If you ask me, versatility is the key to the perfect sandals, along with great quality. Then, you can wear your chosen pair again and again with everything you already own in your wardrobe. And since you’ll be spending so much time together, your next investment isn’t a decision to be taken lightly. An easily worn-away sole or uncomfortably stiff shape will render your sandals unwearable from the start, and we certainly don’t want that.
That’s why I thought I’d put my infatuation to good use and create an expert edit for you, including only the sandals that, out of the hundreds of pairs I’ve already scrolled through this year for research, have seriously impressed me. Scroll down, and you’ll find the 25 pairs I would recommend, from classic leather slides to this season’s most-wanted fisherman sandals. There are some premium styles from the high street that I’ve tried and tested and some more luxe styles from brands that put quality and craftsmanship first. All of them, though, are under £250, which is still an investment but one that you should easily reap the rewards of thanks to how timeless these styles are.
