When the sun starts to shine, the beer gardens begin to fill and the nights get longer, it’s time you got your knees out and whacked on some shorts. Knowing exactly what shoes to wear with shorts can cause quite a few headaches for some. Are they too chunky? Do they look smart enough? Are sandals acceptable?
These are just a few questions you may be mulling over in your mind when pairing your shorts and shoes together. So, to make sure you never have those worries again, we’re going to be looking at the various shorts styles you’ve got to choose from and the footwear that best suits them. But enough with the chit-chat, let’s get into it.
When it comes to the fit of your shorts you have two main options – just above the knee or half way up your thigh. You don’t want them falling on your knee and you certainly don’t want them halfway down your shin – it’s not the 90s and no one’s making that look good at the moment. If you’re a taller guy with long legs I’d probably go for a length that sits just above your knee. Shorter legs can get away with them finishing halfway up the thigh for an 80’s aesthetic.
