Reader Danielle emailed me frustrated that she couldn't find any chic comfort shoes for summer. All she was finding were frumpy dated styles in drab colors. As someone who has fussy feet, I seek out comfort shoes and have been looking at the summer offerings. For some reason, most retailers choose to feature the beige, black, and brown boring styles of comfort shoes first but with some digging I found on-trend, fun, and colorful comfort shoes full of style for the season.

Over 50 Chic Comfort Shoes for Summer

Focusing on this season and the current trends, I broke this selection of over 50 different chic comfort shoes into categories:

  • Color, which Danielle asked for and I personally am always looking for
  • Espadrilles, which were being discussed in the Wardrobe Oxygen Community on Facebook recently, and are a summer classic
  • Puffy straps, which is a hot trend this year and a quick way to modernize your existing closet
  • Go with everything flat sandals, which are a summer staple and hard to find in comfort brands without chunky soles, weird mixing of textiles, and dated colors.

I hope these collages of what I find to be chic comfort shoes help you complete your summer wardrobes. And if you have scored any fab comfy shoes lately, please share them in the comments!

  1. Thank you, Alison! I love this post–the search for cute and functional summer shoes is a life quest. Here are more favourite sources to add to the mix:

    Color: the Canadian company Maguire, featured on a previous WO post about spring/summer wedding sandals, has such charming colored sandals. (I am working my way up to trying them; IDK how they actually wear.)

    All-purpose comfort:
    Those who enjoy Scandinavian-style wood soled clogs might like clog sandals. I have a pair of Swedish Hasbeens (stylish, spendy) and a slip-in pair of Troentorps (less vava, more affordable). Both offer a range of colors suitable for low-contrast pairings with many skin tones. Like other wood-soled clogs, they have a platform and then a lift in the heel to keep the shoes on your feet. It makes for a wearable, understated height boost (you may want this or you may want to avoid it).

    Fortress of Inca and sister brand Huma Blanco are another wonderful source for classy & classic shoes. They are fair trade, made in Peru; shipping is from Texas and fast.
    I just updated my summer work “sandal” with these mules in black:
    Thanks to the high quality and traditional materials they read very dressy when on.
    (For reference I am a university administrator in the mid-Atlantic; my work look is Serious x European x Seasonally Appropriate)
    Unlike actual Scandi-clogs, they do not have a solid wood sole, so I don’t expect them to hold up for decades of daily walking like traditional clogs would do.

    p.s. On a totally unrelated note, you look great in shorts–I went from your skorts review to your older shorts post and was struck by how well they look on you.
