Men's Shoes for a Beach Wedding
By definition beach weddings are very informal affairs, but don't overdo it. Even though the ceremony takes place in the sand, flip flops are never appropriate wedding attire. Choose styles that look good sockless and offer all day comfort.
Recommended Beach Wedding Shoes for Men
A beach wedding screams sockless and there is no finer sockless shoe than the Sea Island. The buttery soft suede from Charles F. Stead, the century-old English tannery is considered by many to be the finest in the world and they look great with a linen suit or chinos.
Suede and sockless, that is the beginning of a great look for a beach wedding. Add the Strandmok 2.0 to the mix and you are ready to celebrate in style. Wear with a linen suit, light cotton pants or chinos. It's the beach, a tie of course is optional.
For a classic suede shoe there is no finer choice than the Boone. With its brick-red Vibram sole, this shoe has the classic look of a Southern charmer or prep staple, but then takes it to the next level by topping that with high quality, super-soft suede in three great colors that look great with chinos or linen pants.
If you can't picture a double monk strap at a beach wedding you haven’t seen the Newberg. The casual leather and crepe sole means it looks great on sand and without socks. Wear it with a linen suit with a matching shirt and no tie or with dress chinos.
If your beach wedding leans to the formal, the Leiden Weave is the way to go. The classic brogueing from heel to toe is combined with an eye-catching woven leather upper and vamp that looks great with tapered trousers while also providing a lightweight, well-ventilated feel you need at any summer beach bash.
