I’m not much of a heels person, but there’s something about summer that makes me want to kick off my go-to sneaks and Chelseas and slip my feet into something brighter, something bolder, something more beautiful. Summer heels are the stuff sartorial dreams are made of—the kind of thing we wear in our wildest fashion fantasies (and our most idyllic Instagrams-to-be). What better way is there to dress up a low-key tee-and-jeans combo than to slide into a pair of animal print (heeled!) mules, or to don some vibrant snakeskin pumps, or to try out some strappy iridescent beauties?

Even I, a comfort-seeker who’s almost athletically practical about what I add to my wardrobe, can’t withstand the inherent appeal of summer heels. I may be ruthlessly thoughtful about how and where I can wear something before buying it, but I’m no match at all for the myriad fantasies summer heels embed in my imagination. Not to mention, since sensible shoes have made something of a comeback in recent years, the summer heels landscape is looking comfier and more reasonable than it has in a long, long time.

The summer heels landscape is our collective, proverbial oyster. All that’s left for us to do is shop it.
