Summer Shoe Trends: Silver, Bold Colors, and Comfortable Heels

As the snow melts in many parts of the country and spring flowers bloom, talk naturally turns to spring and summer fashion trends. If you've been paying attention to the chatter and fancy of the latest runways as we have, you'll notice that there are some exciting shoe trends this year. Here's what's en vogue this season that you'll be able to wear to the office, resort-hopping, or for a night on the town.

Summer shoe trends this year are bold and memorable.

Silver Shoes

Silver is everywhere in fashion this year! Luckily it's not the sterling variety, so these shoes are affordable. Silver has become a popular color for shoes for several reasons. Like silver jewelry, it's versatile and goes with practically everything. One pair of silver shoes can complement many outfits. Also, it pops! Silver shoes are stunning and, if you're looking to get noticed, this color is the perfect choice for you. Be sure to check out our UKIES Angelina - Mirrored Silver Nappa platform pumps. These mirrored nappa leather shoes are both eye-catching and some of the most comfortable heels your feet will ever experience.

Bold Colors

Summertime simply begs for bold colors and this year is no different. As you ditch the fleece and down jackets, brighten your accessories and footwear with bold colors. Whether you are adding contrast to an outfit or complementing its primary colors, you're doing it right. Bold shoes don't have to be merely solid colors, either. You can also take your outfit up a notch by adding bright print shoes to the ensemble. If you are interested in going bold this season, check out our UKIES Marilyn pointy toe pumps in both Red Patent and Floral Print. Another excellent choice in bold colors is the Grace - Purple Nappa Mary Jane flat.

Embrace your inner hippie with tassels and flower power.

Unique Adornments

If you follow fashion, you're already familiar with the idea that trends tend to cycle. The fringes and unique adornments that were so popular in the 1970s are back! Look for shoes with tassels, funky fringe, and flowers to brighten up your season. Our UKIES Audrey, Giselle D'Orsay and Giselle Mary Jane are just a few styles that have these types of adornments.

Comfortable Heels

Fortunately, we no longer live in a society where we have to choose between style and comfort. This wasn't always the case as women made great sacrifices for the sake of fashion. Thanks to modern technology, comfort is in style no matter what the season is, and UKIES has created a line of comfortable heels with patented nanoGel® technology. UKIES shoes are designed to reduce the overall pressure on your feet, resulting in a higher level of comfort and a lower risk of shoe-related foot problems.

As the seasons change, we are given the opportunity to refresh our wardrobes and to fall in love with some exciting trends in fashion and summer shoes. As you shop for your new shoes in bold colors, with fancy adornments, or shiny silver, remember that UKIES provides free shipping and returns nationwide and has designed some of the most comfortable heels on the market. Get your wardrobe ready for summer and shop all pumps now!
