Finding comfortable summer shoes can be challenging. Summer is one of the hardest times to keep our feet cool and comfortable. Choosing shoes that fit well and suit our lifestyles is incredibly important. Manufacturers are waking up to the fact that we need shoes that are smart, on trend and that we can easily walk in. A new pair of shoes can lift our spirits and put a smile on our face. However a painful blister can do the reverse and ruin our day. Especially if we are on holiday and exploring the local beauty spots.
These are some of the styles I have been wearing this year.
So far this summer (fingers crossed) I have not suffered from one blister. I choose my footwear carefully. I tend to wear socks, footsies or trainer socks with my sneakers. I find that this helps to prevent blistering.
Sandals that are completely flat can put a lot of pressure on the balls of your feet, especially the joint of your big toe. This can make your feet feel tired at the end of the day. I have a pair of orthotics which I sometime slip into my flats (obviously you can’t do this with sandals).

My favourite and most comfortable shoes are Paul Green. They are not that easy to find here in the UK. Luckily the small shoe shop in our village occasionally stock a few of their styles.
