While summer weather may be a bit touch-and-go on the West Coast, that hasn’t stopped us from browsing for new footwear to add to our collection. Whether you’re looking to keep things breezy or hoping to show off a fresh pedi, here are some of our fave shoes for every sunny day stride. —Vicki Duong
native shoes. One of our go-tos to getting everyone in the family outfitted for any occasion, Native Shoes’ Frankie Sugarlite (starts at $52, available for both adults and kids) is a must have. Featuring a classic double-strap and a variety of classic and fun colours, the sole is innovative technology featuring a sugarcane-derived sole that is lightweight, eco-friendly and easy to wash.
aldo shoes. Ideal for office attire when you need to keep your toes covered but still looking to keep your footwear a bit more open these Aldo Shoes’ slingbacks ($75) add a sophisticated touch to your next #ootd . Plus, the pair features Pillow Walk, an Aldo exclusive design with moulded foam and padded insoles for added comfort.
poppy barley. A modern take on a classic, the Fisherman Sandal ($235) from Poppy Barley is a timeless choice for any outfit. We love the cushioned footbed and adjustable buckle strap that ensures a comfortable fit, while a bit of extra coverage is ideal for days when you’re due for a pedicure.
maguire shoes. Elevate your footwear, literally, with a pair of heeled sandals that not only add a bit of height to your look, but an extra oomph. The Riva Heeled Sandals ($190) from Maguire Shoes has become one of our absolute faves for any occasion. The moderate heel makes it ideal for all-day wear while the signature wavy straps are sure to collect compliments.
vans. Whether we’re looking to zip out quickly to walk the dog, or just need a comfy slip-on-and-go option, there’s no denying that Vans are synonymous with classic and easy to wear styles. While we’ve always been fans of the Vans Slip-On ($100), their latest collection has us jumping with joy. The groovy retro-inspired fit features a grinning daisy print that has us fulfilling our Y2K fantasy.
