Our Favorite Men’s Casual Sandals
Here in Texas we can wear sandals for much of the year, and it’s not at all unusual to find several pairs in regular rotation: a pair for everyday wear, performance sandals for outdoor adventures, and a pair for more “formal” occasions. Men’s casual sandals are usually either slip-ons or flips and come in a wide variety of materials from water friendly EVA to beautifully sculpted leather.
As the days are warming up, have you pulled your sandals out of the closet for their first appearance in 2021? A beautiful sunny day will get us outdoors in our shorts, t-shirts and sandals every time! Are your sandals are looking a bit worse for wear? It may be time to start the year fresh with a new pair casual sandals. Here are a few of our favorite men’s sandals for spring and summer.
Birkenstock Lugano Oiled Leather Sandals
You may have been wearing your Birkenstocks throughout the winter as houseshoes or worn them with socks for those rare outings to the grocery store. If you love your Birkenstocks and are thinking about trying something new, check out the Lugano Oiled Leather Sandals. It’s a crossed-strap slip-on sandal with an adjustable buckle and the classic Birkenstock cork latex footbed. Combining good looks and comfort, this is a sandal to see you through all seasons.
Does water play a major role in your spring and summer plans? If so and you’re a Birkenstock fan, consider Birkenstock's Arizona Essentials EVA Sandals. These sandals are made for intimate contact with water. Made of lightweight flexible EVA, they’re modeled on the classic Arizona with an even more comfortable footbed, and they’re adjustable. If they get sandy or dirty, rinse them off, and they’re ready for action again.
OOFOS OOriginal Flip Sandals
How did Oofos get their name? When testing prototypes for their first sandals, time and time again the participants let out an “Oooooo” when experiencing the comfort of these foam sandals with a supportive molded footbed. Created as recovery sandals for athletes training on hard surfaces, today, they’re go-to, lightweight cushioned flips that can be worn every day or as a recovery sandal after workouts, runs, hikes or for people who work on their feet all day.
If you’re looking for sandals that have the good looks for formal occasions and are water friendly too, OluKai’s ‘Ohana Sandals may be just what you’re looking for. The thong and straps are made of water resistant materials, the EVA midsole delivers all day comfort, and the rubber outsole offers traction even on wet surfaces. The ‘Ohana’s aloha spirit will be right at home by the pool, on the boat or at summer gatherings.
Reef Newport Woven Sandals
Have you considered an upgrade to the basic foam flip? Reef’s Newport Woven Sandal looks sharp and outperforms that basic flip flop. The handsome woven strap is eco-friendly, made from recycled plastic bottles. The footbed is lightweight, has arch support, and a tough foam outsole. The Newport is not afraid of water. Take it to the beach or out in rainy weather. Its classic good looks will add a stylish touch to your summer shorts and shirts.
These are just a few of the men’s casual sandals you’ll find in our Whole Earth stores or online. Many are water friendly; all are comfortable and ready for spring and summer fun!
