Brought to you by Opera Lane.
Comfort is key this summer.
While most balmy evenings would have us reaching for the vertiginous stilettoes (or at least a decent wedge heel) this year’s focus on outdoor drinking and dining calls for some serious consideration when it comes to footwear.
The smart money is on flats.
Whether you go for a sleek suede espadrille (they add instant sex appeal to ankles, FYI) or a classic leather sandal, keeping your feet on the ground will guarantee you’re the last one standing at garden barbecues and in beer gardens.
Remember; outdoor seating is often at a premium so you could end up standing for most of your night out – there’s no need to be a hero in heels when you could party in glorious comfort and avoid the throbbing feet the next morning.
