Ask Shopbop: 5 Must-Have Shoes for Summer

With warm weather just around the bend, we asked stylist Loni to break down this summer’s shoe trends. Here are her picks for a fully stocked wardrobe.

These Maison Martin Margiela peep-toe booties are a great way to dress up skinny jeans.

PEEP-TOE BOOTIES
Booties are a summer staple. A sleek peep toe lends sexy contrast to distressed jeans, miniskirts, and other casual tailoring. Find a neutral pair for versatile wear—preferably with a heel.

Simple Ancient Greek Sandals look extra-chic with a pedicure.

SLIDE SANDALS
This season’s revival of the slide sandal has sore feet everywhere rejoicing. Try a classic pair, whether it’s Birkenstock’s double-buckle rendition or a simple cross-strap style. Wear them with or without socks—you can’t go wrong!

With so many colors and prints, there’s a slip-on sneaker fit for every girl’s closet.

SLIP-ON SNEAKERS
Slip-on sneakers are a must for casual summer looks. Think cutoffs, vintage tees, and ’90s floral dresses. They’re a perfect way to inject playfulness into a cool, grungy ensemble.

The ankle ties on these Paul Andrew gladiator sandals are perfect with a cuffed jean.

GLADIATOR SANDALS
The gladiator sandal has received some fun updates for summer. Whether they’re laced-up, caged, metallic, or fringed, this style looks super chic with crisp shorts and a modern-meets-feminine top.

Try bright clogs, like these Sweedish Hasbeens, with bare ankles for a fresh summer look.

CLOGS
Clogs are a casual way to achieve a fresher, more summery feel than a pump. A bright strap and wooden platform also look great peeping out from under flare jeans.
