Slip-on sneakers are the hallmark of warm-weather dressing. There’s never a bad time for a sneaker—we welcome kicks at all points of the year—but there is something especially great about slip-on shoes when it’s getting warmer, and again when it’s full-on hot. That’s because slip-on sneakers are a little less committal than a full sneaker. They literally slip on and off, making them just a slide away from stepping into the pool or heading onto the beach.
Slip-on sneakers are so good for warmer weather because they are worn best with shorts, whether that’s a fresh pair of chinos or your swim trunks out of water. Slip-on sneakers are best without a visible sock, too, opting instead for a non-slippy no-show. Not ready for shorts yet? Pair ’em with joggers.
