Hands On: The SWIMS George Summer Lace Loafer

The heat wave is in full swing, the water is a good 67º degrees and soon enough, Lake Michigan will be packed from end-to-end with 60 ft. yachts. So if you plan on navigating through the water anytime soon, or are heading out to a boat party, the last thing you want to do is step off the dock and onto the deck in a pair of sneakers — trust us, it’s not a very good look.

Boat shoes might be the more obvious route, but who are we fooling, anytime you head out to the beach front during the summer season that will likely be what every other guy is wearing. Having an option that will let you stand out from the crowd should always be at the top of the priority list, and one way to stay stylish and upgrade your summer footwear, is to get your hands on the SWIMS George Summer Lace Loafer. A far cry from the traditional penny loafer, the George Loafer is about as comfortable as a Eames chair and comes in a variety of colors.

Extremely lightweight, it features 3 dimensional air-mesh construction on the upper, while a soft perforated liner allows for maximum breathability, and that’s just the start. A summer shoe needs to be well crafted in order to reduce moisture during the hottest days of summer, which is why the George Loafer sports a molded TPU Structure. This means there’s no need for internal reinforcements and it provides outstanding durability.

This particular colorway (Beige/Orange) will pair well with cargo shorts, dark washed denim or a slim fit pair of chino’s. And, while the air mesh lets in cool air to fight off warm temperatures, a premium suede collar gives the silhouette the luxury look and feel of a high-end dress shoe. Just like test driving a new car to find out how it handles the bumps on the road, taking a stroll in the George Loafer is like walking on a cushion of air. This is due in large part to the ergonomically molded EVA foot-bed which was designed specifically for shock absorption.

The SWIMS George Summer Lace Loafer is available now online.
