Summer is a great time to play around with colour and texture, and your shoes should be no exception. The Dubarry Port comes in a diverse range of colours, so you have the freedom to experiment. A deck shoe such as the Dubarry Port is an excellent choice for any man who likes to spend his time on deck, or by a pool. Style with a pair of cropped jeans and a crisp white linen shirt for a casual outfit. Add a smart linen blazer for those summer evenings.
The Barker Selby is a stylish tassel slip-on loafer in quality European suede. This versatile shoe is perfect for spring and summer and would make a great statement piece for any outfit. Pair with light suit trousers and a simple shirt for an easy summer wedding look.

The Moreschi Bahamas are the perfect men’s summer shoes for long drives, or for padding around an Italian Villa - if you’re fortunate enough. Whatever you have planned this summer these loafers are a perfect choice. The perforated calfskin suede is the statement feature of these eye-catching loafers. You will be sure to be noticed.
Choose the right summer shoes
We know finding good men’s summer shoes can be difficult. So follow these general tips for finding the right summer shoes for you:
- If Derbies are typically your shoe of choice then we would advise you to invest in a pair of loafers, which can also be smart but are far kinder to hot feet.
- Sandals can be refreshing, but not suitable for a spectacularly wide range of occasions. For a smarter look, try a boat/deck shoe.
- If you’re going for a ‘sockless’ look to stay cool, but prefer to keep your feet covered, try a discreet ‘no-show’ sock like these Pantherella Seville Socks. These are breathable and can be worn under any shoe type.
So there you have it. A handpicked selection of men’s summer shoes and some tips for choosing the right summer footwear for you. For some shoe care advice for the hotter months check out our guide for protecting your shoes from sun damage.
