Choosing Sandals For Summer – Our Guide
Summer means sun, sea and sandals! With style, comfort, practicality, and price being key considerations it can be frustrating to find the perfect pair of sandals for the summer months. Here at Shoetique we pride ourselves on stocking the best in stylish, comfortable footwear although choosing from our range of over 500 sandals can still seem like an impossible task. Our guide to choosing your Summer Sandals aims to make the process simple for everyone.
Know your brands
We stock over 30 brands each of which is completely different. It’s important to understand that comfort and fit can vary massively from one brand to the next and can even vary between styles within a brand, therefore, doing a little research before purchasing is always good. Most brands will have information about the design of their shoes and reading the product description for a shoe can be really helpful. For sizing, you can never be 100% sure that a sandal will fit, just because you have always bought FitFlop sandals in a size 5 doesn’t mean that this particular sandal will be the same. Size guides are great for giving you an idea about sizing but the best thing is to read customer reviews – see how other found the fit to be, often this will give you the best indication.
Choose A Style You Love
I know this probably sounds incredibly simple – of course your not going to buy sandals you don’t like? More than often though we can get carried away with the price or what we think is trendy at the moment and forget what we actually love to wear. Metallics is a huge trend this season, from silver to bronze everyone is wearing a bit of glitz BUT if you don’t typically go for bright, stand out footwear then as lovely as your new gold sandals may look you are most likely not going to get much wear out of them.
Make Sure They Are Practical As Well As Stylish
Obviously it’s important that your new sandals look fabulous on your feet but it’s also important to consider where and when you will be wearing them. If they are for a beach holiday -are they lightweight for packing? Are they waterproof? For hot weather, you are better to stick to natural materials such a leather or suede as they allow your feet to breath more easily. An embellished sandal could be the perfect day to night alternative so you don’t need to pairs. Small things like this are so important and will help ensure you get the perfect Summer Sandals this season.
