What To Look For In A Casual Mens Shoe That’s Perfect For The Wellington Climate

Finding The Perfect Men's Sandals 


While New Zealand is a picturesque getaway location, it does have a reputation for extremely changeable weather and quick hot or cold flashes. As such, you need casual men’s shoes that are up to the challenge. And, we know that not all guys deal with the weather the same way, especially when they’re Wellington locals. Today, we wanted to give you a quick overview of the kinds of casual men’s shoes that Spendless has on offer so that you can find your perfect pick!


Boat styles


These are one kind of casual men’s shoes that would be great for any New Zealander to add to their collection. These comfortable boat styles slide onto your feet and have a fully-enclosed design— you’ll appreciate having your toes covered by these casual men’s shoes when the Wellington winds pick up!


Casual men’s shoes from this lineup can be a great way to dress up or dress down a look. You can certainly get away with wearing boat styles to more places than your slides or beach jandals. With a fresh, modern colour palette and exposed laces on the sides, these are trendy, comfortable, and weather appropriate!




You should also think about our trainers, sneakers, and other sporty kinds. With activewear gaining popularity more than ever this season, you can complete a comfy but ready-to-go look with any of these trendy casual men’s shoes. For the full skater look, try looks with retro stripes or high-top ankles. You can collect casual men’s shoes with great soles for sports, running, or working out. Otherwise, fashion-focused trainers with smoother bases will always be a top pick.


A pair for the house


We’ll split these casual men’s shoes into two parts: indoor or outdoor sets.


If you want something to have around the house or keep your feet cosy while you kick back on the couch, then our slippers would be an excellent choice. Soft, warm, and flexible, you’ll love sliding into these casual men’s shoes after a long day.


Our enclosed slip-on styles with grooved grips are excellent casual men’s shoes to wear out in the shed, while mowing the lawn, or even for taking the bins out.


Toeing the line into formal wear


Ankle boots are the perfect casual men’s shoes if you’d like a semi-formal style that can work trans-seasonally. We have sophisticated feeling zip-up boots in glossy black and brown material, and softer lace-up styles in faux suede. Either of these casual men’s shoes can bring an exciting texture element.


Casual men’s shoes like ankle boots are fantastic because you’re free to match them with jeans, work pants, or whatever else that you like! In spring or summer, a natural match would be some smart shorts and a buttoned shirt, while winter and autumn outfits call for a stylish matching jacket.


Looks to buy if the cool doesn’t bother you


Sandals are another sort of casual men’s shoes that we can’t say no to in 2019. With cool peep-toe slides, suave gladiators, and all of your favourite beach and outdoor styles fit with fresh faces, this niche range of casual men’s shoes is tempting for any Wellington local. We have all the reef-walkers and waterproof summer sandals you could want. Slide into our smooth casual men’s and go soak up the sunshine while it lasts.


If you need a fast, hassle-free set of casual men’s shoes, then these are just the thing!
