With weekend pool days and outdoor gatherings officially on the calendar, it’s time to update your summer footwear! A good pair of sandals (or two, or three…) is a staple in any summer wardrobe, and here at Heel Boy we’ve rounded up some of our favourite styles for every event on your summer calendar. Whether you’re soaking up the sun by the pool, partying with your besties, or picnicking in the park, here are the sandals you NEED this season.
Is it really summer if you don’t spend most of it lounging by the pool? Level up those plain flip flops with a pair of funky pool slides that are (almost) as hot as you in that bikini!
These open toe thong sandals by Cougar are the definition of luxury. Padded straps and a cushioned footbed ensure maximum comfort, while water repellent leather and an anti-slip outsole mean you can strut poolside with confidence.
Want a “twist” on the classic pool slide? Look no further than the Kaanas Morelia slide and its twisted leather straps. Here at Heel Boy, we don’t believe in the term “overdressed,” and these slides are the perfect way to add a touch of sophistication to your pool day look.
Add some edge to your poolside look with these flatform slides from Lemon Jelly. Crafted from rubbery EVA, the Sunny slide is lightweight and totally water-friendly. Chunky sandals are totally in this season, so no one will bat an eye if you decide to make these your everyday summer shoes, poolside or not.
Pair them with the matching Splashybag to hold all your hot girl essentials (don’t forget your sunscreen!). Crafted from the same waterproof material as the Sunny slide, this bag can be easily cleaned after a long day by the pool.
Social events are back in full force this summer, and what better way to start celebrating than with a new pair of shoes! Whatever outfit you’re rocking to your summer festivities, we’re confident we have the perfect shoes to match!
We know how hard you’ve been working on your summer tan, and what better way to show off that bronze glow than with these glamorous metallic heels? Add a touch of gold glitter to your eyes and sparkle from head to toe!
Forget what you heard, all-black-everything is ALWAYS the right move (yes, even in the summer). Combat the summer heat in the Livia sandals from Black Suede Studio. Featuring barely-there straps, these crystal embellished beauties will keep you cool and comfy so you can look hot without feeling hot.
If bright and bold is more your vibe, these effortless slip ons by Vince Camuto will have all eyes on you. Forget worrying about your outfit–these shoes ARE your outfit! Complete with a comfortable low heel, you’ll be able to dance the summer nights away.
Picnics in the Park
These dreamy gingham print slides are the perfect sandal to live out your cottage-core fantasy in. Throw on a flowy dress, tie a ribbon in your hair, and lay your picnic blanket out amongst the flowers.
A picnic is prime time for a photo op but let’s be real, no one wants to sacrifice comfort to get that prize winning shot. With the Nine West SAREST3, you don’t have to! Featuring sexy barely-there straps and a cushiony molded footbed, these sandals effortlessly combine style and comfort to perfect your picnic outfit.
No straps, no heels, no need to waste time! Make the most of your summer with the Bueno Jesse. Simplicity at its finest, the Jesse features crossover straps and a flatform sole, proving that simple doesn’t have to be boring! Their versatility means you can slip them on with anything from floral dresses to denim cutoffs and get straight to snacking on charcuterie in the park.
We can’t think of a more perfect bag for spending a day in the park. Not only is this tote stunningly hand-crafted, but it has plenty of room for all your picnic goodies. Out with the bulky picnic basket, and in with the Juniper.
