Three Staple Shoes You Need this Summer

If there is one thing that can lift any girl’s mood, it’s shoes! As Marilyn Monroe once said: Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the worldDuring this testing time, it is important we find things that make us feel normal and excited about the outside world again. Throughout isolation, air pollution has fallen drastically, so why not continue supporting our planet in other ways. 

So if you’re ready to create a big impact and leave a small carbon footprint, these are the 3 summer staple shoes you need 

The flatform!  

The elegant sandal that gives you the platform you needFor those of you seeking comfort while keeping your feet cool, consider your prayers answered. This practical pair ties all your summer outfits together. Nasty Gal has a strong option with a cork platform, combined with faux suede black straps that elegantly wrap around your ankle. The mix of neutral cork with dark fabric creates the perfect contrast and provides the ideal casual shoe this summer while using vegan resources such as faux suede and alternative materials like cork. 

The strappy heeled sandal is a must.  

This summer staple can be used to dress up any comfortable outfit. The simple barley there heel is a timeless classic, so to stay environmentally friendly, make this your summer staple for many years to come. 

Nasty Gal also has the perfect pair to get you through summer. With a low block heel, you can stay comfortable whilst looking the part with these lavish white lace straps tying around your ankle. These heels will quickly become your go-to and can look upscale tied around your baggy bootleg jeans or with your dainty summer dress. The white staple ‘strappies’ can go perfectly with this year’s UK tan (if the sun decides to stay for a while)… 

White trainers always 

A pair of white trainers are always needed for your casual throw on outfit days, where you still want to look your best. Aiming for the effortless ‘I didn’t try today look, whilst still looking great? We got you. They are the easiest summer shoe to style, making any outfit look chic and comfortable. The Adidas Stan Smith Trainer is the perfect summer trainer, originally made and inspired by tennis, the summer sport, these crisp white trainers can be thrown on with your mom shorts and baggy cardigans for that effortless look. A perfect sustainable example is their collaboration with Stella McCartney, which is entirely made from vegan leather and recycled materials. The distinct McCartney take on these classic trainers is refreshing. 

Which will be your summer staple? If it’s an option for you, then why not this summer to invest in some more sustainable shoes and take that large step to keep our carbon footprint small. You could support a small, sustainable business this summer such as Momco and Verney, both who are certified by PETA and aim to create vegan, sustainable shoes including sandals 

Small businesses still need you now more than ever, so why not support one who supports our planet?
