Now that we’re all in agreement that shorts are the best heatwave-proof option, the only thing left to figure out is what to wear them with. The obvious answers are tank tops, loose shirts, simple tees or swimwear, but I’m talking specifically about footwear. I find that my usual high-top trainers don’t make much sense with shorts, and as much as I love cowboy boots, I’m no Daisy Duke. In a bid to solve this fashion conundrum, I sifted through socials and scoured the new-in sections of some of our favourite brands to determine the very best shoes to wear with shorts, and I have the conclusive results.
So whether you’ve bought a pair of denim shorts, holiday-ready linen, micro hot pants or sensible culottes, consider this your definitive guide to always getting the shoe styling right.
