When you assemble an outfit to brave the July heat, follow one simple adage — less is more. Carry that same concept to your footwear, and you’ll end up in shoes without laces, the epitome of quick and effortless. “I really love a slip-on shoe — and I think a lot of it just has to do with ease,” says stylist Jeanne Yang, who dresses actors as they promote films like Jurassic World and Magic Mike XXL.

Yang explains that summer is the peak moment to go without laces: “You’re usually running out to do things outdoors. Since you’re jumping into trunks or shorts quickly, slip-ons are a much cooler option.” Go soak up the summer while it’s in full bloom, without kneeling down on the scorching concrete to fuss with cumbersome high-tops. These six shoes, sans laces, are for every man, for every occasion, from the first big wave of the day until the very last beer in the evening.
