Say hello to sporty tourist sandals, because they’ve definitely come to stay. The enduring athleisure trend meets the “ugly” fashion movement in one of the coolest shoes for this season, that serve as an ideal sneaker alternative for warmer months. And if you’re already tired of seeing them everywhere on your Instagram feed, we are sorry to say that you’d better get used to it: they won’t be popular just this season, but they’re also set to become a core item for spring/summer 2020.
First spotted on S/S 2019 runways, where designers including Anna Sui, Cecilie Bahnsen and Sandy Liang included them in their collections, these 90-inspired comfortable sandals have gone mainstream with the help of fashion influencers.
Trend-savvy Instagrammers are showcasing many different ways to wear them: some of them are brave enough to wear them with socks (we said “ugly fashion movement”, right?), while others play with contrasts, combining a traditionally masculine shoe design with highly feminine outfits made of delicate dresses and skirts.
However you’ll style them, our advice is clear: go buy a pair of sport sandals if you really want to be the trendy this summer!
Here are 5 interpretations of the trend that will inspire you.
1. TEVA X OUTDOOR VOICES Outdoor Voices partnered with Teva to deliver a colorful summer sandal that will perfectly complement your swimwear this summer. Combining pastels and brights colors, this shoes will give you a fresh yet nostalgic look.
2. MARC JACOBS
Retro-futurism meets athleisure with the Somewhere Sport sandals from Marc Jacobs. Part dad sneakers and part hiking sandals, they are the perfect complement for a cool urban look.
If you’re onto the neon trend, don’t miss Zara’s sporty platform sandals! With their bright yellow straps and their graphic sole you won’t get unnoticed.
Even UGG, traditionally known for their boots, have joined this new fashion movement. Inspired by California deserts, their Le Fluff add – as the name suggests – soft fluff to sport sandals. On the website, they recommend to pair them with an off-the-shoulder dress.
