The type of shoes you choose to wear can make or break you this summer. Plan and check out the types of shoes you need this summer!
1. Flip Flops
This is an obvious summer choice of sandals. These types of shoes are good for a day at the beach or even a casual day window shopping. They’re very comfortable because they are lightweight and can just slide on and off easily. They are great on the beach but not so much on a tile floor like in a shower or poolside. These shoes can be inexpensive and still have great quality. Plus, these shoes are perfect for showing off that new pedicure.
These closed toes shoes are incredibly comfortable and come in a variety of colors. I refer to these types of shoes as Chucks, but they’re called Chuck Taylor All-Stars or even Converse All-Stars. These shoes have been around since the early 1900s and are still very popular today. Chucks will never go out of style. Some people wear these shoes no matter how bad they look. I think wear and tear give the shoes a little personality. These make perfect summer shoes when you want your look to be more casual. These shoes can go with shorts, jeans, and even a simple skirt.
These are the perfect summer shoes especially for those that are going to be going in and out of the water. These types of shoes are made out of foam and the water doesn’t change the fit or style of the shoe. These shoes are also slip-resistant. Not only are you going to be stylish you will also be safe. I say that it is a great summer combination. Even though some wear the shoes with socks they are typically worn without them. Crocs are casual footwear that many people wear throughout the year. Crocs can be worn by women, men, and children, so you can grab a pair for the whole family. The first pair of Crocs came out in 2002 in Florida and has since sold over 300 million pairs. Grab a pair and become a trendsetter.
They make these shoes without shoe strings. These are the type of shoes just slide on and you don’t have to worry about tying them up before heading out. They are casual and can be comfortably worn with any outfit.
These comfortable waterproof shoes can be worn by the poolside or even at the beach. The sole of the shoe is cushy which makes the shoe so comfortable. They are similar to flip flops except Slides do not have the thong in between the big and 2nd toe. Slides are non-slip so while you are walking fashionably around the poolside, falling doesn’t have to be on your mind. They also do not absorb water so there will be no time in your summer waiting for these shoes to dry out. Another plus about the shoes not absorbing water is that there is no rotten mildew smell. That is not a smell you want to be associated with.
6. Ankle Boots or Booties
These types of shoes are perfect for summer. These boots are semi-formal, there not for the beach but definitely for summer get together or a stroll through the mall. They will go perfectly with a pair of leggings or skinny jeans. Your feet may get hot but you would look super cute rocking a pair of these this summer.
7. Wedge sandals
These sandals are casual and relaxed. They can be worn with a pair of shorts or a nice pair of jeans. If you want to go more for a summer look pair them up with a maxi dress. Wedges are a 70’s trend that is still trending today. These shoes offer support to your feet which allows you to wear them longer and remain comfortable.
8. Ballerina Flats
These shoes are very comfortable and are great for summer. They just slide right on and go. They are classic and will dress up any outfit. These shoes are lightweight and sturdy and will pack easily in your suitcase this summer. They come in a variety of styles; pointed toe, square toe, open heel, and a small wedged heel. Wear whichever makes you comfortable. These can be worn with or without socks. I’ve seen those that wear these shoes with socks wear small socks that are not visible. These aren’t for the beach but definitely can be worn while shopping. The sand and water at the beach can be detrimental to your Ballerina shoes.
9. Gladiator Sandals
These shoes can be worn at the beach but continually tying and untying them may become an annoyance. They bring attention to your legs. So, wearing these shoes with shorts or a midi dress would be a great combination this summer. These shoes have a flat sole like a typical sandal but also have several straps that wrap up around the leg. If you are going to be attending a summer festival or going on a shopping spree, these are your go-to shoes.
These are shoes for the summer night parties when you want to look a little fancier. These shoes will definitely turn heads so make sure you have the right amount of confidence when you rock these. These types of shoes go back to the 15th century and men even worn them to appear taller. So if want to show off your legs and also appear a few inches taller, stilettos are going to be your best friend. If you choose to rock a pair of open-toed stilettos please, I repeat please, make sure your toes have received a fresh pedicure. These shoes will grab so much attention and the icing on the cake will be if the and snuggled with nice pedicured toes.
