Top 4 Men’s Shoes For Spring (and Summer)


– Hey you, I’m Ashley Weston, I’m a celebrity menswear stylist. So today I wanna go over my
top four shoes for spring. So, these are shoes
that you’re probably not gonna wear you know, during
late fall and through the winter, but it’s finally
time to break them out and really let them shine. So number four on my
list is a nice pair of suede double monk strap shoes. I actually included these
in my list, it’s the top ten essential spring items
every guy should own, and so if you haven’t seen that video, check it out, I’ll link it in
the video description below. Now, I really love a good
suede monk strap, in either a nice dark chocolate, like
I’ve got here, or you can even go with a nice gray or navy
pair, but suede double monks really just add a very
stylish touch to any outfit. And the great thing is, is
that they can be worn with not only a suit, but
also with your chinos or dark wash jeans. Just remember though, before
you wear them for the first time, you’ll want to Scotchgard
them to protect the suede, but other than that, enjoy
this item, it’ll take you not only through spring, but
through the summer months and early fall as well. So number three on the
list is a nice pair of leather penny loafers. So I absolutely love penny
loafers, especially when they’re worn with no show
socks, so a little bit of ankle is exposed, so to
achieve that, just cuff your jeans or your chinos, or even
just get your pants hemmed so that there’s no break
or you can even shorten it a little bit further than
that, so that you get that little bit of ankle exposed. Penny loafers really add a
very stylish and luxurious touch to any outfit. Now, I’ve got these ones
here actually, that are my fiancé Dorian’s, and they’re
by Ferragamo, which I love, even though they are on the
pricier side, he’s actually had these now for like, two
or three years and they’ve held up so well. Just get yourself a really
great pair of penny loafers and if you treat them well,
they’re gonna last you years and years to come. And number two on the list,
is a suede driving shoe. These are super comfortable,
they’re actually the perfect middle ground between
a sneaker and a penny loafer. So they’re gonna be just as
comfortable as a sneaker, but they’re gonna be a
little bit more dressed up, closer to a penny loafer. Now I wouldn’t recommend
wearing these with a suit, but you can wear them
with you know, shorts, dark washed jeans, chinos,
also some nice linen trousers, or lightweight,
you know, wool trousers would look really great with
these suede driving shoes. And the number one shoe for
spring that you should own, you’re already looking at it,
but it’s a nice navy, or gray, sneaker, low top sneaker
specifically that laces up. Now you can go with navy, like
I have here, or gray again. It can be leather or
canvas, it doesn’t matter, whichever is your preference. But I really love a nice
colored sneaker like this for spring as well as for summer. Navy and gray is actually,
think of it like a neutral color, so you can wear it
with your existing wardrobe and it’s gonna look awesome
and you don’t have to really think about anything, also
they don’t get as dirty as white sneakers, which white
sneakers are still good but, you know, that’s an added benefit. Just remember though, if
the white is getting dirty, you just want to wipe it
down, so that it doesn’t look all crappy and whatnot,
that just looks sloppy. Footwear is just a really
great way to insert new life into your existing wardrobe. Be sure to checkout my
article where I’ll have all of my favorite shoes
that will fit any budget, I’ll link that in the
video description below. If you like this video,
remember, give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel

  • Hello. Which one should I choose. A Dark brown suede penny loafer or driving loafer? Which will be more versatile. I already own tan Derbys and brown monstraps. I also own a dark brown suede chucka boot

  • if you had to choose one sneaker to buy what would you go for?

  • Thoughts on tassel loafers?

  • From personal experience, some of the brands shown here and in the article are better than others. For example, C&J shoes are an excellent buy even at full retail. They are all handmade in England and will literally last you decades: just ask my grandfather! For similar money, you have a brand like Tod's, which unfortunately in my experience is simply not worth the money. Yes they are very nice and very, very comfortable but the rubber studs in the sole wear down very quickly and the leather along the bottom and sides also wears down unsettlingly fast. They are very nice but VERY delicate and quite frankly can only be worn for short trips or occasions. If you really want them, buy them: I won't tell you how to spend your money because it's none of my business. It's just something to keep in mind if you're deciding between a nice pair of drivers OR monks or loafers.

  • Hi Ashely,
    Firstly, I want to say that i've unsubscribed from all of the other style, grooming channels and i'm only subscribed to you because you don't say bs crap and you get straight to the point, hopefully you will stick to just telling us the essentials and not other unnecessary crap like other youtubers. Also, I cannot wait for your grooming series, I hope its detailed and covers absolutely everything, shaving, skincare, dental hygiene etc. And I hope its out soon. Keep up the good work.

  • Would you say that it's too late to buy Desert Boots?

  • Ashley your videos are amazing, can you please do a video on how to pair the right jeans with the right tshirts and shirts. Please, it's a humble request

  • Why not black sneakers though?

  • Hey Ashley. Could you do a video on formal but cool office wear?

  • would you do video on vest?

  • The first shoe is heinous.

  • Not Feelin' the monkstraps. hard pass. look like a leprechaun.

  • what colour penny loafers should you buy for first pair? dark brown or black?

  • What about brown double monks?

  • why the hell is she describing everything as nice. For fucks sake aren't there other adjectives in English language?

  • Sorry they are all ugly

  • White sneakers/trainers.

  • Bruh wut is dis Lmao y'all good whit a pair of chuck taylors boys thats all or some nike/adidas sh*t lol.

  • Can I wear Chelsea boots in Spring and perhaps in Sommer too ?

  • Good evening ashley you are the best presenter of style I am of the Algeria north of africa thank you.

  • What about wearing suede shoes in places like NY like you previously stated?

  • what brand are those penny loafers

  • Boots?.. Boots are year round no?

  • I'm honestly gonna wear my boots all year round! I love them too much not to.

  • Double monks!! 👍🏻👍🏻. Great video Ashley

  • Is there any place in your style lexicon for a leather plain toe slip on instead of a true driving moc?

  • Good selection, but I don't think navy sneakers are all that versatile since they tend to "over match" with jeans and navy/blue chinos. I'd also add some suede chukka boots to the list.

  • haters guna hate
    am wearing sneakers every day

  • Why is it always double and never single monk straps?
    Other then that, as usually, awesome video 😊

  • Okay, you lost me. I'm not a hipster. I'm not wearing skinny jeans. Penny loafers sans socks is gross.

  • I also like white leather sneakers like common projects or Adidas Stan smiths

  • What brand were those monk straps? Great color and design!

  • Ashley I love your work and for a rough old head like me you inject a lot of great ideas. I love a nice pair of shoes but I'm never wearing any of these.

  • Should somebody buy these shoes after getting the footwear essentials? Not sure what to pick out for one all-around shoes as a high school student heading into college. Currently I'm leaning towards a pair of all white Stan Smiths but I'm not sure.

  • I think the navy shoes is a must, great colour for men and goes with either jeans, chinos, or even suit trousers! Also gives you the modern look unlike the other shoes in my opinion. 😎

  • Ashley, I love the channel. I'm 50 and I like the classic style that you present. It is timeless! I feel almost all the advice you give is appropriate for all ages. Thanks, Tommy

  • Hi Ashley! I love your channel. Congrats to you and Dorian. I'd love to see your take on gym style. That's where I see the biggest number of douchebags united. Thank you!

  • thanks again queen weston

  • Ashley what are your thoughts on Margiela Gats?

  • I just bought Common Projects in blush, did make a mistake?

  • Good video Ashley!

  • You should make a lookbook video using your fiancé !

  • I have a skate shoe that looks similar to that kind of sneaker. It just has a brown area going up some of the back of the shoe like reinforcement. It's a DC skate shoe and the more minimal kind so it works easily as a regular sneaker.

  • they all look like my grandpas shoes

  • Haha! My #1 for summer just arrived a grey suede sneaker. See how I did that? 😉

  • Can you make a video on all about how to protect and clean leather shoes?

  • I'm surprised by the choice of suede, given the relatively high upkeep but I may have to invest in a pair. I just scored a decent pair of G.H. Bass penny loafers which need some TLC but I'll rock them afterwards. Also, your hair was on point.

  • I'm a college student wondering what to wear that would attract women that is cheap and not dressing up clothing

  • Hi Ashley, amazing video. I was curious if a mid-brown shoe and a darker brown (more like chocolate) are interchangeable within styles. You seem to always suggest a deep brown shoe. I am looking at Magnanni boots which come both colors to match with dark denim. Please help!

  • Hey Ashley, is there any guide for women that you can recommend a friend of mine?

  • Ashley Weston you are a doll

  • Damn girl. I know i am here for the great tips that you give on mens fashion, but i cannot help but being distracted by your beauty. You look absolutely stunning.

  • Ashley! Thank you for all of your grooming and styling tips.

  • make a video on teens style

  • monk straps, sneakers, loafers and then driving shoes in my opinion.
    your ranking puts the dressier shoes behind the casual ones. a more balanced approach is what i'd go for!

  • what about suede semi brogues in camel?

  • What about a suede penny loafer? Or do you generally suggest leather over suede for penny loafers? thanks for any advice.

  • Why is it majority of the time you wear BLACK and not other colors.

  • Monkstraps were in fashion 3 years ago… I'll pass on that.

  • the shoe is as wide as your shoulders…

  • How to get rid of dandruff? Thanks

  • these are all ugly shoes.

  • I dont like penny loafers

  • boat shoes?

  • Yo Ashley, how about Jordan 3 True Blues?

  • Hey Ashley – Have you tried Floafers out yet?

  • Hi Ashley what brand is the navy sneaker ?

  • Funny I already own a pair of those common projects in black and white. Got a pair of slipins as well or boatshoes look a like. But thinking espadrilles for this summer in few colors. Very affordable but I don’t think they’ll last a summer if you’re a super walker lol

  • Link of those navy sneakers she was holding ?

  • Any colors for those driving mocs you'd recommend, Ashley?

  • Good list, I also like Puma Clyde canvas (diamond collection) sneakers (lightweight, stylish, and breathable) and Ralph Lauren Series 100 tennis shoes (more comfortable and classy than any Adidas or Nike) for summer and fall, besides a nice pair of Sperry Top Siders. On the same note, it will be nice if you made a video on how to tight laces for boat shoes, including the different cool and stylish maritime knots like double barrel, etc.

  • Liking those grey suedes <3

  • Your taste is more feminine than what men are looking at in my opinion. Just my opinion. Not feeling it.

  • Great video! You could do a brand new version of this for 2018/2019, it would be great.

  • This video is professionaly lighted it's light quality is soft thus makes your face look beautiful. This is the kind of lighting we wanna see in all videos you guys make.
