5 spring shoe picks for you or the men in your life
Guys, looking for a new pair of shoes this spring? Well, luckily new spring footwear isn't just for women but men as well. We tend to discuss a lot more about women's shoes since women normally have more shoe options than men do. That doesn’t mean men’s shoes don’t have options though. Our store makes sure to keep a wide variety of shoes for men in stock.
We of course have different flip-flop shoe options because warm weather normally includes sandals. Flips flops aren't the only spring Men's shoe ideas out there though. We also have other options if flip-flops aren’t the shoe choice for you. Need some ideas? Here are 5 Men's shoe options we think you love.
Our first men’s shoe option is the Endeavor Fisherman Sandal by SAS. Made from genuine leather the Endeavor is a good first pick for a new spring shoe. The leather gives the It’s comfortable enough for a weekend outing with friends or a day spent on your feet.
The insole cushions the arches and curves of your foot and the outsole provides a cushion that lasts all day. They’re also great at keeping your feet cool. The straps are designed with space between them to increase the shoe's airflow. Need to adjust the shoes to fit? The adjustable buckle and hook and loop closure add the ability to quickly and easily fit the shoe for your needs.
And if you’re wondering why they’re called Fisherman Sandals, that’s an easy answer. “A fisherman sandal is a type of footwear that features an open upper style with slightly interspaced straps that are not designed to be adjustable. This design allows water to drain out of the sandals as well as lets air into the footwear, keeping your feet fresh.”
Endeavor Fisherman Sandal Features
Genuine Leather Upper: Genuine leather in a variety of colors and textures is used on the upper of the shoe.
Adjustable Buckle and Hook and Loop Closure: Hook and loop design along with a buckle detail provide adjustability throughout the day.
Full-Length Leather Socklining: A full-length leather sock lining offers natural antimicrobial and breathability.
Contoured Molded Insole: Polyurethane insole is molded to create a seamless cushion shaped to the natural arches and curves of your foot.
Cushion Outsole: Superior polyurethane material is durable, flexible, and provides a long-lasting cushion for all-day comfort.
Looking to learn to sail, take a boat ride, or throw your fishing pole out over the docks? Our next spring shoe options are great for any of mentioned ideas and more. Spring is a great time to learn something new outside or continue an old outdoor hobby since the weather is so pleasant. Also made of genuine leather the Fitsmart Loafer looks as great as it feels. With comfort and breathability in mind, your water adventures won’t be ruined by uncomfortable shoes.
To add to the comfort of the shoes, it comes with a removable Ortholite footbed. We also offer custom-made orthotics and over-the-counter inserts that can be added to the Fistmart Loafer if the included Ortholite isn’t quite the right fit. For custom-made orthotics, you need a doctor’s prescription and appointment to get started.

Removable Ortholite® footbed offers long-wearing cushioning and allows for your own orthotics as needed
A nylon stability shank embedded into the midsole supports the arch and helps you walk more smoothly

Another activity the spring is great for is exercising. Cold weather is nice for some runners because you may sweat less ,but for some, the weather is much too cold to be out running. Spring brings nice weather that isn’t too hot yet and is perfect for exercising. You’ll need a good pair of sneakers though. A good sneaker pick for going running and walking is the New Balance 847 V4. The outsole’s full rubber composition gives your steps the traction to overcome the outdoors.

TRUFUSE midsole cushioning combines two different foams to deliver responsively, durable cushioning

One of our favorite flip-flops is definitely the Birkenstock Arizona. We even have some good reasons why you should purchase a pair of Birkenstock Arizona’s versus cheaper flip flops. That doesn’t mean we don’t have other flip-flop options for spring that we like. One of those options is the Ooohh Sport Flex by Oofos. It’s the shoe for anyone who needs relaxing after a long day but still needs the support that shoes give your feet. They’re also machine washable which is a great feature for any shoe.
OOfos OOAHH Sport Flex Features
Adjustable velcro strap for optimal fit
Reduces stress on sore feet, knees, and back
Enables more natural motion
Minimalist construction for lightweight
Machine washable, plus moisture and bacteria resistant
OOFOS are made in whole sizes. We recommend sizing down if you are a men’s half size.
Our final shoe is also a flip flop but this time by the brand Vionic. If the Oofos Ooahh isn’t quite what you like, the Tide is hopefully more tempting. It may be just a flip flop but its leather trim gives it a sophisticated look. Add in its lightweight EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) that reduces stress on your feet, ankle, and knees and you’ll love these sandals as much as we do.
Vionic Men's Tide Sandal Features

A soft woven toe post and foam-lined strap ensure a comfortable fit.
Podiatrist-designed, biomechanical Tri-planar Motion Control footbed with a deep heel cup helps stabilize, support, and realign the feet back to their natural position.
Lightweight, flexible medium-density EVA midsole absorbs shock, reducing stress on feet, ankles, and knees.
