What’s Kickin’ | Austin Summer Shoes

by Miss Venus

It’s a shoe lovers paradise this spring at SoLa and here’s what’s kickin’ for Austin summer shoes!


Now that the new TOMS shoes have arrived, we are kicking up our chunky heels for joy. This season, we focused on stylish comfort, perfect for the girl on the go. Thankfully, the designers agreed, giving us lots of comfy, cute soles to choose from. For the girl that likes a little lift, we’ve brought in great block heels and platforms. If you prefer to stay a bit more grounded, we suggest investing in a pair of statement flats or lace up sandals. Anything with fringe or feathers is a yes and don’t be afraid to bring your boots out to play with your sundresses. For your style convenience we’ve compiled some serious summer shoe-spiration on our Pinterest board. In the mean time, scroll down to check out our top picks and style tricks for these summer shoes.



Fringe makes feet more fun! Boho chic is it for evening wear and these fringe sandals are the perfect compliment to any summer outfit.



Don’t be afraid to let your boots out to play in the summer sun. Especially if they are fringe forward!


Embossed or cut out leather dresses up a flat with sophistication. You won’t even think twice about retiring your heels this summer.

All laces are not created equal… in heel height, that is. Lace up your heels for a comfy and secure look with these summer shoes.


Give yourself a lift with a comfortable flat-form! We love this style with all things spring.
