5 Shoe Trends to Try Now

BY Holly Speck | August 15, 2016 | Feature Features

Walk a mile in these shoes and never look back. Here are our favorite late-summer styles.
The Boardwalk simple slide sandal, $69.50, at Madewell

1. The Slide Sandal
Leave the slide at home and slip into a summer of style with the Willa slide sandal ($88), or the super sleek The Boardwalk simple slide sandal ($69.50). Both are minimal, comfortable and oh-so chic. Madewell, 1237 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 202.333.3599

2. Scallops
These summery crawfish are a must in your salad, but now step into scalloped shoes! Scallop scoops give your shoe the sophistication needed for a warm day in the office. Open-toe scalloped flat, $264, Duchess M, 805 King St., Alexandria, Va., 571.385.4335

3. The Platform Sandal
The summer sandal bar has just been raised. This hot style offers a height and heel differing from any other shoe. Stay a level above. PODK platform sandal, $405, Hu’s Shoes, 3005 M St. NW, 202.342.0202

4. Comfort Chic
Believe it or not, comfort chic is in! Ladies, reward your feet this season with a pair of stylish Birkenstock Daloa’s ($110), and, gentleman, chill in the classic Birkenstock ($135) while relaxing on a sunny Saturday. Mephisto Georgetown, 1329 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 202.735.5336

5. Chunky is the New Skinny
Finally, a summer style that praises chunk! Thick hides of tan and black atop an even thicker wedge makes for a solid style choice for late summer. From $119, Camper, 3219 M St. NW, 202.333.0507
