Summer Is My Favorite Shoe Season—Shop My Nordstrom, Amazon, and Shopbop Picks

For the past few months I’ve practically been living in tennis shoes at home but I’m very ready to swap out my sneakers for some sandals now that summer has arrived. Much like the sweatpants I’ve retired and replaced with linen pieces, I’d also love to rotate in more easy flats and comfortable slides. And there are plenty of cool summer shoes that have landed on my radar recently.

From minimal strappy flats and heeled flip flops to subtle platforms and ruched shoes, I’ve already spotted fashion insiders wearing many of the season’s rising footwear trends and I can’t wait to add to my closet. Ahead, get a look at my edit of the 30 best summer shoes to buy from Shopbop, Nordstrom, and Amazon. Whether you’re pairing them with a cool maxi dress, a pair of linen pants, or Bermuda shorts, these are all the instant outfit upgrade to add to your wardrobe.
