Undefeated for Jack Purcell,
$55 available in-store
Classic and unassuming, the white low-top sneaker is the footwear equivalent to a T-shirt. Easygoing and as comfortable as it is versatile, they'll pair with nearly everything in your wardrobe, from shorts and chinos to beat up denim and crisp cotton suits. Which is why they're the ideal all-purpose footwear choice when the weather heats up. Of course, when it comes to choosing some simple kicks, you can't go wrong with those perennial favorites which haven't changed in decades. But there are also a handful of new models worth trying out like Sawa's African-made leather and suede styles or fresh collaborations from the West Coast shop Undefeated and designer Todd Snyder. Whichever you choose, feel free to kick them on and off all season long—sockless of course. It's as close as any man should get to going barefoot in the city.
