There’s no denying that a good pair of shoes can take you places, especially during the summer. Pack away those heavy leather boots in favour of sturdy sandals, flip-flops and sneakers for exploring the summer in comfort and style. So whether you’re heading to the beach or going to a bar, here are five pairs of shoes you need for summer.
Want to wear heels without compromising the state of your feet? Wedges are a great option since they have so much more support than platform or stilettos and are completely weather appropriate.
A summer staple from the early 1960s, these unisex shoes are so quick and easy to style. Slip-ons, lace-up espadrilles and even a combination of the two are easy ways to take your look from beach to bar with minimal effort.
Comfy sandals are the best way to dress-up a fun summer tunic and keep cool all day long. Make sure the pair you’ve settled on has a thick and sturdy sole which won’t put pressure on your feet or toes.
If you’re exploring the city or making the most of the warm weather, sneakers are the best option. Why? Although they might make your feet feel rather sweaty, they offer so much more support than sandals and flip-flops which only put pressure on your foot!
While these might not be the most glamourous choice, they are definitely practical for the pool or beach. Choose a fun and fashionable pair which match the rest of your summer wardrobe, or pack them in your beach bag for easy access.

Although we really don’t need another excuse to buy more shoes, summer is the perfect reason to stock-up on a variety of footwear for the new season. But with so much variety out there on the market, where do we start?
Use the following footwear options as a sartorial guide for shoes that you need to survive the warmer season.
Wedges are an incredible shoe for the summer, since they are still very dressy but comfortable at the same time. To show off your killer-tan, choose a colour such as brown or black (since this can also go with almost any outfit).
If you plan on wearing wedges for a long time, choose a pair which has a tiny platform – this will keep your feet happy all night long!

Whether you prefer a flat or heeled sandal, there is no denying that lace-up straps are a big trend this season. Wrap them around your ankle and make sure to tie with a double knot so they don’t come tumbling down!
Last and not least have to be mules. Love it or leave it, but this trend has been resurrected from the late 90s, and it’s not going back anytime soon! Not only are mules extremely versatile, but they are a subtle and secure way to dress up your outfit without going over the top.

Want to incorporate the hottest footwear trend into your wardrobe without going over your credit limit? Lace-up sandals are a versatile choice of footwear since they are often very affordable, and can be used to dress an outfit up or down. Below are just a few simple ways to style your new lace-up shoes.
If you want to channel some simple Swedish fashion-blogger vibes, then wear your favourite lace-up sandals with a classic dress. Make sure the fit of the shoes is comfortable and generally avoid buying online if you’re unsure of your sizing. Finish off with a chic satchel bag to carry all of your bits and bobs.
Not the kind of suit you’re thinking about! One of the hottest trends this season is coordinates – which usually consists of a matching blazer and shorts/skirt combination. Choose a pair of black, white, or neutral coloured sandals which won’t overpower the rest of the look.
For the ultimate casual look, wear your favourite pair of distressed denim jeans with a cute pair of lace-up flats. Soft pastel colours work best with darker skin tones, and monochrome colours are perfect if you have fair skin.
For a subtle hint of sophistication, pair your lace-up sandals with a form-fitting midi skirt. This is a classic look which is appropriate for the office, drinks or even a formal dinner. Just throw on a structured blazer and a textured clutch to complete the overall look.
