As silly as it sounds, there’s something about sandals that sparks an integral joy in me. Perhaps it’s transportive; I can slip on my beloved, five-year-old tan leather sliders, and I immediately feel as if I’m back on my favourite beach, the horizon the only thing requiring my attention. I’m most at peace with myself and my lot in summer, and sandals play an important role in that.
Taking into account the love letter I’ve just written, it won’t surprise you to learn that earlier this week when my friends wondered what styles to invest in this year, they came to me for the intel. Luckily for them, I’ve been thinking about sandals for a while now, specifically which feel current for 2023. Unlike other garments and accessories, the sandal trends for 2023 feel pretty timeless. Although there’s no getting away from the return of wedges (which I’m very much here for, by the way), the sandals you’re about to delve into have the potential to go way beyond 2023; some of them you may already own from previous seasons, such is a testament to their staying power.
Before you book in for that transformative pedi (naturally, I’ve already had mine), let’s peruse the sandals I think will dominate this summer.
