Everyone in the Fashion Industry Will Buy These $60 Sandals This Summer

Over the past year, new-in sections have been like a revolving door of "dad" trends, with everything from anoraks to golf course–ready polos getting some attention from the fashion crowd, causing many a dad joke. This year, it's practical sandals brand Teva that has had a quick shift in rep, as they're selling quickly on ASOS and Urban Outfitters.

These are the type of shoes you'll find for sale in any camping shop—alongside Cliff bars and CamelBaks. So what has made them suddenly become so popular? As with most unlikely trends, this one was started by Miuccia Prada, who has made chunky rubber-soled sandals with velcro straps a cult item, rather than just a sensible one.

These are shoes you can easily walk 10,000 steps a day in, thanks to the spongey platform and the adjustable straps. They come in many colors—orange, white, khaki, etc. However, the most popular style is the black Midform Chunky Sandals, which are $60 on Nordstrom. For those looking to go full-on "dad," add a pair of white chunky ankle socks.
