I Am 99.9% Certain These Will Be the Most Popular Sandals This Summer

Over the past 18 months, we have seen a shift towards practicality in fashion, and this is seen most acutely with footwear. We need our shoes to be able to take us on countless laps of the park without causing us any trouble, and so high heels have been universally retired. Fashion brands have for several seasons been bringing us sturdy, responsible shoes—the kind of styles that you’d try to run away from when finding shoes at Clarks in sixth grade. Think T-bar loafers, chunky lace-ups, and fisherman sandals. 

The Row and Gabriella Hearst both are adored for their discreet and quiet take on luxury fashion, and although both tend to shy away from anything too flashy or trend-driven, they both have a habit of dictating the silhouettes that we’ll be gravitating towards. Both have created beautiful caged leather sandals in both ivory and black, making the humble fisherman sandal the most sought-after sandal for this summer. Like Tevas, their appeal is that they are practical walking shoes and will go with almost any summer outfit.

The styles by The Row and Gabriella Hearst have been yoyo-ing in and out of stock, however, it is a style that is slowly trickling into the high street too. Zara, always quick to respond to a cult item, has created several fisherman sandals for $70.
