 Footwear Blog Summer Trends 2021: 

What are the biggest trends in footwear this summer season?

Dardano’s Shoes, your favorite Footwear Destination, has you covered.

Here is a list of the must have footwear styles/categories for the season:

 

Outdoor and Active Lifestyle: 

It’s clear why this trend exploded last year: we needed to socially distance, so why not get outside and be active? 

The Outdoor and Active Lifestyle trend is continuing upward as we move into the warmer seasons

In many cases, including my own, our old trusty hiking shoes or often neglected athletic shoes have become the everyday shoe now.

Everyone has been looking for ways to become more active lately, but not everyone realizes that having the proper footwear to do so makes these activities even more enjoyable.

Do you like to explore the great outdoors or achieve your fitness goals around town?

Looking for shoes that are light and fast, or stable and supportive?

We have the shoes you need to be comfortable every step of the way. 

Check out some of our favorite brands including, Altra, Brooks, Hoka, Keen, Salomon, and New Balance.

Hands free footwear:

Sometimes we just need an easy pair of shoes!

Now more than ever before people are looking for shoes that they can just slip into and go, or kick off and relax. We have seen a huge increase in customers looking for slip on and backless styles of shoes.

Maybe it’s to run a quick errand or to casually hang around, having a good pair of ready-to-go shoes is definitely an essential to your footwear wardrobe.

 Let’s face it, we are all busy. Having a pair of shoes that is quick to put on and comfortable to run around in, takes one more step out of an already busy day.

Fashion Sneakers:

Sneakers are here to stay this summer. A fashionable favorite that we can dress up and down.

Sneakers aren’t just for wearing with a pair of denim jeans or shorts these days. You will see sneakers becoming a fashion staple all around you. Women are wearing them with dresses and men are wearing them with slacks.

Fashionable sneakers reflect your energetic lifestyle and keep you comfortable everywhere you go!

Summer Slippers:

Wait… Summer Slippers?   Absolutely!

We are still seeing a huge demand for slippers as we move into summer, but not necessarily in the traditional warm and cozy sense.

The “summer slippers” you need are supportive, backless sandals or flip flops. Look to brands like Birkenstock, Vionic, Olukai, Oofos, or Hoka and you will see exactly what we are talking about.

Even in the summer we still need supportive shoes to give our feet some much needed relief when we aren’t working.

These will be your comfy companions around the house after work or when you are relaxing on a day off!

 

Make sure your footwear wardrobe is geared up and ready to go for summer. Dardano’s Shoes looks forward to helping you find the shoes you need.

 

As always, feel free to come see us in-store, give us a call, or contact us by text, chat or email, if we can help in any way!
