Best Man: The Best Shoes for Summer Weddings

Longer days, pub gardens and weekly BBQs, the summer season has finally arrived. And with it so have the summer shoes, with flip flops, sliders and sandals all making an appearance on the feet of well-dressed men. But what about when you need something a little smarter? Summer weddings are as inevitable as the BBQs and beach days and there, the flip flops just don’t cut it.
Whether you’re Best Man or Best Dressed Guest, here are the summer shoe styles to see you through the wedding season. 


With the PADRON, you can opt for smart with a twist. The lace up brogue style is a wedding favourite and finishes smart looks effortlessly while the contrast panels keep things fresh. Opt for the tan for an understated shoe or try the jazzier black and white colour block style. 

Be brave in the summer sun and make a statement with the PLAYA colour block penny loafers. The leather finish keeps things classy while the contrast panels are a sure-fire way to spice up any suit. If the sun is out, go sockless in the slip-on loafer style. Opt for the brown to complement navy suits, or up your game with the eye-catching black and white. 


For something classic, you can’t beat the POTTER. This timeless oxford shoe will be your go-to for any special occasion. With a smart leather finish and subtle punch hole detailing, the classic style takes you from work to wedding and smartens up the scruffiest of suits. Pair with classic looks for an effortless finish, think three-piece suits and best man attire.
For more laid-back weddings, have fun with footwear styles and opt for something a little jazzier like the POLPERRO. The style may be laid-back loafer, but they still pack a smart punch with a linen suede finish and tassel detail. The added benefit? You can go sockless on hot days. Ideal for taking you from the ceremony to the after-party, these slip ons were made for chinos or dressing down suits. 


Just because it’s a wedding, doesn’t mean footwear needs to be black. Add a pop of summer colour to your smart look with the PENRYN. Be bold with navy or go neutral with muted taupe. The linen suede finish keeps things smart and the oxford style lacing is a formal favourite.
