Summer is the season for socialising. As well as being the most popular time of year for proms, weddings and christenings, it’s also a time when friends and families come together for drinks and barbeques. It’s helpful to have a variety of size 17 footwear at your disposal, so you can be ready for every occasion.

Formals are the obvious choice for proms and parties. Oxfords are always a safe choice. They are a timeless, classic dress shoe with a plain look that’s sleeker than a brogue. Named after the iconic university, an Oxford shoe is characterised by shoelace eyelet tabs that are attached under the vamp, a feature that is called ‘closed lacing’. Black is considered the most formal colour, although brown is becoming more popular, and works well with a navy suit.

If you’re looking for something more relaxed and informal, then a trainer-type style is probably the way to go. Over the last few years, trainers have been thrust into the mainstream and are no longer the preserve of athletes, skaters and teenage boys. They’re now widely acceptable in most aspects of life, including the work place and nights out.

Sandals are the ideal choice for holidays, beach days and BBQs. They’re perfect in warmer weather, as they allow air to circulate and let your feet breathe. Flip flops and sliders are great for wearing by the pool as they’re easy to slip on and off.
