If there’s something the womenfolk here hate, it’s the fact that their menfolk are extremely sloppy when it comes their footwear during weekends, what with stringy flip-flops or clunky sandals more suited for senior citizens. Yes, it’s an issue, and because there’s no way he’ll be slipping into loafers or sneakers no matter what you say, here’s an alternative that would work for everyone.
From Californian brand Malibu comes these woven sandals known as the Canyon, inspired by Mexican huaraches. Featuring a classic handwoven 5-strap design that also features vegan leather, it’s water-resistant and also offers good grip, these ones, with Italian knitwear giant Missoni are also on point when it comes to the colour combinations. Priced at USD149.05 a pair with an additional USD28 for shipping to our part of the world, it’s definitely more appealing than stringy flip-flops or clunky sandals.
And if he’s keen but wishes for a manlier colour palette, fret not. Mr Porter has two special pairs up for grabs now. Priced at around GBP117 a pair, they come in either full Navy or full Olive with white webbing for a look that’s most definitely street-style worthy but more importantly, won’t make you hang your head in shame whenever you bump into friends unexpectedly whilst you both are out and about.
