Your guide to choosing the perfect pair of sandals

Posted on by Scott Evans

Sandals are one of the many reasons why people look forward to summer.

A pair of sandals is the ultimate definition of having your cake and eating it, too. You get the comfort of walking around almost barefoot while feeling confident that your feet are protected.

In this article, we share our top tips to help find the right pair of sandals for summers to come!

TIP ONE: WHAT IS THEIR PURPOSE?

If you're looking for a new pair of sandals, ask yourself: what is their purpose?

Have a think about where and why you'll be wearing them — this will help narrow down your choices. Consider whether you'll be wearing them for a casual day out, to the office or to an evening event. Each of these scenarios need a particular sandal design.

TIP TWO: IT’S ALL ABOUT COMFORT

Comfort is an essential factor to consider before buying any pair of shoes and sandals are no exception.

Sandals come in a variety of designs some flat, others with a small heel. Make sure to choose a style and heel height that is comfortable for you to wear.

TIP THREE: SIZE DOES MATTER

The ideal pair of sandals should have a little space at the end of the foot bed.

Leave wiggle room to ensure that your heel doesn’t hang out of the shoe. However, you should also make sure that the shoe is not so big that your foot slips around as this will put too much strain on your feet and back.

TIP FOUR: VERSATILITY IS KEY

Nowadays, it’s paramount to invest in a good pair of sandals that can be worn on more than one occasion. They have earned the status of being multipurpose footwear that can be worn to both formal and casual events.

We recommend purchasing a pair of sandals that complement your wardrobe to ensure you get the most out of them.

Here are a few of our staff’s favourite sandals:

The Samia Heel

Embodying a sleek aesthetic, our Samia Heel Sandals are designed with a soft leather thong-strap with an on-trend squared toe-shape and a 5.5cm kitten heel.

Pair them with long skirts or denim for that effortless yet stylish look.
