10 gifts for our Father’s figures

Shopping for Father's Day gifts is possibly one of the hardest to cover. It always seems to be a last-minute kind of job, but we know our Father figures deserve more than a last-minute chocolate bar this year. 

This year we rounded up the footwear from Veja, Clarks and more that we think they’d appreciate. Proving you know them and their style, or getting them that gift they’d never buy themselves, here are the shoes to gift this Father's Day. 

Father's Day

When is Father’s Day UK? 

Father’s Day this year is Sunday the 18th of June. The date always falls on the 3rd Sunday of the month, giving you plenty of time to sort out a great gift. 


1. Veja Men's Esplar Leather Trainers - Extra White/Black

If your Dad’s style is toned down but still cool, playing with modern minimalist vibes, how about some Veja trainers? This a popular option especially for summer, in the retro-inspired low-top silhouette with a lace-up fastening in this great colour tone to pair with everything. 

2. Novesta Star Master Canvas Low Top Trainers

If you are looking for everyday shoes that are equally stylish and comfortable our recommendation would be the Novesta Star Master Canvas Trainer. In black with the cream gum sole, this is the perfect shoe to wear with shorts or trousers whether it's for work or family weekends.

3. Keen Jasper II Suede Trainers

Does your dad enjoy being outdoors, walking or sporting? The brand KEEN has soared in popularity recently and their outdoor-inspired Jasper trainers in blue suede are a great multi-purpose on-trend gift for your dad.

4. Birkenstock Men's Arizona Birko-Flor Double Strap Sandals

For green-fingered dads who are most commonly found in the garden or on a countryside stroll, get them the ultimate slip-on-and-go shoes. Birkenstocks really are the best of the best sandals, mounding to support the shape of your foot for top-level comfort. The sturdy sole will see your Dad through all his favourite hobbies and past-times and look far better in the garden than those beat-up trainers or slippers. 

5. Clarks Originals Men's Suede Wallabee Shoes - Cola

The classic Clarks Original Suede Wallabee is the perfect hybrid shoe option. It is a timeless style which is still on-trend without your Dad feeling as if he is trying too hard. Coming in the Cola colour these are the perfect all-year-round shoe, for casual and smart occasions.

The white leather heel counters, designer logo, webbing trims and rubber sole for optimum comfort are a thoughtful gift for someone who really get's their dad's style. 

7. G.H. Bass & Co. Men's Larson Leather Moc Penny Loafers
