  • My feet always get incredibly hot come summer. On the weekends I'm in flip-flops or Converse without socks. But I need something for work.

  • We hope you're not asking for office-appropriate mandals. Then again, the average June high in Phoenix is 104, so who are we to judge? Look for a pair by Geox. The company suffers from a combination of bad marketing and a confusing product, but they're worth a look. In short, these lightweight shoes have a comfortable, breathable rubber sole that (though patented technology) allows air to escape while blocking out water and debris. They've recently stepped up their design game and have a few suitable options, including this low-profile penny loafer. Or you could go for the Generic Man's classic oxford lace-ups, cut in an espresso canvas. Both, you'll be happy to hear, should be sported sockless.

Are tasseled loafers too old for say, a 29-year-old guy who actually likes wearing suits in the spring?

I just bought my first nice pair of lace-ups. How should I be caring for them?

I want to get a pair of wing tips I can wear often, but I can't seem to find any decent pair for less than $300.
