Best Foot Forward: 4 Sandal Trends You Need To Know

Up your summer footwear game with this season’s four key sandal trends.

There’s nothing better than throwing off our boots and trainers in favour of getting some air to our feet and donning a good sandal when the sun shines. While a Havaiana flip flop or a leather slide will always fit the bill, it’s also fun to switch it up with one of the season’s hottest trends. These are sandal looks to know for summer 2022.
