Sandals are a summer necessity, but finding the right ones can be difficult. Summer footwear must meet certain requirements. They must be comfortable, stylish, and timeless. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of the best sandals. From comfy sneakers to breezy sandals, take your pick!
1) Platform Sneakers
Platform sneakers epitomize summer. They are usually made of canvas, which is more comfortable in tropical temperatures than leather or polyester. Also, thanks to the platform sole, your feet will never be too hot.
2) Birkenstock Sandals
These sandals reappear every summer. Available in different variations, they are made of leather (lacquered) and have a minimalist touch. Birkenstock is a great choice because they are so comfortable, thanks to their specially shaped footbeds. These loafers are also great for adding a bit of contrast to an outfit.
3) Slip-on Loafer
Loafers accent both casual and dressy outfits. The slip-on design allows you to slip your feet in and go. To keep your feet comfortable all day long, choose a loafer with a breathable footbed made of shock-absorbing foam. The rubber sole texture is another feature to look for, as it helps maintain a firm footing on all surfaces.
Some summer shoes are too casual for the office, but not loafers. They are not just for work. They can be worn with pants, skirts, and dresses, especially if you choose a more traditional material like leather or suede. You can also pair loafers with weekend wear, such as cotton capri pants and tunic tops.
