The Best Summer 2021 Shoe Trends You Need

Updated: Aug 31, 2023

The weather is getting warmer, terrasses have opened in Montreal, and bright colored fashion is in the air! With that comes an expectation for a STRONG shoe game - so here are the hottest 2021 shoe trends that you need to be wearing. Kind of biased since I'm only choosing trends that I want to wear, but I would love to hear any additions you might have to the list in the comments!



Now mules have been a trend for a couple of years now, but in 2021, brands are getting more creative and funky with what they're releasing. Braided heels have been slowly climbing up the trending charts as well, especially in for the Summer. So stay ahead of the game with a pair similar to these white braided mules!

Square Toe Heels

There's just something about a square toe finish to a heel that makes it so classy, yet trendy. This style has been all the rage in the late 2010s and early 2020s and I am definitely here for it!

Colorful Sneakers

Sure, a classic white sneaker will never be out of trend, but after being cooped up for 2 years because of Covid, it's safe to say we're all excited to be able to express ourselves with color! These sneakers help to elevate any basic outfit and will let you stand out in a crowd.

Flip Flop/Thong Heels

We may never know the correct term for these heels, but what we do know is they SCREAM Y2K! I don't know how to explain it other than these are the epitome of hot girl summer 2021.

Flatforms & Platforms

Speaking of Y2K, flatform styles are back! They're essentially chunky slide sandals - think Lizzie McGuire era, ya feel?

Anything Bottega Veneta Releases

Pretty sure we wish we were all living the life of "Fendi on my body, but my feet is in Bottega." Bottega Veneta has been killing the shoe game lately with every new product they release - so many duplicates have risen already so you can shop the look for way less!


Here are some of my brand recommendations to shop for these trendy shoes:
