Summer is here and it’s time for some fresh toe-baring fashions. Breathable shoes are essential in hot weather, and this season there are plenty of trends that look great and are breathable and comfortable. Don’t forget your pedicure!
|2. Squeakers. Toddlers love the noise they make while learning to walk…and run! These cute flower sandals from Pickle have removable, interchangeable flowers and give a little squeak each time she steps down.|
|3. Metallics. Silver and gold, along with iridescents are the perfect match-everything without being plain white. Not only do they go with all her dresses and outfits, metallics stand out and can go from casual to dressy, day or night. This pair from Lemon Loves Lime is a cork footbed, thong style with a cute embellished seahorse on the top.|
|4. Sporty. Not mary janes, not sneakers. Often called skimmers, mary janes, ballerinas or sneakers, these breathable, canvas shoes are perfect to wear with pants and shorts in warm weather. The lightweight uppers breathe, and they can go in the wash. Wear with or without socks, for a comfortable, sporty step. Shown here: Deux par Deux Red Lipstick Ballerina Shoes.|
|5. Flip flops. Okay, they’re the staple, right? Wear to the pool, the beach, the grocery store. Flip flops maintain their popularity because they are just so darn easy to wear. Take ’em off, put ’em on. Comes in 1001 colors. But why settle for plain? These cute flip flops from L’amour Shoes have a very slight wedge heel, patent straps and a pretty flower and come in plenty of colors. Also available from L’amour: a dressier version of the patent flip flop sandal with a satin bow and stitched leather sole. Looks nice!|
|6. Flowers. Sweet, dainty, pretty flowers. Like these simple sandals from L’amour. Velcro straps and simple one-strap-vamp design are classic; the petals and rhinestones are modern. Plus they are pretty enough to wear to a wedding or garden party. Like everything L’amour makes, they come in plenty of colors, including the traditional summer white.|
|7. Super-highs. Like these airbrushed sneakers from Penelope Wildberry for Ooh! La, la! Couture. All the airy comfort of a canvas sneaker, with a bit of extra style. Plus these ultra-high-tops have zippers on the inside for easy on and off. Whew! And they look great with skirts and shorts. She’s guaranteed a few stares and compliments with these unique kicks.|
|8. Ballet flats. And not just any flats, either. Plain is so…plain! How about some shine? Or flowers for your twinkle toes? Today’s ballet flats come in all the soft colors you’d expect, like baby pink and white, but they also look fantastic in metallics or decorated with sequins and flowers. Going to a wedding? How about some pink sequined flats from Coastal Projections or a pair like these pretty gold Pazitos on the left? She’ll like how easy they are to wear and to match to her wardrobe. She doesn’t even have to tie them.|
