For example, a “clog” is a heavy sandal, having a thick, typically wooden sole, while a “jipsin” is sandal made of straw that originated in Korea. “Caligae” is a heavy-soled Roman military shoe or sandal and the list can go on.

Sandals have of course originated in areas with hot climates, such as Southern Italy, Greece or Egypt. Of course, this is why today we wear them in summer. Sandals are great to be worn in summer because they allow your feet to breath and because of this, you will feel comfortable and will develop less bacteria than you would with a closed shoe.

Sandals are the high-end version of the slipper. Slippers should only be worn at the beach or in a similar environment, while sandals can be worn on many other occasions. However, we would not recommend wearing sandals at the office.

Can you wear sandals with socks? This is a very big thing among sandal wearers. Well, basically, sandals are there to let your feet breathe, so adding socks would seem unnecessary. Some brands, however, like Bottega Veneta, experimented with socks and sandals. We would draw the line and say that the rules are: you can wear sandals with socks, but the socks need to be dressy, they can’t be sports socks and you can’t wear sandals and socks if your sandals have a strap that divides your first two toes.

So, here are some sandals that are really cool for this summer. We chose the ones we found had more of a distinct and original design, so let us know which one are your picks:

This sandal by ASOS is probably one of the most classic sandal type, but you know we love a classic. This is a classic design with a modern twist. We love the shape of the sandal, but also the fact that it is open but still holds you foot well. This sandal is one of our favorites because it is chic and hand-made. Leather is probably the best fabric for sandals, and you want to search for something that fits your needs and personality Dolce and Gabbana made this almost sculptural sandal. They always have something to show. This DIMISSIANOS & MILLER handmade sandal is probably one of our favorite sandals, because it is just elegant, visually interesting and comfortable. Gucci suggests these sandals, which are a little weird, but maybe that's what makes them special. This sandal with a zip offers great support for your heel and also gives a futuristic vibe. Lanvin is always amazing, and so are these sandals. This is a minimalist Kurt Geiger sandal, for the man who doesn't want flash. Of course, how can you not love a shoe in this color?
