Wedges

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.

Espadrilles

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.

Sandals

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.

Sneakers

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!

Flip flops

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.
