We know what it’s like. The working week is over, and the thought of putting on another pair of uncomfortable shoes nearly brings on a panic attack. Luckily, you can still maintain your hard earned fashion cred with our selection of the hottest footwear trends for the weekend.
The Slider, or ‘ugly shoe’ trend is one of the hottest looks this summer. Taking cue from the classic Adidas and Nike one strap plastic sports sandal, and the strap detail of the classic Birkenstock, brands like Céline, Chloé and Balenciaga have done variations of this shoe. To minimise the old lady factor, wear them with structured pieces and avoid knee length skirts unless they are extremely modern. Whether you are a fan or not, you can’t deny just how comfy these shoes are and hence, how perfect they are for the weekend… we might just own a pair.

Valentino showed ankle strap versions of the flat espadrille, and Chanel made them the seasons cult favourite’s with their monogram slipper version. One thing is definite, espadrilles are a weekend staple. One of the most comfy shoe designs available, you can be sure that all the aches and pains of the working week will be long forgotten when floating around on a pair of these. For a bohemian feel, you can wear them with chic lace shorts, a loose cotton vest and a straw fedora. If you want something a bit more dressy, choose a wedge design.

The Ankle Strap Heel
Weekends are all about fun, relaxation…and often a bit of a partying. We know that nothing makes us feel more confident than a pair of killer (comfortable) heels, so this list would not be complete without the addition of one of the sexiest looks this summer – The Minimalist Heel.
Along with countless detailed designs, the Spring Summer runways were full of simple, elegant, ankle strap heels. These shoes are feminine and are flattering on almost everybody. If heels are not for you, then look for a pair with a low block heel. Due to their simple design they are extremely versatile and we predict they’ll be sticking around through winter too.
