Vans Authentics and Sperry Topsiders. Really, what can I say? They’re pretty much indispensable for the summer, and they’re both damn good looking in a “so classic you can’t even try to fuck with it” sense.
My personal favorite, for each, is the white variety. Not the eye-searing optical white, but the more natural and toned down version. Vans calls it “True White,” and Sperry went for the “Ice” moniker. Get either one and I promise you’ll be very happy you did. And do yourself a favor and skip the socks. They both look exponentially better when rocked all by their lonesome.

One final reminder: get ‘em dirty. They look even better once they get a little thrashed.
