Top 7 Shoes for a Sassy Summer

17 June, 2013

You know what they say – give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world! But what they forgot to mention is that not only do we need a pair of shoes for every occasion (actually, make that more like five pairs…), but that when the weather changes, so must our footwear! Time to ditch the furry boots girls, and bring on some bright colours and strappy sandals especially for summer. Looking for some shoespiration? Here are our Top 7 Shoes for a Sassy Summer for you to conquer the season in style.

Havaianas Slim Animals Fluo
HK$288 (US$26)

What’s summer without flip-flops? Havaianas are a perennial Sassy fave thanks to their sturdiness, shape, versatility and comfort, plus the nifty textured soles that make them non-slip on both sides. Their slightly higher price tag is totally justified by the quality and price per wear (trust me, these will last waaaay longer than your Ladies Market bargain buys) – I’m a total die-hard fan and am now on my third pair! The only downside? There’s just far too many awesome options to pick from! I’m loving this animal print plus neon combo for summer… but the choice is yours!

Available at Havaianas, Shop F11, Xplus, LCX, Level 3, Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, TST, 2619 9515; see all Havaianas stockists in Hong Kong here

Aerosoles Solitaire Flats in Pink Combo
HK$699 (US$59)

Ever since TOMS made them trendy again, espadrilles (canvas flats with rope/rubber soles) have become a total summer must-have… and what’s not to love about them? Easy to wear, they match literally any kind of summer-ish outfit you might be planning, plus you can walk a thousand miles in these little babies! Getting an upgrade from its espadrille ancestors, we are loving the suede lining upgrade and flexible rubber sole (mmm, comfy!) of these Aerosoles flats… and of course, the pop of shocking pink!

Available at Aerosoles, Shop 243, City Plaza, Tai Koo Shing or Shop 103, Man Yee Arcade, 68 Des Voeux Road, Central; see all locations in Hong Kong here

JuJu Vicky Coral Cut Out Flat Shoes
HK$175.52 (US$22.06)

Are they sandals? Are they flats? Whether you are going for an alfresco brunch or a date night drinks, these Juju lattice flats are up for it. Made with recyclable materials, they won’t suffocate or stink up your feet, and that cut-out lattice style is just downright adorable! Formal enough for a summer dress thanks to those closed toes, they would also pair nicely with your usual casual tee and shorts combo. Juicy coral with a glitter flecked finish? Added to cart!

Available via ASOS

Portovelo Canvas Flats in Chelsea Red
HK$395 (US$48)

If you’re heading out on adventures this summer (how about our top HK day trips for starters?!), you’ll need a good pair of flats ready for exploring the great outdoors or weaving through crowded streets. Cushioned, non-slip soles with a convenient slip-on means no more blisters and no more shoe laces, so you can focus on the real purpose of your holiday, which is to buy more shoes… I mean to discover amazing sceneries and food!

P.S For each pair of shoes you buy, Portovelo donates money to charities that improve people’s lives. Even more incentive to buy!

Jeffrey Campbell Lita in Mint
HK$1658.47 (US$213.58)

Alright, time to bring out the big guns! We’re all familiar with JC’s ultra flattering Lita shoes, which are dangerously, deceivingly tall (they’re actually a breeze to walk in). This season’s it-colour is mint… so what’s better than a pair of classic black Litas? A pair of mint Litas, of course! This pastel colour can glam up any ol’ monotone outfit in a snap. Save up for them if you have to, but these gems are a must-have!

Superga 2790 Linea Up Down Flatforms in White
HK$675 (US$77.72)

Need a little extra height without sacrificing your comfort? Flatforms are the way to go! Spotted on Alexa Chung and Rita Ora, these funky canvas platform shoes will go perfectly with your favourite skinny jeans or cut-off shorts. If you think white canvas shoes are only for school, then think again…

Available at Superga, Shop 2607, Level 2, Gateway Arcade, Harbour City, Kowloon, 2175 0228 or from ASOS (free shipping!)

ASOS Hackney Heeled Sandals
HK$607.57 (US$76.36)

How can we forget the classic stiletto! The metallic silver front straps here hit the season’s trends dead on, and the subtle deep blue makes the whole look that much sexier. Perfect for a day-to-night look, you can head from the office to the bar in style… now that’s truly working it from head-to-toe!
