The Vacation Edit
Posted by Jones Bootmaker on
We’re dreaming of delightfully lazy days where our only responsibility is to layer up on sunscreen. Yes, it’s getaway season and we have two things on our vacation agendas: switching off and styling up our destination dressing.
Looking to pack a sartorial punch in your vacation suitcase this year? From the moment the wheels touch down to take off again on the flight back home, the secret to stress-free, stylish dressing is to keep it simple.
Showcasing footwear that will look just as chic strolling along the beach front as it will exploring the old town markets – discover the three vacation shoes and sandals that are essential for your next escape.
Let the fun begin as soon as you step into the departure lounge in a pair of comfortable kicks. Ideal for travelling long distance and for breezing through security checks, style-conscious sneakers will set the right, relaxed tone for the foreseeable.
Platform sneakers add playful form to comfort-led looks.
Our Alani sneakers leave little to be desired. Sleek yet exaggerated in form, Alani achieves perfect balance, both visually and where practicality is concerned.
Crafted with an air-cushioned insole and bouncy outsole to help you stay one step ahead of the heat, team this statement-making silhouette with tailored shorts and airy dresses – oh, and perhaps a celebratory glass of champagne at the airport (you’re on vacation, after all).
Nothing serves athleisure like a pair of running-inspired sneakers.
Starting life in Portugal, Skipton are no stranger to sunnier climes. Sporting a spongy outsole and sleek heel guard, this suede and synthetic hybrid dishes out comfort and style in spades.
Stay on top of the heat from the get-go courtesy of Skipton’s soft recycled Pigo lining and Dry Alive insole. To hit the ground running, wear to the airport and for sight-seeing excursions.
Fruits de mer
The definitive trend taking over summer 2022, a fisherman sandal is a must-have. Steeped in maritime heritage this rounded closed-toe design (reminiscent of a traditional lobster trap) boasts all-encompassing support. Perfect for surveying the marina and sampling the local cuisine.
Our Adelynn sandals take their cue from the classic fishermen silhouette.
This closed toe sandal is handcrafted in Spain using soft leather that is kind to bare skin, fastened by a simple square buckle.
Amplified by a platform outsole – braided jute of course – Adelynn excels when paired with billowing dresses inclined to catch the breeze.
As far as men’s leather sandals go, Weymouth set the bar high.
Finding their appeal in an understated form executed by master craftsman in the heartland of Spain, Weymouth proves that it’s all in the (minimalist) detail.
When wearing Weymouth, don’t forget to sign-off your look with a pair of classic shades.
When the sun is about to set on the boulevard, a touch of glamour is in order. Like the sun kissed nostalgia of a sepia photograph, choose a style that simply transcends time. For her its elegant heels, for him laidback loafers – destined for bar hopping down at the old town square.
Summer heels set the tone for an evening soiree.
Slip on the Bianka heeled mules for a quick fix of vacation glamour. Style notes include a diamond-quilted leather upper, a mid-height flared heel, and a soft square toe for just a touch of drama.
We picture Bianka in the French Riviera, Palm Beach, or by the Venice canals. Style with wide-leg trousers or a belted dress to harness Bianka’s timelessness.
Few styles carry smart-casual credentials like men’s loafers do.
For the ultimate relaxed vacation style, the Ramsey suede espadrille loafers are hard to beat. Crafted from supple suede and complete with a woven jute sole, Ramsey feature a collapsible heel, transforming these slip-on loafers into mules in an instant should the heat require.
For evening attire, pair Ramsey with crease-less chinos and a button-down shirt.
