Nohea Lace Mesh by OluKai
"Nohea" means "handsome" in Hawaiian and, boy, are these aptly named. Breathable, durable and upscale casual, they look good wherever you're walking. Or sitting. Or riding.

Waltham by Simple Shoes
Although you'll feel like you're walking on air, the distressed canvas Waltham is sturdy enough for walking across boulders – or strolling along Las Ramblas and enjoying a cocktail on the rocks. The padded collar and memory foam insole ensure comfort and prove, once again, that Simple is best.
