiday activity. There's not much they can't be paired with in the summertime, and their lightness and breathability makes them hard to beat when it comes to comfort. They're a very easy way to dress down a tailored look, and a fresh, clean pair is acceptable at most summer events.

DRIVING SHOES 

Driving shoes are just as easy to style as a pair of sneakers. They're elegant, understated and will mould to the shape of your foot over time for a super comfortable fit. Wear them with tailoring or with a pair of jeans on the weekend. Ours are made by hand in Northern Italy from the finest supple calf leather; they're a truly luxurious and beautiful driver.

LEATHER LOAFERS

These are the perfect shoes to take you from the office to the pub. They're a slightly more sophisticated summer option that covers you for those occasions where you need to be a little more dressed up. We offer beautiful custom made loafers, with two styles and a wide range of materials and colours to choose from, so you can make them as formal or as relaxed as you need. Get in touch to order yours.
