Finding a pair of truly comfy summer shoes these days is revolutionary. Armed with the right pair of shoes, you’ll be ready to take on the world!
So, why is it nearly all the beautiful footwear out there tends to cause us so much grief?!
Blisters, heel pain, that pure A C H E after a night out… Behold, the answer to your foot pain-tainted prayers: I’ve created a round-up of my 5 comfiest pairs of shoes for summer!
There’s even a game-changing hint at the end of the post so be sure to read all the way through for that… 👀
You know that one pair of shoes in your wardrobe. The pair you could trust with your life.
If this reliable pair of shoes was a person, it would tell you when your eyebrows were a little too dark or that you had something stuck in your teeth. You know the ones I mean? Let’s call them the ‘old faithfuls’…
We latch on to these go-to pairs of shoes. We’ll end up wearing nothing else all summer and too damn right! We’ve been betrayed before. Hurt by deceitful shoes… The ones that look SO pretty but the toe-post kills or the straps shred your feet to bits.
The ‘old faithfuls’ are the dream pair of shoes you can wear without sporting big cuts all over your feet or pre-warning your feet with plasters (we’ve all been there, no shame).
Thankfully, I own some of the loveliest, comfy summer shoes. They’re all perfect for this glorious season and they’re quite simply fab, comfy summer shoes that you’ll often find me sporting with both my work outfits and chilled weekend-wear (totally a word btw).
If you’ve spotted my Instagram feed before, you’ll know I tend to go for monochromatic colour combinations. I have a few pairs which combine that with a simplistic pattern for my timeless classic gal days. Rest assured that I also have a haul of fancy-pants, embellished sandals and shoes with pop of colours for when I’m feeling particularly adventurous or if my outfit is calling for jazzy shoes.
The picks in my round-up of perfectly comfy summer shoes hail from the likes of Next, Office and Clarks (Trust me! A-mazing shoes). They each give your wardrobe an instant refresh in a different way, not to mention pop a bit of life into your step.
Finding comfy summer shoes is all about walking more confidently AND comfortably… Maybe even confident that you’re comfortable, right? Right?!
Next – Glitter Beach Sandals
A more affordable, probably more comfortable version of a certain popular beach shoe… Cough *Solillas* cough.
Clarks – SHAGREEN NARRATIVE SANDALS
The crucial elements – Soft leather straps, easy buckles and a solid base so you can’t feel every jagged crater of earth underfoot.
Office – Honey Slingback Sandals
Glitter AND soft leather straps? YES! Tonnes more colourways? Sign me up.
Skechers – Black Crochet Slip-On Bobs
These Bobs from Skechers have the brand’s trademark supportive sole and arch cushioning!
Vans – Red Hawaiian Van Dorens
My all-time favourite Vans.
With each of these pairs of shoes, you can walk safe in the knowledge your footwear won’t become a torture weapon and betray you more with each and every step! Whether it’s errands or adventure, my comfy summer shoes are on this 5 Things post for the same reason!
With so many things to tick off your list in your busy lifestyle, worrying about your feet/shoes totally should notttttt be one of those.
Remember one thing – You don’t have to forsake style or your favourite shoes in the name of comfort…
Time for that hint I mentioned!
Introducing Orthosole, the orthotics which fit seamlessly into your lifestyle, fashion tastes and, ultimately, inside your shoes!
The brand is co-founded by cricket legend, Ronnie Irani, who knows all about the aches and pains from his years spent on the cricket pitch. Providing the ultimate orthopaedic solution, Orthosole have designed their own unique system for customising the support to suit your needs…
Discreet for any occasion, the insoles are super adaptable with 3 levels to suit the existing arch in your shoes and the support required – Sounds perfect, right?!
Let’s talk a little bit more about those 3 levels of support… There’s light, medium and firm. You can mix ‘n’ match and adapt depending on how your foot pain is feeling that day or what you know you’ve got planned for the day!
There’s even a shock-absorbent pad at the heel. It completely stopped a bouncing golf ball in its tracks when the lovely ladies from Orthosole stunned me with a demo.
Side note… If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, these inserts are basically DESIGNED for YOU!
Infact, Orthosole created the orthotics to benefit those who suffer with anything from hip, ankle and knee pain through to shin splints, overpronation/supination and even circulatory issues! I seriously recommend you check them out if you sat there ‘yuhuh’ing along to the little list above.
