Summer footwear: Pedicures Optional as Espadrilles Shine


London, 19th May 2011 - Twenga, the open shopping platform with the biggest choice online, reveals the most popular trends in flip flops, sandals and espadrilles, this summer’s favourites.

As Ugg has built its success on winter boots, some may be surprised to see the brand among the top 3 in flip flops.  Only Superdry and Nike are more popular. Off-white shades are the most in demand, followed by more daring purple then classic blue.

Brits like to feel glamorous on the beach and afterwards too, evident in the sandal materials of choice – familiar rubber holds its place at #2, but flanked by satin and silk.  Colours are adventurous too, with turquoise leading the way, followed by orange and silver.

Espadrilles are among this month’s most searched-for summer shoes so it’s important to be right on trend.  That means canvas, with leather and suede behind.  It means TOMS, Havaïanas or H by Hudsons, and it means striking colours – pink, navy and purple.
