How to wear navy shoes this summer

August 24, 2020 2 min read

Looking for a summer shoe that goes with everything? Enter our new favorite color: navy. A sophisticated alternative to traditional black and brown, navy shoes are the summer standby you never knew you needed. Here are three of the best ways to wear them.

Below deck

The nautical look is always a summer trend, but this year it’s a little more rugged than usual. Style leaders are taking their cue from traditional fishermen and stepping out in chore jackets and knitted beanie hats – think clothes for catching lobsters rather than lounging about on a yacht. Get the look with Dockers®’ boat shoe/sneaker hybrid, packed with innovative features including water guard – so you won’t need to worry about getting splashed on deck.

The new smart casual

With many Americans still working remotely, it’s going to be a long time before suits and dress shoes are back on the agenda. So now is the time to master business casual. Khakis are just right for low-key catch ups with coworkers, and they pair perfectly with navy oxford shoes. Fresher than classic tan, casual navy lace-ups look just right with a khaki or beige chino.

Pairing navy sneaks with dark wash denim will create a sleek, streamlined look for work and weekends without being too matchy-matchy about it. Our pick?
