The best raffia shoes to buy for the summer

As the weather begins to turn, the hunt for the perfect summer accessories is on. What’s first on our list? A raffia shoe. Yes, raffia, the versatile straw-like natural fiber that is traditionally derived from dried palm fronds and woven into everyday items, from homewares to accessories. You can usually pair this fiber with your favorite basket bag or your best summer sun hat, but this season the raffia trend is getting a major reboot in the form of standout footwear.

Designers have embraced the trend, using a plethora of weaving, twisting, braiding and even dyeing techniques to create some of the best shoe styles imaginable. Looking for a sandal that’s comfortable enough to hit the sites on your next summer adventure? Look no further than a sporty platform with double interlocking straps. Need a suitable work option when in-person meetings resume? A menswear-inspired loafer is ideal for a day at the office. Or just planning your next big night out on the town? Get ready to dance the night away in an on-trend woven platform pump. The options are endless, ensuring a fit for every personal style and destination.
