Casual, but not at all sloppy, these stylish slip-ons come in loads of great shades, any of which would be ideal for spring and summer. My favorites are the navy and burnt orange versions, but there's no denying that the gray, brown and flint versions are more traditional choices.

Whichever color you prefer, you can't go wrong with these classic, casual suede loafers, and any of these gorgeous slip-on shoes would be ideal with jeans, shorts or casual pants. (Buy Direct)

LaCoste 'Corbon 4' - Spring Boat Shoes for Men

Over the last couple of years, it's become easier to find colorful men's shoes. You can find everything from dress oxfords to boots, and sneakers to driving mocs in blues, reds, oranges, greens and yellows. Personally, I think it's one of the more exciting trends the men's footwear market has seen in a while, but I knew that not every guy would share my enthusiasm for a pair of pink suede wingtips, so I chose to feature these muted red suede boat shoes instead.

Great for pairing with jeans or shorts, these boat shoes also come in a stunning shade of light blue, as well as a more classic stone color. (Buy Direct)

Vans Classic Slip-Ons - Classic and Casual Spring Shoes for Men

When warm weather hits, a lot of guys are looking for a pair of casual, slip-on shoes to just kick around in -- styles like the classic slip-on from Vans.

Offered in loads of colors, materials, and patterns, shoes like these look great with shorts, and they can also work well with jeans and khakis. An added advantage of this particular pair is that they're pretty reasonably-priced at less than $50. (Buy Direct)

SeaVees '3 Eye Chukka' - Chukka Boots for Men

Chukka boots, and shoes styled like chukka boots, have been experiencing quite a comeback over the last few years, and they're a great choice for transitioning from cool to warm weather. I love the 'Mason' chukka boots from Frye, but when choosing for yourself, base your decision on how you're going to wear them, and what you're going to wear with them.

If you want something with a little more of a classic, clean-cut look, opt for styles like the Clarks Desert Boots for men; if you're looking for something more on the edgy side, you might prefer styles like the 'Hipster' chukka from John Varvatos. (Buy Direct)

Especially popular and well-reviewed, Sanuk shoes are just about as casual as they come, and the 'Vagabond' is no exception to that rule. Available in khaki, gray, moss and charcoal, these men's shoes would be an ideal match for shorts, jeans, or casual pants, and they're perfect for spring and summer. (Buy Direct)
