Madewell Preston Sporty Slides

If you frequent the blog, chances are you’ve seen these Madewell slides a time or two. Erin has styled them with jeans, shorts, and cargo pants. They have a padded footbed and a rubber lug sole so the comfort and stability factor is dialed way up. These are minimalistic in style and a bit sporty too. All in all, an easy, grab-and-go walking sandal for summer that combines the comfort of a sneaker with the ease of a slip-on! And…they are just under $100.

These Sam Edelman slides are a little less sporty than the first pair we featured so you could wear them both casually and a bit more elevated with your summery dresses. The double leather strap is secure and streamlined. The gold metallic is really versatile for dressing up and down, but they also come in a few other colors.

Raffia Slides

Wow, these slides by Steve Madden have that designer look about them! The gold chain hardware and square toe are very on-trend. And the jute/raffia finish is just SO perfect for summer. These would be pretty styled with a mini, midi or maxi dress.

Designer Inspired!

Speaking of designer, these leather slides look very similar to a hot designer pair. The interlocking braided leather straps have a high-end vibe. The toffee color is a versatile neutral, but they come in black and ivory as well. These too have that on-trend square toe so there an update from last summer’s slides.

Braided Beauties

Dolce Vita is known for their comfortable shoes at an affordable price point. How cute are these braided sandals? They come in 10 different shades and most of those are on sale for $54 right now. These are super lightweight for summer! Size up ½ size.

Fresh White Sneakers

If you need a comfortable, chic white sneaker for summer, these should *foot* the bill. They are leather, classic and low-key! And since these are Sam Edelman, you know they'll be comfortable.

Chic Trainers

Nike is a leading brand for athletic shoes and we love the neutral look of these sneakers for those days you’ll be doing a lot of walking this summer, or when you hit the gym. They have a cushioned in-sole, arch support, and are lightweight.

Comfy & Sporty

This next sneaker is kind of a hybrid between a fashion sneaker and an athletic sneaker. One of our team members owns them in the white multi and she raves about them! Plus they look pretty similar to the Rag and Bone retro sneaker Erin loves! Linking both…

Crystal Bow Ballet Flats

One thing we often get asked about is stylish flat shoes. These crystal bow ballet flats look way more expensive than their $90 price tag! Right? So chic.

Classic Flats

Another classic pair of ballet flats, these are simple and elegant. They are leather, come in 2 other colors, and the reviews for comfort are very positive!

Luxe Looking Loafers

These open-back, leather loafers would look so chic with a pair of jeans and a white button-down! We love the oversized, monochromatic chain-link detail that is a little more subtle. The bone color would also be a great pick for summer.

Summertime Pumps

If you have a special occasion like a wedding, shower, or graduation, or if you just need a summery pair of heels for the office, Erin owns and loves these Sam Edelman Hazel pointed-toe pumps. They come in 25+ colors and get an A+ for comfort (for heels!) The warm tan is really pretty!

Just Slide In

Several Team Busbee members have these shoes in our summer wardrobe. The block heel makes them easy to walk in and if you wear a pair that matches your skin tone, you’ll have legs for days! They come in 10 colors including a shimmery gold if you need a special occasion shoe!

High Times

These heels are more on the glam side. They have a 4” inch flare heel, gold chain-link hardware, and a thin sexy ankle strap. The black is classic, and the ivory and beige just scream summer!
