We’ve just had an amazing Easter bank holiday weekend, with sunshine galore. However, many of you may have booked a summer holiday to even warmer places – or so we hope!

There’s a durable rubber sole unit for generous support, plus a comfy “memory foam” insole. Available in sizes 7 to 11, this is a classic summer deck shoe that will last for many years to come.
