Home » Fashion » Summer Essential: 10 Pairs of City Sandals
Jul
31

When it comes to summer sandals, there is one style that rises about the rest: The City Sandal. These are sandals with a low and sturdy block heel and straps to secure the ankle. They are tall enough to give you a bit of lift, but not so teetering that they become difficult to walk or stand in after a while.

We love the block heel because it’s comfortable and not too high, plus they’re one of the trendiest shoes for summer 2016. Along with being a great option for the work day or brunch with your besties, they’re also the ideal shoe for dancing all night at summer wedding.

Below, we rounded up our 10 favorite pairs of city sandals at every price, from luxurious blue suede Aquazzura sandals to affordable lace-up shoes from Ivanka Trump.

1.  Schutz Shoes

 Schutz ‘Estelamaris’ city sandals, $160.

These Schutz sandals are perfect for long summer days. Soft suede uppers and cork soles make these great shoes for festivals, fairs, strolls on the boardwalk and brunch in the city. We also love their affordable price tag—wear these sandals two days a week for two months and your cost per wear is just $10.

2.  Loeffler Randall

 Loeffler Randall ‘Luz’ leather sandal, $395.

If you’re looking for a fun, festive and versatile shoe to wear to all your dressy events this summer (weddings, birthdays, etc), these Loeffler Randall leather sandals are a worthy investment. The laces and tassels make them perfect for dancing and sashaying around the dance floor, and the sturdy heels will keep you out there all night long.

3.  Vince

Vince ‘Farrah’ sandal, $350.

The ideal city sandals for work? These soft grey Vince shoes with a stacked wood heel are sophisticated and modest. We’d wear them our cropped summer trousers, pencil skirts and sun dresses, too. Grey makes a pretty and practical alternative to tan and nude shoes, and goes with just as many colors.

4.  Ivanka Trump

 Ivanka Trump ‘Ellyn’ lace-up sandal, $110.

Lace-up sandals are one of the hottest trends of the summer, and we love how affordable these cognac Ivanka Trump city heels are. This color looks especially great with white—wear these with your prettiest white lace dresses, white denim shorts and of course, your classic white t-shirt. (Perfect for theboho girls out there.)

5.  Sarto By Franco Sarto

 Sarto By Franco Sarto ‘Fidela’ sandal, $119.

These might be the prettiest city sandals in the bunch, their laser cut design resembles the edges of a feminine lace dress. To contrast their delicate look, wear these sandals with boyfriend jeans and sleek shift dresses.

6.  AGL

 AGL ‘City’ block heel sandal, $355.

We tend to treat animal and python prints like neutrals, and these AGL sandals are no different. These strappy shoes will take you from work to happy hour to dates and even weddings with ease. Their sturdy and low heel will keep you comfortable for hours on end.

7.  Zara

 Zara high-heel lace-up sandals, $70.

We’re not ashamed to admit that we’re a little obsessed with everything at Zara right now—especially these fun and kicky lace-up sandals. The fringe on the toe adds a bit of sass and character, making these $70 shoes a great choice for nights out with girlfriends and date nights, too. (And let’s be honest, you can wear them all day with denim shorts and a t-shirt, too.)

9.  Topshop

 Topshop ‘Natalia’ double buckle sandals, $115.

White shoes are one of our favorite summer trends. These Topshop city sandals have a higher heel than some of the others in this roundup, making them a bit more elevated (literally and figuratively) and better for dressing up. Wear them to summer weddings and parties with your favorite wrap dress.
