These are the 9 pairs of spring shoes every men need

Let’s get it out for spring shoes for men! Ok, you won’t hear that cheer in a stadium anytime soon but our team has enough enthusiasm to fill the student section.

Here are my top 5 reasons I love shopping for shoes. It applies to both men and women.

1) You don’t need to take your clothes off

Although I am not a never-nude, the thought of changing your clothes to try on clothes that you have to take off again and again, even if you decide to buy them, is a thousand times more painful than any other type of changing. *

*Ranked, best: changing into pajamas. Worst: Changing into spandex-y gym clothes (especially sports leggings, you guys know what I’m talking about).

2) A shoe should not make you feel too fat, ugly, short or tall

Meaning? If you aren’t ready to shop for spring and summer staples such as shorts, camp colla shirts or swim trunks yet, it might be worth starting your spring wardrobe overhaul from scratch.

You will feel confident in any weather and on any clothing shopping trip with a new pair of kicks.

Below is our team selection of the top shoes for spring 2022. Are you going to need them all? No. However, once you start a list, it is difficult to stop.


Retro sneakers, dad sneakers…whatever you like to call them, it is time to add a little spring to your step with a pair of funky, old-school-looking shoes.

There will be plenty of options as many shoe companies bring back throwback styles in 2022.

Shop our Picks:

  • New Balance 990v5, $185
  • New Balance 327, $100
  • Adidas Gazelle, $80


Birkenstocks are back in style, which means the 90s are here to stay. They look great with shorts and calf socks.

You can also wear them as a set with casual pants that are cuffed at the ankle.

Shop our Picks:

  • Birkenstock Arizona Essentials, $50
  • Birkenstock Suede Sandals, $135
  • Freedom Moses Slides, $45


A heavier boat shoe feels more like something an awkward teen protagonist would wear to the 80’s. Spring is a great time to sport a heavier pair of shoes. What man doesn’t want this?

Shop our Picks:

  • Sebago Seneca Boat Shoe, $150
  • Timberland Traditional 3-Eyelet Classic Timberland Lug, $150
  • Sperry Leeward Boot Shoe, $90


What’s the best thing about clogs? There are so many styles to choose from that it is almost impossible to pick the wrong one. These sandals can be worn the same way as the sandals. Just swap out the socksitch. Wear them with no socks and shorts. You can also wear them with pants and cozy socks.

Shop our Picks:

  • Birkenstock Boston Clog in Taupe Suede, $150
  • Crocs classic loafer, $50
  • Birkenstock clog, brown leather, $150


We love a good sneaker and a good clog on a guy, but sometimes it’s necessary to dress up. A penny loafer is modern, fresh, and cool right now. Ideal for spring.

Shop our Picks:

  • Florsheim Berkley Penny Loafer, $125
  • Paraboot Columbia Loafer, Black, $350
  • Fear of God Penny Loafer $695


It’s still cool this year, yep! As an adult, slipping into a pair pool slides feels a lot like dating someone who smells like your mother – it’s unsettling but strangely comforting.

Shop our Picks:

  • Polo Ralph Lauren, $70
  • Lacoste Croco 2.0 Slides, $50
  • Adidas Adilette Slides, $45


This men’s spring shoe recommendation is for those who don’t own a pair yet of suede desert boots. These boots will be even more useful as offices across the nation reopen and our definitions of business-appropriate attire change.

Shop our Picks:

  • Clarks Desert Boot in Sand Suede, $150
  • Common Projects Suede Chukka Boot, Off-White, $555


These are more of a “Get ready to summer!” type of pick, but it’s still our opinion. Espadrilles are fun, fresh and perfect for the warm weather. They are a great option to slip-on shoes if you want to dress up a little but still look professional.

Shop our Picks:

  • Todd Snyder, Guanabana Espadrille Natural, $138
  • Rivieras Classic Match Espadrille $60
  • Soludos Original Dali, $50
  • Soludos Beer, Short Smoking Slipper, $85


A high-top sneaker for men is a favorite when it comes to spring shoes. It’s fashion-y, but it feels like you are embracing a trend. You are the only one who can embrace this style, just like with the clogs. It’s a must to show them off, so be ready to roll your ankles with whatever you’re wearing.

Shop our Picks:

  • Converse Chuck 70 Vintage Canvas, $85
  • Vans Sk8-Hi 38, $60
  • Nike Blazer Mid ’77, Vintage, $100.
