Best Slip On Shoes For Men

10 Best Slip-On Shoes For Men

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, STYLE By

The term “slip-on shoes” might draw up negative connotations among even the most novice of the style-obsessed. Rest assured, the new breed of men’s slip-on shoes are stylish, well-designed and supremely comfortable — a far cry from the clunky versions worn in your youth (or seen on the feet of so many weary travelers).

No sir, men’s slip-on shoes come from all manner of brands and designers, in all sorts of silhouettes and materials — some more suited for the beach, some more suited for wearing with, well, a khaki suit at a casual summer happy hour. It’s tough to narrow down any category to just 10, but we think we’ve done a more than suitable job narrowing down our list to just 10 of the best slip-on shoes for men. See for yourself below.

SeaVees 05/66 Hawthorne Slip On Standard

SeaVees 05/66 Hawthorne Slip On Standard

Perhaps the gold standard among casual slip-on shoes, with the heritage to boot. SeaVees has always channeled a uniquely California brand of cool that’s nearly unmatched when it comes to easygoing, yet versatile, footwear picks (especially of the variety meant to be worn near a beach or on the boardwalk). As the brand says, they’re made to evoke a specific breed of mid-’60’s cool, and we think they certainly fit the bill. Roll up your chinos and throw on a short-sleeve chambray shirt with this particular pair. – Shop Now

Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski Slip-On

Nike SB Zoom Stefan Janoski Slip-On

Slip-on shoes perhaps most readily evoke the type of functionality that might work best with skateboarding — perhaps it’s the laidback look or the slightly rebellious silhouette (no laces in sight). Whatever the case might be, the Stefan Janoski Slip-On functions extraordinarily well as a modern-day skating slip-on, from the Nike Zoom Air capability in the sock liner to the low profile, grippy exterior and low-key color. Oh, and they’re only $75 — leaving you enough cash left over to stock up on skating gear (or just gear to wear to your next backyard BBQ). – Shop Now

Rivieras Classic Slip-On

Rivieras Classic Slip-On

Sometimes, the best slip-on shoes for men take design cues from a few different eras, and that’s where you end up with a seriously cool, stylish and comfortable shoe like the Classic Slip-On from Rivieras. Available via the fine purveyors at Huckberry, they’re exactly the type of shoe you’d expect the rugged-meets-modern retailer to expect, featuring a canvas exterior, a natural gum rubber outsole and cotton piping, plus a soft terrycloth lining. These are the shoes to wear with a vintage camp shirt and tailored canvas shorts this summer. – Shop Now

Converse Jack Purcell Low Profile Low Top

Converse Jack Purcell Low Profile Low Top

You know Converse, surely, for instantly recognizable low-top sneakers (specifically the durable and easy-to-wear Jack Purcell in a classic lace-up iteration). It could be unexpected, then, that the same design approach would apply to an equally easy-to-wear slip-on, yet that’s the case here — and we think you’ll be quite pleased with the results, to say the least. The canvas upper is tough and quite able to pair with everything from light wash jeans and a white tee to slim chinos and a navy polo. That’s all you can ask for in terms of a great slip-on shoe. – Shop Now

Vans Classic Slip-On

Vans Classic Slip-On

For just $50 right now, you can buy into the classic versatility, quality and timeless style that comes from a certifiably cool brand like VANS. They’ve experienced a resurgence in recent years as more consumers rediscover the irreverent sense of wearable style that a pair of VANS can provide, and that’s as true with a canvas slip-on in a cool shade of grey as it is with the classic Checkerboard pattern slip-ons. We think these look best with khaki shorts and a tough navy henley. – Shop Now

GREATS The Wooster

Greats The Wooster

Looking for a significant upgrade over your average pair of sneakers? In every respect, GREATS can deliver — that’s especially true when it comes to your slip-on sneakers. The Wooster truly is one-of-a-kind, the rare pair of slip-on sneakers that wouldn’t look out of place with a lightweight khaki suit and a chambray shirt. From Italian construction to the Margom soles to the full-grain leather used throughout, you’re getting a handsome pair of slip-ons at a nice price (just under $170). – Shop Now

SeaVees Huntington Middie

SeaVees Huntington Middie

Lest you think our list of the best men’s slip-on shoes applies only to low-top sneakers, well, the SeaVees Huntington Middie is here to change your mind. Absolutely as laidback and easygoing as counterparts that are cut with a low profile, the Huntington Middie comes in a versatile range of colors and features soft suede. We’d pair this particular iteration with light grey chinos, a navy short-sleeve shirt and your best aviator sunglasses for a summer bar crawl and well beyond. – Shop Now

PF Flyers Center Lo Slip On

PF Flyers Center Lo Slip On

P.F. Flyers is yet another brand normally known for its tough high-top and low-top lace-up sneakers, yet their considerable attention to detail and design heritage shines through with the Center Lo Slip-On. They’re simply the latest pair of slip-on sneakers for your consideration this season, crafted with a treaded outsole and a durable 10oz. Canvas upper for plenty of wear this summer … and next summer, and heck, the summer after that. Wear the black canvas pair with light wash jeans and a black T-shirt for a bit of casual style at your next outdoor concert. – Shop Now

The same brand that makes your favorite white leather sneakers makes an absurdly beautiful pair of suede slip-ons to wear with a khaki summer suit and a printed shirt.
