Luxury Shoes That Are Perfect for Summer

Chances are you will spend at least some of this summer barefoot by the pool or at the beach. When you aren’t walking with your toes in the sand, you need some gorgeous footwear to set off your summer fashions.  These luxury shoes are perfect for summer activities, from day to night.

Platform Sandals

Of course summer is the perfect time to wear all of your favorite sandals.  Elevate your sandal game, literally, by adding a few platform sandals into the rotation.  Platforms are back in fashion again, both in flat platforms and wedge platforms styles.  They are a great way to add length to your legs when you are wearing shorts or a summer skirt.

Iridescent jacquards and contrasting colors continue to speak to the inspiration of the collection. The straps of these crossover sandals feature a geometric G pattern in velvet against a metallic silver ground. Set on a striped black and white platform.

Sneakers

Whether you are running errands around town or taking the sights on vacation, sneakers are your best from on an active summer day.  Plenty of fashion designers have produced stylish sneakers that will add to your outfit, not detract.

Rhyton Glitter Leather Sneaker – Gucci ($1,100)

Designed with a thick sole and bulky construction, the leather sneaker is remindful of the old school hip-hop scene and embodies the 90s influence pervading the Pre-Fall 2018 collection. Inspired by the tags decorating retro athletic uniforms, the glitter Gucci game motif enhances the side of the shoe.

Wedges & Espadrilles

We love a feminine wedge in the Spring and Summer.  The added texture on the wedge heel reminds us of days on the beach.  Match up a pair of espadrilles with a breezy summer dress.

Strappy Sandals

For a dressier look, strappy sandals should be your summer go-to.  We especially love cage sandals or high wrap sandals because they add drama to a simple dress.  Colorful sandals set off a summer look, but you will get more mileage from neutral brown leather.

 Slides & Mules

Finally, a pair of well-made slides are perhaps the easiest finishing touch to your summer look.  Wear them with a pair of cropped trousers to look polished and professional.
