As summer is coming to a close, let’s not forget to show love to the one shoe that holds us down every summer season: sandals! Versatile enough to wear to the beach, to the workplace, and a fun night out, these open-toed essentials are the perfect closet staple.
And still, sandals are severely misunderstood and underrated because we still equate them with those $5 flip-flops we wear to the park, and that’s not quite it. They’re far more sexy and stylish than that, and these black-owned brands crafted the proof!
Here are 4 high-end, black-owned shoe brands that have the sandals you need to spice up your kinda boring style before the summer comes to a close.
From Brother Vellies:
“Inspired by the seaport town in Italy, the Trieste is the ultimate summer getaway. [A sandal] with a leather sole and straps.”
From am:pm london:
“Thandie in cornflower: am:pm’s first flat & colour-block sandals from the ss21 “dear girlfriend” capsule. featuring a 1″ platform, a new, twist-strap detail & padded insole cushion debossed with the classic am:pm logo. thandie is available in 3 [colors].”
From Rebecca Allen:
“Mixed media leather and suede straps elevate a timeless block sandal to flex for day or night. A caramel complected tone, beautiful on all legs. The sandal runs fairly true to size. If you are between sizes you may want to go down a half size.”
“Zeta’s the new sandal of your dreams. Offered in four different colors, this poignant heel is proof that you can have what we all desire the most, comfort and style. Created with every season in mind, Zeta is the perfect blend between minimalism meets ornate design.”
