7 summer shoes that French women never leave

7 summer shoes that French women never leave

In three words: fashion, comfort and lightness.

Color block mules, minimalist sandals, rope shoes… As the summer of 2022 is in full swing, our desire for

vitality, fantasy, but also a certain amount of sexyness is increasingly felt. Because if the good weather

means the return of a lighter wardrobe, it’s also the opportunity to have fun with shoes. Between pop colors

and ultimate comfort, here are the 7 shoe trends that French women will be betting on this summer, and a

selection of models to get inspired by them.

What are the most popular summer shoes for French women?

Lace-up espadrilles

Timeless, espadrilles have the ability to pass through the ages or ephemeral fashions to become true basics

of the summer wardrobe. We choose them with laces, a detail that pushes elegance to its paroxysm by recalling

the slippers of ballerinas. All for a silhouette that is both feminine and casual.
