So… my shoe size is a UK 1, but it’s okay you don’t have to feel sorry for me, I’m used to it. For more those with more fortunately sized feet, you’d think that shoe shopping would be much easier and now you’ve found this post it definitely will be. This spring/ summer sees the comeback of embellishments – cute bows, pom poms and lace detailing. Then there’s the perennial espadrille style, Western cowgirl boots and perhaps the shoe of the year, mules. These luxe slip ons are a update on the Gucci loafers that dominated our Instagram feeds and street style snaps for the last two years. Take a look at the sexiest, on trend summer shoes for all budgets below.
1. Castaner Kathy metallic mesh espadrilles | 2. Castaner metallic leather espadrille mules | 3. Charles and Keith metallic heel sandals in white | 4. Kaanas Santa Helena sandal | 5. Topshop Western boots
Castaner espadrilles for under £80 is a steal, check out the selection on The Outnet for your favourite style. One of my go-to shoe brands when I’m in Asia (but they ship worldwide) is Charles and Keith, a Singaporean label that was bought by LVMH. Always on-trend and affordable, I’ve spotted a cute minimal white sandal that will match with almost everything.
I love discovering those special items that no one else will have – Anthropologie have these gold sliders that remind me of the riads in Marrakech (although if you read my post you’ll know I’m very against any open shoe while exploring the city!). And Betsy Johnson, known for her outlandish and sassy style offers up these glamorous pink satin flats with an eye-catching embellishment. One for the modern day Marie Antoinette.
1. Sophia Webster Andie crystal and bow embellished leather mules | 2. Aquazzura pink Powder Puff satin mules | 3. Balenciaga Knife pumps | 4. MALONE SOULIERS X Emanuel Ungaro Maisie satin mules | 5. Aquazzura Nolita faux pearl-embellished leather mules
Who doesn’t want a pair of Balenciaga’s signature Knife pumps? Elegant, daring and so beautifully crafted, it’s on my lust list. Bows and pom poms are the star of the luxury shoe design this summer, find your perfect pair at Aquazzura. My favourite are these hot pink mules that are fun and classic; I’d wear them with a white silk shirt, a floral midi skirt and heavy gold jewellery.
