Summer is all about comfortable and casual dressing, especially as the temperatures rise. In fact, the best men’s casual shoes for summer straddle the line between effortlessness and well-considered style, all while keeping you cool and collected.
Whether you’re wearing them to a neighbourhood barbeque, to watch the match, or to while away the hours in a sunny pub garden, a pair of go-to casual summer shoes is a wardrobe non-negotiable.
And so are the must-have comfort features. Padded ankle cuffs, cushioned footbeds and ultra-flexible soles will all see you make the most of your leisure time.
Finding your laidback summer style just got easier thanks to our men’s casual shoe sale.
Not sure which style to go for? From cheap men’s loafers to men’s boat shoes on sale, this is the definitive guide to our most sought-after casual summer shoes for men.
Not just for sea-faring adventures, men’s slip-on boat shoes boast effortless style in a comfortable profile.
Identifiable due to their piped toe and leather lace detail, the boat shoe is near iconic when it comes to casual style.
Traditionally fashioned in smooth leathers and situated on a patterned or ‘siped’ sole (for better traction on wet boat decks) you can always switch up tradition by opting for soft suede instead.
Pair with shorts when the sun is shining, and trousers when there’s wind in the sails – no socks necessary.
As far as casual shoes go, nothing says leisure like men’s driving moccasins.
Born from a desire to have comfortable, flexible shoes to wear while taking your sportscar out for a spin at the weekends, driving shoes took over the mantel from more rigid classics, such as Oxfords and Derby silhouettes.
Like most men’s moccasin shoes, drivers are generally lightweight in nature.
This makes them ideal slip-ons for warmer days, whether you intend to wear them for a long drive in the country, or for just mooching about town.

Take It Easy
The list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the ultimate casual summer footwear choice: men’s summer sandals.
Slip-on sandals are without a doubt the easiest style to pull off this season. To achieve that all-important balance, choose slip-ons with a little something about ‘em. Buckles, cork, and braided details hit the right style note.
Otherwise, strappy and fisherman sandals settle the score between well-considered style and effortlessness with ease.
About as comfortable as your at-home slippers, look for the support details that will make all the difference when the aim of the day is to just take it easy. Cushioned footbeds and supple leather straps will see you stepping in the right direction where comfort is concerned.
Neutral tones (think browns and beige) offer the most versatility, especially when the sun is shining, and lighter colour clothing is preferable over heat-absorbing black.
Pair with khakis, cargos, or chinos and a loose-fitting shirt to nail the weekend look. Oh, and don’t forget to pack them in your holiday suitcase too.
Get Your Kicks
We could go on and on (and on) about the merits of a good pair of leather trainers.
Ideal for situations when your well-worn runners just won’t cut it, leather trainers keep you looking casual and presentable, always. A form-fitting style is favourable, with fuss-free fastenings such as classic laces to keep things simple. Style with denims for off-duty days out.
Comfort features make all the difference when it comes to kicks you can chill out in.
Look for padded cuffs and cushioned footbeds, as well as lightweight, shock-absorbing soles, that will see you relaxing in total comfort from after work drinks through to the weekend and beyond.
