We tend to think of summer as “sandal season,” and may look forward to the feeling of sun on our toes. But for those who either need or prefer a closed-toe alternative to sandals, here are a few suggestions for summer shoes (that won’t make your feet swelter).
Above: these raffia oxfords are comfortable even on the warmest days.
Good air flow will help keep your feet cooler. If you want or need a full-coverage shoe, keep an eye out for styles in woven or perforated leather. I really like the look of these loafers!
These woven leather pumps would work equally well with a dress or jeans.
This style is offered in several colors, and is well-reviewed for comfort.
Commenter Ann mentioned this style (Ilse Jacobsen). They’re really cute and budget-friendly, and offered in several colors. Well-reviewed too!
I just love the cork-look finish on these!
These are fun and sporty! (Also available in black).
These crochet sneakers are offered in four colors, but I think the red is such fun! (And they’re currently 40% off!)
I love shoes with a metallic finish, and find them so versatile!
Espadrilles are a classic and comfortable choice. This style is available in several colors, and gets rave reviews!
Here’s one with a lower heel, and in a fun rainbow stripe.
This cool Shibori print puts a modern spin on a classic style.
Ballet flats are making a comeback. Here’s a pair that actually has some arch support! More colors available.
