This summer, it’s been all about the stylish, comfortable shoe—and we don’t think it’s going anywhere for a while. From cute espadrille slide-ons to fun printed sneakers, easy-to-wear shoes that don’t sacrifice style are a trend we were happy to indulge in when they started hitting the scene at full force. Now, we’re not ready to give them up. If there’s ever been a style that can so seamlessly transition from outfit to outfit with small switch-ups and fun accessories, these styles are definitely the sweet spot. Even better, they’ll make running errands, sightseeing, or any other walking-heavy day just that much easier for you.
Another great thing about this style is that they are a quick, dependable choice that doesn’t require too much thought—because we know you’re too busy to dedicate much time to deciding on what shoes to wear, but you still want a stylish shoe that gives some pop to your outfit. So, when flip-flops are too casual and high heels just too much effort, these closed-toe stylish kicks are the ones to bring out. You won’t worry about trying too hard or not trying enough, as these shoes give an air of cool nonchalance that will make everyone else jealous.
And another pro? We’ve seen these styles before, proving that sometimes it’s best to go with the tried-and-true. If Princess Diana and Duchess Kate can do it, then we sure are going to try it too. Slip on these comfy styles all season—and we think, year!—long (with some seasonal adjustments, of course). Below, we've rounded up six classic kicks in a variety of fun new colors and styles that were made for easy walking on the trails and sands.
