What do you guys wear with shorts? Classic sneakers is probably an obvious choice, but I am trying to find something a little more dressed up to wear with button-down shirts.

I try to get myself to like Sperry's and/or casual penny loafers, but I can't quite get there. Maybe I just need to try it out for awhile to get used to it, but I'm not looking for the sailor look. Something more rugged. Not looking for flip-flops/sandals either.

Any recommendations?

Shorts and dressed up?

Mocs, drivers, loafers, mules, thongs, summer lace ups all work

I usually do a classic pair of kicks; Stan Smith, low cut Chuck's or plain white lace up Vans.

It depends entirely on the shorts and the occasion. I wear loafers, sperry's, driving shoes, mocs, etc. With the exception of flip flops; only when I'm in the beach.
