Best foot forward: the best footwear for summer

Esther N McCarthy picks eight of the best summer footwear, from toe-thongs to leather loafers.

PRETTY IN PINK: Inject a pop of colour into your summer look with these prism heel pink court shoes, €11, from Penneys.

HEELING POWER: For a more formal look for summer nights out, you can’t go far wrong with these embroidered black spike heels from Penneys, €22.

LADY IN RED: Get your tootsies noticed with these low block heeled red numbers. We love the floral tapestry effect. They’re available from Littlewoods, the V by Very Kourtney collection.

FLAT AND FABULOUS: Go anywhere, from pool to dancefloor, with these Fulton leather moccasins, from Arnotts Shoe Gallery, €95.

TAKE A BOW: We think this heel is the perfect height this season. Red patent cone heeled sandals, with a cute bow finish. Perfection. €39.99 from New Look.

LOAFING AROUND: Glam it up with these black and pink metallic leather loafers by Jonak Chachou, available from the new Arnotts Shoe Gallery, €150.

LUXE LEATHER: The Banda toe-thong sandal, €120, the most well-known style of FitFlop, has been restructured this season with perforated uppers and cushioned midsole.

We adore them. Flip onto Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for more.

ANIMAL ATTRACTION: Let the leopard loose with these cute animal print cross strap studded mules, €55 from New Look.
