The Perfect Summer Shoes

When the weather gets warmer no one wants to be walking around in their bulky Winter boots however I personally tend to shy away from the typical Summer sandals. I will happily spend hours looking at pretty sandals and flip flops but I don't tend to actually wear them that often. A lot of people don't like their feet, me being one of them, so I tend to buy shoes that cover my feet whilst not overheating them. 

I've loved Espadrilles for a little while now but none of the pairs of them that I've seen up until now give another support to my feet and ankles. Alongside many other reasons that is why I've fallen in love with these bargain New Look shoes.

Firstly I'm really glad I chose the Navy pair as it is a much more Summer appropriate colour, I have pairs of black shoes all over the house so it's nice to change things up a little. Also the main thing that drew me in is the Aztec trim that goes around half of the shoe, it adds just a little bit of detail which is great for me as I tend to wear quite plain clothes most of the time. 

These shoes don't just look nice though, they are also very comfy. The main material used isn't going to support your feet like trainers will but I think it's the sole that makes the difference. It's thick and seems to be quite durable compared to other espadrilles out there. I can definitely see these shoes lasting for not only this Summer but next Summer as well. The main material used to cover your feet isn't supportive but it does keep your feet cool which is really good as the temperatures here in the UK seem to just keep on rising at the moment. Overall these shoes are just really comfy!

The one thing that always makes me smile when it comes to buying shoes and clothes is low prices and these are priced at just £9. I know you can get something similar in Primark for £4 or £5 less but I think these are definitely going to last longer so paying a few more pounds isn't a massive deal, I can definitely see myself buying a different pair of these New Look espadrilles for Summer.

Do you like espadrilles? Or do you prefer sandals?

  1. Love my New Look espadrilles! Mine have survived a surprisingly long time, but I'll probably get a couple of brighter pairs for summer (like you I am in black shoe city). Charlie x
