No matter your style, there is a summer shoe out there for you – you just have to go out there and find it! So whether you like the look of the seventies style Mule, or would prefer to kick it in a comfy pair of Birkenstock lookalikes – we’ve got 8 budget-friendly footwear that we’re sure you’ll be lusting after this summer!*

Flat sandal

Tan Flat Sandals

You’ll see many variations of the flat sandal on the high street this summer, there’s the minimalist strappy, the gladiator (yes, it’s back!) or the bejewelled sandal - the choice is yours!

Sports sandal

The sports luxe trend has been going strong these last few years and has re-emerged again this summer in a new range of sports sandals. So if you loved wearing this trend the first time around, then why not go all out and pick up this colourful flatform pair from Primark? If you’d rather go for something a little more subtle, then these black mesh sandals are perfect - they’re only £8 too!


Stand out this summer by opting for some metallic sandals like these from Primark! Metallic tones really stand out when paired with darker pieces, or can help to edge up bright prints or colours – so it’s really a win-win!


Reddish Sandals

Sticking with the seventies trend, this pair of tan mules from F&F Tesco will help you to raise the style stakes this summer. As well as being great to look at, they’re incredibly versatile too. No, seriously, you could take them on holiday with you, wear them on an evening out and could even get away with them for work (depending on your workplace of course). Not bad for just £25, eh?


If you’re looking for a shoe that will give you height, look amazing and be comfortable at the same time – then the flatform is your guy! We particularly like the look of this black block pair from F&F at Tesco, pairing a statement shoe like this with a plain outfit will instantly help to revitalise it. And they’re only £18 – result!

Birkenstock look-alikes

Metallic Sandal

Slip-on sandals are set to make a triumphant return this summer after being the hit of the season last year. Just think of Birkenstocks only without the hefty price tag – these from H&M are a chic pair and they’re only £14.99!

Pointed flat

For a quirky take on the humble flat, go for a pointed pair like these from F&F at Tesco. This pastel pair have a rather Audrey Hepburn feel to them, so embrace your inner on-screen goddess and rock them with a pair of black trousers or a full skirt.

Slip-on pumps

Investing in slip-on trainers, like these from H&M, can be a great way of adding an effortless touch of style to an outfit. This pair would look on point worn simply with jeans, or some shorts.
