Slip Into Spring

It's the first day of spring. Celebrate accordingly by ditching the socks and pulling on a pair of suede slip-ons. Go for a fresh take on timeless styles—from a cooler camp moc made in Maine to a ghost white pair of penny loafers. The key is to buy a quality made pair that will stand up through months of warm weather and sockless wear. In dusty hues or bold contrasting colors cut from a comfortable, breathable suede, what could be fresher with some washed jeans or the rest of your spring kit? So go ahead, let those ankles breathe, son.

The Camp Moc

Crafted from a taupe English suede, these lightweight kicks are hand-sewn in Maine using true moccasin construction with chestnut leather laces and antique brass eyelets.
