The 7 Most Coveted Sandals For Summer

700x400_blog_header

Sandals are pretty much the greatest thing to happen to your feet. Don’t get us wrong, we love our boots, heels, flats, sneakers…and well, pretty much all of our shoes, but when you debut your first pair of sandals for the season, you’re committing to more carefree weekend adventuring, more dining al fresco, more time outside just because, and of course, all the great warm weather looks you can finally show off. Essentially, you’re kicking off summer!

So get excited and then clear a little room in your shoe closet – we’ve got all of the must-have styles for summer.

 

You Know the Espadrille

Espadrilles have made a come-back and for good reason. From flats to lace-ups, leather and suede to canvas, and pops of color to metallic, we’re not talking about your mother’s go-to slip-ons anymore.

 

Block Party

If you want to look fabulously stylish, but also want to be able to strut your stuff from 9 to 5 (and then some!), city sandals are for you. With block heels to keep you supported, these shoes are the perfect summer staple to take you from work to rooftop drinks.

 

Slide into Summer

It’s time to upgrade your casual sandal pick from flip flops to a grown-up pool slide. This versatile style is great for everyday and is easy to toss in your bag to go from poolside to lunch or just for a quick stroll to check out the local scene.

 

 Feel-Good Footbeds

Sandals should feel good and you should love how they look too. While “footbed sandals” may not sound sexy and they’re designed to make your feet feel fabulous, you’ll see them in almost every fashion magazine and on every celebrity out there – plus, you won’t be at a loss for great styles to choose from. And when these become your favorites, you can thank us later.

 

Wow-worthy Wedges

Whether you grab a casual pair for a backyard barbecue or a more refined style for a day at the office, a wedge is always a good choice. They pair well with pretty much any summer outfit, elongate the leg, and are a great choice for those of us that don’t love pumps but still want a heel.  

 

All Tied Up

Adding a little sass to your summer looks, we are loving lace-ups this season. Pair with cropped pants or a pencil skirt for work, or with a shorter hemline or cutoffs for the weekends, these gladiator-inspired looks are perfect for summer outfits.

 

Get Strappy

Neutral, strappy sandals have been a wardrobe must-have for some time now, but we’re loving some of the new styles that touch on hot trends for the season – like suede, metallic and block heels.
