Men's summer sandals at schuh

Sandals, mandals, call them what you will, men’s sandals are a hot topic. Some say they’re a no-go area unless you live in hotter climes that is, but sadly, we don’t. Others swear by them and think they’re an essential addition to the summer wardrobe. From London to Glasgow and everywhere in-between, we’ve seen some strong sandal game.

This summer, it’s about keeping it simple and neutral. Black is the go-to colour, but tan and earthy shades are also a good look. When it comes to the sandal style, there are a few key silhouettes to choose from and we’ve chosen our favourites to help you get started.

You can’t go wrong with a Birkenstock. These comfy, footbed sandals are city friendly due to their sturdiness, so much better than a flip flop. They’re also timeless, meaning you’ll wear them for summers to come. Ladies’ man and proud #DadBod owner Leo DiCaprio loves a pair. Of Birkenstocks, that is.

Once considered a huge fashion faux pas. The sporty reef sandal became associated with backpackers, dudes old before their time, hippies and in general, the polar opposite of a stylish person. Not anymore. Teva sandals are back. Why? Because fashion says so, right! Don’t argue, just enjoy. These outdoorsy sandals are so comfy and you can definitely pull them off.

The Pool Slide
The pool slide has been gaining momentum for the last couple of summers and we love it. Typically a casual shoe worn when lounging (often by the pool, as the name suggests) they’re now acceptable every day footwear. We’d advise not wearing them to the office mind you, depending on where you work that is. Disclaimer: careful when pairing with socks, unless you’re certain you can nail it like a hip hop star. Even sandal lover Becks has struggled with that one. Check out the Nike Benassi.

Multi Strap
The multi strap sandal is a good option if you’re looking for something a bit different. Certainly one for the fashion forward guys out there who like to lead the way with trends, rather than follow them. Thick leather straps atop a chunky, signature sole means these Dr. Martens Shore Gryphon sandals will last you for life.

The fisherman is a lightweight sandal that will keep your feet cool while looking smart. A designer favourite, the likes of Christopher Kane and Philip Lim have trotted the style down the runway. The leather upper on the H by Hudson Kerala sandal features a closed toe, giving it a more formal feel. It’s like a hybrid shoe/sandal and suitable for work or play.

Our final word of advice should you choose to take the plunge is to look after your feet. Otherwise, stick to wearing trainers.
