BEACH & POOLSIDE SANDALS
The most important thing when choosing a pair of sandals for the beach is how will they handle the sand and salt water/sea air?
When going on holiday to the beach you need to choose the right pair of sandals as part of your travel wardrobe. You want your feet to feel comfortable and cool as well as having a pair of sandals that will go with your super cute summer dress or even your swimsuit. Flips flops/toe post sandals are usually the most popular choice and we have several great brands to choose from. We have selected our favourite brands which offer quality footwear and styles that are made with EVA meaning if they get wet and sandy they won’t get stained, damaged or fall apart.
The following brands & styles are best suited for beach sandals:
These Birkenstock beach sandals are available in the classic Arizona style and have been modeled on the cork sandals. They are made from an ultra light and highly flexible EVA material. This means that these are ideal sandals for the beach as they are waterproof, high-quality, odour neutral, washable and extremely easy to care for. These Birkenstock sandals are also very easy to clean and are available in navy & black.
All Crocs beach sandals are made with their Croslite material which enables them to be waterproof, soft, comfortable, lightweight and odour-resistant. These features make the Crocs Kadee the perfect summer holiday companion. They are an ideal pair of every day flip flops and are so versatile thanks to the colours on the straps. When you get back from a day at the beach all you need to do is chuck them in the shower with you and they’ll be clean in no time.
We love the affordability of these two styles of Heavenly Feet beach sandals. Made with man-made materials and a flexibly EVA sole these sandals are lightweight and comfortable. For those after a flip flop then Riga is just for you, but if having something between your toes is not for you then we have Zinnia which is the same look but in a mule style. We love that the uppers have a sparkle for added glamour. Meaning you can take these from the beach to the bar…
Not exactly what you would imagine when you hear “Beach Sandals” but this Mary Jane style would make a great pair of beach shoes. The Lottie is made with a fully elasticated upper with a soft cushioned insole meaning they’re light and flexible. The airy design will mean your feet stay cool but you’ll still have the full support and comfort of a full shoe. These Adesso beach shoes will take from the beach to a day exploring the village centre in ease and come in various colour options.
