What Men’s Shoes to Wear… to the Beach?
It’s time to hit the beach. Sandy strolls, romantic coast side dates and sun-soaked weekends are on the menu. Make sure you’re dressed for the occasion with the best beachside footwear options; functionality is the most important thing, so keep things practical for your time spent waterside. Let’s dive in.
Puma haven’t missed the memo: slides are in right now. This trend is easy, stylish and practical, so we’re definitely getting on board. These sandals are made from rubber with a wide, branded strap and they’re that easy slip-on shape we love with an open toe for kicking at the sand. The moulded sole and textured tread means they’re supremely comfortable. No-effort, maximum style.
Don’t be too quick to shy away from leather. If you’re hitting beach bars or restaurants, you can’t go wrong with a classic boat shoe. Specifically designed for wearing on boats, Sperry’s option features a rubber sole with a grippy tread, making it easy for wiping off after sandy strolls. It’s the perfect smart/casual option when paired with some chino shorts and a shirt for a date.
Spanish brand Maians is all about that beachy lifestyle, and their footwear reflects this relaxed ethos. Born in Barcelona, they focus on keeping things practical but stylish. The upper of their footwear is often made of soft cotton, jute or bamboo for easy cleaning and comfortable wear, whilst the designs reflect a playful vibe with nautical sea-blues a favoured palette. We especially like the designs with cut-out mesh details for breathable wear.
For the guy who is on-the-go, whether that’s a long beach hike or hitting the volleyball court with the kids, you need a secure and supportive sandal that can keep up with you. Stepwel offers a range of options with secure velcro fastenings and cross-over designs, ensuring you’re all strapped in and ready to go. Thick soles give you the grounding you need for breaking into a run (okay, gentle jog), whilst the designs are simple and casual.
Where will your shoes take you? The beaches of Barcelona or your local coastline? Wherever you go, do it in comfort and style.
