Shoes That Won’t Hurt Your Feet or Your Budget

Adorable and Afforable (1)

Finding adorable and affordable shoes for your closet can be a pain. Especially in the summer time because we all know flip flops are not exactly known for their supportive soles. Here at Glik’s we actually have a large selection of shoes that will support your feet and your wallet. cc

City Classified Shoes | $29

 City Classified Shoes Comfort Andro Wedge Heels in Tan were made for your busy lifestyle.  They look like your classic micro wedge heel, but really they are jam packed with comfort. With a lined and padded footbed and a soft foam padding you’ll be able to wear these shoes all day!

Sperry Top Sider | $60

I love Espadrilles. Love them. But typically they have little to no sole or cushioning. This is where Sperry saves the day. Almost all their shoes have a memory foam footbed, ya know the stuff that people make mattresses out of? Yeah, these shoes are so comfy you could basically sleep on them.

Mia Shoes | $30

The Mia Shoes Lynn Strappy Sandals in Black and in Cognac are such a treat for a pair of strappy sandals. These gladiator style shoes have a super padded rubber outsole and footbed. Cute and actually a wearable sandal?! Get one in both colors, because these are going to be your summer staple.

Adorable and Afforable

Sanuk Yoga Sandals | $38

Okay, these shoes are kind of a no brainer with a name with the word yoga in it. You can also get these fun knitted sling style uppers in so many styles or colors. The footbed is made out of yoga mats, so you can definitely skip the yoga class, and get your Namaste on with the Sanuk Yoga Sandals.

Qupid Shoes | $20

Qupid shoes are great for their comfortability factor, since they all have a lightly cushioned footbed and a low price point. But my favorite Qupid Shoes lately are the Comfy Banded Slides that come in Carmel, Black, and White. These Comfy shoes are an ideal summer footwear option, they give you that simple sandal silhouette with a comfortable footbed.

With this selection of shoes at Glik’s you can have comfortable, trendy shoe styles without breaking your budget. For more styling tips and ideas be sure to check out Gliks’ Instagram! Happy shopping ya’ll!

Trend Alert: Frayed Jeans

Western Bootie
Fray is the New Fringe

The past few seasons the fringe trend has been a huge hit! Adding a twist to the fringe world, they have added fringe denim, which is known as released hem, raw hem, or even frayed jeans.  The frayed hem doesn’t stop at the jeans. We are seeing frayed shorts, skirts and tops too. The released hem trend isn’t just made on a skinny jean either, but also on a flared denim. One of our favorite brands, Flying Monkey, came out with a cropped skinny jean that features a raw hem and are a must have staple piece for this season!

Rules of the Frayed Jeans:

  1. The frayed hem should hit right at or above the ankle.
  2. Wear your raw hem jeans with pointy pumps, strappy sandals, ballet flats, casual sneakers, or ankle boots.
  3. Only wear one or two raw hem peices at a time, too much fraying could be an overkill.

Frayed Jeans

We paired our released hem Flying Monkey Jeans with an Elan Fringe Sweater giving this outfit the double fray look. Keeping up with all of the trends this season, we layered our sweater over a Criss-Cross Neck Tee. And topping off our look, we paired our raw hem jeans with our Volatile Haisley Western Ankle Bootie to show off that frayed hem.

Simply Southern

You want to make sure to pack a variety of outfits for all the various activities that will be going on during spring break! Most of the week you will be hanging out on the beach in your favorite Amuse swim suit with a cover up and some nights you might be hanging out at the club, which requires a dressier outfit like a romper with a pair of heels. Other days you might just want to run around in your Simply Southern tees with a pair of denim shorts and Reef sandals.

Oh and don’t forget to pack your koozies, sunglasses and sunscreen for those hot and sunny days. Make sure to always have a cool drink in your hand and stay protected by the sun. It’s never fun being the burnt, dehydrated lobster at spring break.

Koozies

For days that consist of just hanging out on the beach, a beach blanket will be the perfect item to bring. The beach blanket is thicker than a towel and wide enough for more than just one person. You can easily roll this blanket up and put it in your bag while traveling around the beach.Spring Break Beach Blanket

Happy Feet|Must-Have Summer Sandals and Flip Flops

I have to admit, I’m the kind of girl who makes shoe contact before I make eye contact. In my opinion, there’s almost no greater fashion crime than ruining a killer outfit with a lack luster pair of shoes. I don’t want any of you lovely ladies settling for less when it comes to your summer sandals and flip flops, so I’ve called on the help of Tavi, one of our shoe buyers at Glik’s, to provide some shopping inspiration and share her must-have footwear choices for the season.

Sandals

These feminine, multicolored sandals are just what you need to take any outfit to the next level this season. Featuring a tie-dye inspired pattern and gold chains, these summer sandals by Bamboo are a necessity.

Embellished Sandals

If your outfit is more casual and laid-back, then these Dirty Laundry Sling Back Sandals are the perfect option for you. Whether you’re taking a trip to the zoo or having a shopping day with your besties, you’ll feel cute and comfy all day long.

Chevron Sandals

For dressy occasions that require a little more flair, these Multi Color Beaded Sandals by Not Rated are the way to go. The heavily embellished upper features an array of colors that provide versatility when pairing these summer sandals with any outfit.

Flip Flops

Every girl needs a trusty pair of flip flops for relaxed days when you just don’t feel like getting dolled up. However, just because you’re having a lazy day doesn’t mean you have to completely sacrifice your style. These Mimosa Flip Flops by Roxy can add a fun pop of color to any dull outfit.

Roxy Flip Flops

I appreciate a comfortable pair of flip flops almost as much as I appreciate a killer pair of heels. These Sanuk Yoga Chakra Sandals are both vegan and vegetarian friendly and provide a blister-free fit. Seriously, invest in a pair of Sanuks this summer. Your feet will thank you.
