Lightweight and breathable, nothing puts more spring in your step than a pair of suede shoes.


The name suede comes from the French term "gants de Suede", which literally means "gloves of Sweden."

How to Wear It

Whether you go with a classic brown derby or bolder tones on a pair of sneakers, suede is an essential that you can pretty much start wearing as soon as it's over 50 degrees.

What to Look for

Quality stitching, a soft lining for going sockless and a comfortable and flexible sole that doesn't require much breaking in.
