    Working on a new pair as we speak.

    I have an order in for a pair of shoes with Quoddy.

    I bought some cheap navy canvas sneakers at H&M the other day, and they are working pretty well for casual wear. I also like flip flops, but mine are currently broken. I am looking in to some leather sandals as well.

    Canvas sneakers (with my options right now being low top chucks in blue or light gray), Camp mocs (same general idea as a boat shoe) or leather slides on the sandal side, I don't like how flip flops feel.

    Beat-to-death CG penny loafers, because it occurred to me that I could buy boat shoes, or I could spend the same scratch and get a new pair of penny loafers/cycle down my old ones.

    I also have a pair of bad-taste tassel mocs with a missing tassel and a fake-gator vamp. They're comfortable, though.

    My pet peeve is seeing middle aged, middle income white American men, usually at a diner on a Sunday lunchtime, wearing a polo and overly baggy pleated dockers khaki shorts. They usually have bowed legs that couldn't stop a pig in a passage and spindly ankles with no socks and loafers. Please don't join this ubiquitous throng.

    Gazelles or Stan Smiths, short socks pushed down. Chuck Taylors or similar could work. Not those ugly Purcells with the stupid looking smiley face rubber toecaps.

    White, American, young, poor. Two of those I'm stuck with, one of those I wish I could keep, and one I'll give up at the drop of a hat. Still gonna wear loafers without socks when I wear shorts, because if I'm wearing shorts, I'm basically in "I'd rather be naked but I'm too polite and might have to sit on something hot" mode.

    R: What summer shoes do you wear with shorts and untucked short sleeve shirt?

    AI'm using a pair of brown driver shoes by Tommy Hilfiger.

    Some five or six year old Sperry Gold Cup boat shoes. Other than a couple of eyelets coming loose, they appear to be indestructible and are comfortable as all get out. Those or my Keen H2O's.

    The only silver lining to our puppy chewing up my ancient LL Bean moose hide house shoes is that it removed the temptation to put them on to run down to the post office or corner gas station.

    Olukai leather sandals (or Reef). Similar to this:

    Or boat shoes. Currently slip-on ones by Reaction by Kenneth Cole, from STP. I know I know, don't hate - they were cheap with the super-secret coupon and look pretty much like other boat shoes:
