Lana by BCBGeneration
Wedding on the agenda? We feel ya—in fact, Abby says, “I am invited to 12 weddings this year! I found the shoe that fits every dress code.” The denim striped upper of this hot heel makes it just neutral enough to go with any wedding outfit; for example, we love the way it looks with Abby’s floral dress!

We truly adore this heel’s stylish pointed toe and 3-7/8″ wrapped stiletto heel, and the clear sides make it even more trend right. However, if you need a couple more styles to rock this wedding season, check out our recent wedding shoe blog!


Sirena from Steven By Steve Madden
If you like to live life on the wedge, then you need the Sirena! Anna says, “I chose my shoe because it’s a great spring and summer staple that goes well with almost everything! A little height gives a boost of confidence.” The Sirena showcases a 4-1/2″ jute-wrapped wedge heel with a 1-1/2″ front platform—hello, instant style transformation!

In addition to its height, this amazing smooth leatherwedge boasts an adjustable buckled ankle strap and—trend alert!—a cool cutout design. Not to mention we love Anna’s corduroy dress; sunshine shades make any outfit ten times cuter, and they make it easy to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall.


Memory Realmspeed by Fila
When it comes to this sneaker, comfort comes first—it features a breathable mesh upper, front bungee laces for easy on/off, a Memory Foam footbed and an EVA midsole! Becky says, “This shoe is perfect for a day spent running errands or playing at the park with my boys. It’s comfy but on trend.” Additionally, it flaunts a durable rubber traction sole to stay on top of your game.

Ready to log miles? Try styling this sneaker with leggings and an athletic hoodie like Becky! This combo works well for everything from training at the gym to relaxing at home. Plus, coral tops the list of trending spring and summer colors!


Crest Rope Fray by Sperry Top-Sider
This reliable slip-on from Sperry Top-Sider a breathable canvas fabric upper with raw-edged detailing that adds a touch of edge to any outfit. Not sure how to wear this cute kick, though? Try styling it with a sage green utility jacket and skinnies; according to Danielle, “Slip-on sneakers should definitely have a place in your wardrobe and happen to look perfect with a pair of skinnies. Feel free to play around with fun colors and prints, too!”

Not only does this versatile style work as a slip-on, but also, it comes with optional laces! Plus, comfort never goes out of style, and this shoe flaunts a breathable DRI-LEX footbed cover that wicks away moisture as well as a Memory Foam footbed for cushioning and arch support.


Kendel from Steven By Steve Madden
Look no further—we found a wedge that works for all kinds of occasions! Kelly says, “Whether I’m going shopping with the girls or running errands, this shoe is my go-to. It is fashionable yet comfortable.” We feel the same way; from the suede leather upper to the adjustable buckled slingback strap, this wedge keeps us coming back for more!

Kelly styled this pretty wedge with a white lace top and a floral kimono. We love this combo, especially because pastel blue and crochet soared to the top of the list of major trends this year! The destructed denim ties this outfit together, making it versatile and perfect for various events.


Breathe Trainer by Under Armour
A healthier you starts with a fresh pair of shoes!
According to our web merchant, Pepsi, “Fitness is a focus this year. I wanted a functional and stylish shoe that I can wear in the gym or with my favorite jeans!” We love how Pepsi added a touch of style to her workout look with a simple pop of color—purple remains a big color trend for summer 2019—as well as with these attention-grabbing leggings and a classic puffer vest.

As for her shoes, the Breathe Trainer by Under Armour knocks it out of the park; from the stretch mesh upper with elasticized laces to the full-length EVA midsole cushioning, this sneaker defines comfort. Oh, let’s not forget about the removable, die-cut EVA footbed—yes, please!
