Every Minimalist Should Have These Shoe Brands Bookmarked


When it comes to your shoe collection, it's often those go-with-anything styles that end up getting the most play. You know, those simple, sleek sandals, slides, and boots you reach for time and time again. And while you may already have a few go-to spots for sourcing these pared-down styles, if you're looking to branch out to different minimalist shoe brands to add to your carefully curated closet, well, you've come to the right place.

The selection of brands you'll find below not only serve up chic, understated shoes for the warmer months, but for every season of the year. So, that means you can plan on scooping up open-toed favorites to wear now, and score equally as stylish silhouettes for the cooler temperatures, too.
