5 Must-Have Shoe Trends For Summer | Buckle

Next to denim, there isn’t anything we could love more about fashion than shoes.

Each season, we can’t help but stock up on all the latest trends and styles. After all, life’s just too short to wear boring shoes!

Through all the colors, prints, and styles, we’ve gathered up our top picks, and are bringing you the shoes of summer!


This first must-have trend is giving summertime staples new life. Vibrant colors are popping on espadrille wedges and block heels – giving your outfit that wow factor.


Right in line with bold and bright colors are standout prints and patterns. You’ll find prints like cheetah, floral, and stripes on everything from classic styles like block heels and slip-on sneakers to of-the-moment trends like flatform sandals.

Speaking of flatform sandals… This shoe trend has taken on many different forms – from jute rope espadrille bottoms, to thick white rubber lug soles with an athletic-look, to cork soles – we’re loving them all. Not only is this trend available in so many different style options, it’s also at all price points.


You may get a taste of this trend from your flatform sandals, but these next styles are the real deal – capable of all-day wear during a hike in the mountains or sightseeing jaunt around the city. While very practical for those on-the-go, these sandals are trending as casual wear as well. Consider these styles, fashion with function. Your go-to brands for this trend are Sorel and Teva – but Dr. Martens, Timberland, and Diba True are also serving up a healthy dose of options.

Rounding out the list, is streetwear sneakers, aka designer sneakers. All of these slip-on sneakers are made from labels we love, and high quality materials like genuine leather. The common theme of this trend is a sleek design and a neutral color, combining to make styles that could work with high fashion in the streets of New York.

Now that you’re set with the 5 must-have shoe trends for summer, you can put your best foot forward!
