Nine pairs of the best flat summer sandals from the high street

The sun is shining… today anyway. So embrace the summertime vibe by shopping some of the best summer sandals in stores now. Here are nine of the finest…

I like the mix of textures offered by these Zara flats – suede, leather and tortoiseshell – and the fact that they’re a wear-with-anything kind of shoe.

Leather sandals with tortoiseshell buckle, €39.95 at Zara

These glamorous, glittery, barely-there sandals are perfect for summer evenings out.

Every woman needs a classic tan leather sandal in her summer arsenal, and this pair from & Other Stories fit the bill perfectly.

These sandals from Maje are a great statement summer shoe. The vibrant shade of raspberry red will punctuate seasonal neutrals nicely.

These classic tan leather sandals are given a whimsical makeover with pretty seashell embellishments at Mango. Perfect for a beach holiday.

If summer clothes can sometimes feel a little too floaty or feminine for you, anchor them with a cool zebra print shoe like these from Massimo Dutti.

At just €10, these dusty pink sandals are a great pair of extras to bring away with you on holiday.

If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, these sandals are made from 80 per cent recycled nylon. The sturdy sole makes them a great option for anyone heading off on a city break.
