A recent little mooch around TK Maxx saw me throw about five pairs of sandals (including those above) into my trolley. Of COURSE I always grab a trolley – don’t you? Who knows what you might find.
Anyway, it became immediately apparent that I gravitate towards sandals that looks as though they have been made by a Greek leather artisan. Flat, two-strap, simple design and made from soft leather = massive footwear thumbs up from me. PS, I only actually bought the brown pair above as the dusty pink pair were too tight sadly.
In terms of beautiful leather sandals, the ultimate are the designs by Ancient Greek Sandals. Founded five years ago, the brand aim to give a nod to mythical Ancient Greece, combining the simplicity of the simple sandal but with a high end finish. I love their designs and have included their DRAMA style below in my edit.
Also, a big shout out to a brand I never thought would be featured on The Edited – but I have been well and truly converted. FitFlop‘s ‘Banda’ leather sandal – which I am wearing in black in the above shot – has been a revelation to my feet and wardrobe. In case you had ideas they were all about a chunky platform and a toe thong, have a look at the brand’s new collection because I was surprised by the simplicity and, well, sophistication of this style. I’ve featured the tan version of mine below.
Here are my picks of the best tan leather sandals at the moment.
(And talking of Ancient Greek Sandals, you could even get a pair for your mini me with these super cute versions from Zara Kids…I MEAN!)
