On a scale of flip flops to caged sandals, we’ve been in search of the perfect happy medium summer shoe that’s as comfy as it is versatile. While bright flip flops have long been the standard for casual summer footwear, they don’t always offer the support your tootsies are yearning for. And don’t get us wrong, we love making a statement in our gladiators, but sometimes we need an everyday sandal that we could slip on before taking the kiddos to the park.
So how did we find a wear-everywhere slip-on sandal that plays well with both summer dresses and distressed denim? We have one word for you: Cork.
While the two-strap cork sandal started the tomboy-chic footwear trend, there are so many ways to inject this au natural trend into your footwear game.
This summer, try pairing some black faux leather cork sandals with distressed boyfriend jeans and a flowey, lightweight top. Add in a bold accent watch to round out an outfit that’s perfect for an afternoon in the city or happy hour under an umbrella.
Before you reach for your sneaks and leggings for a casual night out, try patterned cork sandals paired with your favorite soft pants for an evening stroll around the water. Stylish shoes that are easy to walk in are pretty much every girl’s dream, so yes. We’re literally making your dreams come true.
Cork sandals will even go with those floral patterned shorts you’ve been waiting all year to bust out. A white strap on these sandals will provide some balance to any range of summer colors, and a denim jacket is essential for those cool nights by the lake.
