Casual Summer Shoes for Young looking guy who wears jeans

Hey guys,

I'm trying to look for a new pair of summer casual shoes. The complication is I look a bit young (20s), and I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with some of the more "elegant" styles.

My usual summer wardrobe is fairly simple - jeans, simple nice fit t-shirts, cotton blazers, or shirts.

I'm trying to find something that could replace sneakers (I think they're a bit kiddy). And was wondering if you guys have any suggestions?

I also didn't feel very right with the usual boat shoes, or espadrilles.


Thank you so much in advance.

If you're a young guy, I'm sure you want young girls, right? If so, you need this type of casual shoe:

Just get some nice boots. The Wings+Horns Service Boot in black is a good one. They look great with jeans and a t-shirt, they're not "kid like", and they are definitely not "elegant".

And trust your instincts about boat shoes-- they really only work well for a very specific style. Odds are that's not your style.
