Best shoes for Summer

I wanted to highlight the best shoes for summer. As lock down eases, we are all looking forward to the warmer months more than ever. We will value memory-making and know how vital it is to spend time with friends and family. When we are having fun times, it is great to find exactly the right pair of shoes for different activities and times of day.

Gold loafers

Daniel Footwear is an independent retailer with over 20 stores in the UK, plus an award winning e commerce store. Within the boutique stores and online, you will find an extensive collection of designer shoes, bags and accessories which are of high quality, on trend and at competitive prices. The unique Daniel brand, released in 1993 sits neatly alongside designer offerings from the likes of DKNY, Ash, UGG, Tory Burch, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood and many more. I have wanted to have some metallic shoes for ages and these gold loafers are delightfully over the top and perfect for a night out. I found the sizing to be a little generous so do bear that in mind when ordering. The arrived in great packaging. If these ones are not quite to your taste, they do have other gold loafers available. These shoes are not for tight budgets but the quality is striking so well worth making the investment if you can.

Tan boots

Calla Shoes is a UK based footwear brand creating stylish shoes for women with bunions or anyone seeking comfort. The founder, Jennifer Bailey, set up the company a few years back out of her own frustrations at not being able to find pretty shoes which were also comfortable on her bunions. She did this whilst pregnant with her second child and in a redundancy situation!
Calla have many styles of shoes, including flats, boots, heels and sandals, and all of their shoes are specially designed to conceal and comfort bunions whilst also looking stylish. So many women suffer with bunions, and lots of them who have found these shoes have said its life changing – they no longer have to wear ugly shoes or be in pain if they have a special occasion. Calla want all women to know that style and comfort don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
I always love to wear boots whatever the time of year and love these classic tan leather ankle boots. Carefully handcrafted in small factories in Portugal out of luxuriously soft materials, the Calla Chelsea boot has many features which make them particularly comfortable to wear. These features include cushioned and arch supported insoles, a hidden stretch panel in the toe area, a non slip sole and high quality, flexible leather uppers.  Timeless elegance if you ask me. They are also comfortable and easy to walk in.  These are the type of boot that give me confidence as they look great but are not too high. They were true to size in my opinion. The packaging was great.

Espadrilles and pumps

On hot days you might want to wear lighter shoes. I find George at Asda has a good range at super affordable prices. One thing I would say is that I think you really need to check the sizes carefully. I find George shoes for me need to be ordered in a size smaller than my usual 7.

Another great sources of shoes that we can easily forget about is Accessorize. I recently bought a pair of snakeskin ones which are comfortable and fun. Sizing was OK and packaging was perfect.

At the moment most of these sites have great sales and offers so well worth a look if you want to grab yourself a bargain.

    Ohh! I do love those boots. They sound so comfortable too.
    I love George for their ballet pumps. It’s funny you say about checking their sizes. I am usually a size 7 and have to go down into a 6 for their ballet pumps but for their boots I have to go up a size. lol
    I’ve actually just bought myself a pair of sandals off Ebay for about £6. They are new one’s not 2nd hand. I can’t wait to get them and try them out. x

    I got a pair of gold heels just before lockdown – they’re so crazy. I haven’t worn them yet. Hopefully party season starts up soon (we’re only allowed 5 over so very, very small parties for now!) – I’ll be honest, I’m thongs and birkenstocks in summer. #StayClassyMama

    I do love those gold loafers. I might treat myself to a pair when I finally go back to school. I don’t know how I’m actually going to wear a proper pair of shoes when I’ve just been wearing flip flops and slippers. #StayClassyMama

    Oh I don’t need much of an excuse to buy some new shoes! I am wearing my Converse pumps a lot lately. This bird loves her comforts! x
