TOP 5 Footwear Trends - Summer 2021

 This article is coming out a little bit later than I would have preferred but I hope it will be of help for those that want to stay in trend for the summer. 


Retro sneakers are definitely making a huge comeback this season. New Balance came back really strong with their 327 sneakers that have sold out almost everywhere. I was able to snatch a pair in black and I'm loving the look and comfort. Many other brands have come up with their twist but if you're able to grab a pair of the New Balance 327, just take them they retail for about 110$ CA, which isn't bad for comfortable and stylish sneakers. 


These Zori inspired sandals came out last summer and some people did jump on the trend wagon, however they're coming back this summer with many more pattern versions and obviously it's been commercialized.  Personally they're not my favourite, I'm not a big fan of thong sandals as I find them uncomfortable on toes but I could see why these sandals are fashionable. 
 

Platform sandals have always been around, however this year TEVA is literally going to increase their sales by a lot more! These fashionable trek like sandals are literally everywhere and they come at different retail price point so it's good for anyone's budget. I might get a pair for myself this summer :)




Jelly, jelly, jelly all the way! I personally passionately hate jelly like sandals or shoes because they get extremely HOT with the sun, they make your feet sweat and stinky and to top it all off they are THE worst shoes for the environment because they're made of PVC which a plastic that is literally impossible to breakdown... Now will this stop companies from making these shoes... probably not, and will it stop from consumers to gravitate towards this instagram trend... probably not! If you're into this trend you can get a lookalike of these Gucci sandals at your local Steve Madden. 


Air Jordan kicks are simply iconic and they're an essential style to add to your shoe collection. I had a pair back when I was 20 something but I should get myself a new pair. This year even Dior collaborated with Nike to create this unique pair of Air Jordan's that cost a fortune! This season many girls will be wearing a pair of Air Jordans in a primary color like red, green or blue. 

Hope you enjoyed reading this article!
