Summer in the City

Fashion Summer 2019

Sandals are often an afterthought because of their association with summer holiday leisurewear. They’re an item that is more about convenience, relaxation and comfort than a true fashion choice. We often prefer trainers or loafers, anything that could cover the feet as much as possible.

While a tropical holiday provides the perfect reason to buy a pair, this new breed of sandals is entirely different from a pair picked up at the souvenir shop or Havaianas stuffed into a suitcase. They’re built for more than the beach. They’re still not as versatile as trainers, and perhaps never will be, but these new sandals have designs that let you get away with wearing them for more than two weeks of the year. Besides, sandals have been a part of humanity’s wardrobe for thousands of years.

They started as necessities and now find themselves considered a luxury option. Whether worn on simple errands like walking the dog or rocked as a statement piece, sandals aren’t going away. If you’re looking to dip your toes into the ever-expanding catalogue of footwear choices, sandals might be the next one worth tackling.
