Who Needs Laces?

10 Great Slip-On Shoes for Summer


Slip-ons are casual yet sophisticated, suitable for an exclusive dinner party or a spur-of-the-moment beach run. They’re cool without being precious. For this guide, we included variations on the slip-on sneaker and the espadrille, and we left out other laceless shoes like loafers and monk straps — they’re simply not ideal for pool parties and touch football.
