    A couple of days ago, we revealed this summer’s best-selling dresses, and to be honest, they were a little predictable, tapping into this season’s biggest trends, from linen to florals.

    Now new stats from show the top four shoes and I promise you didn’t see the first one coming. Scroll down to find out and shop the style.

    The Free People toe-loop sandals

    First seen on the runway at Thakoon in SS17, the trend has hit the high-street with users of the app opting for styles from Free People as worn by Hues of White and Fashion Landscape, whilst We Are Twinset have opted for styles from high-street brand Topshop.

    As seen on Emma Hill, these chic mules are a big hit as they literally go with everything, from linen suits to shirt dresses and a t-shirt and jeans combo. There are clearly a lot of minimalists out there.

    The Superga espadrilles platform trainers

    Rounding off the list at number four is a slightly more casual option, courtesy of Superga. These aren’t your classic white canvas trainers though, but rather their summer alternative, with an espadrille twist, as seen on Mossonyi.

    And with this summer’s heatwave looking to last another few weeks, it’s definitely not a bad shout to invest in these styles, especially as they are relatively timeless so you’ll be able to wear them again for spring/summer 2019. Happy shopping.
