It’s Time to Free Your Knees

July 12, 2019 2 min read

Feeling the heat? Yes, it’s shorts season. Vacations, weekend cookouts, or just surviving the city, it’s time to free your knees. We’ve picked out three fresh new ways to wear shorts — and the only pair of shoes to pair them with right now (Spoiler: it’s boat shoes).


Dockers shorts

The Plaid Shorts

Checks always look fresh, and they’re not just for shirts. Lightweight but rugged enough for all your adventures (think of them as your favorite khakis, only shorter), these plaid Dockers shorts are our pick for navigating summer in the city. Team them with a tee and a short sleeve button down layered on top.



The Cargo Shorts

It’s always good to see utility making a comeback — because who ever said no to more pockets? Get prepped for any summer situation with these Dockers cargo shorts in dark olive, which have plenty of space in those patch pockets to stash all your stuff.

The Straight Fit Shorts

Every guy needs a pair of fuss-free shorts, ideally in comfortable stretch twill with a straight-leg cut that hits neatly above the knee. The Dockers Smart 360 Flex Shorts are perfect with a classic polo for sure, but they like teaming up with a simple stripey tee when you’re off-duty too.

The Boat Shoe

Easy to slip on and comfortable to wear in the heat, boat shoes might be a warm-weather no-brainer but they’ve never quite been the coolest shoe on the sidewalk — until now. With their signature eyelets and laces, boat shoes are currently enjoying a hefty uptick in credibility thanks to designers like Prada, Gucci and Saint Laurent — so you can feel smugly cutting edge when you step outside in your favorite shoe this summer.

Which to choose? The leather Vargas boat shoe from Dockersis a bestseller that looks great in tan or navy if you’re feeling particularly preppy; or try the Homer, with its stretch sock collar for comfort. Lightweight and flexible, check out our full selection of boat shoes here.
