Spring to Summer Shoes: 13 Styles You Need to Own

Calling all shoe lovers! It’s the time of the year to splurge on a pedi and prepare your tootsies for a few new summer shoes. This season’s shoe styles are all about comfort and wearability. Yes, comfort and style have collided to create a few of the hottest summer styles. We’re talking flatforms, espadrilles, and the chicest flats you’ve ever seen. Check out 13 of the top summer shoe styles to have in your closet.


Espadrille Flats



Espadrille flats will be your go-to sandals all spring and summer. This shoe style worn by Julie of Sincerely Jules pairs prettily with a summer dress or your favorite cutoffs.


Heeled Mules



Slip into a pair of mules for work or a night out. This ’90s-inspired shoe on style blogger Pursuit Of Shoes will be one of your most versatile pairs yet.


Old-School Sneakers



Give your sandals a break, and rock an old-school pair of Adidas Superstars—the same ones you wore in middle school. These white sneaks worn by Sarah of A House In The Hills are back on the feet of cool kids everywhere. Get sporty in your favorite jeans, dress, or skirt.





A solid-color wedge makes a statement against lightweight spring and summer styles. Follow in the footsteps of Happily Grey blogger Mary, and try something a bit sportier to contrast feminine colors and fabrics.


Studded Sandals



Add a little bling to your spring and summer attire with a pair of studded sandals like these on Emily of The Sweetest Thing.


Crisscross Slides



Comfort meets minimalism with a pair of crisscross sandals. Slide into this simple flat as Rowan of Red Reiding Hood did. They’re perfect for your busy summer schedule.


Lace-Up Flats



The season’s hottest footwear trend is the lace-up, pointed-toe flat like these on Arielle of Something Navy. Whether you’re headed to work, running errands, or on a date, these flats pack a serious style punch.


Tall Gladiators



The tall gladiator has been reinvented in a new way for the season. Instead of the original straight straps, try a pair of lace-up ones like these on The Blonde Salad‘s Chiara. This style looks pretty with sundresses or festival-ready coupled with a pair of cutoffs.


Espadrille Flatforms



Another spring and summer favorite is this espadrille flatform worn by Alexandra of Lovely Pepa. When you’re in need of something comfortable and dressy, espadrilles are your best bet!





If you didn’t invest in a pair of Birkenstocks last year, now is the time. This sandal style worn by Zina of Fashionvibe is back for another season. Slip on this style favorite anytime of the day for easy fashion success.





As much as we love sandals, trainers are a great way to switch it up. A chic pair of trainers is a must-have for spring and summer, but really they’re great year-round. Wear yours casually with a pair of jeans as Christine of Hello Fashion Blog does or with a dress on date night.


Thin Straps



Thin, strappy sandals, like this pair on Anabelle of VivaLuxury, are a major trend for the season. A lace-up style is the perfect mix of effortless and chic, making this the prettiest pair for a night out.


Sporty Sandals



This summer, footwear takes a sporty spin, as with these Teva sandals worn here by Cocorosas. Add an athletic look to any of your summer looks with a comfy, colorful pair like these.
