How is it August already?! Where did this year go? These are the questions we find ourselves asking every year as the Summer starts to draw to a close much faster than we would like; and trying to decide what shoes to buy at this time of year can be tricky… If you’re like me you‘ll probably want to be able to wear them straight away but the ‘sensible’ voice in your head will be telling you that you probably should get something that will see you through the rest of Summer and into the Autumn/Winter season.
