Whether you're a shoe aficionado or a footwear passive, we all need shoes. From four inch stilettos and peep toe sandals, to men's brogues and children's first trainers, never underestimate the power of a good pair of shoes.
Step into the season at the forefront of fashion with some statement shoes. All eyes were on fancy footwear at fashion week, so there is no better time to indulge in a pair of striking shoes. Women can strut their stuff in multicoloured high heels and colour popping lace ups; pick a patterned dress to play with prints, or a pastel co-ord for some sugary fun. Men can step away from black in metallic trainers and printed lace-ups, which are perfect with drainpipe jeans or chinos. Kiddies can have all the fun in footwear with everything from character illustrated trainers to jewelled sandals.
We all need a dose of practical in our footwear collections, but our sensible shoes don't need to be boring. Women can find comfort in platform sandals, ranging from flatforms with cutouts and glitter detailing, to wedge heels. Pair both with summer dresses, boyfriend jeans or maxi skirts. Casual Fridays and weekends spell trainer time for men and women. Look to pastel shades to wear with this season's streetwear, or opt for white retro classics for some fashion editor style. Sliders are the shoes of the summer, perfect for beside the pool or on the beach, but look to Chelsea boots and loafers for cooler days.
