Fisherman Sandals Are The Only Shoes I Want This Summer

Like most fashion girlies, I have a thing for shoes. But being a New Yorker, I’ve also been forced to categorize my footwear collection into walkable (meaning appropriate for the city I live in) and aspirational (aka better for L.A. or anywhere that I’ll primarily be in a car) options. But just because a style fits into the first group doesn’t mean it’s a boring or beleaguered runner-up in my closet. On the contrary, I live for finding the season’s most comfortable and stylish shoes, and in the summer that obviously means open-toe designs. Fisherman sandals in particular are my latest shoe du jour, and according to my social media feeds, I’m not the only one obsessed with this perfect transitional style.

While I was all about daintier shoe styles like Mary Janes Hoka One One during the colder months, I’m usually drawn to a more substantial, chunky sandal for the summer. It can toughen up a more feminine look — slinky silk dresses are a favorite — or add some weight to an oversized silhouette, like longline shorts and a men’s button-up shirt. Plus, there’s something eternally classic about the fisherman style, while it’s still bit unexpected compared to the popular two-strap Birkenstock look. The extra details around the toe keep things interesting without feeling like so much of a statement shoe; instead, it strikes the perfect balance for anyone looking to add a slightly masculine edge to their outfit.

Because sometimes I just can’t help myself, this clog-meets-fisherman sandal shoe from MIISTA is all my favorite trends in one scrumptious style. The ‘70s vibes are strong here, so I think wearing these with my favorite sunny yellow halter neck jumpsuit is the right move.

Monolith Rubber Fisherman Sandals
Prada
Monolith Rubber Fisherman Sandals
$690
Are these Barbie pink Prada sandals a wee bit insane? Definitely. But there’s nothing like wearing a shoe that’s both a conversation starter and a potential rubber swim floaty to make your outfit feel extra special.

Khaite
The Perry Sandal
$780
If a slip-on sandal is more your speed, this Khaite design is a more minimal choice for anyone curious to try the fisherman trend. Dark brown shoes are highly underrated in my opinion, and I’d love to wear this pair with a low-cut red dress for a summer night out.

The Row
Fisherman Sandal
$990
Say what you will, but the Olsen twins make an exceptional leather shoe. When you walk as much as we do in New York City, a high quality and buttery soft sandal feels entirely worth the splurge.

Ever catch a whiff of a smell, be it a fragrance, flower, or food, and instantly get transported to another time and place? That’s the beauty of scent, which has a tight-knit connection with your memory—and therefore the ability to bring back the past in a single sniff.

And while it might feel like magic, it’s actually a matter of science. Research has found that your olfactory network—a.k.a. your sense of smell—has a tighter Clarks Shoes relationship with the hippocampus, the part of the brain that’s key to learning and memory, than other senses like taste and sight. That means that when it comes to making memories (and, of course, hanging onto them), nothing beats the nose.

Unique notes

Super-fruity florals, step aside. The top notes of citrusy bergamot and pink pepper are intertwined with lemon for an uplifting feeling at first spritz—think standing in a swath of sunlight after a long winter. It then dries down to coconut milk and heliotrope (a flower known for its sweet scent) to elicit sun-kissed skin, a feeling that sticks with you during the day even if a beach trip isn’t in the cards.

Super-fresh scent

Inspired by the brine of the ocean and warm sunlight, this one-of-a-kind fragrance proves both comforting and refreshing — you know, sort of like summer itself. With that said, if you’re someone who tends to be partial to light, yet balmy scents reminiscent of gorgeous summer nights, then Beach Walk was definitely made to be your new year round signature scent.

Nostalgic vibes

Ever wish you could go back to the easygoing days where you’d spend all day at the beach, relishing the warm sand between your toes and the scent of salty air mixed with sunscreen? Well, this fragrance can you take right back to that spot — regardless of the season. That’s right, you can don this scent during fall, winter, and spring to get your summertime fix, because it works (and garners complements) no matter what.
