Tired of wearing flip flops for days on end? You aren't alone. The good news is your summer shoe wardrobe can have more variety than you think. Sure, the Fall/Winter seasons offer a wider array of styles — thigh-high, ankle, snow and rain boots, to name a few — but warm-weather footwear can be just as diverse.
There are plenty of shoe options available to wear during scorching temperatures, including but not limited to: mules, flip flop heels (yes, those are a thing), slides, backless loafers, Birkenstocks, and the list goes on. And the occasional outdoor outing may even call for sneakers and closed-toe pumps, like a trip to the office or a run through your neighborhood.
But for all that style variety, there's one common thread linking this season's most classic styles: the comfortability factor. Slide sandals are everywhere, kitten heels are considered totally chic now, and sneakers are being styled with dresses without a second thought.
Even the historically painful shoes in everyone's closet — like pumps and stilettos — are now designed with padding to comfort the balls of your feet.
The result? A shoe collection that you'll love to wear again and again, whether you're outdoor dining in a dress with slides, or dressing up for a socially-distanced wedding in a pair of nude pumps.
Ahead, find the 10 shoe styles everyone should have in their summer wardrobe.
