While some may have thought that the chunky sandal had seen its day, the spring trend is only just beginning to take off. It's not all that surprising, considering our usual transition into strappy heels and mules has been, in the most part, halted due to the ongoing pandemic and its shifting of our regular fashion rotations.
The bold silhouette presents the perfect adaptation to our new world order, providing an upgrade from our slippers while providing the same level of comfort. Because, let's face it - with the kitchen taking hold as the new office hang-out and the supermarket aisle the new runway, there's a need to up our footwear game while still remaining as practical and comfortable as possible.
Thankfully, brands have listened to our fashion quandary, providing a myriad of options to suit every style. From the now cult-favourite Chanel quilted sandals that have taken Instagram by storm to Australian fashion-forward retailers like Camilla And Marc putting their own twist on the summer staple.
