It’s that time of year in Milwaukee where the days get longer, temperatures heat up, and we can finally show off our pedicures in stylish sandals.

When selecting your wardrobe or next nail polish color, keep the Pantone Spring/Summer 2017 color palette in mind. Don’t shy away from color! The color of the year is Greenery. It’s fresh & vibrant and goes with a variety of other colors. So if green nail polish isn’t your thing, opt for any of the other colors this season! From a bold Flame orange to a neutral Hazelnut, there’s a shade for everyone.

Before we dive into this season’s shoe trends, let’s talk wardrobe! Here are some quick tips straight from the runway:

  • Do you have a favorite floral sundress or skirt from last year? Wear it again! Florals are a classic staple in spring & summer.
  • Think pink lemonade! Accent your favorite outfit with different shades of pink or yellow, which are HOT colors for the season.
  • Go girly in ruffles! You can go all out with a layered ruffle skirt or keep it simple with a flowy, ruffled top.
  • Mix it up in stripes! You can keep it simple with a classic blue & white button-down. If you’re feeling bold, mix striped pieces within the same color combination for a fun look.

Now, let’s walk through this season’s shoe trends!

Perfected Perforations

Geometric laser cuts add an edge to classic styles, all while giving your feet some extra ventilation! We love how cool (literally) these shoes look. You’ll love these styles when celebrating Summerfest’s 50th anniversary!

Caged In

If you loved last year’s gladiator sandal, you’ll love this year’s ghillie sandal. A lace-up feature looks ultra-chic while adding practical adjustability for the perfect fit! Again, letting some skin show will help keep your feet cool & dry. These styles go great with cropped jeans for brunch at your favorite spot!

Rose Garden

Think of this muted pink as the new nude. If pink isn’t your thing, opt for a suede or nubuck sandal that looks more neutral. You can also go for a metallic shade for a fun look. Pair any of these styles with your favorite floral dress for a trendy twist on date night!

Good Sport

This is one of our favorites from past seasons and it’s continuing strong this spring & beyond. White soles give your shoes & sandals a fresh look. Wear these styles with a blazer & jeans to the office or rock them with a bomber jacket at a Brewers tailgate!

Gilded Age

Update your neutrals with metallics! Mix metallic features with texture for an edgy look or let your toes do the talking in metallic sandals! These will go with just about anything & everything in your closet so you can enjoy all that Milwaukee has to offer in style!

No matter what you’re up to this season, we’ve got the shoe that will keep you looking good & your feet feeling great! Stop in at any of our 3 locations to shop the latest trends and get measured by a Fit Specialist.
