Believe it or not, suede desert boots are a perfect summer shoe alternative. This season, our favorite is the Oscar, from the British brand Grenson. These are perfect for going the distance; the crepe soles add a cushion to your step, and they're unlined so your feet stay nice and cool. Dress them up with a suit for the office or pair them with colorful chinos or shorts for a sharp look that doesn't sacrifice on comfort.
