I've been seeing so many pairs of shoes that I've just been dying to have for the summer and I wanted to share them with you and maybe give you some cute alternatives you might not have thought of. Here's five pairs that I think would be perfect for summer and keeping you cool and kewl while wearing them.
So here is the first pair I want to show you all and as soon as I seen them I fell in love with them! I am a huge fan of wedges and find that they're the most comfortable shoe to wear for me. These shoes are black velvet with a peep toe, they have roses embroidered all over them, on top of that there is also the word "Freak" embroidered across the back of the wedge and then a skull near the top. There is also an ankle strap which has studs around it. To top it off, inside the shoe is lined with a leopard print, officially making them the most perfect summer wedge!
Now, usually I don't like heels but these are really chunky plus they are platforms and feature a pentagram so I think that I can make an exception for these. As soon as I seen these I loved them because they are edgy but strappy which makes them cute for summer. I'm loving the details on these shoes like the toe straps that go all the way down the platform and the zipper up the back of the shoes. They are made from super soft vegan leather and the o-rings add a really cute element to them that I really enjoy!
I realize not everyone is about the platforms or wedges like I am so I found some super cute flats that are pretty spooky. They're simple and black with a cute white ribcage applique. Flats are always nice because they're super easy to just slip on and go. I love the style of the shoe style with the rounded toe and how there is a slight cut out of a shoe tongue giving them a 30's vibe.
These are kind of a take on the gladiator sandals that everyone seems to love so much. Me? I'm not a fan so these are my perfect solution! I am loving these because they've got an awesome zipper all the way up the back which would make these pretty easy to get on and off. They are faux suede and the platform is 3" so not bad but a little bit of height! The straps all up the front totally give it the gladiator vibe but the style is definitely witchy with the platform!
If none of the shoes above did it for you or you just really love your T.U.K's. These are cute and perfect for summer because they are entirely perforated leather which means they would be super breathable but still look super badass. If you're used to wearing combat boots and don't really feel like straying away from them these are probably perfect for you, plus who doesn't love a new pair of combat boots to break in?
So there you have it, five alternative style shoes that you definitely need for summer! My personal favourite is still the Kind of a Freak wedges but in very close second is the Summer Feelz platforms but let's be real I'm pretty sure I need to get my hands on all of them!
