WORDS BY KEANU ADORABLE

Sandals have not had the best reputation in recent times – think of the classic socks-and-sandals stereotype, but open-toe footwear shouldn’t be relegated to the feet of overzealous dadcore fans. Let’s get the facts down first – sandals can be comfortable. Once broken in, having the cool summer breeze caress your feet is a feeling of freedom that no other sneaker can replicate. Another thing we’d like to point out is the versatility of sandals, you can wear them with pretty much anything. Whether it be tracksuits or a suit, it can offer a different choice for spring and summer outfits – As long as you keep your toenails neat and trimmed.

We here at CMTM have selected 6 of the best sandals that can be added to your Summer wardrobe, with a selection from brands like Birkenstock, Kurt Geiger, Camper, Suicoke, Tod’s and Prada, you are definitely spoiled for choice.
