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

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.

Next up, shop the most obsession-worthy shoes at Nordstrom right now.
