Every surfer on the planet wishes they could live on a tropical beach somewhere far away from crowds and rules. Where drinks are only served with umbrellas precariously placed on rims, and where toes are always covered with sand. However, most of us have to live in reality, which occasionally calls for shoes, pants, and shirts.

Luckily for surfers, there a number of epic brands that create comfortable and stylish footwear that allows us to look cool without sacrificing our surf style. And since we pride ourselves on being a surf shop that carries today's best surf brands, we have curated a collection of our five favorite pairs of shoes for surfers. From a day at the office to a night out on the town, these are our top five shoes for surfers.

1. Sanuk Men’s Shoes TKOA classic and clean boat style shoe, the Sanuk TKO is a wear everywhere surf shoe. Sanuk prides itself on comfort and these classic kicks don’t disappoint. Whether you pair these up with a pair of slacks or throw them on after a morning surf session, these shoes are a go to classic for surfers everywhere.

2. Reef Men’s Coastal Cruisers Spiniker Mid NB

The Laid Back Office
For those of you who are lucky enough to work in an office that allows sandals, we highly recommend you take full advantage the perk! Don't be that guy that rocks up in dollar store flip-flops though. Invest in a nice pair of leather sandals that show people you are still professional in your approach.
