It’s July. It’s sticky, it’s hot and it’s a total drag unless you’re wearing killer shoes. And by killer shoes, we don’t mean something found in Carine Roitfeld’s closet. Not all of us are thin enough and have a fat car service account to get away in those sky high heels. This month, Papierdoll brings you the most comfy, delicious, summer-worthy footwear of summer 2007. And they’re terribly stylish, of course!
Welcome the hot, hot weather with style. Topshop’s darling low rise sandal in mustard (about $120, topshop.com) is the perfect pair of afternoon-to-date-night sandals. Mustard has fast become a neutral, so wear them with rinsed denim, whitetrousers, a khaki shirtdress…
You may not know Beatrix Ong off hand, but get to know her. With footwear like this, you’ll want to. Her Gloriosa wedge with ankle strap ($382, shopbop.com) has a precious 1.5″ wedge that will give you all the height you need to make a statement. Plus, the sandalwood/truffle color combo gives the illusion of a naked foot, which is so chic when the weather is kicking in the 90s.
These may look as simple as they come, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be your go-to sandal from now until September. Available in black, brown, and white ($49, abejasboutique.com), these sandals with their Vibram sole will have you treading ever-so-lightly all summer long.
Every girl need something with ribbons. Marc by Marc Jacobs brings you the latest installation of that in the form of a fun wedge ($265, net-a-porter.com).Adaptable, but special, the shoes give a new meaning to the word playdate.
Yes, they’re everywhere. Yes, they’re expensive. And yes, there’s a reason why. They’re so disturbingly comfortable,you can get lost in an unknown city and never think twice about your feet. Lanvin’s cult hit ballerina flats ($495, gregorysshoes.com) made a splash some time ago, and they’re just as popular this season. Re-released in a slab of colors and fabrics, we’re loving the perforated white for summer.
