The Bally Daddi Is the Patriarch of Men’s Sandals

Men should wear sandals in the summer—the right ones.

We foreswear orthopedic portmanteaus—“mandal,” be gone—in order to fully, unironically enjoy this sandal. Bally Daddi is a grown-up, all-leather summer slip-on equally adept at shoeing your post-pool feet and dressing those feet up under chinos as you walk into the restaurant. The woven leather straps are appropriately rich for what will likely be vacation-wear, and a simple white stripe adds style without flash. (Do you really want to attract that much attention to your toes?) Sandals: no longer just for women, boys and camp counselors. [$425;]
