Splurge Vs Steal : 10 Shoes You Need for Spring/Summer 

As a Canadian fashionista, I have been waiting for the arrival of nice weather, so I can break out my heels and sandals! 

I have put together this post to show you my top 10 shoes you need for the Spring/Summer season. I love a nice designer item, but we all can’t afford these luxury pieces, so I’ve added a “Splurge” & “Steal” example for each shoe.

  1. Black Pumps – these are a must have in every woman’s closet, no matter what season it is! Black pumps scream confidence, sophistication and sexiness.  

    Splurge: Christian Louboutin – So Kate $675 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – High Reputation $31.99

  2. Ankle Strap Sandal – These “barely-there” ankle strap heels go with just about everything, work with every body type and make your legs appear longer and leaner.  

    Splurge: Stuart Weitzman – Nudist $531.54 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – Icon $26.99

  3. Wedge – Did you know the first pair of wedges were crafted out of wine-bottle corks, in the 1930s by Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo? (Little fashion history lol) Wedges give you the height of regular heels but adds more stability and comfort.  

    Splurge: Valentino – Multicolour Espadrille Wedge $645 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – Tropicana $34.99

  4. Ballet Flat – The effortlessly stylish run-around shoe. Go for basic neutrals or a bright colour as your statement piece. 

    Splurge: Valentino – Rockstud Caged Ballerina Flat $995 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – Fashion Elite $28.99

  5. Animal Print Heel – Take a walk on the wild side with a pair of animal print heels! These will give your outfit an edgy flair.  

    Splurge: Kurt Geiger – Britton $640.42 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – Reign of Style $129

  6. Casual Sneaker – A fashionable sneaker is the perfect casual shoe. A white tee, distressed jeans and a sneaker is a great casual weekend outfit. 

    Splurge: Christian Louboutin – Louis Junior Spikes Sneakers $895 • Steal: Converse – Chuck Taylor Classic $50

  7. Neon Statement Heel – Add a POP of colour to your shoe collection! Neon heels can add some flare to your outfit, when used as a statement piece.  

    Splurge: Christian Louboutin – Iriza $675 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – High Reputation $31.99

  8. Flat Sandal – The staple summer shoe, to show off those pretty pedis!   

    Splurge: Gucci – Ursala $1,146.34 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – Gold Resort $27.99

  9. Floral Print – Floral print is a huge trend for spring and summer! This print will add a nice feminine touch to any outfit.  

    Splurge: Charlotte Olympia – Sue $1,018.26 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – Delilah $29.99

  10. Pastel Heel – Pastels are another spring trend; wear these for a soft, feminine touch. Check out my post ‘How To Wear Pastels’ to see how you can pair these.  

    Splurge: Versace – $1,100 • Steal: Lola Shoetique – City Soiree $37.99
