Seasonal Shoe Trends: what's in for spring and summer

The new season brings with it a host of treats for your feet. From the must-have colors to the heights that should be on your radar, we’ve got the lowdown on what you should be wearing for the warmer months ahead. Let us take you through the top 6 summer shoe trends that we’ve spotted on the streets and the runway. Incoming: flats are here to stay - and that’s spectacular news over at revere HQ, since we’ve been right on top of this one before it was even a trend! Check out the latest shoe trends below.

Ballet flats are on-point

Move over tiny dancer, ballerinas are going nowhere. The uber stylish, ultra chic ballet flat maintains its position at the top of the 2024 shoe trends. What’s that, a sigh of relief we hear? Unsurprising, considering the endless comfort and ease that flat shoes have to offer. No no, you don’t need a heel to look or feel feminine - it’s all in how you carry yourself and that starts from the feet up. It’s true, there’s an undeniable confidence that can be achieved from wearing flat shoes like ballerinas; they provide comfort and support while looking chic. It’s knowing that you can walk seamlessly in your shoes all day and look sharp that makes ballet flats like the St Barts the perfect contender on the footwear front. Imagine them with smart getups like a jumpsuit and blazer or more off-duty outfits consisting of denim and a sweater. They truly are the ultimate companion for both work and play.

Slingbacks really are back

Take a look around at the summer shoe trends right now and you’ll notice slingbacks are donning the feet of so many well-dressed women. That reaffirms that our collection of sandals with back straps are not only practical and chic, they’re one of the spring shoe trends reigning supreme for this season. Yes, we’re talking about you Santorini! That’s not the only reason we love our sandals with straps on the back. Having the heel exposed is more breathable for the foot, especially when the sun is shining down all day - and who doesn’t love a little bit of flesh on show? The slingback design can also be easily adjusted to find the perfect fit. As advocates of ensuring perfectly fitting shoes, this in itself is a reason to upgrade your wardrobe with the Georgia back strap sandals. The strap around the heel is adjustable so you can make it more snug or loosen it up on hotter days. Their versatility will have you well equipped to take on the spring/summer in style.

Meet Mary Jane

Guess who everyone is talking about right now? Mary Jane! And she’s proving very popular… The Mary Jane flats everyone loved so much last season have continued to retain their must-have cult status and become another one of the key 2024 shoe trends. We’re delighted because our Mary Jane shoes for plantar fasciitis allow you to look super cute, super stylish and super comfy this season. Headed to lunch? Slip on the Osaka Mary Janes, add a wide-leg jean and tucked-in blouse - there’s no better look. There’s something so sophisticated about Mary Janes. Is it the slim silhouette...dainty toe box…or elegant ankle strap? All of them together, we say. What we love even more about the Osaka Mary Janes right now, is how they also combine the mini kitten heel summer shoe trend (spoiler alert… there’s more of that below!), so that’s two trends in one. With a hint of added height from the wedge, you can tick all the boxes for style meets functionality with a pair of Mary Jane flats.

Make it metallic

Catwalks this season were awash with high-shine metallics and we’ve revered that into the top 2024 shoe trends. The Tivoli back strap sandal is an iteration of a slingback style that’s been upgraded for summer in a shimmering metallic hue. So not only do you have a slingback, it’s the perfect color to see you through the hotter months and beyond in style, with both of the latest shoe trends ticked off. With summer slides also appearing across catwalks and magazines, Antalya is bang on trend with its gold linen sheen to flatter every skin tone. Like liquid gold for the feet… And we aren’t just talking about the color - they feel divine when worn! Simply slip them on and go. For those who like the two-strap styles, look no further than Brighton. Easy to style and dreamy to look at, the Brighton slide sandals come in two metallic iterations for a high-shine dose of your choice. Complete with a walkable platform, adjustable straps and our classic contoured footbed that can be easily removed for your custom orthotics. These metallic beauties won’t let you down - we promise.

Peep toes on view

Ladies, the summer shoe trends call for your toes to be on show! Get your pedicure booked in and have your feet looking prim and proper for the sandals of your choice. Forget high-heeled mules that you can’t walk in, instead opt for a more comfortable version in the form of slide sandals. The Palma slide sandals have a roomy toe box so you can have your toes on full display this season. Adjustable straps allow you to tighten and loosen them as you see fit, ensuring that you feel protected while showing off your colorful pedi. For those who suffer from bunions, this peep toe trend is right up your street as it offers breathability around the affected area. Plus, the adjustable straps of Palma conceal bunions and can provide relief when loosened to ensure the area isn’t too restricted. No matter if you want slides, backstraps or gladiator sandals, there’s a stylish open-toe option to help you nail this street-style favorite 2024 shoe trend. Top tip! If you aren’t a fan of having your toes on show, add a pair of socks or hosiery - while it may sound like an absolute no-go, it’s a serious go-to trend that’s sure to stick around. It looks extra adorable when worn with mini hemlines.

Mini heels are big

Speaking of mini! Go big or go home? Not this year. The latest shoe trends demand a mini heel that offers a big impact. But we’re not talking pencil-thin styles (also known as the kitten heel), instead it’s a hint of height that’s discreetly chic. Take the Monte Carlo wedge loafers for instance. As the name suggests, their part-wedge part-loafer silhouette provides you with just enough height that’s effortless for wearing all-day and standing a little taller. If you’re less of a loafer lady, there is also the classic orthotic wedge shoe which speaks of effortless sophistication and your feet won’t hurt despite being in a heel. These mini heels are a perfect partner to the minimalism trend that we’re seeing plenty of; they lie low but rank high in the functionality and style department. Wear yours with everything from skirts to pant suits. Your feet really will thank you.
