White bucks are the Southside Cocktail of shoes—a seasonal refreshment under-appreciated by most men (and women). Though you can wear them easily in late spring and early autumn, they’re never more charming than in the hot, sun-filled days of summer. Pair them with a lightweight suit or just follow the advice of Thom Browne: “Wear them like they were real shoes. With seersucker, with wool, with jeans. You don’t have to dress them up.” Cole Haan’s Air Colton Oxford is the ideal white buck. They are classic in design. Its Nike Air technology testifies its comfort and the red brick EVA sole keeps you light on your feet. And for the lady at the bar in summer bucks, your Southside is on me.
