Put your winter blues, and shoes, aside to welcome the warm, summer days. Although a sneaker, oxfords or mules might be ideal to wear, sandals can elevate the most casual of outfits, and even provide more comfort for everyday use. But for a casual, elevated look, it is always important to remember the details: criss-cross straps. 

From leather fabrics to comfortable slip-ons, below are the trendiest sandals to wear this season.

You may have heard that the ‘90s are back, but so are the ‘70s. Prada’s Double-Strap Sandals take you back to the groovy days with their flat rectangular style and geometric elements. Unique to this shoe, the insoles come in a matching monochromatic version or in a silver metallic leather, and small leather buckles for added detail.

Graphics are important when selecting your next go-to sandal, and these Fendi Flow Sandals are full of them. With their criss-cross details, these sandals feature the Fendi “FF” motif across the ribbon bands. The “F” engraving continues throughout the show, including the sole and heel, in a vibrant yellow and black color.

Shoes that are perfect for transition from one season to the next. The Myles Sandal is a new style from Dr. Martens with an easy slip-on and thick adjustable buckle straps. This sandal is also super tough and durable thanks to its Brando leather, and will develop a worn-in vintage look overtime. 

Birkenstock Arizona Suede Leather Sandal

For those cool summer nights, the Birkenstock Arizona Suede Leather Sandal has the Arizona two strap style that is beloved by the brand but with an all-over shearling lining. The thick buckle details make it a bold style, while the soft interior fabric provides warmth and cushion. And for added comfort, this sandal is made with a cork-latex footbed.

Thom Brown’s Fisherman Sandals are the epitome of fisherman shoes, but with a Thom Brown twist. Brogue and punch-hole detailing is seen throughout the sandal that ties elegantly with the grosgrain loop tab at the heel. For a gold touch, a buckle fastening is draped on the side.

Sandals with a little bit of edge. The Versace Greca Touch Strap Sandals definitely make a statement with a black and gold Greek key pattern along the webbing and straps of the shoe. These jersey sandals also have adjustable straps for a customizable fit, and a chunky and tonal rubber sole.
