7 Sandal Trends to Know This Summer

Summer is the season for sandals, and it is time to invest in that ‘go-to’ pair. From the staple slip-on to the classic wedge, the AllSole buyers list the top trending styles for this coming season so you can put your best foot forward.

The Dress Sandal

Ideal for the social calendar, heeled dress sandals are the perfect addition to any summer party or occasion outfit. Simplicity can be key with a bright or creative outfit. We suggested these Steve Madden Stecy ‘Barely There’ Heeled Sandals in white. This minimal style brings elegance to any dress or jumpsuit, and could even be paired with jeans or shorts for that warm summer soiree.

The Tie Up

Grab a pair of ankle climbers this summer season and jazz up that casual summer dress or outfit. In an espadrille style, TOMS present these Women’s Katalina Suede tie ups, perfect for the warm weather. Ideal for a city break or holiday that requires walking. Plus, the perfect neutral colour for matching with multiple outfits.


The Embellished

Needing an evening shoe without the pain of a heel? Take an embellished sandal on your summer trip for the perfect evening meal outfit addition. Or wear to the beach to glamourize your day-to-day look. Our favourites include the Ash ‘Peps’ Studded Toe Post Sandals. The gold studded embellishments add dimension and detail whilst the toe post and over strap provide comfort and structure to the shoe.

The Block Heel

The block heel is in and we hope it is here to stay. The chuckier, the sturdier. Grab a pair of these this summer for the comfiest night out. You’ll never be off the dancefloor! For us, Sol Sana takes the win. With the embroided palm trees and chunky strap, these are a worthwhile investment for any summer party-goer.

The Slide

Staple piece of the year: the slider. The ease, the aesthetic and the comfort are all reasons we can’t keep away. But as the temperature rises, so does the demand. We’d wear them everyday if we could, wouldn’t you? We’re currently loving these Ted Baker Women’s Qarla Slide Sandals in Serenity Print for the colour and design!

The Gladiator

Year after year this style doesn’t disappoint. Back for another season is the gladiator. Heel or no heel this trend is no stranger to the summer season. Providing your feet with a breathable structure and neutral colour, we’re loving these UGG Women’s Macayla Gladiator Heeled Sandals.

The Wedge

The ultimate summer shoe is returning for its yearly appearance. Almost always in the summer limelight is the classic wedge, and we don’t see it moving anytime soon. Authentic browns and nudes are in this season and we recommend these Dune Women’s Karena Leather Wedged Sandals in Tan – the gold stud detailing is just what you need, we promise.
