Summer shoes

post #1 of 206
Thread Starter 
Outside of band aid colored dress shoes and Jack Purcells, I've never given them much thought. Can you guys give me a run down? In particular, I'd appreciate somebody telling me the differences between dirty and white bucks, but also any other good suggestions would be welcome.

Lobb makes a great one.

Boat shoes are an excellent choice for summer. Good with shorts, khakis or jeans.

I have dirty bucks as well. Great with jeans or khakis. Also would likely be good with a summer suit.

I'm not sure about white bucks. Seems to me you need to live below the Mason-Dixon and wear seersucker suits with bow ties to pull them off.

I thought that you would be attracted by that epitome of manliness.
The shoes you are looking for are from C&J, Newquay in ginger suede on the 341 last (which is called "bulbous" by some blasphemic forumites).

Wait, cordovan longwings aren't summer shoes?

I wear boat shoes and penny loafers during summer. Dirty bucks would be a great choice.

Are you talking about for wearing with a suit, coat and tie or more casual wear?

+1.. those are not summer shoes..

I actually wear the plain old, inexpensive JCrew version of the buck in summer. I bought mine a couple of years ago, in white and tan, but these are pretty similar:

Ominously, they are "imported" now, whereas the ones I have are at least made in Italy.

Having left Chuck Taylors behind forever once I picked up a 3 handle, I bought these (the tan colored ones) when I want to wear something sneaker like with shorts..

And there's always the good old topsider when all else fails..

If i'm wearing shorts, it means I already don't care about how I look = boat shoes or worse. If I do care how I look, unlined penny loafers.

I find suede tassel loafers to be far nicer summer shoes than the ubiquitious boat shoes.
On the other hand, boat shoes are part of the uniform.

I think the thing for me is that bare feet and suede just seem to = sweaty feet in my mind.. I am not sure if it is true, because I have never done it, but they just seem like they would be hot..
