    Eddie Bauer Rivet

    With durable canvas uppers and an unfussy look that pairs well with just about everything in your weekend bag, the Rivet ($70) impresses the old-fashioned way.

    Sanuk Randolf

    Think of the slim-fitting Randolf ($60) as a hipper, more streamlined version of the standard-issue Sanuk you might already own. Didn’t watch Miami Vice as a kid? It’s also available in a few solid colors.

    OluKai Nohea Mesh

    The Nohea’s ($95) quick-drying microfiber lining is like a chamois for your feet. And we love the flip-down heel that lets you slide into it on the fly.

    Sperry A/O 2-Eye Stripe

    A hand-sewn upper and real rawhide laces give the 2-Eye ($80) its classic look, but an EVA heel cup ups the comfort level.

    Reef Rover Low Premium

    This is the most comfortable Reef shoe ($80) we’ve worn. It also looks classy enough for a night out and provides more than enough grip for seaside exploring.

    SeaVees 05/65 Westwood

    The Westwood ($78) is better made and better looking than any of the other retro sneakers we tried. It’s also stable and durable enough for a few sets of mixed doubles.

    Freewaters Captain

    The number-one reason we love the Captain ($55): Its foot-bed was developed in cooperation with the sleeping-pad mavens over at Therm-a-Rest. It features little ridges that improve airflow and also feels great on your tootsies.

    Merrell Roust Frenzy

    Purpose-built for bicycle commuting, with a stiff midfoot for maximum pedaling efficiency, the faux-leather Roust Frenzy ($110) is so light, airy, and comfy, it quickly became our go-to summer roll-to-work shoe.
