Finding Your Perfect Summer Shoe

April 18, 2016

When it comes to summer shoes, I always stick to one or two pairs that I love and that I know will go with anything. I like to separate summer shoes into four different categories. The best way to find the perfect summer shoe is by asking yourself some simple questions.
  1. What does my daily routine consist of? Do I work in an office every day? Are my days casual and laid back? Do my days involve heavy labor?
  2. What do I like best in a shoe? Style or comfort? Or both?
  3. Do my feet need support?
After you answer those basic questions, you should be able to figure out which kind of summer shoe you are in need of. 

Flats:  If you're someone who wears flats, I linked a bunch of gorgeous styles that are really in right now below. A lady working in an office or having her days filled with constant meetings and professional gatherings would benefit from investing in some summer flats. Flats are great in the summer to wear when going out to dinner, to work, or on casual dates. Flats like espadrilles are perfect for the summer because they're really comfortable, they're easy to bring around, and they're perfect for the hot weather/beachwear. There are much fancier flats like the Valentino knockoffs that give just the right amount of class while also being the perfect amount of casual. These denim Halogen ones are beautiful! It all comes down to preference and what you do on a daily basis to determine exactly which flats best suit you!

Wedges: Wedges are perfect for the lady who has a more casual schedule. One where she goes out for lunch around 2pm and then works from home for the rest of the day. Wedges are also lovely for going out. When I go out for dinner or for drinks in the summer, I am most likely always going to be wearing a pair of wedges. Wedges these days are becoming more and more comfortable- which is amazing for us gals! I like a pair of wedges with a thick but soft sole, something that gives support but isn't too harsh on the arch of my foot. These ones by Saludos are perfect if you prefer a wedge like mine. 

Sandals: The next category is sandals. Sandals are great for going out on the weekends, for a casual job, or beach days. I absolutely love these colorful ones by Schutz- I want to get my hands on a pair of those ASAP! These nude sandals by Hinge are stunning and must be pretty comfortable since they have a thick heel! I like flat sandals for the beach- but sometimes sandals can really hurt people with sensitive feet, so be sure to take that into consideration! 

Sneakers: This category is perfect for girls who are always on their feet in the summer! We had a product developer from New Balance come into my textiles class the other day and I fell in love with the brand! New Balance is meant for comfort but is also really stylish- which is exactly what I look for in a sneaker! I also have really been loving the look of leather tennis shoes lately like these by A.P.C. I have also been really wanting to get my hands on the Converse Shoreline Sneaker because they're easier to get on than the regular ones which is better for the warmer months.

Hopefully this helped you find your perfect pair of shoes for the summer!
