Canvas sneakers will be your best bet because they’re so breathable and will keep you cool. But if you want something a bit more classy, you can always wear leather sneakers or those in the lace-up style.

If you want a unique and fresh look, try pairing white sneakers with wide-leg linen pants. You’ll be comfortable and look stylish too.

Slides

Because these shoes are typically made from breathable and lightweight material, they’re ideal if you’re planning to spend time in the sun.

The right pair of slides will look fantastic with linen pants, and you can add a bit of glamour to your outfit by choosing slide sandals that have a slight heel to them. (This is also great if you want to look a bit taller than you really are)

Patterned slide sandals make for a cute and fun look if that’s what you’re trying to achieve.

For a pretty but more toned-down look, pair a lace top and high-waisted linen pants with black slides. You’ll look sophisticated without trying too hard and be as comfortable as can be.

Block Heels

If you like that deliberately messy look, you’ll appreciate a pair of block heels combined with linen pants.

You would be better off choosing block heels in neutral colors like black, brown, white, and cream. They can go with any colored linen pants and won’t make your outfit’s colors clash with each other.

Block heels are ideal whether you’re going to hang out with friends and enjoy cocktails while watching the sun go down or attending a more formal event with work colleagues. You also get them in different heel sizes, so you can go as high or low as you’re comfortable with.

Flats

Then you should definitely try flats. Not only are they very friendly towards your feet, but they can look amazing with a pair of linen pants.

You get flats in all kinds of materials, from leather to fabric and sometimes even straw. It all depends on the kind of material you like and what look you’re trying to achieve.

Generally, when wearing flats with your linen pants, you should go for a pair that is made from breathable material and complements the pants’ color.

Brown strappy sandals worn with beige linen pants will help you nail a chic, summer-loving look. If you want a more festive vibe, go for flats in bright colors.

Mules

These shoes are easy to slip on and off, so they’re fantastic if you’re in a hurry or think you’ll be on your feet a lot and plan to take small breaks going barefoot for a bit.

However, mules are more formal than flats or slide sandals, so they can be perfect for fancier events. They look especially great with beige linen suits if you want to look classy and professional. Choose mules that have a bit of a heel to add more sophistication to your outfit.

Espadrilles

When it comes to pairing espadrilles with linen pants, the best option is typically a pair with platform heels. Not only do they give you some height, but they also look really good in any situation.

A pair of white platform espadrilles and breezy linen pants make for a chic and elegant look that doesn’t look too formal or too casual. You can even try a pair of short linen shorts with these shoes and still look amazing.
