Don’t Mind If I Shoe!
Everything’s coming up stylish
By Carmen D. Hrynchuk
Oh, summer. How we wait for you and your effortless style. Your boho tops, your swingy skirts, your cut-off jeans. But bare shoulders and flowy silhouettes won’t be getting all the attention this year. They’ve got shoes to contend with! And thanks to this year’s epic selection, there’s a perfect style for everyone. From denim and embroidery to zippers and block heels, the shoe gods have left no trend unturned.
The only minor hiccup? Getting them before they’re gone. Summer’s waiting. Walk tall.

Embroidery is back and better than ever. From tiny embellishments to full-throttle fabulous, there’s a just-right moment for everyone. As for these statement boots, they go for it. So should you.

Been wanting to try the white-shoe trend but are worried about the maintenance? Leather’s the answer. These mules are particularly low upkeep thanks to their wooden wedge heel that’s just high enough to keep grass stains at bay.

Block heels can go where no stiletto can—the lawn. If you’ve ever spent a summer wedding aerating the grass, you’ll know what we mean. These peep-toe beauties combine three trends in one—denim, block heels and graphic details.

What’s not to love about a zipper detail? Besides the comfort they allow when breaking them in, there’s the ease of taking them off, the seduction of zipping them up—and did we mention they’re cute?

LifeStride Listed Woven Espadrille Wedge, from Hudson’s Bay, $90
Espadrilles are a summer staple that can sometimes feel cookie-cutter. Not these. The pop of floral adds a playful elegance that makes these comfy wedges the perfect option for dressing up or down.
