As always, sandals are summer favourites. This year they come in a variety of styles and colors, from sporty and fun to chic and sophisticated. Flip-flops are popular again and can make a cool change from the traditional sandal, unless, of course, you are the sporty type, in which case a breezy pair of comfortable hiking sandals would be just the thing.
Men shouldn’t shy away from footwear trends this season. There is an assortment of sophisticated sandals available for all of you guys out there. The Sob sandals are a great addition to the summer shoe line-up. They’re cool and comfortable, for even the most active men. Another popular sandal is the Lagoon sandal, which comes in a wide variety of trendy colors, like blues and greens.
The summer is also the time for formal occasions, like graduations and weddings. There are plenty of different fashions out there, from simple and elegant flats to breath-taking stilettos. Like the casual shoes and the costume jewellery this season, formal footwear are also adorned with chunky beads and sequins, certain to make those hot summer formals sparkle and sizzle.
With so many different styles and colors of summer shoes to choose from, the hardest decision might just be where to store them all!
