Summer Style: The Hot List

The sun is starting to make an appearance and we are getting excited about summer and its long sun-drenched days. Holidays are getting booked, picnics in the park planned and invitations to the local beer garden sent. From women's summer espadrilles to luxurious leather men's summer shoes we have a style to suit every wardrobe. To look your best this summer, ditch the socks and plan your warm weather wardrobe with our comprehensive guide to the best summer shoes.

For Her:

  1. The Gladiator Sandal

    The hottest of days requires the hottest of styles; look no further than the on-trend gladiator sandal. An icon and a classic, this year the gladiator has been rejuvenated for SS18 with maximalist styling and ornate studs and trims. Contrast an attention-seeking style like Pirate by partnering with a colour blocking outfit.

  2. The Summer Boot

    Evoke 1960's nostalgia and festival-chic styling with a western boot. A gaucho heel is a must and, in our opinion, the more buckles and studs the better. We love a summer boot when worn with floaty fabrics and flowers in your hair.

  3. The Wedge

    It wouldn't be summer without a wedged sandal. This silhouette is perfect for garden parties, race days or any occasion where a lawn is involved. The wedge gives height without negating comfort and our icon-worthy Candyfloss in metallic leather is the perfect wear-with-anything women's summer shoe. .

  4. The Slider

    The slider has become an essential part of summer styling. Stylishly laid back, this slip-on style evokes lazy, hazy days spent in the sun. The geometric printed Bleeker gives any ensemble a cheerful pop of colour and texture. We love to wear ours with a perspex tote bag to hit the beach in style.

  5. The Slip-On

    When your summer vacation of choice is a romantic city break, a comfortable yet chic footwear choice is in order. Explore cobbled streets and eat your favourite ice-cream in a slip-on style like Cruiseline. With a lightweight sole and elasticated inserts, this sneaker-inspired style should have prominence in your suitcase this summer.

For Him:

  1. The Woven Loafer

    As temperatures rise, dress-codes tend to relax. For breezy summer style, opt for a luxuriously woven design like Uppercut. The perfect shoes for beach weddings or summer events, we love this style with relaxed chinos. Wearing without socks is a must!

  2. The Boat Shoe

    For ship-shape summer style the boat shoe is a classic choice. This traditional silhouette has been detailed with the quintessential leather lacing and is set on a non-marking slip-resistant rubber sole, ideal for hopping from beach to bar.

  3. The Sandal

    The sandal, a holiday essential, need not be boring. Choose a sartorial style like Fab Slide. A full leather footbed provides the utmost of comfort whilst a stripe of grosgrain fabric, evocative of traditional school colours gives a touch of class, especially when partnered with the matching belt.

  4. The College Loafer

    Bridge warm weather formal and casual wear with a slip-on style like the college loafer. This classic tasselled style can be dressed up or down in the warmer months but we love this navy nubuck pair when partnered with rolled up chinos and chambray shirts.

  5. The Summer Boot

    No longer reserved just for the cooler months, the boot is becoming a year-round staple. A lightweight crepe soled style like our Dakar is a fine example. This suede boot has been lifted into summer with contrast stitching and lacing. We love these with rolled up jeans and your favourite pair of sunglasses.
