And when it comes to shopping for the perfect pair, explore the multitude of options available.
WHAT DEFINES A SANDAL?
Sandals stand out with their simple, open design that exposes much of the foot. Their history dates back to ancient times, showcasing a rich evolution across varied cultures and styles. Despite diverse transformations, the essential character of sandals – blending comfort with fashion – has remained constant through ages and trends.
EXPLORING 7 DISTINCT SANDAL STYLES
1. Slide Sandals
Slide sandals have become a footwear favorite due to their fusion of comfort and effortless style. For women, slides like The Good Shepherd which is also available for men typically present a more delicate touch with refined straps, making them a perfect fit for a beach day or pairing with breezy summer dresses. In contrast, the men's slides, especially popular models like the Jesse, exhibit a more robust appeal with their broader straps and durable design, making them ideal for poolside relaxation or laid-back outings.
2. Flip-Flop Sandals
Flip-flop style sandals have long been a staple in casual footwear, distinguished by their signature single cross-bar thong at the front and an absence of back straps. For women, the elegant Tamar design offers a touch of refinement, proving that flip-flops can be both comfortable and stylish. Tamar offers ease of wear and optimal breathability, making them a favorite for many. While some flip-flops lean towards the disposable end of the spectrum, there are high-quality alternatives. For men, the Solomon stands out, crafted with durable leather like Tamar that ensures both style and longevity.
3. Strappy Sandals
Strappy sandals are marked by their network of straps crisscrossing over the top of the foot and are sometimes complemented by an adjustable side buckle for a tailored fit. Styles range from delicate threads, like the women's Uri design, to the more substantial, chunky straps. The men's Good Shepherd Buckle echoes the robustness of fisherman designs. Both are key highlights of our collection.
4. Gladiator Sandals
Originating from ancient Rome, gladiator sandals draw inspiration from the footwear of warriors who once graced the Colosseum's sands. Featured prominently in our collection, these open-toed casual sandals are characterized by straps running across the foot and ascending the ankle, sometimes extending all the way up the calf. Their historical roots and distinctive design make them a statement piece in contemporary fashion.
5. Fisherman Sandals
Fisherman sandals, characterized by their interwoven straps, were originally tailored to fishermen, ensuring foot protection and efficient water drainage. In today's fashion, the men's Barak and women's Daniel designs showcase the closed-toe and heel strap features, offering a mix of security and breathability. Our Fisherman sandals adeptly bridge durability with style, fit for both rugged terrains and urban sidewalks.
