There is one pair of shoes we expect to see in the vacation wardrobes of fashion girls everywhere, and they aren’t your ordinary sandals. Platform sandals, specifically the flatform versions, are popping up in the collections of designers across the board, and we’re very into them. One of the best parts about them is that they not only add a little height, but they’re also super comfortable to walk in.

We’re seeing everything from woven espadrille styles to nautical cord ones to sandals with a lightweight foam sole and even a flatform version of traditional Teva sandals. Like wicker bags or denim jackets, they pair nicely with cool sundresses, cutoff shorts, and flowy midi-length skirts and offer just the right element of fun that is a happy addition to any summer outfit.
