7 Types of Sandals to Invest in This Summer

Summer: the season of outdoor dining, rosé, and, unfortunately, sweaty feet. When the heat kicks in closed-toe shoes are not an option, but this year’s crop of sandals will make you forget what an ankle boot even looks like. Check out our comprehensive guide to the seven must-have sandals every woman should have stocked in her closet this season.

THE DAY-TO-NIGHT BLOCK HEEL

These are the sandals you’ll wear all through Summer and even deep into fall. They. Go. With. Everything. The low, comfy heel will work with you all day, from the office to happy hour to dinner and finally to an I-shouldn’t-be-doing-this-but-who-cares nightcap.

THE PAJAMA SANDAL

The babouche had a moment this spring, but this season swap it out for its cousin, the pajama sandal.

PLATFORM CLOGS

We know, we know—the clog reinvents itself every season; there’s an “it” version every year. Two years ago it was Prada and last summer everyone wore the knotted Saint Laurents. 2016 belongs to this curvaceous Alexander McQueen runway heel, complete with embroidered flowers.

POOL SLIDES

Pool slides are usually a riff on nasty flip flops you’ve owned for entirely too long. Upgrade your style with this sophisticated slide from Mango, priced so well that you won’t mind if you’re wearing them when you’re “accidentally” shoved in the pool.
