Summer is officially in full-effect, and while most people instantly reach for their canvas plimsolls or boat shoes that smell like they've been laying in a lake for a season, you should reevaluate your options. A pair of Alden shoes will last you way longer than a summer or two, and when the brand has made its blucher available in a milkshake suede—it's time to say hello to proper footwear on hot summer days. 

These might cost you almost half a stack, but the quality is unparalleled, and admit it, you've always wanted to get all Gatsby for the summer. What better way than with a pair of hardbottom shoes that will replace your bucks and sweaty pairs of Chucks? If you're ready to take the plunge, and end up looking awesome, Need Supply is your best friend. The shoes are available exclusively at the Virginia retailer's brick-and-mortar and e-commerce locations. Check them out here.
