Apart from the crazy summer partying, luxurious vacations and hot summer romances, another reason to get super excited about the upcoming months is summer fashion. Shoewear has always been big regardless of season, and this time around, shoe collections are a true statement to that ongoing thrill.  
If you are a committed fashionista (which we know you are), you are going to love these new summer footwear trends. 

Western booth drama

Western vibes are definitely having a comeback and they’re coming in the shape of knee-high or ankle boots. Often made of high quality leather, they’ll feel good on the skin even when the temperatures are super high. Expect a lot of embroidery and surprises like western motifs combined with knits, lace and floral patterns.
Stripe obsessions

We’ve loved the classic pump for oh-so-long but it seems the time has come to take things to a whole different level. This summer, expect the ordinary pump to be upgraded with stripe prints, intricate details and color combinations we haven’t been wearing before. Same as gladiators, these shoes are going to be preferred with a small heel but high heeled variants may become an option, too. You are going to love them, anyhow – no doubt there.
Art overload

Well, if you’ve been longing to find a way to channel your favorite art pieces and work them into your daily wardrobe, we’ve got some great news – this summer you’re going to be able to do just that! The craziest possible prints, the super weird motifs, the unexpected patterns and colors intertwined… it’s all there and it’s looking so hideous that it’s absolutely adorable!
Boho inspirations

No season can go without boho obsessions, and we’re completely fine with that. The romance and subtlety of boho shoes that will dominate the streets this summer will be perfect for all the dreamy girls out there looking to express their fashion sense through pieces that don’t scream edge. This time around, a combination of a lot of lace, fringe, feathers and florals will mark the boho excitement.

Block-heel mule

Suede is going to be huge this summer, and the block-heel? Well, let’s just say we’ve been feeling that ‘90s nostalgia all-around. Still not sure if we’re loving it or hating it but we know we’ll be wearing it.

Aaaand the ‘90s strike again! There’s a tingling curiosity about this ‘90s obsession we’re trying to figure out still, but it’s evident we’ll be embracing it no matter how weird we might feel about it. Honestly speaking, we kind of do love all ways that the trashy ‘90s look pairs up with the chic modern cuts, and we’re drawing particular satisfaction from it. 
Going clear

One word – breathtaking! The ‘clear’ trend supporting everything from the clear heel to the all-clear booth/shoe is everything you’ll need to let your inner Cinderella loose. Although – Cinderella wearing these clear shoes is definitely staying past midnight!   
The upcoming summer is all about letting your creativity breathe and enjoying the wild, crazy shoe styles – so be sure you make the best of it!
