The Best Designer Sandals Of 2021 Revealed

The sandal is the perfect shoe for summer, as the stylish option conjures up thoughts of fun adventures in the sun. While there are a variety of styles out there — from flip-flops to gladiator sandals to Birkenstocks — a designer pair is a high-quality and stylish choice that can be mixed and matched with numerous outfits.

For instance, there are The Row Bare Mid-Heel Leather Slingback Sandals, which feature slender straps and a squared stiletto heel, and there are the Etro Paisley Print Flat Sandals that add a playful pop to looks (via Editorialist).

From Jimmy Choo, there are the Narisa Leopard Print Twist Slide Sandals. This pair has suede straps that are twisted together and a leopard print that can go with anything and everything, as noted by Candie Anderson.

Furthermore, Prada has the Rope Flat Sporty Sandals, while Gucci has a transparent slide sandal that features its iconic logo, as seen via PopSugar. For a true standout work of art, there are the Valentino Garavani Women's Atelier 03 Rose Edition Sandals, that are sure to turn heads.

The hottest designer sandals of the year feature trendy straps and prints

Some more designer sandals for this year are raffia slides from Bottega Veneta. Design elements in this shoe include a square-toe silhouette, twisted toe straps, and smooth leather footbeds. If raffia isn't your thing, the Mallorca rubber slides from Balenciaga are the perfect shoe for lounging at home or soaking up rays by the pool. The funky and trendy accents here are translucent rubber, thick soles, and buckles.

In 2021, Burberry has a sandal with leather trim and striped velcro-fastening canvas straps. An edgier pair is the Valentino Garavani Roman Stud Leather Sandals, which have a cage-like silhouette and pyramid-shaped embellishments. If you're looking for more options, the Chanel Calfskin Blue Sandals put chains and a unique color on display. The Miu Miu Women's Calzature Donna Slingback Knotted Sandals are chunky and plush in all the right ways, too, so this option won't disappoint (via PopSugar).

Whichever shoe you pick, you are sure to elevate your summer ensembles and look oh-so fashionable all season long!
