#1 Sam Edelman Studded Sandals

These sandals have been a heavy hitter for me all summer. They were perfect on our vacation to Sea Island, GA. (You can see some of my outfits from the trip here.) They’re comfortable, lightweight, and come in four colors. I like that this color is more neutral and blends into my skin tone. I also love that these are basic summer sandals, but the studs give them an edge. They run true to size.

#2 NSale Marc Fisher Shooties

These Marc Fisher shooties (booties/shoes) are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You can shop all of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites in this post. These are the perfect transition shoe to take you from summer to fall. They have a chic vintage feel, and I love that they’re suede! They run true to size.

#3 Vince Camuto Booties

I talked about these booties in a post here. It’s a peep toe bootie with an easy-to-get-on-and-off side zip. The leather is perforated so they are breathable and keep your feet cool, even on a hot summer day. I think these are my coolest summer booties to date!

#4 Anthropologie Metallic Sandals

Sadly, these exact shoes are sold out, but I linked a similar option here. They’re a metallic slide from Anthropologie that are SO cute for summer! I sometimes forget about Anthropologie, but it’s always worth popping by…especially when you are looking for shoes or a piece that really stands out.

#5 Vince Camuto Three Strap Sandals

Another heavy hitter this summer…these Vince Camuto sandals. I’ve worn them so much! They’re really comfortable and EASY to walk in because of the chunky heel and ankle strap. I have the ‘Metal Sand Fabric’ color and they run true to size. These shoes dress up EVERY look.

#6 White Pointy Toe Pumps

If you’re looking for a dressier summer shoe, you should grab these! White mules are very in style right now. They’re modern and chic, and can really elevate your look. These shoes have a kitten heel so it’s a manageable height. The pointed toes elongate your legs.

#7 Marc Fisher Black Espadrilles

I’ve had these black espadrilles for a while! And, I’ve worn them SO much, I actually broke them about two weeks ago. It’s an easy fix, but who the heck knows where you take shoes to get repaired in Telluride?? Ugh, it probably means a trip to Montrose. I love these SO much because they are insanely high wedges (like five inches) and insanely comfy for the height. They have a white spongey sole that makes them more comfortable.

#8 Treasure & Bond Wedges

one of my 10 favorite summer shoes, Treasure & Bond espadrille wedges worn with a gray romper in Sea Island, GA

I LOVE these wedges! I talked about these in my spring lookbook video and they were in my April Favorites video. They are so comfortable, and they look amazing on your feet.  You can stand for hours in these, no problem!

#9 Sam Edelman Cutout Sandals

These Sam Edelman slides are another great pair of summer sandals! As you might expect from Sam Edelman, these are very comfortable! I have them in the ‘Pewter Leather’ color and they run true to size.

#10 Vince Camuto Velcro Booties

I love a good summer bootie! These booties are perfect for a busy, on the go mom that needs a style shoe to throw on with your jeans, denim shorts, summer dress, etc. Why? Because they have a Velcro strap!! Yes…Velcro. You can slide these on, close the strap and be out the door in no time! I have them in the ‘Vanilla’ color and they run true to size.
