Footwear for a Sock-Free Summer

By: Justin Livingston, @Justinliv  

With warmer weather around the corner, it’s time to start heating up your summer wardrobe with a few new styles from Timberland that you can wear sans socks.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m usually one to eschew socks no matter the weather. Liberating my ankles from stuffy (and sometimes stinky) socks means I can attack my day feeling comfortable and free. Here, I’ve styled two looks that are going to be on major repeat for me this season: one is a trendy take on my typical summer uniform and the other is a classic warm weather weekend outfit, both featuring stylish, comfortable Timberland footwear.

The first look I’ve put together combines trendy style with a few out-of-the-box elements. Most summer months, I’m sporting some version of this look – think printed top, slim-cut jean, and a comfortable shoe – but to help highlight the new Timberland Amherst Canvas Chukka in White. I tossed on a bright floral button-down, double-cuffed my go-to denim, and laced the chukkas in my own favorite way (sock-free, of course!).

My second look is all about comfortable style. The new Timberland Ranger Moc in Brown is quite possibly the perfect summer shoe – and I wanted to highlight its sockless versatility by pairing it with a classic camp short and bandana. The Ranger Moc ties the whole look together and – now that I think about it – makes this look a sure thing for the music festival circuit! Of course, the style is super comfortable with SensorFlex technology built right in.
