I’ll be covering everything from pedicures to platform soles and may even drop some of the biggest names in fashion. These shoe styles will leave you breathless. You might even find your sole-mate!

1: Pedicures

HOTTEST shoes for Summer

You can’t be seen in this year’s trendiest summer shoes if your feet don’t look their very best! Everyone knows that a nice, neat manicure is just a part of good grooming. Don’t forget your feet! For a longer wearing pedicure, did you know you can get shellac polish on your toes? Shellac lasts for up to two weeks and sometimes longer with no chips, cracks or breaks!

2: Leather Without the Lace

HOTTEST shoes for Summer

You can never go wrong with a classic leather pump! Maybe even try strapping on some toeless, strappy and, dare I say STUDDED, little numbers for some real WOW factor for your feet! Such beauties will never fail make your feet the center of attention. Bright red polish on your toes would really make this look complete.

3: Get Ugly

No really, hear me out! Ugly shoes are really and truly a trend this spring/summer season! Practicality’s the name of the game here, folks. Did you know Birkenstocks can be sexy AND sporty? Well, you do now! Or, at least, you know that they’re trying to make it a thing now. How about some gladiator sports shoes? No? Oh come on; why not give it a shot!

4: Gladiator Sandals

HOTTEST shoes for Summer

Gladiator sandals in summer are ALWAYS a show stealer for sure! One nice thing about these shoes is that you can keep it simple with some regular ankle numbers or – if you want to make a statement – you can go all out with a pair of leather knee high sandals, I kid you not. One thing’s for certain, with these shoes, all you need is a toga and a tan and you’ll be ushered down the red carpet to the VIP section in no time!

5: Orange is the New Black

HOTTEST shoes for Summer

Sling back sandals are always chic, but how about trying them out in a bright coral or orange for that real show stopping wow factor? Orange leather is the perfect complement to a summer tan. Keep the heel just the right height to flatter your legs but still be comfortable enough to walk, mingle and dance in. A French tip toe would look absolutely stunning to finish it off.

6: Hawaiian Print

HOTTEST shoes for Summer

Why settle for block color when you can go full on Hawaiian with your footwear? The fun print would go perfectly with a short summer sun dress, or to be really daring, wear them with a white suit pant to the office! You know the rebel in you wants to! It would be like wearing a tropical vacation on your feet!

7: Crystal Embellished Shoe: Wedding or Disco?

HOTTEST shoes for Summer

Whether you are a blushing bride or just want to bling it up on the dance floor, crystal embellished heels are just the thing you need! Try go for nude colored leather as it will make the construction of the shoe nearly disappear on your foot, making the crystal embellishments the focal point of your gorgeous feet. Do a nude polish or French tip pedicure with these beauties.
