Summertime Sandals You Need

As footwear maketh the season, we curate the best and brightest of the latest lust-have designer sandals and espadrilles.

It might be all scarred skies and endless rain this week, but we know that summer in the 852 is a mixed bag. We predict the sun will be back before you know it, which means that, ladies, it’s time to take a look at your hot-weather shoe wardrobe.

For those competing with the slopes of Central Hong Kong– we’re looking at you, Mid-Levels – heels are out and flats are where it’s at. That doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style; statement sandals from the likes of Mabu by Maria BK, Brother Vellies and K. Jacques deliver serious cool points without the threat of slipping your way down Caine Road.

If hills aren’t on your agenda, opt for a chic wedge or classic espadrille to give your outfit a sartorial boost. Try Castañer, Manebi or Soludos for a traditional rope style, or take a more elegant approach with designs from big brand names including Chloé and Sergio Rossi.

Shelve neutral hues, opting instead for summertime brights in a kaleidoscope of bold shades to give a colourful kick to every ensemble!
