The white summer shoe is a tricky thing to pull off. Like the bow tie it takes a certain sense of panache, not even taking into consideration the fear of getting them dirty. These rather Dandy White Suede Loafers from Alden have been making the internet rounds and the more I look at them, the more I want them. Exclusive to Need Supply Co, the loafers feature Goodyear welted construction (which means they can be resoled), with soft suede uppers with white trim detail, leather outsoles, tempered steel shank, and vegetable tanned leather insoles. While shoes like these would surely compliment your Summer seersucker suit, part of me wants to just rock them with a pair beat up jeans and an oxford.
Now I understand that most of us are not willing to spend $500 on a pair of Summer shoes regardless of how long they last. That’s why I have supplied a few additional white Summer Shoe options below.
