Summer's Best Sandals Will Inspire You to Be Bold With Your Shoe Game
Pack away your little black boots and make some room for a gorgeous pair of sandals. In anticipation of spending more time outside in the warm months ahead, we're keen on adding bold and colourful sandals to our summer wardrobes. Whether you're looking for walking shoes or evening mules, we've handpicked 20 beautiful pairs that are deserving of your debut.
For summer 2021, there are a few distinct silhouettes that are popular with designers and retailers. The thong sandal is the nostalgic favourite of the summer, with hints of late-'90s and early-2000s style. We are musing over designs by Miista, By Far, and The Row. Padded and quilted shoes are also very popular, especially since Bottega Veneta's quilted accessories charmed the fashion world. For a wearable but in-style alternative, we are loving fun mules that feature spirals, checker prints, and yin-and-yang signs from Paloma Wool and Lisa Says Gah. And for a more practical, comfortable, but equally cute choice, we'd go for sandals from Teva, Vagabond, and Birkenstock.
