For many years, the flat sandals they were looking at us from the windows and buying a pair also meant acquiring a box of band-aids. We do not deny that this can continue to happen to you. The raw feet after a long winter come out of the socks and are exposed to strips and chafing of all kinds.You are aware that in recent years designers have coined expressions like ‘dad sandals‘o ‘ugly shoes’. Referring to these designs with an air of British tourist that we had neglected years ago and that checking their comfort began to wear. But not only that, but they have been a fashion phenomenon and have risen to brands like Birkenstock (even Manolo Blahnik is a fan) to the list of essentials that every trendsetter must have.

Choosing the footwear you are going to wear throughout the day can change our plans for better or for worse, comfort is priority Today in fashion and it is something that we will not be able to ignore. We understand that you are still reluctant to that aesthetic, but if you are as if not, we have made a selection of 12 sandals to start wearing pedicures. Comfortable for the city, comfortable for walks and, above all, comfortable to enjoy that summer that we do not know if it comes.
There are models that remain through time and beyond the borders of the catwalks. These three examples are comfortable and go with everything for their tones, unbeatable classics for those who do not want to risk it.
Two straps with tortoiseshell buckles, Ancient Greek Sandals (114 euros); with embossed snake-effect leather, Massimo Dutti (99.95 euros), and Roman aesthetics of Unisa (54.95 euros).
Of course, we have chosen the most relaxed models, the most representative, but which do not take the trend of ‘dad sandals’ to the extreme. If you do not dare in the day to day work for any reason, maybe you can start by wearing them on weekends at home, and you will see how you will surrender to their lasts.
Black with buckles, Birkenstock (64.95 euros); with esparto sole and strass, Zara (49.95 euros), and with elastic bands, Gunner for Zalando (23.99 euros).
Not all professions allow a permanent ‘casual friday’, so you do not have to give up comfort, but always within aesthetic standards. The keys to being very comfortable at work is that your shoe is neutral, that does not attract attention (and yes, for us the animal print is, the Dolce and Gabbana they know fashion and think the same).
Leopard print sandals by Topshop (15.95 euros); with a centimeter platform and furry sole, 3.1 Phillip Lim (90 euros), and wide leather straps, of Aldo (54.95 euros).
With a centimeter
You can go comfortable, flat but climb a couple of centimeters, enough so that your sandals do not become flat shapes on which to balance, but yes to give a little height to the shorter ones. Ladies, what is courteous does not detract from what is brave.
Green knotted sandals by Ganni (114 euros); braided raffia Robert Clergerie (125 euros), and nude leather cross, of ATP Atelier (119 euros). All in Outnet.com
