The average guy might not need a whole wing of the house dedicated to his shoe wardrobe, but hey, even the manliest Spartan needs more than one pair of sandals. As a comfy alternative to those battle-worn wingtips, a pair of slip-on loafers will see action everywhere from the office arena to your coastal villa. Check out these popular styles for work and play.

Business casual can mean anything from dress boots to Oxfords. But as a safe bet for all occasions, a loafer is hard to beat. Leather uppers with a wedge sole are dressy enough for a board meeting yet casual enough for everyday wear.

Need to dress things up? A polished-leather loafer is suitably sharp with slacks and a sport coat, or you can just as comfortably take things down a notch with loafers, khakis, and a button-down.

When it’s time to break for the beachfront or lake house, a canvas loafer is your all-purpose leisure footwear. It’s the shoe that probably will cost the least but will see the most wear throughout any given week.
