Hey there, OTBT wanderers!

Summertime is officially here, and it’s time for you to thrive! Whether you’re off on your wildest off-the-beaten-track adventure or simply embarking on a search for your own unique summer style, we encourage you to march forward and experience all the season has to offer!

Need a little bit of style inspo? You’re in luck! Today we’re discussing our five fave footwear trends for summer, and showing you how you can incorporate them into your warm-weather wardrobe for some cute and comfy OTBT-inspired looks!

Let's get started!

OTBT's Meridian espadrille sneakers for women are a great way to take on this woven trend.


Here’s the drill on the espadrille: it’s a shoe everyone can wear! As woven bottoms are making a splash on the fashion landscape this season, we’re starting to see more espadrille sandals and wedges all over Instagram, styled with cute, beachy outfits that give us all the summer wanderlust.

We here at OTBT have our own favorite espadrille style for the season, the Meridian sneaker, a.k.a. the fashion sneaker of your dreams. The height is worth all of the hype, and its comfy, memory foam padding makes it a style savvy choice for those who are daunted by the height of heels. But in the end, it’s the espadrille bottom that’s key in making this a trendy and stylish summer 2019 shoe.

This lightweight Nova women's flatform sandal from OTBT takes on the sport chic trend in as a stylish, comfortable shoe.

Lightweight Sport Bottoms

Let’s get movin’ and groovin’. Our modern lifestyle is busy, busy, busy, and it keeps us on our feet all day. Those who dare not compromise style for comfort soon find it hard to keep up this crusade, and their feet pay the price. But they don’t have to. Lightweight sport bottom shoes are a big trend for summer 2019, and they’re the perfect compromise between style and comfort.

With this in mind, we at OTBT designed the Nova, a super-cute lightweight sport bottom shoe that’ll keep you comfy on all your escapades. This OTBT pick fits right in to that sporty chic style that’s on the rise this summer, and with four trendy colors to pick from, you’ll never run out of options.

Our iconic Bushnell women's wedge sandals are now available in this trendy snakeskin print for summer 2019.

Snake Print

Sssssss… do you hear that? It’s the trend that’s slithering its way to the top of the summer trend charts. Snakeskin print is quite literally all over everything, from your favorite leather bag down to your choice of footwear. This must-have pattern can be mixed and matched with your favorite colors and neutrals, adding a pop of life to an otherwise basic summer look.

And speaking of snakeskin, our ever popular Bushnell wedge is now available in this trendy print. The jet black bands complimented by the snake skin toe strap give this classic style an edgy yet wearable vibe. It’s the perfect statement shoe for anyone looking to shake things up this season.

Take on the jeweled accent trend with OTBT's Cahoot platform wedge sandals for women.

Jeweled Accents

Ever wondered which accent is the hottest? Fashion experts say it's jewels! This trendy embellishment is a coveted one this summer season, and it makes the perfect complement for any festival ready outfit. As we see the accent adorning travel outfits across the globe, one thing is made overwhelmingly clear: jewels are a girl’s best friend.

Stitched and studded in all its bohemian glory, our Cahoot wedge sandals are a great way to embrace this trend with a fun statement shoe. And if you’re looking to give the long layered necklaces and bold statement rings a rest, these platform wedges are an effortlessly chic way to get that jeweled look you crave. Minimalist, neutral outfits paired with these bold beauties will keep you trend savvy and boho happy all season long.

OTBT's Locate is a comfortable women's flat sandal that takes on the lace-up trend in a stylish way.


Get up in your getup, and lace ‘em up. The lace-up shoe is back and better than ever. Varying anywhere from your typical lace-up sandal to gladiator styling with a twist, these shoes create a rugged, boho vibe that we are fully supporting for this summer concert season.

To take this trend head on, we created the Locate, comfy thong sandals with side lace-up detailing that we’re seriously crushing on. Paired with your fave summer two-piece set or that swing skirt that makes you want to dance through life, you’ll be living life to the fashion fullest in lace-up shoes like these.
