The Sandals Everyone Will Wear This Spring

The way the conversation typically flows, when it comes to women and their shoes, is that we're all obsessed with buying (and wearing) high heels. And while that may be true for some of us, there's also an increasing number of women opting for flats over heels, and designers are embracing this shift. Labels like Gucci, and Miu Miu have led the way, and we're all on board. 

For spring, we're all about the flat sandal (of every kind). While we'll always love our heeled wedges and espadrilles for warm days, right now, we're putting them away in favour of slides, woven flats, and gladiator sandals.

Keep scrolling to discover every type of sandal you need this season, and shop our top picks.

The caged flat is best served with a rounded, covered-up toe. It's the updated version of the backless loafer we wore all winter.

When worn with a pair of cropped pants, the sleek slides adds a certain elegance and cool-factor that's really easy to achieve. We love them with these jeans.

We've worn knee-high gladiator sandals before and now they're back again, but this time, it's a sleek revival. They feel more wearable. We'll be wearing ours with mini skirts and duster coats.

Always keep a place in your wardrobe for a simple lace-up sandal. They're timeless and versatile.

So these might seem pretty 'out-there', but since Gucci released its fur-lined loafer, and Rihanna released the Fenty x Puma slides, we sense the fluffy shoe trend won't die any time soon. Keep the rest of your look simple if it feels a bit 'much'.

If you hear rubber soles, you probably think pool-side slides. But, in 2016, it means these are the coolest sandals you can wear. Everything goes—from a slide version, to chunky lace-up sandal.
