    Summer Shoes

    I'm going to a friends party in Malaga next weekend, I'm stumped to what shoes I should wear in the evening.
    I'm thinking jeans, All saints low scoop t-shirt and A nice light grey H & M blazer.

    I was thinking maybe the Blazer might be too much as it's around 22 degree's but might dip a little at night

    Would a nice pair a brogue's be good with this look or would anyone recommend anything similar? Any advice would be great as I really don't have a clue!!

    Brogues might look a bit formal in that context, Chelsea boots might be a better option.
    Something like this: http://www.topman.com/webapp/wcs/sto...gory_rn=207282

    Now, I don't want to lecture anyone in particular here (Sorry, Jonesy, you just got caught in the fire ), but I don't understand why so many on this forum consider brogues formal. They're (generally) not considered a formal shoe. In fact, at formal occasions the advise is (generally) to avoid them, while Chelsea Boots on the other hand are often mentioned as a viable option when you want to make your formal clothing a little less strict.

    I think brogues would work excellent. Since it's early spring, the temperature is likely to drop, especially later in the evening, so they wouldn't be too warm. Jonesy's suggested Chelsea Boot is not a bad one, as long as they're not too warm.

    I'd go for a brogue, or a suede desert boot.

    I would rather put on sneakers or trainers. It's party, you will wear jeans and t-shirt, so you can make it loose/

    I think some leather sandals would give the outfit a cool twist, or possibly some espadrilles

    A bit late on reply, but in my opinion a nice pair of timbaland boat shoes would fit perfectly.
