With summer literally just around the corner, there's no better excuse to invest in a new pair of shoes. Now that it's nice and warm, it's high time to expose your toes and take on this season's hottest sandal trends, so pack away your ankle boots, take your trainers off and get aboard this summer's sandal train now!Last year, it became all about Birkenstocks, sliders and seriously comfty footwear. 'The rise of the ugly shoe' meant that we threw out our delicate, strappy sandals and made way for chunky-soled, thick-strapped shoes that looked seriously practical and started to look suspiciously like what was in your Gran's shoedrobe. This season, that trend is going nowhere fast. From Burberry's dad sandals to Birkenstocks on the Houghton catwalk, the fashion world is still totally obsessed with functional flats, even making way for Velcro straps and spongy soles. Make sure to tap into this trend with the uber-edgy sliders flooding the high street. We are loving Adidas' ponyhair slip ons and are still seriously crushing on everything jelly at Juju.But it's not all about sensible sliders this summer. The lace-up flats that saw us through spring in style have made a mark on this season too. Whether tied up to your ankle or all the way up your calf in serious gladiator style, everyone stylish will be rocking a lace-up in the sun. If you want to take a more feminine stance with your sandals this summer, then you should definitely join the lace-up brigade.The only shoe rivalling gladiators as the biggest footwear of summer? Clogs. Yep that's right. Ever since Prada sent it's ladies down the catwalk in chunky, wooden-soled sandals, the fashion world has started a love affair with the contraversial shoe and the high street has jumped on board.And if you're in the market for something a little more dressy, then worry not we have got you covered in the heel department too. From T-bar caged courts to brightly coloured block heel strappies, your perfect night-out footwear is in our edit, so what are you waiting for? Come and check it out.By Amy de Klerk

Team with ripped jeans and a leather jacket, or if the weather is kind a floral playsuit.To help you with your ankle boot mission we’ve rounded up some of the best new suede boot styles on the high street now.

Slipping into a pair of sky-high stilettos makes you feel ready for anything whether that is an interview for that dream job, a big date, or a night out on the tiles. What we also love about a pair of trusty heels is their ability to completely elevate the most simple of outfits.
