Brighter days ahead

Are you ready to get your feet out this summer? Thankfully, it’s time to say goodbye to your winter boots and bring out your sexy sandals. Although it’s not summer yet, here at Staiy, we are already feeling that warm and sunny vibe. With brighter days ahead, investing in on-trend summer styles is an absolute must! With temperatures rising, it’s a great time to switch up your shoe game for when that glorious sun arrives. 

With summer around the corner, summer shoes are at the forefront of everyone’s mind. If you’re daydreaming of the longer days, the sun shining on your face, and walking on the beach, then you can never have too many summer shoes in your wardrobe.

For S/S 2021, there are a lot of distinct silhouettes that are popular with designers and retailers. This year it’s all about comfort, style, and having that extra edge. From flatforms to wedges to chunky sandals – whatever your style is – we have got you covered. Don’t worry if these styles aren’t your thing, you won’t be off-trend wearing your fancy flip flops on the beach this season.

The great thing about these trends is that you can wear them with everything from your favourite summer dress to your blue jeans. With your shoes on point, you might want to sit back, relax on your sun lounger, put on sunscreen, pour some sangria, listen to your favourite song, and enjoy that summer sun!

We’ve picked 5 on-trend shoes to invest in for S/S 2021 that will have your toes tingling.

1. Flatform

Yes, the nineties decade is back, and we are loving this look. Flatforms are this season’s most popular footwear trend. If you want your feet to be on top form and yet comfortable, opt for a pair of flatforms. They will give you that lift that you are looking for without making your feet hurt. We love these sustainable flatform sneakers from Allkind. The vegan snakeskin leather gives them that luxe look. These chunky flatforms will give you the cushioning to keep you looking – and feeling – comfortable all day long!



2. Double buckle Sandals

Slip into summer 2021 with classical, double buckle sandals. With it being summer it would be rude not to invest in a pair of open-toe shoes. You cannot go wrong with these essentials in your wardrobe. They will be your go-to shoes this summer and beyond as they will never go out of fashion. Combine them with a long maxi dress or alternatively pair them with skinny jeans and a blouse to complete your outfit. We had to double-take when we saw these double buckle beauties from NAE Vegan Shoes. Not only are they unisex and vegan, they are also made from Piñatex™, an organic material made from pineapple leaf fibres.

3. Flip Flops

Flip-flops are a suitcase essential, but they don’t need to be worn just by the poolside. If you are keeping it casual, then flip into summer with flip-flops – they will complete your look. Flip-flops by Ocean Refresh are not only stylish, they are also made from plastic waste. They come in an array of colours such as petrol blue, ruby red, black and white. Your feet will be feeling good knowing you’re keeping the ocean clean wearing these flips. So, what are you waiting for? Slide them on and strut your stuff this summer.



4. Flat Mules

Who needs the back of a shoe when you can wear this season’s mules? We are musing over mules this season. These shoes are one of the hottest to invest in! They can be worn with anything from casual to dressy outfits: they fit every occasion. If you want to slip-on style, opt for this pair we love by The Cano Shoe. These open-back beauties will be your summer go-to shoes to wear day and night.

5. Strappy Sandals

Are you dreaming of getting dressed up and living outside your flat this summer? Well, you’ll be glad to know that the high strappy sandal is making a comeback just in time for the sunny days. If you are looking for a pair of chic slingback strappy sandals, then look no further than these red ones by 1 People. They will get you noticed and certainly turn heads! It’s all about being bright and bold so slip into these high heels and feel like a million dollars.
