Shoe Trends for Summer 2022


Summer 2022 is almost upon and so too is the desire to add a little freshness to our wardrobes. Trends continuously come and go with the passing of each season. But, the best thing about investing in summer footwear is that we frequently see the same trends come back around time and time again. You really cannot go wrong with a bright white sneaker, a nude strappy heel, a classic leather sandal and a pair of trusty flip flops. These styles will serve you well throughout the warmer months.

But if you are still looking to update your summer style then read on to see our round up of the shoe trends for summer 2022.

Strappy heels

Strappy heels will always be a fashion staple. This season designers have taken inspiration from the rainbow. The trending colours include cerulean blues, emerald greens, amber oranges and canary yellows. Colour may frighten some people but the easiest way to inject colour to your wardrobe is through accessories. Therefore, a pair of colourful strappy Aquazzura heels is a great choice. They will look great worn with a simple slip dress in the months ahead.


Sky-high platforms were a mainstay on the SS22 catwalks. Women who like to add a little height without necessarily wearing a narrow heel will rejoice because the platform trend is not just about heels. It has infiltrated every style of shoe this season. Platform sandals and trainers are everywhere. Check out all the cool girls of social media who are sporting this trend for some styling inspiration. 


The sporty slide provides this season’s nod to the athleisure trend. They have been around for the last couple of years and are showing no signs of going anywhere just yet. It-girl and model Hailee Bieber is just one of many celebrities that have been spotted sporting slides in recent months, some even pairing them with socks.

They give an instant laid back and casual look to any outfit allowing you to channel you inner LA girl. They are available from all the classic sport brands and high-end designers so there is a pair to suit all budgets this summer. However, the slides and socks debate still rages on.


Designers have incorporated summer classics such as natural colours and materials like raffia and rope into another of this season’s trend shoe; the feminine mule. These will be stunning worn with a simple white summer dress. If you like to match your shoes and handbag for an occasion, they will be ideal with a beautiful straw basket bag. Mules are a great option for the office too, when you need to remain smartly dress in the hot weather.


Wedges are another summer staple due to their wearability. A smart pair of espadrilles are a summer must have. However, if you want to take inspiration from high fashion then seek out a pair of wedges with more architectural appeal. This summer there are lots of interesting heel designs that are such to be a talking point with friends, all the while making it easy to mingle at garden parties.
