This Sandal Trend Will Be Big This Spring


We’re certain your toes are ready to break free from the confines of winter footwear, and a fully prepped sandal wardrobe is essential for the sunny season ahead. We’ve got a major trend to put on your radar: artisanal slides. While the slip-on sandal has been a mainstay in past seasons, the comfy-chic style is updated with south-of-the-border flair—think woven textures, artful embroidery and textured accents like pompoms and fringe for a handcrafted feel. Pick from festive espadrilles, crafty raffia and vibrant fabrics if you’re feeling bold, or opt for natural leather or simple straw if a pared-back take is more your speed. Here, shop our edit at every price point. Come on, get your feet happy!
