Still have a a few pair of furry winter boots cluttering up your closet?  Now is the time to overhaul your shoe wardrobe, update and refresh for the Summer season.  Take stock of what is in your closet: items in need of repair, and what footwear should be donated or consigned.  Now is your chance to update your style with a few new pair of cute & comfy summer shoe staples.  Our beloved Takara, the owner of Soko Shoe Boutique in Oak Park, has been bringing in the chicest selection for going on 3 years now:

Beat the heat in comfort & stye with these bold navy & white shoes with ankle cuff.  Live life on the wedge in a molded cork, blonde wood & leather t -strap sandal from Tsubo.  

Try the impossible to resist colorful Dansko clogs $ 80.  A low profile gladiator wedge Naots are perfect for long walks, and go with everything in silvery metallic leather, $156.

These fabulously on-trend peep toe sandals are so chic, and camel color, wow!  I love a seriously walkable heel: the Miz Mooz red & tan sandals, and Dansko Maryjanes in cool green, $130. are drop dead cute.  As are a cool pair of teal, Fly London lug sole wedges, oh, decisions.

How time flies while you're shoe shopping, especially at Soko.  Take a step in the right direction and head over todayIf you crave more fashion news and advice, follow me on Twitter and Facebook, and subscribe to my monthly Styling Newsletter: you can sign up by visiting my website:
