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.

OluKai Nohea Lace Twill ($95)


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.

Toms Paseos ($59) 


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.

Vans Rata Vulc ($47)


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.

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.

BucketFeet Earthtones ($68)


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.
