No matter how much the fashion calendar might try to prompt the style-conscious to always be thinking of the next season, the simple fact of the matter is that summer isn't over just yet. And why would anyone try to rush toward the end of the season of ample sunlight and beachside hangouts? There's no good reason for it, in our book.
Therefore, in the name of summer, we're declaring that it's not yet time to give up on that most summery of footwear staples: the leather sandal. Whether you're planning one more seaside vacation complete with floral dresses and straw hats or want to roam the city in biker shorts and oversized tees this weekend, we've got the right footwear to finish off your look. We rounded up the best picks on the market — from arty Loq heels to tough Dr. Marten flats to bright Maryam Nassir Zadeh creations — to elevate your favorite warm-weather garb.
Take a look at all our favorite leather sandals, from flip flops to flatforms to strappy skin-barers, in the gallery below.
