The best chunky soles
Designers across the board have jumped on the heavy-sole bandwagon this season, and we have a diverse selection to choose from as a result: Valentino, Gucci and Miu Miu are just a few names who have bulked up for summer. For the ultimate style-meets-comfort combination, try Prada’s canvas trekking sandals, while Gianvito Rossi’s boho suede platforms make the perfect accompaniment to a floaty dress.
The best sneakers
The best strappy sandals
The naked sandal is your new shoe for every and all after-dark occasions. With pants or skirts, tailored shorts or slip dresses, there is almost nothing these strappy little numbers won’t work wonders with. The Row’s barely-there ‘Bare’ pair is a real any-time, any-place option.
The best safari-style shoes
As we predicted last season, animal print has become the new neutral. So much so that we’ve got myriad species to choose between, from sneakers to sandals and boots to pumps. Look to Jennifer Chamandi for zebra-print pumps, Golden Goose for leopard-detailed sneakers and Isabel Marant for snake-effect boots.
