5 Sandal Trends Leading the Way This Summer

Discover the coolest sandals for summer, from statement mules to adventure-ready utility sandals.

Summer 2021 is inching closer, bringing with it hot temperatures and a slew of fresh footwear trends including all kinds of sandals. It’s time to release the toes! Look to Spring 2021 ready-to-wear shows from designers like AGL and Kenzo where chunky lug-sole sandals and colourful mules walked off of runways and onto the street style scene overseas. These statement kicks will get you ready for the restaurant patio (once those reopen coast to coast — fingers crossed) or your condo balcony. If you’re looking for an adventure, Nike and Suicoke are the brands to get you geared up for a summer outdoors. Turn to the utility sandal to transform feelings of wanderlust into hikes and camping trips — a single Velcro strap is all you need and you’re treetop-bound. Below, we break down the top sandal trends and summer shoes for women.

Utility sandals

A fuss-free adventure shoe won’t only take you places, it will remind you of those sweet, sweltering days at the theme park and Geocaching missions with friends.


Not-so-basic slides

Slides have evolved from your basic two-part contraption, with the latest iterations incorporating Velcro straps, big buckles and puffy details.


Chunky soles

Give socks-with-sandals a chance with a pair of heavy-duty platforms.


Thong slippers

For a day on the dock or a chill afternoon at the park, slip on a pair of sleek flip flops.
