July is here which means we’re in the dead heat of the summer season and sandals are in daily rotation. Despite the rising temps, sandals don’t have to be the only thing one wears for the next two months.
Several brands have taken the much-loved ankle bootie style and turned it into a viable summer shoe—no socks required. They’re a fun and effortless way to change up go-to summer looks, from dresses to denim cut-offs.
Thakoon Addition has tapped into the flatform craze with a black leather cut-out upper and a cool printed watersnake platform.
Tory Burch’s office appropriate, go-with-everything Jones cut-out bootie, features an open heel and peep toe. The block heel is topped with metallic brown hardware for a little something extra.
Western hardware on Toga Pulla’s cut-out booties is contrasted with modern, metallic silver to add some flash.
For those on the go, Maison Margiela’s perforated leather bootie comes in a warm shade of camel with an easy-on, easy-off zip front closure.
Cobalt blue has been everywhere this season, and Lucky Brand’s Moroccan blue Lubov cut-out booties with a stacked heel are perfect for weekend get-togethers. While a casual jeans and T-shirt look would be elevated with Rebecca Minkoff’s chic blush cut-out booties with a rounded pointy toe.
