Shoes for summer – Top 5 Summer Shoe Trends for 2018

The summer is well and truly here, which means plenty of barbecues, parties and days at the beach. It feels great to be able to enjoy longer and warmer days.

But, keeping your feet comfortable on the hotter days can be tricky. You need to wear the right footwear. Fortunately, firms like make it a lot easier for you to do exactly that. They sell an amazing range of footwear including nearly 350 wide-fit versions.

Buying, stylish, roomy summer footwear has never been easier. But, you still have to choose the right pair. To help you to narrow things down a bit, here are 5 of the nicest options I have come across, so far.

Flat toe post sandals

Perhaps the biggest footwear trend for summer 2018 is totally flat shoes. Virtually, everyone is stocking them. So, if you like flats, now, is definitely the time to treat yourself to some new ones.

There are lots of lovely looking toe post sandals available. If you are one of those people who cannot wear flip-flops because the piece that goes between your toes rubs too much, still try out a pair out. Many of this year´s toe post sandals feature wide foot straps. This means the body of the sandal is held in place more, so you get far less rubbing than you would if you were wearing flip-flops.

Leg tie wedges

If you prefer something a bit higher, a pair of wedge sandals could be the perfect answer. They look great and offer plenty of stability, which puts far less strain on your feet. So, there is a far lower risk of your feet swelling and aching. The leg tie type is especially comfortable.

A pair of strappy medium-heel sandals

For a special evening out or an occasion like a summer wedding, a pair of strappy sandals with a medium height heel is perfect. They look feminine and stylish, especially if you choose to buy a pair in gold or silver.

Canvas pumps

Perhaps the most comfortable style of summer shoe is the canvas pump. They are flat, made from fabric that allows your feet to breathe and styled in a way that means they offer gentle support for the whole foot.

Most retailers stock at least a dozen different versions of this style of shoe. So, it is not hard to find a pair that fits in perfectly with your tastes and the clothes you already own.

Stylish loafers

Loafers are super comfortable. If you are planning a day´s sight-seeing they are the perfect choice. They look especially good when worn with jeans. But, you can also wear them with a casual style skirt, even a maxi dress.

Getting the fit right

Regardless, of the style of shoes or sandals, you choose to buy it is important to get the fit right. This article will help you to buy a pair of summer shoes that fit you well.

    I love shoes, so I read this with great intensity! I am currently wearing my Rothys for summer shoes. They are ok in flash rainstorms and dry quickly.

    I’d prefer to wear shoes that are comfortable mostly flats. But a few heels and wedges here and there will do too.

  5. June 23, 2018 / 2:27 pm

    I wear shoes that are mostly functional, as I am on my feet a lot! I would like to have some dressy pair like the ones you mentioned, though! It’s nice to have some shoes for special occasions.

    I wear heels once and a while especially when going to church. I do prefer flats now that I am older.

    I love a good canvas pump. Canvas is one of the best summer shoe materials in my opinion. I want a pair of strappy leg-tie sandals.

    These are all great ideas for this summer. I am not up with all the latest foot gear but I need a comfortable shoe with a heel that will give me height for my fashions.

      I am all for comfort as well but of late I am adding some style in too.

  10. June 22, 2018 / 11:23 pm

    These are great summer shoes! I need some style advice.

  11. June 22, 2018 / 10:08 pm

    These are all really cute, but living in Florida, I seriously only wear flip flops in the summer. Perhaps I’ll visit some place that I need to grab something different!

      I envy you, would love to visit Florida one day

    I need leg tie wedges in my life! Now the mission is to find a pair that won’t cut the back of my feet – true story, currently recovering from uncomfortable sandals that did just that 🙁

      Oh gosh that sounds painful, hope you find something better

  13. June 22, 2018 / 7:59 pm

    These are pretty. I admit, I mostly just wear flip flops over the summer. I’m all for comfort. And cheap.

      Its always a great feeling wearing new shoes

  15. June 22, 2018 / 4:14 pm

    These shoes look really nice. I have to get shoes that have built-in arch supports or inset arch supports so my feet won’t hurt. I grew up wearing flip-flops but I can’t wear them anymore.

      I grew up wearing flip flops and still love them today but I must say my mum is the same with shoes she needs inbuilt comfort or inserts

  16. June 22, 2018 / 3:31 pm

    I have been looking out for wedges with leg ties! Haven’t found a pair I love yet but agree with you they are definitely a summer essential! xx

    I can’t wear the tall heels anymore. Flats and low shoes with small heels work good for me now. Plus I need a wide shoe so finding the perfect stylish shoe can be difficult sometimes.

      Some of my local stores specialises in wide feet so I am lucky in that regard.
