9 Easy Shoe Trends Celebrities Are Wearing This Summer

Allyson Payer

Celebrities wearing shoes is something we've talked about a lot less than usual this summer, as we're all wearing shoes a lot less often than usual this summer (unless they're house shoes, of course). I don't know about you, but I've noticed lately that my summer shoe collection is lacking a bit at the moment, especially when it comes to casual styles that I can do casual things in (which are the only types of things there are to do right now). 

As you might expect, celebrity-loved shoe trends are low in heels and high in comfortable, mostly flat styles this summer, which means that they're far more accessible than in other years when red carpets are a thing that celebrities often do. Instead, among the celebs below, you'll find nine trends that will also suit your summer 2020 activities (or lack thereof). Scroll to shop the trends that celebs like Zoë Kravitz, Kendall Jenner, and Emma Roberts are wearing.

Colorful Sneakers

As Winnie Harlow proves, summer is the time to bust out of the neutral rut in favor of fun sneakers that look great in the sun.

On Winnie Harlow: Puma RS-X3 Puzzle Sneakers ($110)

Nike Air Max 90 Sneakers ($120)

New Balance 574 Split Sail Sneakers ($80)

Birkenstock Sandals

Elsa Hosk can be considered a trusted resource for shoe trends, given her impeccable style. She hit the nail on the head with these Birkenstocks—they're everywhere right now.

On Elsa Hosk: Toteme top and pants; Bottega Veneta Large The Pouch Clutch ($2700); Birkenstock shoes

Birkenstock Essentials Arizona Waterproof Slide Sandals ($45)

Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed Sandals ($135)

Fisherman Sandals

Bet you didn't see this one coming, but fisherman sandals are the microtrend The Row started, and cool brands like Staud are jumping on board (no pun intended).

On Emma Roberts: Modcloth skirt

Staud Brady Cutout Leather Loafers ($375)

Hereu Sandals ($405)

Mary Jane Flats

This is a trend we've had our eye on for awhile, and it's really starting to blow up (thanks in part to The Row, again). It looks especially cool with little white socks, à la Zoë Kravitz.

On Zoë Kravitz: Saint Laurent Black Large Niki Bag ($2490); The Row shoes

Charles & Keith Two-Tone Pointed Toe Mary Jane Flats ($33)

ASOS Learn Quilted Mary Jane Ballet Flats in Green ($32)


This one might seem to come a little out of left field, but I've been spotting lots of tortoiseshell shoes on the market, by brands ranging from Saint Laurent to By Far to Topshop. It's a fresh look that goes with everything.

On Kendall Jenner: Skims Face Mask ($8); Aritzia Tiny Tank ($30); Wardrobe.NYC leggings; By Far Juju Mules ($223); Simon Miller Bend Bag ($413)

Topshop Olive Tortoiseshell Fisherman Shoes ($28)

Dolce Vita Noles City Slide Sandals ($86)


I know, slippers aren't technically outside shoes, but if you think about it, they're probably the most-worn shoe style of summer 2020, given all the time spent indoors. Mindy Kaling's Uggs and sweats outfit pretty much sums 2020 style up in a nutshell.

On Mindy Kaling: Ugg Genuine Shearling Slippers ($120)

Ugg Genuine Shearling Slippers ($120)

Flora Nikrooz Victoria Faux Fur Slipper ($20)

Toe-Ring Sandals

Toe-ring sandals, both heeled and flat, are the "ugly" shoe trend of summer 2020. You could even say that they're the new flip-flops, but there's room enough for both of them, in my opinion.

On Hailey Bieber: Drew House face mask; Are You Am I tank top; Fung Lan and Co shirt; Re/Done jeans; Bottega Veneta The Chain Cassette Bag ($3800); Carvela Goddess Sandals ($59) 

Paris Texas Leather Thong Sandals ($297)

Wandler Elza Two-Tone Leather Slingback Sandals ($158)

Sparkly Sandals

Leave it to SJP to ensure that footwear is fun, even amidst a pandemic. But just because this trend is fun, that doesn't mean it can't be comfortable, i.e. in the form of a pair of walkable flat sandals.

On Sarah Jessica Parker: SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Wallace Dress Sandals ($193)

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker Weekend Sandals ($251)

Jeffrey Campbell Jemma Slide Sandals ($49)


Last but not least, we have good old reliable flip-flops. If you don't like them, I'm sorry to inform you that they don't seem to be going anywhere. But doesn't seeing how stylish Ana de Armas looks in them make you want to wear them with a dress, or is it just me?

On Ana de Armas: Farm Rio dress; Havaianas Slim Flip Flops ($26)

TKEES Solids Flip Flops ($50)

Everlane The Leather Thong Sandals ($88)
