In general, among these 3 designs of Brogues, I highly advice you give a try for the Bruno MARC PRINCE Men’s Modern Classic Brogue. Why? Because I have no complaint for its quality. It brings me the feeling very nice when wearing. It is extremely stretchy so I completely don’t worry about the tightness when I first wear it after open the shoes box.

It is one should-have item we recommend. But I am not pleasant because of the quickly-go-wear heel of these shoes. Importantly, it is not a shoe really impressive in my eyes.

Lastly, the Bruno MARC PRINCE Men’s Oxford Modern Classic Brogue is really beautiful but it make my feet hurt if I wear it all day. Yet I don’t like the sophisticated design of this shoe much. Although I have to say that it is also the affordable shoes.

For Crocs Santa Cruz 2 Luxe Loafer, I was very happy because I can slip them on or off very simply and these bring me the feeling walking on the cloud. But I don’t like a little a pair of shoes with the fabric material too thin like this. That make me feel I am wearing the cheap-quality shoes.

Finally, Clarks Men’s Escalade Step Slip-on Loafer is very comfortable, I have to notice that. I wore it during the working day but there are no troubles. But the only drawback of this is its sole sounds loud in my each step. Meanwhile, I am rather unsatisfied when I must annoy others because of wearing these shoes.

Recommend:

I love Reebok Men’s Royal Trainer Mt Cross-trainer Shoe so much. Among these 3 trainers, I would recommend you to buy it because it hasn’t let me down yet till now. After a long time using, the shoes aren’t still stretchy really, they still nearly keep the entire their initial shapes.

Of course, the Adidas Performance Men’s Speed Trainer 2 Training Shoe is very comfortable when wearing too. I have had no pain with it. But in my eyes, its appearance is quite cheap. The canvas upper is very easy to get dirty and become dark then. Therefore, it is not the great one for me.

And, Nike Men’s Free Trainer 5.0 V6 Training Shoe is a trainer I think good on both look and quality which you should consider to buy. But for me, the breathable feature of its material performing through the air flows on it works not well. Therefore, it is easy and quick for me to feel hot in these shoes, even when my socks very thin. This is the reason why I don’t love it best.


4. Boat shoes

Being a variation from sneaker with low sole, boat shoe is also a brother of loafer when has tinged the style of it, typically as the short ribbon fastener. But the boat shoes have the color and style more various, the boat shoe has proven its appeal.

Also known as “deck shoes”, boat shoes are usually made of leather or canvas material. A type of color scheme most common is the upper on classic brown, while the base is the contrast white.

Rubber soles are the most characteristic part of these shoes, inspired from sneakers but lower. The most special feature in the shoe is likely to increase friction, reduce slip. This is a very important because it would restrict the accident while on the move frequently. Because of this main feature, the boat shoes were once used for work in ports and ships in the past. Sailors often used them.

In addition, the sides of the boat shoe pairs also have metal eyelets to help users feel cool and keep shoes dry quickly when wet. It’s easy to take off shoelaces when wet because the cord is made of leather instead of normal fabrics.

Cash Warren, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ewan McGregor are the famous people who usually wear boat shoes.

Here are the boat shoe designs for men in summer most prominent this year that I have bought:

1. Tommy Hilfiger Men’s Bowman Boat shoe

This shoe is a design with the sole made of rubber and the upper made of leather. I bought it because I want a pair of shoes which has the heel about 0.5-inches and low-top shaft from the arch. Besides, it is also because I like the detail rawhide lace 360-degree around the collar very classic of this shoe.

Pros:

  • Good price
  • Nice looking
  • Right size

Cons:

  • Easy to wear
  • The metal circles on 2 sides of the shoes easy to fall off.

Verdict:

This pair of boat shoes is not the best for daily wearing, long-distance walking. It is the optimal for wearing on a beach and a boat of course. In addition, the garden party is also suitable. It is also very easy to coordinate with the casual dresses.

2. Sperry Top-Sider Men’s A/O Boat Shoe

View here


It is a model I bought when I need one shoes for the 2.75-inches heel. Also as another boat shoes, this is made from rubber and leather and the toe has moccasin stitching. But its outstanding feature is laid at the eyelets anti-rust.

  • Easy to clean
  • Good looking
  • Comfortable
  • Well made
  • Good price

  • Too small cushion insole
  • Not good surface

This is the shoes I bought because of falling in love at the first sight. The noticeable feature of this shoes you have to know that is the Poron foam for the EVA insert. The sole made of synthetic material of this Timberland shoes is also to introduce for everyone.

Recommend:
Among 3 above boat shoes, I highly recommend the Timberland Men’s Classic Two-Eye Boat Shoe. As I have said, right at the first glance, I want to bring it home immediately. The leather upper is made very perfectly like shining up. And with the sole of this, you don’t need to worry about the slip. It is the best for sure!

For Tommy Hilfiger Men’s Bowman Boat shoe, I have had a shoe rather nice and I think you also should try them. All in all, it is a model comfortable when wearing. But the stitch of it makes me very disappointed, loose and worn. So, it is not a good purchase for me.

Talk about the Sperry Top-Sider Men’s A/O Boat Shoe, it is a shoes good enough for you to consider to buy. But in the role of a boat shoes, I see that this item doesn’t work well, because of the very bad wet traction of it.


5. Flip-flop

In the scenery and the air at a cool beach, with the sea moving games and swimming in the ocean, the flip-flops are items that anyone should have at least one double. Flip-flop was all too familiar to us. Rubber material of the flip-flop is the perfect choice for cruising. That is not mentioned their simple design which meets all of our activities. A flip-flop is cheap and always readily available.

To make flip-flop not look too monotonous or scruffy, choose ones with striking and youthful colors. Other fashion patterns decorated on this item will also help to add personality and originality.

In these 3 flip-flops, I have had listed above, I must tell you that I have never worn any sandal comfortable like NDB Men’s Classical Comfortable II Flip-Flop. In the wet days, I feel very assured because of efficient non-slip feature of this sandal. Meanwhile, I don’t need to spend many to get this purchase for it. So, I think it is the sandal you should to get one. Highly recommend!

Of course, it can say that Teva Men’s Mush II Flip-Flop is an item makes me pleased. I am appropriating the simple nature of this. But it is just good as a sandal used for a short term because its durability is only at fairly level. I will not recommend you to buy it.

Like the wet rainy day, the crazy heat also makes people “lazy” to dress up. But that does not mean you will be always in shorts and slippers when going out.
