To spend an entire season with a single (or maybe two) pair of footwear is such a guys thing! I mean, what's the need right? Eh... Wrong. Times have changed. It's 2021 and there's nothing manly about dragging the same ol' pair of shoes with every outfit all throughout the year. It's just an outdated approach towards fashion which not many people appreciate. But for those of you who do, summers are almost here and it's the perfect opportunity to refresh your footwear closet.

 

Be it sneakers, loafers, espadrilles and more... every shoe has its purpose. And here's a list of the 10 such summer shoes for men who like to set trend.

 

 

1. Blue Espadrilles By WROGN From Myntra

 

Price

INR 1,099

 

Espadrilles are by far the best alternative for summer sandals. These are nothing but classic Spanish slip-on sneakers made up of canvas material and rope sole. I think it's safe to say that they are one of the most lightweight and comfortable summer shoes for men. The colours black, navy and tan are the most versatile picks for the season. Style these quirky espadrilles with blue denim jeans and a graphic t-shirt for a super cool summer look.

Classic white sneakers are must-have footwear for men. They are an all-season, all-situation type of men's shoes that looks great with everything. You wear it with a t-shirt and denim jeans... it's a clean-cut casual summer look. And if you style it with a casual blazer and pants you get a semi-formal look for parties. That's the magic of their simplicity. They're versatile, very comfy and leaves a lot of room for experimentation and styling. But make sure you avoid the ones with big logos and graphics for a slick look. However, I'd still give the branded ones a pass.
