Summer
Shoe Week

We've already discussed classics like Top-Siders and white bucks. This week, we're presenting the season's best shoes, all for under $100.

  • Gold Toe makes the best loafer socks for the illusion of going sockless. They're antimicrobial to avoid smells and feature a grippy tab on the heel to keep them in place. $18 for three, at Amazon

Suede
Wing Tips

Nothing says refined warm weather style better than a pair of suede wing tips. Relaxed yet sophisticated, they cover all bases and can get you in just about anywhere—whether you're wearing a trim khaki suit or some rumpled cut-off shorts. Look for a pair in earthy tones, like the newest style from Bass, the Barret long wing, which comes in sweet shades of chocolate or caramel. With a streamlined shape and a red brick role, it's a modern take on a timeless style. Available for pre-order now, the shoes will hit shelves in late June.

$79, by G.H. Bass

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
