3 Of The Best Summer Shoe Trends We'll Still Be Wearing In Autumn
From influencer-approved ballet pumps to the return of chunky sandals, these new season arrivals from FitFlop are a fast track to happy feet.
As summer proves to be a late comer this year, our floaty florals + sunny shorts + cute top combinations are here to stay for a little longer than usual - and in even better news, it also means our sandals have a longer expiration date! As we head into the middle of the hot season, it’s still not too late to get investing in a seasonal shoe that will take you through summer and, if you choose correctly, into the autumn months too. Blending comfort, style and current trends, we'll be investing in versatile flats such as ballet pumps and chunky sandals that will make just as much sense now as they will later.
Whilst flip flops and pumps seem like shoes you can buy at any old retailer on the cheap, such sandal trends require a certain level of comfort to feel sustainable for long hours of wear, whether it be to work or for your everyday looks. That's why we'll be marching our feet straight into FitFlop, the shoe brand that’s long been recognised for their ultra comfortable foam-technology soles. Whilst comfort remains to be their absolute priority, style has not been ignored, and this iconic footwear brand is all about transforming those painful shoe trends into fashion looks you can wear with total ease, all day long.
With the return of the dad sandal to the recent runways and now fashion feeds everywhere, and sweet ballet pumps and thong-toe trends also gaining a lot of attention, FitFlop’s new-season collection really has it all. And as the year of the sandal trends continues to build strength, these are the top picks you won’t want to miss out on this summer.
The Modern Ballerinas
The new summer shoe trend to flood our feeds this season, ballet pumps are back - and they have had a modern twist. Ultra minimal in chic and versatile block colour shades, we're loving the classic black and muted beige designs with an oversized white shirt and boxy black culottes for a summer workwear feel.
The biggest sandal trend right now is showing no signs of slowing down. Influencers love the chunky dad sandal, and so will you after having a look at these piping-hot pieces. Wear bare whilst the sun is burning high in the sky, and take a few styling tips from the recent designer runways for autumn by wearing with ankle-length socks. So wrong, it's officially right.
Flip Flop Shoes
Who doesn’t love a flip flop? The shoe essential for beach holidays and quick trips down to the shop has had a serious glow-up, and can be worn for any occasion this season – yes, even to work! The thicker-than-usual, elevated sole prevents this style from feeling too lightweight for when autumn rolls around, so whilst it works perfectly with a mini dress in the height of summer, it looks just cool as cool with boyfriend denim a little later.
