Shoes you need this Summer

With a new year comes a new set of wardrobe must-haves. Specifically, new shoe essentials. To ensure your footwear is looking fresh in 2017, we’re sharing the top five styles to invest in now and wear all year long...

Barely-there Heels 

They were a wardrobe essential last year, and they're going to be a wardrobe essential this year. They're super sexy, easy to wear with everything and you can wear them in all seasons. If you struggle to walk in them, you can try a more block heeled strappy sandal, for extra support. To mix it up, go for some more electric colours this year, like corals and blues. Oh - and clash you toe colour for a super on-trend look. 

Kitten Heels

Whatever your feelings on kitten heels, they are back, so you may as well embrace them. Seen in various styles throughout shops they have firmly taken their place in footwear for spring/summer 2017. The long established problem with kitten heels is their old fashioned reputation. Often associated with women strictly 60 plus donning a pair, and designed as a training shoe in the 50’s for women who couldn’t quite master the art of walking in heels, kitten heels have never quite had the appreciation they deserve, until now. Fashion has finally got functional and we couldn’t be happier.


Trainers are still very much in, as another year passes another it sneaker appears. This year? Replace your stan smiths or superstars with the ‘new’ throwback style, make way for the Nike Cortez. The clean sharp lines and versatility will be just as loved as the previous go ‘it’ sneaks were. Sports luxe is huge at the moment - who needs heels?

Flatform Sandals 

Want a little night, but can't bare heeling it up all day? A flatform sandal could be exactly what you need to give you a little boost in height, but also to stay comfy and bang on trend. There are loads of varieties out there at the moment. Check out some super cool metallic styles or pom pom flatforms to really stand out.
