Summer is supposed to be the most relaxed of the seasons. The season of barbecues, golf, days at the beach and extreme hatred of the day job. It’s supposed to be fun and easy. But it also happens to be extremely hot, so you have to dress accordingly. Throwing on some shorts and a t-shirt is easy enough, but what about the summer shoes? Loafers are out. Your gym shoes haven’t been washed since, well, ever. Unless you plan on swabbing the deck, boat shoes are also out. Sandals? We’re not even going to answer that one. You need something that’s like a quality gym shoe (for comfort) but is devoid of laces (for ease of use) and easily de-sanded. The Vans Bali Slip-on Sneakers are those shoes. With woven uppers, a deckshoe toe and elastic goring at the sides, these sneakers have common DNA with all the popular summer footwear options. they’re a breathe of fresh air for your feet.
