Tread+Miller's selection of men’s footwear this spring/summer is spot on for the city dweller, whether kicking back at a favourite hangout on a weekend, or stepping out to tackle the week head-on on a Monday morning. Making the most of everything an urban lifestyle offers, Tread+Miller's shoes are for the man who enjoys his space, summer and stylish shoes. That said, the beauty of men's footwear is that most styles are not seasonbound and can be worn year-round. Investing in a few good pairs from Tread+Miller will see you through summer and many more seasons to come.

Classic shoes such as Oxfords, Derby shoes, monk-strap styles and brogues are quintessential wardrobe staples. A pair of polished lace-ups are essential to making a good impression. You cannot go wrong with one of Tread+Miller’s classic Arthur Jacks, or locally produced Crockett & Jones, styles. On occasions when it's necessary to pull out all the stops, Arthur Jack's smooth, sleek Atticus lace-ups will meet the dress code in style. No visible stitching and smooth detailing echo the shoes’ elegance, versatility and timelessness.
A casual loafer paired with a blazer and linen trousers complete the manabout-town look, making it the ideal office look this summer. Neutral colours, such as black (Arthur Jack Sheffield shoes), or brown (Arthur Jack Tate shoe) make smart-casual dressing easier than ever. Tread+Miller has casual boots covered, with the breathable suede Dax style in a choice of colours. Dress them up or down, with or without socks, for yearround comfort. Alternatively, for men whose shoes need to be able to walk the extra mile, there are the real workhorses: Caterpillar boots and shoes.
Trainers, sneakers, court shoes… call them what you will, but they have become the on-the-go man's go-to summer shoes. Light, comfortable and versatile, informal footwear should not be underestimated. White sneakers in particular are a key trend this summer and teamed up with shorts and a T-shirt, they represent the ultimate in casual dressing. Look out for Tread+Miller's Adidas Cloudfoam range of court shoes with padded cloudfoam technology, or the VS Pace low-top shoe with Adidas's hallmark stripes on the sides. For those whose taste runs to the less casual, there is a choice of sleek Arthur Jack Trey sneakers in navy or black leather. Boat shoes have been around for close to a hundred years and remain the essential summer shoe, as well as a welcome alternative to trainers. Originally designed by Paul Sperry as practical footwear when sailing, boat shoes became a vital element of the ’80s preppy style. Think rugged stitching, leather uppers and slip-resistant soles, such as a pair of navy Arthur Jack Jagger boat shoes for wearing with jeans or shorts all summer long. When the beach beckons, every man needs a pair of flip-flops that's sturdy but ultra-comfortable. Tread+Miller has Tsonga's Tslops with leather straps and a padded footbed for extra comfort. Arthur Jack's Ashton leather thongs are sleeker and make for great dressed-down footwear that's stylishly casual. The full range of Tread+Miller spring/summer 2018 sandals covers the spectrum from flip-flops to slip-on-and-step-out styles such as Arthur Jack's Killian and Solomon sandals, whose broad straps offer a better fit, as well as the Cassius and Cosby styles. Nautical inspired flip-flops in red and blue, offer the ultimate in casual dressing.
Because summer is about dressing light, Tread+Miller is focusing on the essentials: wallets, belts, slick hats and traditional shoe-care products.
Wallets range from billfolds for carrying the essentials to clasped styles that keep cash as well as cards secure. The range is simple, practical and timeless, and comes in a choice of leather and suede in several neutral colours, such as grey, chocolate, rust and black. The new snakeskin styles offer a more exotic option. The plain leather belts are easy to mix and match with suits, chinos and jeans, while Melik's textured Gunner belt allows for a style statement. Equally, Tread+Miller's range of socks in quirky prints, are just the ticket for taking a suit
from serious to snappy. For the upcoming holiday, whether it’s a city break or a longer stay, Arthur Jack's brown and black leather travel bags are back, along with the Milan Messenger, Paris Satchel and Madrid Roller.
The curated women's collection compliments the colours and styles of the men's range with block heels, brogues, loafers, monk straps and Rare Earth's Sophia, an interpretation of the popular babouche loafers. The Tread+Miller spring/summer collection is available in store and online from October with new styles being added every month.
