Shoes to wear with capris

If you’re wearing capris, your shoes should be flat and not too high. You don’t want to wear anything that’s going to make it hard for you to walk and keep your balance.

Flip flops are a bad idea because they can be uncomfortable and risky if they have a platform or heel. Sandals are also a bad idea because they’re likely to hurt your feet if they aren’t made of soft material and have a proper arch support.

The best shoes for capris are ballet flats, loafers, oxfords, mules, sneaker wedges (like the ones pictured above), and loafers. The best thing about these shoes is that their soles have enough cushioning to help absorb shock but not so much cushioning that they look like they belong in the closet instead of on your feet!

Capris are tricky, as they can shorten the legs. Wear them with the wrong pair of shoes, and you will look stumpy straight away!

Let’s find out which shoes are good to wear with capris and which shoes should be avoided.

When Wearing Capris Or Cropped Trousers Stay Away From These Shoes:

  • Bulky sneakers with socks
  • Clogs
  • Loafers
  • Oxfords
  • Shoes with thick soles
  • Shoes with thick, wide straps
  • Clunky shoes
  • Any heavy shoe that weighs you down.

Sandals With Ankle Straps Go Well With Capris

Ankle strap sandals are free, aerated and expose some skin that helps to lengthen the leg. If you don’t want flat sandals, then any lace-up sandals are going to fit. Choose a basic t-strap or several straps but make sure the sandal looks light and airy to go with the capris breezy, summery look and cropped trousers. A trendy pointy-toe pump strengthens the capris look and the cropped trousers. When you wear them with capris, a nice, high-heel sandal adds a sexy touch. These Gabor Anna 2 wedge ankle strap sandals go extremely well with Capris.
