Maybe you’re jetting off to Europe for the summer, or perhaps you’re just super organised and keen to pick up a new pair of summer sandals before they sell out as the weather heats up. Either way, we’ve got you covered with our edit of the best strappy sandals, chunky sandals for everyday, and heeled sandals to make those slip dresses work hard.
What Sandals Are Trending Right Now?
Ideally, you’ll have a pair of chunky sandals in your wardrobe to wear with everything – we mean everything. They’re still the number one sandal trend for weekend wear, turning midi dresses casual, and even the office if you’re in a relaxed workplace. If they’re really not your style, a pair of slides will work just as hard, and are less intimidating.
When it comes to heeled sandals, kitten heels are popular, and a great way to dress any outfit up without killing your feet. If you love the height, stilettos are definitely back, but the block heel hasn’t disappeared, either – especially if you choose a platform.
Check out our favourite women’s sandals below.
Best Flat Women’s Sandals
Alias Mae’s Paris Sandal ($199.95) has been a top-seller for years. It’s a great go-to chunky sandal with a leather upper to stretch and accommodate your feet for the perfect fit, plus a three centimetre sole for a little height.
Platform sandals are excellent with flare jeans to add height and lift the hem so you get that great fit. Tony Bianco’s Elke Sandals ($149.95) feature a raw wooden sole for maximum 70s vibes, plus a nubuck leather upper for comfort.
With eight colourways to choose from, you’ll find your go-to summer slides in Sol Sana’s Mila range ($99). The modern square sole highlights a good pedi, and the matte leather upper is comfortable and stylish.
Another pair of wildly popular chunky sandals, the Izano Slides by James Smith ($189) are a strong pick thanks to the adjustable velcro straps and moulded sole. Really comfortable, but also great for wider feet.
Best Heeled Women’s Sandals
The Katie Sandal
LMS The Brand make great heeled sandals, and the Katie sandal ($230), inspired by 90s supermodels, is going to fast become your go-to for nights out. A comfortable eight centimetre heel will keep you going on the dance floor, and the four colourways are all equally as fun as each other, so your hardest decision will be which one to buy.
If you’re after a comfortable and versatile pair of black women’s heels, the Yazmin sandals from Billini ($89.95) are both affordable and wear-with-anything. The seven centimetre heel is chunky and can withstand grass events (ahem, every summer wedding), and the strappy front is chic and surprisingly supportive.
Valentina Siren Platform Sandal
These chunky platform sandals by Wittner ($240) are incredible! Absolute showstoppers, they feature a twelve centimetre heel and a recycled satin upper, with leather lining and a block heel. Not into the Barbie pink? They also come in red satin or black suede.
Another pair of party heels, these sandals by Django & Juliette ($139.95) are reminiscent of our 00s jelly sandals we used to be obsessed with. The sheer vinylite straps are all party, all the time, and we’re in love with the confetti block heel.
These strappy heels by Novo ($79.95) have a leather-look upper and come in five colourways, including black and lavender as well as this poppy papaya shade. The multi-strap front keeps you supported, while the strappy ankle tie means no sliding around.
