As a shopping writer, I’m always looking for heels that can pull double-duty in my wardrobe. I only have so much space for my shoe collection in my very tiny New York City apartment, so versatility, quality, and whether they fall in line with summer 2022’s biggest shoe trends are all deciding factors when it comes to making any shoe purchase, especially if my preferred pairor pairs—is on the pricier side. So you can imagine why I find both the Mares Suede Platform Espadrilles and the Rosy Quilted Leather Sling Back Pumps from Bruno Magli so, well, worth the money. 

Both pairs of heels are easy to style and bound to fit all of your summer shoe needs. The summery pair of espadrilles, which retail for $250 and come in two shadesa navy blue and an off-white ecru hue--go with just about everything else in my closet, from summer dresses to my favorite jeans-and-a-tee looks. Better yet, the luxurious suede material and the combination of a 70mm platform and a 100mm wedge heel requires next to no breaking in, so they’re great for all-day (and all-night) wear. The slingback heels, meanwhile, retail for $350 and are an amazing option for any number of summer weddings that you have coming up on your calender this season. They’re made from a buttery-soft leather that is sure to see you through hours of dancing, and they’re available to shop in three shades: a pale powder blue, a classic black, and an off-white nude hue, so they’ll basically match any dress that you were thinking of wearing. 

In case you’re unfamiliar with the high-end Italian brand, here’s everything you need to know before you buy: Bruno Magli was founded in 1936 in Bologna, Italy, and specializes in creating luxurious, handcrafted footwear. They have since expanded to design a selection of trendy handbags and other smaller accessories, but their range of heels and flats is still my personal favorite from the brand. Their very latest summer shoe collection is full of warm weather-friendly styles that will fit with the rest of the pieces in your wardrobe, no matter your personal style. 

If you’re considering investing in a pair, Bruno Magli’s site also offers a simple buy-now-pay-later option courtesy of Klarna, which means that rather than paying the entire price of the shoes up-front in one go, you can instead choose to pay in four much smaller payments over time. It’s an easy way to keep your spending goals on track and still have the ability to buy that pair of heels you’ve been eyeing. Happy shopping!
