1. Slip-On Sandals

This is probably one of the most low-maintenance shoes out there. It’s also a popular choice for days you feel basic or bohemian. We love this to add a laid-back vibe to your daily uniform. Pick a pair in a bright color for a complete summery look.

2. Wrap-Around & Strappy Heels

Wrap-around and strappy shoes, in general, are having a moment yet again this summer season. It’s perfect for days when you just want to dress-up a look or add a romantic flavor for a date night out. The heel is large and this adds more support to your feet so you can strut around the city with more comfort.

3. Orthopedic Slippers

One word: Birkenstocks. These shoes are orthopedic but stylish. This is where the brand excels, and their shoes have been a staple in our shoe closet because it’s so easy to mix and match our summer looks. They last for a very long time and are the perfect choice to take to a vacation if you know you will have to do some walking!

4. Platforms

Whether it be platform sandals or platform sneakers, you can’t deny that the hype around them is real. Choose this if you want to add a couple of inches to your height or if really want to make a fashion statement in the city this summer.

5. Kitten Heels for Work

Stiletto heels that are way too high are overrated and uncomfortable to wear. Cue in kitten heels who add a bit of height while making you look cute. We highly recommend this pair if you’re always out and about in the office or at events and you like to add a more polished touch to your outfit.

6. Daddy Sneakers

We love the Yeezy, NMD, and Huarache but daddy-looking shoes are forever. Think Nike Cortez, New Balance Sneakers, and even Skechers Go. These shoes are uber comfortable, perfect for both daily errands and casual dress-up days with the boys.

7. Fringe, Feather, and Faux Fur

Fringe, feather, and faux fur details add a touch of glam to anything. Wear these for brunch dates with the girls and if you really want to flaunt it, on an afternoon of shopping.

8. Gen Z Yellow

Step aside Millennial Pink ’cause Gen Z Yellow is currently making waves this summer. Wear anything yellow and you’ll surely turn heads wherever you go.

9. Mules that are comfortable and chic

Mules are the go-to casual shoes for you if you want a touch of chic but don’t want to go overboard. Think, lazy-chic shoes that you can add to your staple chic looks.

10. The transparent trend in shoes

This one’s a wild card in your summer shoe closet but it can be a classic if you know which style to choose. We suggest either getting flats or block heels, so you can easily match them to your all-year-round clothes. Trends come and go, anyway, so might as well buy one this season!

Stylish from head to toe

When it comes to shoes, it’s better to invest in brands that you know will last, so you have better wear time. We suggest you head over to Zalora and Asos since they carry most of these brands and styles. Overall, make sure that summer shoes you’ll buy this season will last next summer and even the next, so you can really get a good bang for your buck.
