How to Buy The Right Summer Sandals in 2022
If you’re buying new sandals, it helps to know what to look for. Regardless of style, here are some ways you can pick the absolute perfect pair for you!
The purpose of your sandals
What do you want to wear them for? Do you have particular events in mind? Are they for the beach, or do you need them to wear at home?
The best thing you can do first is to make sure that your summer sandals are suitable for their intended use! Not all sandals are created equal, for example, sandals with heels won’t be an ideal choice for house shoes, and very open sandals may not be ideal for moving and grooving around the house. Also, overly flat sandals won’t be a good option if you have knee, back, or arch pain.
Choose a pair of home summer sandals that is neutral, and goes with any outfit you choose to wear.
The ideal heel height
Needless to say, not everyone has the same preferences when it comes to heels! The key is knowing your needs. If your summer sandals are for daily use, then choose comfort and functionality. A good, sturdy sole, arch support, and high-quality materials are all important factors to look out for!
The level of support
If you’re looking for a versatile pair that can work as indoor/outdoor slippers, then keep in mind that you’ll need some support from your sandals, which a pair of flip-flops may not offer. Make sure you look for sandals that provide some cool circulation of air in the summer, ideally an open-toe design, but without compromising on function.
The level of comfort
Yes, we need to talk about comfort because we’ve all been there – buying a pair of sandals and falling into the trap of “breaking them in”. We aren’t big fans of the idea!
From our experience, purchasing footwear that doesn’t fit correctly will always have some consequences. Either they will affect the health of your feet, or they’ll just be a waste of resources because you won’t end up wearing them.
Opt for a pair of summer sandals that fits well, and places high value on arch support, comfort, and stability!
The quality and sustainability
With overconsumption and fashion leaving a huge carbon footprint on our fragile ecosystem, it helps to consider how your summer sandals are manufactured! By prioritizing the quality of your sandals, it can ensure that you’ll enjoy them for longer, and they’ll leave behind a smaller footprint on our planet too!
