The 10 Best Sandals

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

The sun has started to make a regular appearance, so it's time to get your summer footwear options sorted

1. ASOS

£32, asos.com

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.

3. Topshop

£38, topshop.com

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

£240, net-a-porter.com

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

£265, bstorelondon.com

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

£115, ninewest.com

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

£205, ysl.com

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.

9. Zara

£69.99, zara.com

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.

10. Prada

£890, prada.com

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.
