Whatever the occasion, there's a perfect pair of shoes to squeeze your toes into. Here are the FHM Fashion Team's top picks for summer:
HARRY-W, £195, RUSSELLANDBROMLEY.CO.UK
WHY: Woven derbies are bang on trend this summer and bang tidy too, making them the ideal office shoe.
EXPERT INTEL: Ruseell & Bromley is a British institution with 120 years' experience going into every shoe they make.
ZX FLUX TRAINERS, £67, ADIDAS.CO.UK
WHY: Because these kicks are the shit, the bee's knees and the cat's pyamas; your life won't be complete without them.
EXPERT INTEL: The German brand has hit the nail on the head here with forward-thinking design: most definitely a future classic.
ORUGA, £80, CAMPER.COM
WHY: Traipsing from one cultural landmark (read: bar) to the next means swollen, pungent feet. Don't be 'that guy' with the stinky trainers...
EXPERT INTEL: Camper has been doing its thing since the '70s. It's now set for a comeback with some ace new designs in tow.
O 2-EYE OMBRE, £90, SPERRYTOPSIDER.CO.UK
WHY: No matter what year, deck shoes are always a summer staple. They look mint with everything, from chinos to swimmers.
EXPERT INTEL: Sperry Top-Sider is the original maker of boat shoes and the herringbone sole print was based on the paw of Paul Sperry's little pup.
PRINTZ FLIP FLOPS, £20, GANDYSFLIPFLOPS.COM
WHY: Flip flops are a tad impractical for the beach and their irritating squeak is annoying in the streets. To the pool it is, then.
EXPERT INTEL: 10% of all profits made from the sale of Gandys go to funding children's homes in India and Sri Lanka.
SABADA, £34.95, FLOSSYSHOES.COM
WHY: These beats are a step up from your standard flimsy espadrille. They are, in fact, a state-of-the-art espadrille and Mediterranean boat shoe hybrid.
EXPERT INTEL: The rubber sole smells of strawberry-flavoured bubble gum, which is much better than your usual stilton stench.
WOVEN, £270, PAULSMITH.CO.UK
WHY: We're not saying that you should steal the limelight from a bride on her big day, but...it'll be hard not to with these woven bad boys.
EXPERT INTEL: Matching suits with smart shoes can be a right boring affair. Switch up from your usual look and pair these lace-ups with a cool linen suit.
2750, £45, SUPERGA.CO.UK
WHY: It's not an overstatement to say that everyone needs some top-quality plimsolls to slip on before heading out to a beer garden.
EXPERT INTEL: The cotton uppers will naturally keep your feet cool and can be machine-washed when you spill you pint on 'em. Easy work.
SLIDES, £15, ADIDAS AT JDSPORTS.CO.UK
WHY: Gone ar the days when you went to a festival in your scruffs, but that doesn't mean you can't still be comfortable.
EXPERT INTEL: Level up with a pair of - and trust us here - sports socks. Yep, this sounds really weird but it's a definite winner for summer 2014.
PENNY LOAFERS, £105, SWIMS.COM
WHY: Well, why not? There's nothing more money than having a pair of shoes for driving.
EXPERT INTEL: Norwegian brand Swims is hot property at the moment as it continues to set the benchmar for stylish yet functional shoes.
