Anyway, to get the most out of slip-on footwear, choose loafers or moccasins in leather. They handle suits and jeans equally well. But, they don’t lend themselves to business or dressy occasions where lace-up shoes are preferred.
With their summer feel, canvas loafers look great with pinrolled jeans plus a polo or a collared shirt with rolled-up sleeves.
Boat shoes are equally as casual as canvas loafers. As the name implies, these shoes were originally used when boating. A non-slip, non-marking sole and water-resistant waxed leather make them perfect for this.
Chukka and Desert Boots
Desert boots are a type of chukka boots. Chukkas usually have two to three pairs of eyelets, a plain leather finish, and a crepe (white) rubber sole.Unlike Chukkas, desert boots always have suede uppers. They’re also unlined and often lighter.
Chelsea boots have a solid pedigree and date back to the Victorian era (mid-1800s). For these boots, plain leather is the only option. They can be higher than chukkas, and instead of laces, they have elastic side panels.
