Americana-Inspired Footwear Ready for Independence Day

There are lots of way to express one’s patriotism this Independence Day, starting with footwear.  A range of shoe brands are offering their take on the Americana theme – from classic kicks to Western boots, it’s easy to go red, white and blue.

What makes these footnotes easy to wear, is their tie-in to another Americana classic — denim. Together, these flag-waving looks make a fun fashion statement for men and women.

Keds is tapping into the flag theme with a laid-back women’s slip-on style in a stars and stripes pattern. Worn sockless, it’s a fun alternative to a pair of sandals.

For those out west for the holiday, Corral gets into the holiday spirit with its version of old glory that sweeps stripes across the shaft of a classic cowgirl boot from its Vintage Collection.

What would the holiday be without another American icon — Mickey Mouse. Disney adds the familiar face to a women’s water-friendly flip-flop.

While some brands are taking a whimsical approach to Independence Day dressing, Cole Haan goes classic with a penny moc detailed in navy leather. Wear it sockless for the ultimate in preppy dressing.

And, for those who are planning a holiday run, Brooks does a men’s running style in pops of red, white and blue.
