Hang Up Your Trainers! Here’s what you should be wearing in spring/summer 2024

Sportswear behemoths Nike and Adidas have been making hay for the last few years as the world has fully embraced the ‘sneaker’ trend. It’s not just sportswear stores that have been flogging them but also high-end boutiques, global fashion focused websites and resellers. We’ve all got more trainers than we know what to do with. So what now? Spring ’24 is all about the bare(ish) foot. Think tanned tootsies with a glossy pedicure in nude tones and simply add a sandal or mesh ballet pump. High, midi or flat: you choose according to your lifestyle.

High Heels

We vowed that after Covid that we’d never wear a heel again but that was before we tried on the Melissa sandal. Secured around the ankle with a tonal strap and a softly padded footbed, you’ll last for hours at a wedding, at the raves or dancing on the tables – we promise! Perfect for more dressy occasions, we’d wear ours with tailored suiting or a beautifully cut coat dress.

Midi Heels

Bottega Veneta’s collection of midi-heeled mules have been a big hit with influencers and the fash-pack but at over £600 a pair, we’re far more comfortable with the Emmett at £165.00. Super-cool worn with wide leg pants or cargo trousers, these are the high heel rejector’s dream!


Hermes-inspired sliders are always a winner with cropped denim and an oversized shirt, or team them with a maxi dress or floor-skimming skirt for a more feminine vibe. The Kerryn in nude works well with a sun-tanned foot whereas the black is more forgiving if you’ve not hit the beach yet this year.

Mesh Ballet Pumps

Marmite, right? They’re certainly not for everyone but we LOVE them. Alaia set the bar high with their Japanese-inspired fishnet flats so we were delighted to find our own version called the Pia at a fraction of the price! One ‘trend driven’ style in our footwear arsenal is enough each season and, for SS24, this is THE ONE! Make sure your pedi is fresh for max impact.
