My Last 5 Purchases Were Shoes, and These Pairs Sent Me Into a Frenzy

More than any other fashion piece, shoes consistently top my shopping list. That means I always have my eye on what fashion people are currently adding to their closets as well as what's dropping in the new-arrivals sections. Whether I'm investing in shoes that I'll be able to wear over and over again or special styles that are really pieces of art, I feel like great shoes are a worthy purchase. So which ones are on my radar right now?

From big summer trends like ballet-inspired flats and thong-style heeled boots (including an affordable version of Miu Miu's internet-famous pair) to cool takes on vacation staples like espadrilles and leather slides to the biggest It shoes of the season, these are the new shoe styles that are catching my eye. Here, see my edit of the 29 best new summer shoe arrivals to shop now—including a $50 pair of mesh flats that are too good to pass up.

No one makes expensive-looking shoes like Zara.

When it's too hot for sneakers, this pair is the perfect stand-in.

If you can handle a giant platform, these are worth it.

Chances are you already have white sneakers, but the gum sole and contrast stitching here really level these up.

The ideal shoes for transitioning into cooler weather.

Style these with socks for an intentional look.

There's a wait list for these, and for good reason.

Expect fashion people to be all over these in a few months. 

Baby blue really can act as a neutral.

I'll be dreaming about these until they're finally in my cart.

Definitely unconventional but also oh so cool.
