SUMMER SHOES & SANDALS

Our round-up of the best women’s footwear for warm weather, from head-turning sneakers and ballet pumps to sandals and flip-flops

The comfy-yet-cool slider sandals

Chunky buckled sandals fuse style with practicality, making them the ideal choice for everyday wear. Beloved by minimalists and street stylers alike, a pair of simple sliders with a deeply moulded or flatform sole and wide adjustable straps will work with everything from floaty smock dresses to utility rompers. Earthy tones complement tonal looks while bright colours will instantly lift your mood, even with no jet-setting vacation in sight. And, thanks to the luxe loungewear trend, ‘socks and sandals’ is also chic way to elevate casual outfits at home – wear with a matching lounge set for a considered off-duty look.


The wear-with-everything white sneakers

Women’s sneakers have become something of a sartorial sensation in recent seasons, acting as the perfect dressed-down antidote to maximalist floral dresses or statement-making pants. A simple pair of white tennis shoes or plimsolls also looks great with this season’s coolest jeans and a T-shirt, making them a truly versatile addition to your year-round closet. Our sneakers come in a variety of styles, from leather to vegan-friendly, and feature patented Insolia Flex technology for a stable, balanced and comfy walking surface all day long.


The do-it-all strappy sandals

Whether you go for black, tan, white or metallic, a pair of strappy sandals will be your summer staple. Pair with a satin midi skirt for work, wide-leg jeans at the weekend or your favourite summer dresses for sun-drenched afternoons with the family. Gladiator sandals or lace-up sandals with ankle ties are an easy way to add interest to an otherwise understated look, while ticking off this season’s trends. We also love a pair of sandals with a flatform sole for effortlessly upping the style stakes.


The chic summer-ready shoes

Offering more coverage than sandals without the hot-weather woes of boots, a stylish pair of flats will be your saviour when paired with wide-leg pants or this season’s must-have shorts. A fuss-free choice on run-around days, a pretty pair of ballet pumps or sophisticated loafers will complement smarter looks for meetings or lunch appointments, without compromising on comfort, thanks to Insolia Flex technology. Take your pick from a wide variety of colours and designs from our extensive summer range. After all, smart new shoes signal the start of new beginnings and make a welcome change to the slippers we’ve been wearing 24/7 this past year.


The on-trend sneakers

Got your white sneakers sorted? It’s time to up your game with standout styles ranging including our favourite animal-print sneakers. Keep your outfit simple with these head-turning footwear designs – a pair of relaxed-fit balloon jeans or a denim midi skirt will complement the shoes without contending for the limelight. Putting on a pair of brightly coloured or patterned sneakers is a brilliant way to amp up your morning routine, whether you’re running errands, walking the dogs or taking the kids to school. And it goes without saying that a showstopping pair of cool kicks has the power to start a conversation in the queue for the post office and turn heads in the street on grey days. Happy feet, indeed.
