These smart-look­ing shoes are good for sum­mer use. They have mesh sides and rel­a­tively large holes in the sole to let the wa­ter es­cape quickly. They also let wa­ter in, but see­ing as they drained in just 16 sec­onds (the sec­ond quick­est on test) the wa­ter won’t be in there for long. The in­side has had an anti-bac­te­rial treat­ment, but all those holes work won­ders for al­low­ing air to cir­cu­late.

They have a high, pro­tec­tive heel which might not suit every­one’s feet, and while the big toe is well pro­tected, oth­ers toes are less so. The sole is pat­terned but didn’t shine in our grip test.

One of the best per­form­ers for ven­ti­la­tion – a great choice dur­ing the sum­mer
