Our Favourite Footwear Styles of SS21

Leopard print white trainers

Now that the summer season is beginning to draw to a close, it’s likely that most of us are thinking about packing away our summer sandal collection to make way for more sensible styles and protect our feet from the elements. Our SS21 footwear collection has been one of our favourite ranges that we have created here at Gabor Shoes, which is why we’ll be dedicating this blog post to reminiscing on the collection’s key pieces that we’re certain will stay in our wardrobe for years to come. So, before you dust off your winter boots for another year, let us inspire you to make the most of the last days of the summer season with four of our SS21 favourites.

Wedge Summer Shoes

Our wedge summer shoes make an ideal option for those who wish to ditch the flats and add a little extra height to their footwear. A more comfortable alternative to a standard pair of high heels, many of our chic wedge shoes feature a thick rubber sole which ensures that you are provided with a high level of support, whether they are for everyday wear or for a special occasion. With an excellent selection of bold and understated designs in our SS21 collection, it’s easier than ever to match and contrast your footwear with your clothing to create a look you love.

Wedges add a sophisticated, feminine aesthetic to any ensemble. They can be worn effortlessly with a midi-length dress or skirt to achieve a look that is both on-trend and flattering. We adore how @beautyinthecotswolds has chosen to style our Twirl Women’s Wedge Heel Sandals by pairing them with eye-catching floaty floral dresses in blue and red. By throwing on a light summer jacket and sun hat, this creates a stylish look that is still suitable for daywear, even if the weather isn’t the greatest!

Animal Print Women’s Shoes

In SS21, we took a walk on the wild side by featuring animal print in our collection of summer sandals and trainers. From striking leopard print to subtle snake print, each easy-to-wear design was made to incorporate into a huge array of outfits including daywear and evening styles. Animal print fabrics are timeless, meaning that the pieces in our range are sure to be a key element of your footwear collection for years to come. 

Animal print features in our collection in an array of different ways, but as our animal print shoes are super-easy to style, they can be worn with neutral and bold colours. We love the way that @beautifuleveryday_uk pairs her white Quench trainers featuring flashes of leopard print with a simple slouchy loungewear set in green for an off-duty look which we think is super-chic. @simplystyledcat demonstrates how easy it is to dress up these casual trainers by pairing them with structured denim dungarees and a pretty embroidered blouse, ideal for an evening out or a catch up with friends. If you’re looking for a pair of leopard trainers of your own, why not try our Aston Ladies Trainers?

A Pop of Colour

A real customer favourite during SS21 were our Wilma Women’s Casual Trainers. Featuring classic white leather contrasted with vibrant suede stripes, they truly are a statement pair of shoes that are impossible to grow tired of. Adding colour into your wardrobe is a must for the summer season, and these versatile designs make it easier than ever to incorporate brighter hues into a simple or neutral outfit. Their soft leather linings provide comfort and breathability, with a chunky sole supporting your every step. 

When it comes to styling colourful trainers, @rebeccaavalentina gets it just right by styling hers with an array of colourful floral midi and mini dresses, creating an even more eye-catching look. They can also be incorporated into your smarter clothing options, as @southcoast_style demonstrates by wearing her Wilma trainers with a stunning maxi gown and matching blazer. As they pair with so many different styles, our colourful trainers make an excellent addition to any wardrobe.

Transitional Pieces

We also made sure to add in a few transitional pieces to our SS21 range that are ideal to be worn during the end of the summer months and all the way into autumn. Our stylish heeled boots provide a warmer option that adds an element of elegance to any outfit, whether you choose to wear them with a dress or a skirt with tights or your favourite pair of jeans. A practical yet on-trend piece, our knee-high varieties make a great transition piece for your collection.

When it comes to styling our Verano Women’s Long Boots, @so_phia achieves an aesthetic that is super sophisticated. With a skirt, tights and cosy black coat, she creates a look that is perfect for the office as well as those after-work social gatherings. The soft suede material of the boots is durable and protects your feet from cooler temperatures, making them the perfect style staple for in-between seasons.

If you aren’t ready to let the summer go just yet, there are plenty of shoes and boots from our SS21 collection still available on our website for you to incorporate into your wardrobe. We also have designs from our winter range for you to prepare for the colder months, so why not see what’s new?
