Biggest Shoe trends of summer;Air Jordan 1,Birkenstock, Studio Amelia and More

Despite living in slippers right now, we have warmer days to look forward to. Our work-from-home editors are already eyeing the biggest shoe trends of summer, and some just might surprise yopu. Prepare for the season with Nina Garcia’s favorite sandal silhouette, a fancy take on hiking sandals.

Cork Flatforms

"I have always been a fan of flatforms for the height and comfort they give me. They are always my go-to summer shoe. This season there are tons of fun options in all different textures. These Gianvito Rossi's are some of my favorites."



Beaded Sandals

"I’ve been on the Teva and Birkenstock bandwagon for years now. If being comfortable is wrong, I guess I don’t want to be right! For spring, Danish designer Cecilie Bahnsen put a pretty spin on the so-called “ugly” sandal in collaboration with Suicoke and I’ve never felt more validated."

Heeled Sandals

"I’m much more excited about the 90's fashion revival than I am about the '90s beauty revival. I love super thin straps with kitten heels because they make you look nearly barefoot—my favorite. And they’re so simple you could wear them every day without people really noticing."


Leather Sandals "I love the idea of an easy and classic summer sandal dressed up and interpreted by each of these brands. It’s a fun and understated way to add a bit of fashion to a jeans and white tee shirt moment."


Colorblocked Sandal



"I’m counting down the minutes, no seconds, until I get to wear a summer strappy heel with a sundress. Last summer I dipped my toe in the square-toe pool but this summer I’m about to go off the deep end. Right now I’m currently obsessed with these Staud multi-color double straps but am willing and ready to add a bunch more like it to my cart.

Leather Pump Pump



“Mary Janes as seen on the Prada and Maison Margiela runways are my favorite Summer shoe trend. They are so very feminine and reminiscent of many decades of fashion history. I look forward to wearing them with pencil skirts and acid wash high-waisted jeans.”

Trekky Chic Sandal

Arizone Love


"I missed the boat on Arizona Love’s bandanna-print sandals last season, so I’ll definitely be snapping these up. Their take on the REI staple gets a little more formal with pearl cluster embellishments—now I just need to save for the Simone Rocha look to go with them!"

Velvet Slippers

ViBi Venezia


"I live in my friulane all summer long. They’re the colorful slippers traditionally worn by Venetian gondoliers who years ago made them at home using repurposed fabric and recycled bicycle tires for soles (sustainable!) and they offer the perfect blend of comfort and polish. ViBi Venezia, run by two sisters from Venice, is a great source for on-trend colors and patterns (they even have a sneaker and Mary Jane version)."

Printed Wrap Sandals

Paris Texa


"These Paris Texas sandals are the solution to all of our summer shoe conundrums! There’s nothing better than a cute and comfortable sandal that can be worn with any outfit. Not only are these mules the most perfect neutral print, but the wrap ankle is the exact detail needed to step them up a notch and bring all of your summer looks to the next level!"

Red Croc Sandals

Studio Amelia


"Wrap around sandals are going to be my go to shoe this summer. They make for an easy transition from day to night! The sexy thin straps on these comfortable flat sandals from Studio Amelia make for the perfect summer shoe."

Arizona Soft Footbed Sandal



"In light of these chaotic times, I’m keeping it real simple in the footwear arena for the foreseeable future. If you see me, and I’m not in slippers, I’ll most likely be sporting functional, comfortable sandals from Birkenstock like these.  And probably with socks like I have for the past few years because why change now?

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG

Air Jordan 1


"My GOAT app is packed with sneaker "wants" but the timeless Air Jordan 1 is the sneaker I need. Sequels are never better than the original but Air Jordan has found a way to recreate its most iconic style several different ways without sacrificing its place in streetwear culture. That's why 35 years after the original was released, a day doesn't go by without you seeing the sneaker on the street or on Instagram, giving the other summer go-to sneakerNike's Air Force 1—some competition."

Floral Platform Sandals

Miu Miu


"I am super excited for floral platforms! During this strange period of isolation, I have had a lot of time to think about organizing my shoes-- all 200 of them! And I realized I do not own any floral platforms (anymore), so I can totally justify splurging on these Miu Miu's. Plus they'll look super cute with socks in the Fall!"

Square-Toe Leather Block-Heeled Loafer



"Paired with my favorite tee and miniskirt, a heeled loafer takes the 1960s to the 2020s, and eases you seamlessly from summer to fall and back again. They're as timeless as a mid-July stroll through Washington Square Park, all really is groovy."

LDWaffle sneakers

Nike x Sacai


"I love these Nike x Sacai and I can't wait to wear them. The sneaker collab market is over-saturated but these will last beyond the hype for me and will be in my wardrobe for years to come. I love the bold colors, the hyper-exaggerated soles and they'll look amazing with shorts and white socks, or linen pants and a white tee."

Audre Sandal Brother VelliesBrother Vellies


"Much like my colleagues, I am on the '90s minimal train and just can't get off. I have been especially obsessed with the thong sandal for quite some time for it's understated versatility that it can cover for various outfits. When I find a shoe I like, I love it and wear it forever. Aurora James of Brother Vellies released her nude collection named after great women who have inspired us over time. I love the Audrea Sandal in Maya as I feel this will empower me with the confidence and wisdom like Maya Angelou while pounding the pavement."
