Espadrilles
Although they had a little comeback last year, this year the Espadrille will be hitting it big! Realizing an espadrille can be worn with anything, from jeans to a cute black dress it makes it the ideal summer footwear. Great thing about this cute loafer-like sandal is the fact that they come in many price ranges from utterly cheap to fancy price tag expensive.

Platforms
With the 70’s returning slowly into fashion, it’s not surprising that the Platform is making it’s way into our shoe collection again: they’re just perfect pairing with your floor-grazing flares.

Slides
For years these big sisters of the flipflop were only aloud in the shower area of your local gym. But who would have thought that fashion and function would meet? This summer the athletic slides are equally functional as they are on trend.

Mules
Some daring fashion bloggers already tried this trend a few years a go but the majority of women didn’t love them. This season though Strauss says it’s different: “These aren’t your grandma’s backless pumps. Rubber soles, chunky heels, textured bridge, the updated style is something that everyone seems to be slipping into this season.”
