EDIT: Alternative Summer Shoes
Share This Article:
We all love our birkenstocks and our flip-flops, but some occasions call for something with a little more substance. Whether you're looking for breathable shoes for work, comfort during the endless sightseeing on your holiday, or just something a bit different, here are some shoes perfectly designed for summer, that aren't sandals: 1) Nike MD Runner 2, £59.95 Designed for running, these trainers are perfect for those of you working on your feet all day. Featuring great breathability and comfortable sole, the black colour makes these a subtle addition to an outfit and widley accepted in most workplaces. 2) New Look Navy Suedette Bar Front Loafers, £19.99 Another shoe ideal for work, this particular design of loafers is smart and elegant, as well as being versatile enough to go well with most outfits. These shoes can be worn with socks, tights or bare footed, making them great for all kinds of weather, but particularly the summer. They are cool, while still keeping your toes hidden - if that's what sends your boss reeling. 3) TOMS Aqua Glass Heritage Canvas Women's Classics, £38 If there's one brand famous for creating comfy summer shoes, Toms is it. These sweet little canvas shoes come in a plethora of colours and patterns for you to choose from (including some newly added vegan options). The brand is proud of its European heritage, making it an essential addition to European holiday packing. 4) Topshop Sister Sock Boots, £25 in the sale Boots are not top of our lists when we think about creating a summer outfit. However, some occaisions (such as summer weddings) require something a little more substantial on your feet. This pair have a peep toe and cutouts around the ankle, making them breathable, as well as incredibly feminine . The sock fitting hugs the shape of your foot in a material that is a little thinner than the usual faux leather fabric used on high-street ankle boots. A great summer buy. 5) Dorothy Perkins Grey Microfiber 'Pandora' Pumps, £12
