8 expensive-looking summer sandals for under €50

8 expensive-looking summer sandals for under €50

On the search for the perfect summer sandal but don’t want to break the bank? Here are 8 expensive-looking summer sandals for under €50


While the weather is not in our favour right now, that doesn’t mean we can’t stock up on summer stocking fillers.

The summer sandal is synonymous with lunches by the sea and long walks by the canals of Europe in a midi dress with a book in hand. Europe may only be a pipe dream this year, so a weekend in Westport seems more realistic.

If this is to be true, then make sure to make Westport, Ballybunion or Lahinch your runway. Put on the fabulous summer dress, the sassy sandals, and get your book and make the most of our summer months.

Affordable

Because our climate is not of the Mediterranean persuasion, some of you might feel a little hesitant in spending on a pair of sandals that may merely get a handful of wears.

Luckily, with all of the sartorial splendour at our fingertips, it’s quite easy to find a good quality pair at a fraction of the price.

Look to staple colours such as brown, nude and black and stick to leather for durability and longevity. If choosing something brighter, search for design features such as a print effect or a buckle – these little details help to elevate the shoe to something more intricate.

Here we have compiled a list of eight of the most expensive-looking sandals for under €50. ASOS, as always, has come out on top for its sizable selection of styles. While Topshop, River Island, H&M and Zara keep it trend-led and affordable.

Topshop buckled sliders in tan croc, €26.27 at Asos

ALDO Yilania flat sandal in black leather, €48.39 at Asos

Metallic heeled platform sandals, €39.95 at Zara

Beige cross-over wooden heel sandal, €45 at River Island

Cream ring detail snake print leather scrappy sandals, €39 at Charles & Keith

Narla pink strap mini heels, €36 at Topshop

Leather slides, €39.99 at H&M
