Step into summer with the season’s best shoes

If you treat your feet well, they'll repay the favor. These five canvas options are as good a place as any to start this summer.

The Nohea’s cotton-twill upper folds along the heel seam to double as a slip-on. If that’s not summery enough, the removable footbed is imprinted to mimic the feeling of feet in sand. olukai.com

The rubber cup sole and higher sidewalls on Toms’ canvas lace-ups make for a much more durable and supportive alternative to its slip-on classics. toms.com

The vulcanized-rubber sole and inventive colors add a subtle skater sensibility to an otherwise understated two-lace. The gridded footbed is extra cushy and washing-machine safe after a day of cruising boardwalks. vans.com

Sanuk Casa Barco ($60)

Less sweaty than a leather boat shoe, the Casa Barco is a wear-all-day, goes-with-everything lace-up. Bonus points for the comfy EVA footbed and vegan rubber. sanuk.com

Each pair of Bucket-Feet low-tops is a collaboration with an independent artist. The olive and tan pixelation of this one emulates the laid-back vibe of the artist’s hometown, Burlington, Vermont. bucketfeet.com
