Desert boots – These unstructured suede boots were originally inspired by the crepe-soled boots worn by British officers during World War II.  They were a staple for many college students in the 1970s and it’s easy to see why.  The soft suede upper conforms to the foot while the lightweight crepe sole keeps feet comfortable.  Clarks offers a full selection of desert boots in different earth tones.  Another suede boot called a chukka offers a similar silhouette.  Both Puma and Frye offer stylish versions of the chukka.

Moccasin loafer – Nothing’s easier to slip into than a loafer, and this season’s soft moccasin-style loafers provide plenty of comfort without sacrificing style.  Both the Lacoste Concours and the Calvin Klein Deauville feature a suede or leather upper, moccasin stitching and a flexible treaded rubber outsole.

Mesh Slip-On – The simple canvas slip-on sneaker gets a new twist this season in the form of a breathable mesh upper.  A mesh slip-on offers all the freedom of a flip flop but provides a more stylish look.  This casual summer shoe is equally at home in town or on the beach.  Generic Surplus is currently the best source for mesh slip-on sneakers.  They also have solid canvas slip-ons in a variety of colours.
