18 Must-Wear Summer Mary Jane Slippers This Season

You may be familiar with the Venetian slipper, the artisan velvet flat worn by Venetian gondoliers. While the shoes have a rich history (dating back to the 19 century), they feel surprisingly fresh and modern this summer. It may have something to do with fashion’s continued obsession with ballet and Mary Jane flats.

In fall and spring, we see Mary Jane leather flats on the runways from brands ranging from Bottega Veneta to Prada, as well as big-name designers like The Row, Khaite and Alaia . For summer 19, these shoes are made of felt, velvet and sturdy cotton canvas. The look is a one-piece Mary Jane, a one-piece espadrille, and a one-piece Venetian slipper, somehow giving the pair a classic yet stylish feel.

I see them walking around the offices of Vogue, walking around NYC, scrolling through my Instagram feeds, during this past Saint-Tropez holiday – all signs point to this style being a serious contender for the the shoe for summer. They’re flat and made of soft material, which means they check the comfort box. They’re also closed-toed, which bodes well for city streets or anyone looking for an alternative to sandals. Best of all, they come in a variety of color combinations and fabric varieties for an average price of $19, adding a cheerful personality to your summer look without breaking the bank. Wear them to the grocery store, the beach, or to work, and they’ll add a summery vibe to almost any style or outfit this season, from prairie dresses to denim shorts.
