Summer Sandal Search

Summer Sandal Search

Samedi dernier, il faisait un temps de rêve à NY. C’était la journée de printemps parfaite : chaude, ensoleillée, 20 degrés. Alors forcément, je n’ai pas pu résister à l’envie d’exhiber mes pieds fraîchement manucurés.

J’ai donc déambulé toute contente dans la rue, Birkenstock aux pieds, tapis de yoga à l’épaule, jus frais de chez Pressed Juicery à la main. Petite parenthèse d’ailleurs, leurs jus sont déments… je vous conseille le Roots 3 !!! Enfin bref, tout allait bien, j’ai dit au revoir à une copine, et là, j’ai foncé dans une porte vitrée et je me suis bien abîmé un orteil. Après quelques larmes de douleur et plusieurs pansements, je me suis mise en quête de la chaussure estivale parfaite, aka à bouts fermés. Pour l’instant, le seul truc auquel je pense, c’est des espadrilles confortables.

Vous avez des idées ?

  • I actually like these!
    I have a pair of ugly Hush Puppies in soft natural brown leather. So comfy! Not fancy but I hope that painted toenails will help a bit. :)


  • Minnetonka!! Classic and comfy:)

    Amanda! So sorry to hear about your toe. I’m a ballet dancer and had surgery on my toe last summer, so I literally feel your pain. I LIVED in Steve Madden’s « Surfside Platform Wedge Sandal. » Not sure if they’ll have anything similar this season, but def do some googling and see if you can track down a pair!

    Fingers crossed that your toe feels better soon :(

  • I got the same problem last summer : and menorquinas are the solution !
    So confortable and a lot of colour….

  • You should try Solillas! So comfy & based on traditional Spanish style, but less coveted than espadrilles. Such a flattering style!

  • I love closed toe huaraches in the summer! Simple, go with everything, comfy and with all the holes your feet can still breathe well.

  • Try the Nagisa shoes. They’re very trendy :-)

  • what about Birkenstock Boston? still Birkenstock but « closed » ;)
    I find them pretty cool too, if you like Birks – what do you think?

  • I’m not really into summer shoes. I always pick up very simple leather sandals (almost the same, every season) from Topshop or classic brands. But this year, I had really crush on two pairs for a change.

    The « classic / walking in the city » ones are a pair of espadrilles with a satin lace up from Sezane (with breton stripes) and the « beach babe / sexy feet » is a pair of greez lace up sandals with « pompom » and charms from Mabu by Maria BK.

  • I just bought a pair of espadrille wedges from Spain.. (via etsy) they are incredibly comfortable, and I always receive compliments. Another closed toe would be the Dolce Vita tia mule…they still feel a bit like slippers when I wear them, they’re so comfortable.

  • This is so uncanny. I am in the UK and have spent a lot of time today searching online for just such a summer shoe. I will definitely look into the options listed here.

  • Love them!


  • Les espadrilles sont mes chaussures de l’été, chaque année. Achetée dans leur lieu d’origine, Mauléon, dans la Soule au Pays Basque, fabriquées sur place et devant vous!

  • Are these yellow shoes Birkenstock? If not, can anyone tell me what they are?

  • What brand are the yellow sandals? They are not listed. I like them a lot.

  • I think the yellow ones are Thais by Ancient Greek Sandals
