3 Classic Slip-on Shoes For A Stylish Summer Look


It’s official, Summer is open for business! Not only is the sun shining, but thanks to everyone‘s hard work since that fateful day in March, we are all able to start socialising again from July the 4th.

So, when you do finally get together with your friends you’ll want to be the most stylish you there is.

That said, Summer footwear can often be a challenge for the well-dressed gentleman more used to a fine English Oxford than a sockless moccasin, driving shoe, or loafer.

That’s where we come to the rescue with our 3 classic slip-on shoes for a stylish Summer look:

1. The Loafer
Let’s start with the loafer which is the ultimate in stylish and versatile footwear that can be dressed up or down to provide a classic look that works as well with a suit as it does with a pair of chinos.

Loake Eton Loafer - Plum Suede

Northampton Shoes & Boots recommends these great pair of penny loafers from Loake at £160. The plum suede finish is as flexible as it is distinctive.


2. The Driving Shoe
Next up is the driving shoe which, as the name suggests, was originally developed in the 1960s to embrace the driving culture, providing the wearer with a more comfortable driving experience.

Essentially, the driving shoe is a combo of the penny loafer’s smartness and the moccasin’s comfort, and is the perfect accompaniment to any Summer casual outfit.

Cheaney Donnington Driving Moccasin - Sienna Calf

Our pick for you is the Cheaney Donnington driving shoe in sienna calf at just £135.


3. The Moccasin
Last but by no means least is the moccasin and let’s also make one thing clear - most slip-ons are, in essence, a type of moccasin (but there’s no need to get technical here).
Barker William Moccasin - Navy Perforated Hand Painted

Summer is an opportunity to add some colour into your wardrobe and so we’ve picked out this pair of stunning blue Barker William moccasins with a perforated hand-painted finish, a seasonal must-have at only £135.
