The opportunity to wear sandals for every single occasion is definitely one of my favourite things about Summer. There are just so many gorgeous styles out there, and after a Winter, and Spring of being bundled up in thick socks and boots, my feet totally appreciate the feeling of freedom that wearing sandals brings.
When it comes to sandals, my feet are firmly planted in the flat camp. I do have a pair of 70s style Clarks wedges which I love with a passion, but, in general, I live in flats – Havaianas, Ipanema and pretty jeweled styles that can be teamed with a dress or jumpsuit for an evening out. I never pack any heels for my Summer holidays, often finding resorts full of uneven. cobbled pavements which are frankly a graveyard for vertiginous heels, so I just pack glittery sandals and give my feet a break.
This Summer Brantano has a great range of women’s sandals that cover all the bases, and are most certainly giving celebrity Summer style more than a passing glance. With famous brand names like Hush Puppies and Clarks, and styles that range from true Carrie Bradshaw style heels, to retro cork wedges, beautiful jeweled sandals, gladiator flats and Ipanema flip flops that are now as familiar with cargo trousers or maxi dresses as they are with a bikini, Brantano have clearly taken their sandal duties very seriously. There is a pair for every occasion, and a style for every taste.
