It isn’t just your clothing wardrobe that need a refresh in summer, your footwear closet needs a revamp too.

While sneakers may be your go-to choice of shoes to sprint around in summer, it isn’t necessarily your only option. And no, we aren’t talking about the rubbery flipflops. Think sandals, mules, espadrilles, loafers and chunky boots sans the heels — the variety is endless.

These alternatives can be easily styled with your everyday work attires. From long commutes to hassle-free step counts across boardrooms — a cosy pair of footwear can help you glide across without the pinching stiletto bites. Plus, comfort doesn’t come at the cost of style — all of these substitutes will instantly become conversation starters, once noticed by your collegaue from the next cubicle.

Even if you’re planning to travel this season, the reliable pair of white sneakers may not do justice to all your Insta-worthy outfits. Whether you’re looking to style it with your elegant spring dresses or that comfy pair of linen pants, we’ve got a sartorially appropriate option for them all. Trust us to punctuate your beach and brunch ensembles with the perfect footwear choice.
