Summa-Time is Coming: Here Are All the Shoe Trends You Need to Wear

Summa-Time is Coming: Here Are All the Shoe Trends You Need to Wear

With summer just weeks away (YAY), we’re here (hi, hello) to steer you in the right direction and give you all the deets for all the shoe trends of the season. I need to emphasize that I’ve scrolled through my social feeds, checked up and down the fashion market, and drooled over countless runway looks just so you could put your best foot forward. (And no, I will not apologize for these puns!)

Many of our ultimate faves are back and designers are playing hard on nostalgic feels (we’re seeing jellies in every silhouette)! The classic fisherman sandal and good ol’ mules are also back! What I’m loving is the barely-there trend—perf for wearing day to night. You can easily pair with a blouse and denim while grinding it out at the office or with a colorful floral dress for a summer night out. Then, we have another timeless classic: ballet flats. These will be so comfortable all summer long, especially when running around all day. Tbh, there’s so much more we can share but we’d rather just show you. You have endless options to choose from; keep scrolling to find your next summer shoe.

Barely-There Sandals

The sleek and minimal barely-there sandals continue to make a comeback! Truly, this ’90s-inspired sandal can be paired with pretty much any look.
