17 Summer Travel Shoes Inspired by Instagram
Instagram is our new favorite place to find cute travel shoes.
If you like to spend some of your lunch break (or, in my case, all of it) scrolling through your feed for your daily dose of fashion and wanderlust inspiration, you’ve probably already stumbled upon ihavethisthingwithfloors (both the hashtag and the account). It’s a collection of posts dedicated to the world’s most beautiful and colorful floors that also happens to serve up some major footwear goals along the way.
The handle, which now has over 800K followers, was launched in June 2014 by Pien van Wijmen, Joshua Jansen, and Edith Beurskens in Amsterdam. Their goal is simple: “When feet meet nice floors, take a selfeet.” The results, in some cases, are an absolute work of art — who knew floor mosaics and gravel could be so mesmerizing?
Of course, an integral part of a “selfeet” is the shoes, so fashion-forward Instagrammers around the world also use the hashtag as an opportunity to show off some seriously fabulous footwear.
Here, shop the coolest and boldest pairs of sandals, heels, and sneakers we could find on #ihavethisthingwithfloors. And then prepare yourself for a mass influx of heart-eye emojis.
