The subject of men’s sandals has been greatly debated. When can a man bare his toes in peace? Should he? We may never fully agree. But there is hope, because sandals aren’t your only option when it comes to warm weather footwear. Espadrilles are the easy, no-fail option. They’re lightweight enough to bust out even in the thickest heat, and the super casual silhouette looks right around the beach and, in a pinch, on the sidewalk. Bring them to the pool, to the tiki bar, and on every mini vacation. Here are some of the best ones to buy right now.
Pablo Canvas Espadrilles
Castañer is a great go-to for a variety of espadrille colors. Add some variety to your footwear collection with a teal pair.
Dolce & Gabbana
Dancing Man Print Espadrilles
The casual nature of this shoe means you can have some fun with it. Dolce & Gabbana’s dancing man print is an understated way to do it.
Or opt for a bold color, like this roguish red.
Soludos is king of beach shoes. Bring these on every trip.
Kenzo’s signature eye print is a whimsical option. Plus, it pairs well with tiki drinks.
When you’re near the beach (but not physically on it), a cool leather version looks just right.
Cario Loubi Canvas Espadrille
For any and all luxury beachfront activities.
Hamptons Lace-Up Suede Espadrille
The lace-up upper on Manebí’s espadrille is a subtle change-up that’s just as easy to wear.
Mulo’s take on the shoe uses a rubber sole instead of the classic rope or braid, making them slightly less casual. Still save ’em for the weekend, though.
Embroidered Canvas Espadrilles
A no-fuss pick for the resort-ready rocker type.
