As our day-to-day outfits have conformed to the current dynamics of our world, shoe trends have also drastically shifted to meet our most recent leisure needs. Because we are leaving the house less and limiting our exposure to the outside more, our demand for comfortable footwear has become a matter of even greater importance. Although life has gotten less hectic for many of us and we now have more time to lounge around in style, our priorities have gone from stunning statements to subtle chic real quick, forcing us to frantically adjust our shopping needs to fit our new lifestyles.
While temperatures rise, we're wearing less these days from our heads to our toes. As we run errands and find creative ways to be active outdoors, we've become less pressured to go full glam while subscribing to a new form of effortlessly wearing not-so-ordinary basics but making them fashion.
No longer limited to dull neutral tones and flat thin soles, creative variations of slides, Velcro straps, quilted, and chunky platform sandals are on the rise. With contrasting colors, textures, and intricate designs, this is the revitalized luxe shoe trend to slide your feet in for the remainder of summer 2020.
