Need a Pair Of Men's Sandals?

Let's talk men's sandals. The little niche of men's casual wear that is slowly but surely scaling up the popularity ladder. Men's sandals are becoming more prevalent as a fashion option beyond the beach or the poolside. So, here are a few pointers to get you started with the best men's sandals.

Straps

Firstly, be mindful of strap number. Too many straps, particularly around the ankle, will have you looking full Gladiator. Not the worst outcome, but it is something to keep in mind. The same goes for single straps— it won't matter if they cost you $5 or $500, a sandal with one thin strap is always at risk of looking like a cheap beach thong. Beyond that, the only real rule is the sock rule. Please don't wear socks with men's sandals. Those with foot injuries, sprains or other conditions are exempt from this rule, but otherwise, just don't.

Cushioning

Cushioned soles are the name of the game if you want your favourite men's sandals to last the season. Not only are cushioned soles or footbeds more supportive and painless for your feet, but it also suggests that those men's sandals are capable of more taxing wear and tear. One style that has risen to fame (or infamy, depending on your perspective) thanks to this philosophy is Birkenstock men's sandals.

Birkenstocks

Birkenstock men's sandals has been taking shops by storm, both in the women's and the men's sections. Of course, it isn't hard to see why. With a cushy and contoured footbed, and two thick buckled straps to keep feet secure, Birkenstock men's sandals is a winner this season. The thick sole is not to be understated either— this is a style that can survive more than a trip to the beach or the shop. Your feet get to breathe and move with this style, and you get to enjoy the ultimate comfort.

Styling

Shorts and sandals are a winning combination. But depending on the look you're going for, the length and style your pants or shorts should be is up for debatable. Frayed denim cut-offs are perfect for the I-just-came-off-the-beach look. Any man who likes his casual dress looking sharp might be better with a chino below the knee, or some trousers.

Tips

However, be vigilant concerning the size and quality of the sole before you throw one of these on for a day of walking. Heavy-duty sandals are one thing, but a simple slide or thong design provide your foot less support. Blisters, people. They aren't fun.

Avoid bright colours. Maybe it goes without saying, but wearing bright colours or prints with sandals is going to have you looking like a tourist, sans the camera and fruit cocktail. Keep to neutral and natural tones, or dedicate yourself to the monochromatic.

Material

When it comes to function, the material plays a big part. A men's sandal that is bound to get wet at the beach or the boat is ideally made from rubber or other synthetic materials. You do not want to trash your expensive leather men's sandals on the first day out, just because you got them wet.
