When it comes to summer sandals, Birkenstocks walked so every other pair could run; from the beloved shearling-lined iteration to the streamlined classics in any color, the brand’s Arizona style is a safe bet. As for the rest of our sandal edit, we focus on sandal silhouettes that skew more classic than trendy. This means that the assortment of slides, slingbacks, and strappy sandals done in black, specifically, is robust.
Comfort is another area our buyers focus on: Moldable footbeds, buttery leather, and the aforementioned shearling lining are all accounted for. As for styling, well, with the right footwear, any hemline will do. In need of a bit more guidance? Our editors put together a guide for styling summer outfits—sandals included.
