We’ve hit this sweet spot in the season when many of the biggest shoe trends have already emerged so you can feel confident buying them to add to your closet. And that’s not the only reason. The summer sales are in full swing, meaning most of the coolest styles are now available with pretty sizable discounts.

Ahead I’m breaking down some of the season’s most notable shoe trends and where you can buy them for under $100. Whether you’re into “Cinderella” shoes or chunky sneakers, combat boots or pretty metallic heels, there’s something everyone is sure to love. Now is the time to order those last-minute pieces for your summer wardrobe, and shoes are a great place to start.

PVC Shoes

I’m calling these “Cinderella shoes” because they’re what I imagine the princess would wear in 2018.

Combat Boots

Are these the unofficial shoes of the summer? I’m thinking yes. Pair yours with a minidress like Kaia Gerber.


I’m very pro mules. They’re the perfect shoes to pair with everything from jeans to skirts, and I wear mine year-round.

Chunky Sneakers

The divisive trend has been talked about at length on the internet. If you’re ready for chunky sneakers, here are some affordable ones to give a try.

Grecian-Inspired Sandals

Headed on a trip to the beach somewhere this summer? These are the perfect shoes to pack in your suitcase.

Block-Heel Sandals

Block heels are every fashion girl’s secret for comfortable shoes that have some height.


A simple pair of slides is perfect for any summer outfit. I’m especially loving these thin-strap and toe-strap versions.

Gold Heels

I’m dubbing these “French-girl shoes” because they seem to be in the wardrobes of every Parisian.


Are flip-flops really back? Street style star Pernille Teisbaek seems to think so.

If you’re willing to splurge, here are more summer shoe trends to shop this season.
