These are the only shoes guys need for summer

The warm weather means its time to switch up your footwear rotation.

No more high-tops and boots. Instead, low-profile loafer and moc toes dominate the scene. Ranging from the super-sporty summer shoe to the very conservative wingtip, here are six of the most popular shoe styles a guy can throw on his feet in the warmer months.

These six are all you need to take you through to September. Many of these styles require the sockless look, but that’s easily achieved (without the smell) if you wear loafer socks.
