Summer is almost done but that doesn’t mean you’re too late to update your summer slides and sandals.
We’ve all been there, enjoying a music festival, spontaneous beach outing or running around town in 35+ heat in totally unsuitable footwear. Is there anything more uncomfortable than restricting shoes in the height of summer?
Below are my top picks for summer sandals, flip-flops, slides… what ever you want to call them. Let me know if there’s something you like.
Sonia Rosa by Nelson Made $229
Nelson Made predominantly makes their sandals in Melbourne and they understand Australian fashion and style. This sophisticated silhouette features soft tubular straps and a small square heel. And the pastel pink is very on-trend.
Arizona big buckle by Birkenstock $265
Yep, Birkenstocks are trendy! It wouldn’t be a sandal list without a mainstay of the sandal market, Birkenstock. These natural oiled leather sandals in blue, cognac and black (with premium leather foot bed) will see you striding out in comfort.
House party sandal by Gorman $103.20
Everybody loves a summer house party and these are the sandals to wear on those hot nights. The casual neoprene sandal offers a pop of colour that will provide the interest as you dance the night away.
Clooney brandy leather crossed strap buckle slide by Wittner $160
Anything with the Clooney-name in it must have a level of class and these sandals are no exception. These sandals are perfect for more dressy occasions that require something with more class than a beach flip-flop.
Tempo by Edward Meller $199
Designer Filippo Raphael has created this opulent footwear to transform everyday outfits. I love that the focus here is on the sandal, meaning this is a statement piece in itself.
Logo slide by Camilla and Marc $149
Sometimes you just need a relaxed sandal. This navy flat logo slide from Camilla and Marc offers comfort, ease of use (if that’s a thing in the sandal world) while still remaining stylish.
Woven footbed slide by Seed $99.95
The woven design is a real style feature of this sandal and makes it an option for both formal and informal settings. The double buckle and natural colouring add to its trendiness.
Margot sandal by Country Road $129
This sandal is very Summer 2020. Ugly and chunky! Featuring a hair-on leather strap and fixed D-ring hardware, the leather is sourced from sustainable and ethical suppliers, something Country Road are doing more of.
There’s no greater feeling in the midst of a scorching summer than wearing sandals that offer comfort AND style.
For so long we had to endure bland sandals and do our best to create a style around them with other clothing. Now sandals have been put centre stage and I love it.
I hope I’ve provided something for everyone, suitable for all situations over our long, hot Australian summer. And most importantly your feet will thank you too.
