My summer shoe wardrobe wishlist

Summer is in the air and I can hardly wait! The sense of freedom that the summer holidays bring is unmatched and it really is my favourite time of the year.

As the weather warms up I have started to haul out more summer fashion from the back of my wardrobe but what I’ve discovered is that my summer footwear is woeful and really needs an overhaul!

This Black Friday is all about shoe shopping for me and so I’ve been doing some  browsing to plan my Black Friday shoe shopping for when the sales start!

Here are the shoes I’ve got my eye on to build up my own beautiful summer shoe wardrobe…

Best Summer Shoes

Birkenstock sandals

If you can believe it I’ve never owned a pair of Birkenstock sandals and this is the summer I’ve planned to change that. Everyone who owns a pair (or 10) raves about the comfort and I think I need to discover this for myself. I’m especially excited about this summery gold pair of Arizona birko-flor narrow sandals available on Superbalist.

Price: R1 399.00

P.S. Superbalist also have some great Black Friday clothing deals

Blu Betty leather sandals

I didn’t have these on my essential shoe wardrobe shopping list, but when I saw them I knew I needed a pair. I mean how pretty!? I love this gorgeous indigo blue hue! These are the Classico Indigo from South African leather shoe brand, Blu Betty. These genuine leather sandals have a cute peep toe detail and an elegant ankle strap.

Price: R850.00

Poetry Leather Thong Sandal

Sticking with leather I love this pair from Poetry – the Raina Thong Sandal in gold. Offering comfort and style, this classic leather sandal is perfect to wear everywhere and with everything.

Price: R499.00

Supergra sneakers

Another essential for my shopping list is a pair of these Kate Middleton faves. A pair of clean, white Supergra sneakers are gorgeous paired with short shorts, long skirts, jeans and dresses. Very versatile and perfect for casual chic dressing. They are good enough for a princess…. I like this pair with the white iridescent eyeletes.

Price: R799.00

Salomon Trail Running Shoes

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m no trail runner! However I’ve been doing a lot more hiking lately and I was told by a more experienced outdoor friend that trail running shoes are the best when it comes to hiking as they are lightweight and have plenty of grip. Another friend recommend the Salomon online store so I’m planning on purchasing a pair of these Salomon Ultra Pro W to replace my rather well worn old running shoes that have ZERO grip.

Price: R 2 499.00

Nike sneakers

And I really also do need a pair of these super fun Nike Air Max sneakers called ‘Daisy Leopard Iridescent’ I mean these are so pretty!!!

Price: R 2 399.00
