Shopping Post: 9 Of The Best Minimalist Sandals

I’m loving the minimalistic leather sandals on offer this summer!

My check-list for the ultimate summer sandal is:

  1. natural matte leather,
  2. an ankle strap that that is on the sexy side of wide (or a sling back),
  3. super flat soles,
  4. neutral tones.

This sandal is the perfect all-day option for summer, working with slim leg jeans, shorts of all descriptions, casual dresses and relaxed masculine-style linen pants.

For a shoe that is so outwardly basic in appearance, I kind of get an artsy feel about them; the pared back simplicity is a reminder of form over artifice.

Worth buying more than one pair, you’ll be sure to get your mileage out of these quality staples this season. TIP: buy genuine leather or don’t buy at all!

    Big, big sandal fan here too and with long legs, I love the ankle strap to ‘shorten’ my legs, giving me a better looking proportion. Great selection here, thank you!

    You’re welcome @janekim! Hope you find something that you can get a lot of wear out of!

    Thanks for the tip about Etsy @Pascaline – I’m an etsy fan myself, but for some reason I have not thought to look there for sandals! I will check it out.

    I bought mine on Etsy, handmade in Cyprus the best sandals ever I’m getting another pair, plus it’s custom made and a fraction of the store bought sandals.
