15 of the best sandals for your summer adventures.
It's that time of year again: summer travel plans are being made, and the wardrobes to accompany them are being built. (Fans of Slim Aarons and his knack for documenting the posh lives of the Palm Beach elite understand that the latter is very important). For men, what one wears on their feet in the summer leans towards light leather sneakers or flexible Belgian loafers. But, if you are hanging out poolside or on the beach, these options are hardly appropriate. Sandals will have to do, and luckily, there is a good batch of them on the market that are both stylish and airy for your toes.
For those who are wondering how to make men's sandals into a fashionable moment, here's a styling tip: pair them with loose trousers. During the last Spring 2023 men's season, sandals were paired with long loose pants at Brioni, Saint Laurent, and Versace, while Etro and Hermes sent a few sandals paired with shorts. Complete the look with an open loose shirt (this writer is a fan of linen or chiffon silk) layered over a tank top.
Or, you can take your inspiration from old Ralph Lauren ads and pair your sandals with white or khaki trousers with a shirt tucked into them. Either is an ideal result for the aesthetically driven. Below, we've rounded up some of the best sandals on the market: from stylish leather sandals, to water-friendly, and even the best for the outdoors.
A well made sandal that does well in both the style and comfort departments.

Another elegant sandal choice that works well from day to night. The crossover design and metal buckle make for a contemporary look.

For those who are heading into the great outdoors, Teva sandals never cease to fail. Made of quickly drying recycled plastic and grip outsoles, these slippers are meant to handle any sort of terrain.
If you're a no fluff kind of person, why not opt-in for a simple sandal? Quiksilver, heralds of the active beachside lifestyle, has options, of course. This one is made with a contoured footbed enhanced for traction on wet surfaces. What more could you need?
If you're in need of a slipper that is practical, stylish, and sold at a good cost, this crisscross leather slide by Paul Stuart is made for you. It's a posh appearance is backed by ultra-comfy sole that's gripped at the bottom.
