SHOEologie: 5 Shoe Trends for the Summer


The sun is shining. It’s warm outside. The weather is perfect to have your toes out in some sandals, but you can’t just have on any regular sandals this season. Introducing, the sandal bootie. GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI DESIGN created this Fuschia goatskin thong sandal bootie to add a creative flair to their design, but for $755 you might as well go around barefoot. Get the look for less with these CHINESE LAUNDRY SUDOKU SANDALS for $69 and keep your pockets full.


Spring and summer are all about color and making a statement. Why not make a statement with your footwork? Jada Pinkett Smith recently did on the Oprah show in some fantastic FENDI numbers. (No longer available.) Recently, British Harper’s Bazaar featured the KHLOE SCARF SANDAL by UGG Australia. It’s like a regular sandal except with a fancier dress. The UGG version will cost you about $120, but you can get the look with GAP’S FLORAL T-STRAP SANDAL for only $30.


The PRADA NEW PRINT COLLECTION draws inspiration from a single 1950’s outfit with splashes of retro fabrics. Each of the designs has a fabric reference from Prada’s archives. At $746 you might want to ensure that they, like their print, will be around for a long time. Get the look for less with the STEVE MADDEN KAPPY FLATS for only $32.


Want a way to dress up a simple outfit without going over the top? Sparkly pumps are great statement shoes. The CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN TITI PUMP in turquoise mini glitter is a girly girl’s dream. For $725, you might only be able to afford to wear them with some simple jeans and a white tee. Out of your league? Get the look for less with the GUESS CARRIELEE PUMP in pink for $56.


Pumps, platforms, and heels are getting higher and higher every season. For the next two seasons, the look is being reinvented with a stacked heel. Take note from MIU MIU and their stacked heel…which can be yours for $690. Get the look for less with the HARAJUKU LOVERS KANDICE PLATFORM for $99. With an array of designs and a sky high heel, this look is a shoe lover’s must have.
