Summer Shoe Trends 2020 // From Square toe sandals to Block heels // ft. Flashybox

Hi Loves,

I love shoes (as much as the next person) but lately it seems that comfort and quarantine has made an adjustment to my, collectively the shoe department. Everywhere I go has left me wearing sweats, a t shirt, and a pair of slide sandals and do I regret my style choices ─  HELL NAW ! But as I count the days, I am immediately switching my socks & sandals for the trendiest of shoes of 2020.

As 2020 settles into warm weather and sunny days, I think its safe to say that the trends for shoes has shifted to Bold prints and comfortable silhouettes. ( Bye bye high heels, and say hello to kitten heels, mules, and sneakers).

Let’s talk heels for a second, Being that this is the year of canceling; I hereby cancel uncomfortable footwear for this season and the seasons to come. Instead of sky high stilettos it looks like the shoe trends have reverted back to the simple styles of the 90’S ── and lets face it the era of fashion can do no wrong. Read on to see the bold selections that I have chosen from Flashybox, and I can assure you, they are all worth trying.

Town square on your knee heeled sandals |

90’s trends are thriving! I don’t know how many times I have discussed these styles of shoes, but here I go again; the square toe sandals is a MUST in fashion. When it comes to these simplistic yet sexy shoes, they are easily the most comfortable heel I ever styled ─ they can be dressed up or paired with jeans and a t shirt; they check all the boxes for being the best trend there is comfort, style, silhouette, comfort, comfort, and did I mention comfort. These shoes are great if you’re just trying out this style for the first time and if it’s not I recommend buying more in various of colors. These shoes were $40 even and being that other brands like Bogetta Veneta, Raid, and Chanel all carry the same style but not the same pricing this from Cape Robbin is a definite steal.

Negative High Heel Strappy Ankle Sandal

Okay, everything that I said about high heels doesn’t apply to these heels. When it comes to heels what do you look for comfort? color? height? fit? Well to answer all those question Yes this heel has all those factors ─ and don’t let the heel height fool you, these shoes are comfortable and friendly on the arch. strappy sandals have always been a trend and as for bold ─ well just look at the shoe itself.

Camryn Transparent Vogue Block Heel ─ Mules

Clear heels have been around for a minute now, so I can say that I’m a but late to the trend ─ but now that I finally have a pair I am in LOVE! Kylie Jenner was the first person I seen with these mules by Balenciaga, right there ─ I searched high and low for these shoes, and finally I have them. I love how these shoes are snug on the foot, that means that your foot won’t be sliding against the transparent siding. I ordered these shoes in a 8.5 and it is best to buy a size up, just for fit. These came in blue, pink, and lime green and while all these colors scream summer, nude was the perfect choice.

Beaded Slide Sandal

Slides have taken over my shoe collection, and while they have been in my reach since the year started, these beaded sandals are another kinda reach. I love these sandals they are super comfortable, and easy to dress, but it adds a bit of flavor to your outfit like no other pair of slides could. The black interior makes for a chic appearance while the beads adds the glamour. I can’t wait to style these babies. Oh! they were only $25
