Summer is here — and so is your new favourite sandal. Just when it felt like the ‘90s had no other fashion gems left to give, the decade generously offers up the return of a shoe that, by the looks your Instagram feed, is about to dominate the warmer months ahead. That must-try throwback trend is none other than the effortlessly sleek, “barely there” sandals. The minimal style features straps so thin, that it can look and feel as though you’re not even wearing any shoes at all. Consider it the footwear equivalent of a slip dress; the functionality of the heel height makes them easy to throw on and go with virtually anything.
Simple in design? Sure, but they're the farthest thing from being called boring.
