Best shoes for spring and summer 2022
Jessica Simpson Apartment Carmie
A playful apartment is ideal for returning to the office or for having brunch with friends. This one has a pointed toe that will visually elongate your legs, and the bright red color is a bold touch that will look great with jeans. Unlike other mule-style shoes, this one has an ankle strap to keep you from slipping with every step.
Aerosoles Rufina Sandal
Cork and raffia combine to make this the ultimate beach-inspired shoe. The shorter heel adds height without being impossible to walk on, and the insoles are made with a memory foam footbed that makes them even more comfortable. We love this pair which has a hint of pink on the strap, but they also come in a natural colourway.
Clarks Giselle Beach Sandal
Think of them as your new evening shoes. Wedge heels look like an homage to the 60s and 70s, but modern leather straps bring them to 2022. A crisp white color will also go with everything. Also, how amazing is the cushion on these? Despite the higher heel, you might find them more comfortable than your favorite ballet flats!
Nisolo Ama braided mule
It’s time to ditch your favorite slip-on sandals and step up to this woven leather pair. They’re made from gorgeous cognac-colored leather that’s soft, yet structured, and they also have a buttery-soft leather lining. Perhaps the best part? They are sustainably made by artisans who are paid (and guaranteed) a living wage.
HOFF Hela Color Block Low Top Trainers
Sneakers are among the most versatile shoes. They’re comfortable for long days on your feet, can add a splash of color to any outfit, and can be worn all year round. These from Hoff are a great way to incorporate neon into your wardrobe without feeling overwhelmed by the color, and they’re even on sale right now.
OOFOS OOMG Eezee Low Shoe
No laces, no problems. These slip-on shoes are anything but nurses’ shoes. They are made from a super stretchy woven material that molds to the shape of your feet while keeping your foot securely inside the shoe. The plush sole feels like walking on clouds and absorbs 37% more impact than regular shoes.
Allbirds Tree Breezers
Flexible flats are amazing for all kinds of occasions, and they’re one of the easiest shoes to throw in a bag or suitcase. These from Allbirds are made from durable eucalyptus fibers and can be tossed in the washing machine when they need a refresh.
Columbia Newton Ridge Plus Hiking Boot
If you plan on hitting the trails this spring and summer, you might as well upgrade your hiking boots. Columbia is known for its reliable hiking boots and shoes, and these are pairs you’ll be able to wear for years. They have a waterproof outer layer, so you can ride through streams and spring showers, and the teal color is a fun take on a normally brown shoe.
Lululemon Blissfeel Running Shoe
Lululemon just branched out into their shoes, and we couldn’t be more excited. These runners were specifically designed for women, taking into account the unique way our feet flex and move while hitting the pavement. They come in six different colors, but they’re so popular they keep selling out. Currently only a few colors are still available in most sizes, but we love the summery feel of the pair of black and electric lemon.
Hoka Arahi 6
For a more colorful running shoe, these Hoka Arahi 6s are a practical yet exciting option. Dusty blue and orange are a contrasting color combo that screams spring and summer. Plus, they’re great for long walks or jogs, as they provide a ton of cushioning with every step.
Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Twist Sandal
A flat sandal is so versatile in warm weather, and the metallic accents on this one set it apart from other solid styles. Kelsi Dagger creates incredibly comfortable sandals that have a soft, plush sole without looking like grandma’s shoes. The bronze metallic twist on these is a gorgeous detail that doesn’t sacrifice comfort at all.
