7 Sandals To Put A Spring In Your Step

It seemed only a while back that sandals on men were a definite no-no, but times are changing. This spring/summer season, even the most highbrow of labels including the likes of Maison Margiela, Bottega Veneta and Kenzo deigned to put sandals on the runway – occasionally paired with socks, god forbid. As it appears, the open-toed look no longer seems to be confined to the locker room. Yet the sandals making an appearance nowadays aren’t your regulation flip flops and ratty old Birkenstocks. Featuring luxurious leather straps and minimalist colorways, they exude elegance more so than your plebian plastic pool slide. We’ve taken the liberty of rounding up the best open-toed kicks on the market to give you happy feet this summer.
