Summer is possibly my favorite foot season. Oh sure, winter boots are more practical (and probably have better arch support) and there is something so lovely about a good fall oxford (and don’t forget your Springtime wellies!) but to me, there is just nothing better than the lightweight Summer shoe.
Every summer I gravitate toward the same exact arsenal of footwear, with little to no deviation. Sure, some years I’ll try something trendy, but generally I wear the same shoes all summer every summer, and I recommend all of them with two giant thumbs up!
After the jump, my favorite summertime shoes. Hope you enjoy!
Kork-Ease Bette Vachetta 1 of 7I love the nerdy throw-back of a sturdy pair of Kork-Ease sandals. (And I also love how insanely comfortable and good for your feet they are--I walk a ton!)
This perfect summer shoe can be found at Zappos for $150
Kork-Ease Hailey Wedge Sandal 2 of 7If you're in need of sky high wedges that you can actually walk in, I'm going to recommend you these.
This perfect summer shoe can be found at Nordstrom for $170
Minnetonka Thunderbird Moccasins 3 of 7The best part of these moccs is how the suede conforms and relaxes as you wear them in. I've had mine for a few years now, and they're a summer staple!
This perfect summer shoe can be found at Zappos for $40
Metallic Sperry Topsiders 4 of 7The metallic shimmer gives them just the touch they need to steer you out of too-literal prepville.
This perfect summer shoe can be found at Zappos for $90
Red TOMs 5 of 7TOMs. You love 'em or you hate 'em. I love mine in red. The perfect summer slip on.
This perfect summer shoe can be found at ASOS for $60
Bensimon Slip Ons 6 of 7Do you think a Bensimon is like a French TOM? I have a pair that laces, though I wish I'd gone with the slip on instead.
This perfect summer shoe can be found at Endless for $55
Saltwater Sandals 7 of 7Saltwaters are my summer jam. I've worn them every summer since I was a kid. I bought the pair I'm currently wearing six years ago, and they look good as new! (Though I did finally snag a new pair this week--in red!)
