The new arrivals section is always a place that I look to for inspiration about which pieces to add to my wardrobe, but no item speaks to me as much as the shoe section. Much like our favorite style icon, Carrie Bradshaw, I believe in the power of a great shoe, and the collection in my closet will speak to that. With that in mind, you can count on me to always have an eye on the best new shoe arrivals, which, right now, are heavily leaning into summer styles I’m ready to add to my vacation wardrobe.
Ahead, I’m breaking down the best shoes that have recently dropped at retailers. From strappy sandals to barely-there flats to nouveau flip-flops and more, these are the shoes you’ll spot fashion insiders—and our editors—adding to their closets now. Go on to shop my picks that tap into the biggest trends of the moment that will continue all summer long.
