Among the ubiquitous flip-flops and boat shoes that tend to define summer footwear, the Leffot's Venetian Moccasins stand out as a model of chic minimalism. These aren't your father's driving moccasins; they're a lightweight, flexible shoe hand stitched by Maine-based shoemaker, Quoddy. Pair them with a summer suit, chino shorts, or your favorite jeans for a look that's effortlessly cool—and comfortable. There's no need for anything more complicated than these.
