Suede shoes act as a trusty mid-ground between more formal footwear and casual styles. Suede offers the same strength and quality as leather while also adding a better sense of texture to your silhouettes.

Don’t get us wrong, the right pair of leather shoes is an undebatable classic, but in recent years suede shoes have become a rotation essential thanks to their unique patinas and unbreakable construction.

With the warm weather en route, shorts are beginning to assert their position as go-to bottoms, meaning that your footwear choice is more apparent than ever. That’s why summer has always been the sneakerhead’s favorite season — all eyes are on the kicks.

Better still, without the prospect of unexpected showers, you can be sure that your suede will survive a day out. It makes sense, then, that we hit SSENSE to line up some suede shoes for our summer rotations.

Check out the best suede shoes below.
