Summer Sandals

Posted by Anna S. on

Summer is here and that means it’s sandal season! Choosing a pair that’s right for you can be a daunting task. Today I’m going to profile four of my top sandal picks for men and women from ShoeStores.com.

1. Men’s Keen Newport H2 – Dark Earth / Acacia

The Keen Newport H2 is the ultimate summer adventure sandal.  Hiking, creek stomping, and climbing hills are just a few of the activities you can perform in this outdoor shoe.  A secure lace system allows you to tighten the upper for a custom fit every time.  This style also features a washable, polyester upper so mud stains won’t be an issue.  Last, but certainly not least, forget about stubbing your toes thanks to Keen’s patented toe protectors.  Did I mention we carry them for men, women & kids in every color and pattern under the rainbow?

2. Women’s Clarks Arla Jacory – Black Elastic

This women’s sandal is the perfect mix of casual and cool.  The Arla Jacory by Clarks features a modest wedge in a color blocked pattern, a Clarks Cushion Soft™ footbed, and adjustable elastic straps.  You’re not going to break an ankle or the bank with these quality shoes.  Slip the Arla Jacory sandal on with a gauzy skirt and call it a day!

3. Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed - Brown Amalfi Leather 

There’s a reason Birkenstock sandals are a cult classic.   This particular Arizona model features a leather upper which provides a feeling of luxuriousness.  This is the perfect sandal for a tropical island getaway!  The Arizona sandal has two buckles that adjust to give you the most perfect fit for your foot while a soft, contoured, cork footbed provides you with endless comfort throughout the day.  This beautiful shoe is constructed in Germany and delivers the quality you have come to expect from Birkenstock.

4. Women's VIONIC Somoa Slide Sandal – Black

VIONIC is a new brand for us here at ShoeStores.com & Stout’s Footwear and we could not be happier with all of the positive feedback we’re receiving from our fabulous customers!  All of the VIONIC styles have been a hit, but the Somoa Slide Sandal really sticks out.  VIONIC sandals are great for people who have plantar fasciitis as Orthaheel Technology is made to hug your arches and support your heels.  A decorative, adjustable upper keeps your feet looking and feeling great.  This style is effortless as it looks amazing and slides on with ease.   This could be your new go-to sandal for the season!

The above sandals are just a small selection of the great styles we carry on our website and our in our shoe stores.  If you ever have any questions or need help finding the shoes that are right for you, don’t hesitate to reach out!  We’re always happy to help.  Now get out there and enjoy your summer!
