I Was on a Summer-Shoe-Shopping Hiatus, But These 9 Pairs Brought Me Back

Being the diligent fashion person that I am, I already had a solid idea of the summer accessories I’d be splurging on ahead of the season. Strappy “naked” sandals topped the list, and of course, colorful mules and cushy platform flip-flops (made popular by The Row) undoubtedly had spots on there too. By June, I had ordered most of the styles on my to-buy list, and by the start of July, they were already in my closet. All that buying put some strain on my wallet, so I figured a self-imposed shopping hiatus was in order. That was until I scoped out the latest drop from our very own in-house collection. 

Launched this month, the newest crop of Who What Wear sandals is what I’d think would be a podiatrist’s dream. Featuring foot-friendly details like a stacked sole or a low kitten heel, they’re the type of cute summer shoes that make the fantasy of spontaneous long walks in the park a reality—no backup pair of sneakers required. Priced under $100, each style is pretty affordable, too. These reasons are precisely why my (very brief) shopping hiatus has been on temporary hold—but keeping it real here, it’s totally worth it. Read ahead to check out all of the styles from the new drop.

This creamy off-white color is everything I’ve dreamed of and more.

Powder blue is definitely in the class of new neutrals.

I’m pretty sure these will withstand all your spontaneous mile-long walks this season.

Yep, you also need them in white.

Tell me these aren’t podiatrist-friendly.

Easy mules are one of my tried-and-true styles.

Pair these with loose denim jeans for an elevated take on casual.
