As we’re now in the heart of the summer for the UK, and holidays are firmly upon us, it’s always a plan to make suitable contingencies from head to foot. The latter of these can swiftly let you down, and an ageing pair of trainers will do you no favours between now and the Autumn (or ever).
Your ever-trusty StyleDen has a few suggestions to keep your outlook sunny, and ensure you put your best foot forward this Summer.
A new style for the winning Veras camp, with Spanish stylings via Wales, and a perfect look for balearic lounging, dandifying the UK cold or picnicking in the park. Suede, rubber sole and a killer tassel sets the Lorca off perfectly.
It may in part be nostalgia for youthful holidays which just ensures the inclusion of the iconic Adidas slides over the Nike Benassi. Regardless, it’s a perpetually strong look for beach or poolside stylings in an effortless manner.
Since 1911, it doesn’t get more classic than this. Extra strong, breathable cotton on a rubber sole, and instant style plus points in an Italian manner. These come in a range of amazing colours (far too many of which are in my house), and will never date or look anything less than amazing.
All Quoddy shoes are hand-made in Maine, and the quality on them is always absurd. The boat shoe allegedly comes in and out of fashion depending which editor you read, but a strong, classic boat shoe will never let you down.
The Roshe Run split opinion when Nike release it a couple of years ago, but it’s proved to be a hugely popular silhouette by the modern masters of the training shoe. I would have added more of the limited editions (such as the recent NY quickstrike pack) if you could still get them; this hyperfuse version is a variation on the original, but simple, comfortable and super fresh for summer.
