The 10 Best Sandals
The sun has started to make a regular appearance, so it's time to get your summer footwear options sorted
Monday 02 April 2012
Get the global-traveller look that is sweeping the catwalks just now, with these flat, red leather sandals embellished with a chunky orangetop-stitch detail.
2. Nanette Lepore
£270, 020 7221 8889
Stride into the style of the Seventies with this pair of super-elevated cork wedges. The retro heel material is offset by modern neons.
Warning! Transparent sandals are recommended only for those with pretty feet. The colour and materials of this pair make for thoroughly modern footwear.
4. New Look
£14.99, 0844 499 6690
These paper-flat and relatively delicate sandals look brilliant in the colour of the season: orange. Keep the fake tan minimal so that your skin doesn't clash with your shoes.
5. Pedro Garcia
Good-quality Spanish leather makes these a pair of Jesus sandals with a difference. Wear them with everything from maxi-skirts to jeans and they'll last for years.
6. Opening Ceremony
This über-cool label has transformed a classic sandal style by crafting it in fashionable fluorescent yellow (orange is also available if that's more your thing).
7. Nine West
More Seventies nostalgia here, what with the chunky heel and platform sole, decidedly racy colour palette and rainbow-hued feather print.
8. Yves Saint Laurent
Who says white footwear has to be clinical? These jelly sandals embellished with a trio of starfish are anything but. The whimsical detail will get you through summer.
A tough gladiator sandal for that metropolitan look. The zip-up back adds gleaming hardware and is also practical – 15 minutes spent buckling up each morning isn't clever.
The Prada shoe this season can be flat, high or wedge-heeled. The unifying factor is that all reference flames, lipstick and classic car fins in suitably saccharine colours.
