I Can't Stop Staring at These 18 Perfect Summer Shoes by KRISTEN NICHOLS
Last year, I traveled to Australian Fashion Week for the first time and while I was there, I was introduced to a number of incredible brands that continue to leave me captivated. From seeing stunning fashion shows like the one at Christopher Esber to visiting showrooms in Sydney to discover the collections of other designers, the unique point of view Australian fashion brands have left a big impression on me. Here, designers are pros at creating beautiful pieces with modern details, but also an easiness that makes them very wearable. While there's no denying their expertise with beachwear and resort wear, shoes are another place where they shine. From strappy heels to minimal flats, their beautiful designs are ones I have stocked in my closet and can't stop talking about. Here, discover some of my favorite Australian shoe brands.

With an eye for minimal silhouettes ranging from wrap sandals to strappy heels, consider these the timeless shoes you'll have in your closet for years and years. The brand is a personal favorite and I own two pairs of the slingback flats—they're a wardrobe staple and I can attest that they go with practically anything.
