With the ability to transform the tone of your outfit entirely, the fabric enrobing your feet should always be carefully considered. Summer is a season with a notoriously unpredictable weather forecast, and thus the fashion forecast is a myriad of flats, sandals, wellies and heels to choose from accordingly. Update your collection with these designer shoes that are sure to have everyone following your footsteps.

Flats
Ready-to-wear slip-on flats have that all-important ease factor for busy mornings when you have to rush out of the house without a second thought. You won’t have to worry about changing into something prettier/smarter/less comfortable later, though, as these flats will have you ready for anything from office meetings to brunch get-togethers.

Sandals
The shoe we’re all hoping to be wearing excessively this season is the humble sandal. Looking great with just about anything, though perhaps not tights, sandals come in so many different styles. Choose a minimalist strappy sandal if you don’t mind the tan lines, or opt for a little more coverage if you want to show a little less toe.

Heels
Wearing a heel instantly adds class to your outfit and confidence to your step. The leg-lengthening style of shoe has the potential to take even jeans from the office to the bar seamlessly. These picks will do just that.

Wellies
Where there’s a festival, there’s mud. Be brave and take your favourite sandals or trainers in hope that there’ll be no rain, but with British summertime all but guaranteeing at least a slight drizzle, it’s not worth the risk – especially when wellies have been designed as gloriously as these. It would be a crime not to pack them.
