It’s safe to say that our heels have taken a back seat over the last year, with work-from-home slides and slipper-inspired sandals now staples in our shoe repertoire. Good news then that this summer’s wave of flats are as stylish as they are practical, with buys to suit every occasion.
Be it an afternoon at the polo or an evening meal at LPM, superior straps reign supreme this season, with both minimal and maximal styles to suit all tastes. Chunky sandals are most definitely having a moment, with designers including Gucci and Roger Vivier pulling out all the stops. There are also plenty of fresh takes on the easy slip-on slide – Bottega is leading the pack here with its striped Terry shamrock-green drop top of every fashion editor’s wish list this season. Crafted in Italy from soft terry towelling, they prove that that the notoriously comfortable ergonomic shoe is now a fashion item.
Elsewhere, By Far is incorporating our favourite SS21 prints through its footwear – our pick being a pair of tie dye retro flats destined to be teamed with acid wash denim. In need of a pedicure? Fear not, Bottega’s closed-toe rubber slingback sandals come with a side dose of practicality.
For those searching for something romantic with a kitsch twist, dainty sandals pack a punch this season with extra embellishments including studs at Valentino and tulle at Emilio Pucci, who collaborated with Japanese designer Tomo Koizumi to create voluminous white slides that are the perfect addition to an LBD.
