It’s That Time Again: Sandal Season

Are you a sandal man?

Turns out, your year 9 geography teacher was onto something. Sandals, yes sandals, are where it’s at this season. Whether your shoe of choice is a simple slide, a criss-cross or a leather number, sandals are dominating the footwear stakes this summer.

They’re not, though, without controversy. Sure, all the major houses have been walking them at the fashion weeks just past, but IRL, opinion is divided.

There are some, it seems, who believe toes should be free, that footwear should be breezy-as. And others who are vehemently opposed to their liberation. Like Tay Tay says, haters gonna hate.

This, though, is the summer of love. So, for those of you in the easy, breezy, beautiful camp, what should your sandlas of choice be this season? There are pool slides a plenty, but we’re on the hunt for something that will go the distance, something that will really take you places.

Sandals like Birkenstocks have long been a summer staple (and, for some, thanks to the handy addition of socks, a winter one also). And then there’s Teva, the groover sandal that really made a mark last season thanks to Solange and Co.

If you’re a first timer, there are some simple hacks to make sure you ease in oh-so-gently. Stick to shades you know you wear on the regular. Be it monochromatic or navy or even a classic khaki, the trick here is to go for sandals you won’t hesitate reaching for of a morning.

How to...

Style them with a simple t-shirt and shorts. Or, make like Biebs, and team your sandals with socks (hey, it scored him Hailey Baldwin, right?). Pair leather sandals with slim leg trousers that you’ve cuffed, if only just slightly. Caution, though: there are good time ahead. Pared-back leather numbers call for a lightweight linen suit and the Amalfi Coast.

(Editor’s note: There’s no shame, either, in a pedicure.)
