Five Slip-On Styles You Need To Own

These comfortable slip-on’s are perfect nearly all year round – and with various high-end brands jumping on the bandwagon (or skateboard) The Manual wanted to bring some great styles to your attention. Just in case you’re behind the curb (get it?).

Here are some great options that will help you glide through the rest of your summer.

VANS – sort of the be all end all when it comes to skate shoes. Everyone making slip-ons right now seem to be influenced by them one way or another. Here are some options from the brand that started it all.

So good, we couldn’t choose just one – VANS Classic Slip-On has been updated with soft Torino leather and suede in both Dark Slate Blue and Winetasting red. The perfect end-of-summer / almost-Fall transition sneaker that you can wear with shorts or black jeans. Buy them both here. 

American Eagle Outfitters – Embrace your wild side with these AEO Chevron Printed slip-ons. They’re made from soft cotton canvas and they wont break your piggy bank. Buy them through American Eagle Outfitters.

TOMS – An earthier option – these TOMS Freetown Sabados are what happens when a skater and a hippie have a child. Made with a solid canvas toe front and a perforated mid-to-heel. A bold approach to the brands most relaxed style. Also great for those unbearable August heat waves. Buy a pair here.

Calvin Klein – Langston Slip On Shoe is a basic, no fuss option. It’s also the featured item in their advertising campaign. It’s also on sale – so think fast. Purchase here.

J.D. Fisk makes a more futuristic looking slip on. Made in either black or brown leather with a translucent rubber sole. A quirky twist on an already quirky kick. Purchase through MyHabit.
