Sexy Summer Shoes: From Sandals to Slingbacks [PHOTOS]
Summer fashion is all about bright colors, popping prints, and comfort. Our picks for the hottest shoes of the summer feature all three. The best summer shoe is one you can wear for some fun in the sun and for a night on the town. Here’s what we like about these.
The best part about these flats is that they are low-maintenance and comfortable enough to be worn for a day at the beach, but unique and bright enough to continue wearing when you go out at night. You might not think of your beach sandals as adequate for a dinner date, but these neon brights from Ammos and Steve Madden, and the strappy blue flats (also from Steve Madden), will stand-out as much as any sexy heel.
With wedges you get all the lift of a high heel, but with extra support so you don’t go tumbling on the boardwalk. They can have both minimal detail like the bright green Easton Suede Mules from Michael Kors or come in crazy disco colors like the ones from Giuseppe Zanotti. These shoes are also easy to take care of. It’s as simple as wiping off that sand from the beach and slipping them back on again for an evening out.
Slingbacks are easy shoes for any girl on the go. Many of our shoe selections feature the slingback strap. The appeal of showing off the back of your heal isn’t limited to guys with a foot fetish. It’s always hot to show a little bit of skin, even if it is just the back of your foot. Admit it, you love the feel of that slinky strap. Not to mention these shoes can easily slip off if you decide to take a romantic walk along the water.
Ok, we admit that pumps aren’t exactly the easiest shoe to wear while walking on the sand, but what girl doesn’t need a good pair of pumps for a special occasion? What makes these shoes work is their coloring. Instead of boring, dark winter colors, these pumps mimic the colors of the ocean, the sand, the sun, and the flora that pops out when the weather is nice. So go on and get yourself some new summer shoes. You deserve it.
