Splurge Vs Steal: Summer Shoes

21 Dec 2017

It's that time of year where you might feel like your bank account is haemorrhaging money right?

It's that time of year where you might feel like your bank account is haemorrhaging money right?

But the season has also changed so you need to update your wardrobe to suit the warmer temperatures.

Now I have NO problems with recommending you spend good money on shoes. They go on your feet, which you kinda need to function everyday, so I think it's important to always buy the best shoes you can afford.

I also understand that what you can afford is a big variable for everyone, so

this post is designed to help you find some gorgeous summer sandals, no matter what your budget!

Let's look at three summer shoe styles, and then how to get the "spend" or the "splurge" version from our amazing footwear retailers right here at Shore City...


The mule is definitely one of the biggest shoe trends we're seeing come through for summer, and because this is the summer of bright colours, why not try something like this...

The Coloured Mule from Glassons

SHOP THE SHOES: Mi Piaci Solana Mules $240 | Glassons Strappy Mule $49.99


These are arguably the most versatile shoe of the summer. Anything metallic and flat will work with almost any outfit in the warmer months.

The trick is just to find a specific metallic colour and fit that you like the most for you and I guarantee you won't take them off until April! Here's where to start with your splurge vs steal options...

Metallic Flats From Hannahs

SHOP THE SHOES: Merchant (formerly Overland) "Tempah" casual sandal $159.90 | Hannahs (Pulp brand) "Insieme" flats $79.95


These shoes will practically go with anything! You've got the freshness of white, but the neutral of black that we all love. You can go splurge or steal, AND flat or heel, you choose the shoe that works best for you...

Black And White Slides From Country Road
SHOP THE SHOES: Mi Piaci "Mink" dress sandal $260.00 | Country Road "Poppy" fringe slides $89.90

So there you have three different summer shoe styles, and with different price points depending on your budget.

Until Next Time, Happy Shopping
