The summer heat still maintains its death-grip: crops are failing, and heat related illnesses are skyrocketing. Or another scenario: you’re ditching cold winter climes in favor of a vacation in the sun.
Luckily there are plenty of shoes that are perfect to wear without socks. But the days of feet sans socks are dwindling so, as autumn draws nearer, take full advantage of the hot days and warm nights to show off your pedicure and flaunt your fabulous feet in shoes like these!
10. Strappy and Sexy
Black patent leather strappy sandals, are sure to garner plenty of attention as the summer sun sizzles. Be warned, though, shoes this sexy may also raise the temperature an additional ten degrees!
Admit it. You had at least one pair of these shoes when you were younger. The jellies of your youth have taken a stylish turn with a peek-a-boo toe and vivid summer colors! Ditch the socks and keep your feet cool in a comfortable classic.
8. Pretty in Pink…and Pretty Tall, Too!
Sky high platform shoes are a fun way to show off your summer feet in a dramatic way. When your shoes are as hot as the temperatures, you should feel free to expose your toes!
7. Slide Your Feet into a Classic Slide
The time tested classic, the slide, is another shoe that is perfect to slip onto bare feet. This is a shoe that can be dressed up or dressed down during those long days of summer. This “barely there” shoe is the next best thing to going barefoot.
6. Aquatic/Water Shoes
During a season filled with trips to the pool, the beach, and the summer rain showers, the water shoe is not only stylish, but it is also practical. And, as an added bonus, if the heat ever subsides and the rains grace us with its presence, these shoes are perfect for stomping in puddles!
Funky fabrics and sturdy styling make clogs a fun and quirky choice for otherwise bare feet. Clogs are equally elegant with shorts or long, colorful gypsy skirts and clogs provide more support than a sandal.
Flats are a shoe that transitions easily from work to a romantic dinner for two. With the new fabrics and patterns available, the simple flat shows off your dramatic flair.
Elegant yet dramatic, the wedge is a bold choice for fashion forward feet. The wedge is not for the faint of heart fashionista.
After swimming in the ocean, slide your feet into seagrass slippers and then take a stroll along your private beach, or feast on tropical fruit and while you watch the summer sun slip from the horizon. The days of summer will, likewise, slip away soon; enjoy the days of bare feet and slippers while you can. (And even if you don’t happen to have a private beach, and if the closest thing you have to a tropical fruit feast is a lone can of diced pineapple in the dark recesses of your pantry, these slippers will still make you feel like a million bucks.)
1. Negative Heel “Earth” Shoes
With the stylish new earth shoes, you can protect your feet while keeping cool. The earth shoes have a negative heel which claims to improve posture. But whether you stand tall or slouch slovenly, your feel will be stylish.
If you love feeling the air on your toes, it’s always too soon to dig out woolen socks and clunky boots but, until then, make the most of the last days of summer … while you enjoy the shoes of summer and warmer climates!
