I'm Freaking Out Over How Expensive These 30 Under-$100 Summer Shoes Look

Affordable summer shoes



If someone asked me what my favorite thing about summer is, I'd be quick to respond that it's the shoes. (it's true—I'm not keen on the weather.) Summer shoes are fun and friendly and can actually be pretty affordable. Perhaps because summer shoes require fewer materials, I find sourcing pairs that only look expensive to be easier than in other seasons.

Since I currently have summer shoes on the brain and freak over affordable shoes that look expensive, I made a shopping list. These 30 summer shoes will thrill and delight, but they won't deplete your bank account all that much, as each pair costs less than $100. I scoured the stock at Mango, Zara, Nordstrom, Shopbop, and several other favorites, and I think you'll be pleased with my findings (all of which look like they cost at least a few hundred dollars). Scroll to find—and perhaps order—your favorites.

Our editor in chief, Kat Collings, put these on my radar, and she has impeccable taste in shoes. 

These will go with literally everything.

These would be perfect vacation sandals.

This peachy color would go with everything.

Yes, they're technically jellies, but the color and sleek shape make them look expensive.

Fisherman sandals are my favorite shoe trend of this summer, so these are a no-brainer.

I don't typically like espadrilles, but these are really good.

The woven leather makes these look extra expensive.

These can easily be dressed up or down.

I can't believe these are only $35.

Sometimes, hardware can look cheap, but not in this case.

Just read the reviews if you need convincing.

These would make great wedding shoes.

These won't take up much room in your vacation suitcase.

You can't go wrong with any of the colors these come in.
