This summer, sandals get CHUNKY. Traditional sandal silhouettes get an update with serious straps, strong soles and tons of attitude. Fisherman sandals and extreme gladiators are the key looks for S/S ’13: robust and stylish they’re the perfect city sandals.

Closed toe fisherman styles are the most traditional: these strappy beauties from Red or Dead are simple and cute while these futuristic silver bad boys are part of Dr. Martens’ limited edition range with Agyness Deyn. The Shore Clarissa is an open-toed alternative: we love the thick, patent straps and signature Dr. Martens’ sole. Great to toughen up girly dresses or with jeans.




The gladiator gets an update for S/S ’13: think studs, flatforms and thick leather straps. Magnitude from schuh is epic: dressed in tonal metallics or embellished with heavy metal, it’s a strong contender in the style stakes. We also love the Red or Dead Spartacus: adorned with buckles and with a chunky, cleated sole it’s a gladiator that makes us glad. Bring on summer!
