Summer Shoe Report: The Best Pieces and Trends at Atlantic Station

Even during the summer, you can’t go barefoot all the time. Luckily, this year’s summer shoe trends feature graphic, colorful and playful designs that will boost your mood…and your height. Read on for our favorite styles at Atlantic Station this season.


This season’s two most popular silhouettes could not be more different! Step into platform slides for a daytime casual look, then slip on strappy sandals to transition your outfit from day to night.

If you want to take the looks even further, go for a pair of sandals with extreme height (sometimes called “flatform” sandals). You can also rock heels so strappy, they wrap up and around your leg!

On the flipside, if you’re looking for a classic shoe that will carry you through multiple summer seasons, DSW has all the summer essentials from Crocs to Tevas to Birkenstocks.


Journeys is known for casual-cool skater vibes and shoes you can wear into the ground. Besides carrying converse in every color under the sun, the store offers seasonal trends like slip-on skate shoes.

Head to Journeys if you’re looking for a sneaker that’s vibrant, patterned and utterly unique. Take, for example, national park-themed high-top Converse, which would complement any casual summer ‘fit with ease. Shoppers can also find vibrant Vans, Adidas, New Balance and Puma shoes in a rainbow of colors and designs.

If you want to add extra spice to your wardrobe, pick up a pair of Dirty Laundry Liberty Loafers, which will level up your next going out look.


Expect shoes from Nike to be sleek and understated. The monochrome look is especially trendy right now, which men and women alike can rock in white, black and even bright red.

You can’t go wrong with a vintage-inspired, colorful sneaker. Styles range from the Jordan MA2 to the SB Zoom Blazer.

Nike also offers cutting-edge athletic technology in the season’s trendiest colors. For example, Nike’s biggest summer drops are the brand-new colors of the Air Max, which will effortlessly take you from gym to backyard barbecue. The dizzying array of styles ensures there’s an Air Max for everyone.


Like Nike, The Athlete’s Foot is your one-stop shop for supportive and trendy footwear. The store carries everyone’s favorite tennis shoe brands, from Adidas and Reebok to New Balance and Asics.

Playing off one of the season’s hottest fashion trends, The Athlete’s Foot carries several iterations of platform tennis shoes. Check out New Balance’s collab with Jaden Smith for a funky option, called the speckled Vision Racer, which toes the line between trendy and timeless. Fila even carries all-white sneaks with 2 ¼-inch sole!

No matter where you fill your cart, Atlantic Station’s shopping district will ensure you walk away in style.
