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 (more sizes of this style available here) 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!
