10 Summer Shoe Trends That Offer a Sunny Twist on Go-To Silhouettes

We’re finally on the cusp of summer, and although I’m counting down to its sunny days, I’m most looking forward to the fashion that comes along with warm weather. It’s finally time to put away the shearling slides and heavy boots (until next season, of course) and swap in something a little more easy-breezy. This summer’s shoe trends are not about reinventing the wheel, but more so playing on existing styles: The beloved flat got a minimalistic facelift, sneakers are taking on fun colors and silhouettes, and summer’s go-to flip-flops are back with updated silhouettes. Whether you’re looking to add a new sandal to your wardrobe or interested in learning what styles are on the rise, we have you covered. Keep scrolling to discover the 10 best summer shoe trends of 2024, complete with product picks to shop.

Thong Sandals

Simplicity is key to a functional wardrobe, and thong sandals add a stylish, minimalistic touch to any outfit. Whether you’re styling classic flip-flops with a coverup for the pool or heading out in jeans, a tee, and thong kitten heels, these sandals will be at the forefront of summer fashion.


Understated Glove Flats

A favorite among stylists and editors, the glove flat gained traction when the Row debuted its iconic take on ballet slippers. The understated style works for any season and is the perfect comfortable flat to wear with your favorite linen trousers and sleeveless blouse.


White Out

White for summer? Groundbreaking. White shoes can take any look to the next level, so opt for mules or kitten heels for a sophisticated yet forward-thinking ensemble. I love pairing a white pair of shoes with colorful pants and a top to really make the shoe pop.


Slingback Sandals

Slingback heels will never go out of style, but this season, we’re seeing more slingback sandals than years past. Spotted on celebrities and influencers alike, a slingback sandal adds a touch of glam to an everyday look.


Mary Janes

Mary Janes have been around for a long time, but their current resurgence is strong enough to earn them a spot yet again on our shoe trends list. The style is easy to dress up or down, and brands have been reimagining it for 2024 with updated textures, colors, and silhouettes.


Mesh Materials

By now, you’re most likely familiar with this season’s most coveted shoe trend: the mesh ballet flat. But mesh isn’t just making an appearance in flat shoes, as there has been a slow and steady rise of brands and designers incorporating the material into sandals, heels, sneakers, and more. If you haven’t fully committed to the ballet flats trend, opt for mesh wedge sandals instead.


Court Sneakers

Tenniscore is currently all over as fans obsess over Challengers, and the trend’s take on sneakers is bringing elegance and versatility to a classic shoe. A sleek, somewhat retro style is great for both on and off the court, so stay on trend by pairing a crisp pair of white tennis sneakers with a monochromatic blazer and trouser set.


Ring Sandals

Move over anklets, we’ve found a new favorite summer accessory: ring sandals, which we think of as jewelry for your feet. This elegant trend features hues of gold and silver hardware that can dress up even the simplest of looks. Pair these sandals with your favorite linen shorts, or style them with a sundress for a quintessential summer look.


Vacation Raffia

Raffia is at the forefront of summer’s warm-weather accessory necessities. We love a raffia beach bag, but it’s time to take it one step further with vacation-inspired shoes. The natural fiber pairs well with virtually anything, taking you from beachside to brunch seamlessly.


Fisherman Fashion

Fisherman sandals have kept their appeal through the years due to their comfortable and wearable nature. The chunky caged sandal pairs beautifully with a flowing, tailored dress to add a delicate, unexpected touch to the rugged shoe. Opt for a flat style of sandals for everyday wear, or invest in a caged heel for a dressier option.
