With year-round use of sandals vindicated — and summer just around the corner in the northern hemisphere — a luxury pair feels justified. The higher-quality construction, materials, and embellishments that tend to come with luxury sandals lend themselves to styling with pants of all kinds and getting away with it.

If you can’t tell already, we’re going all-in on sandals for the foreseeable, so we’ve rounded up the best luxury sandals for men to see you through summer 2021 and all the way into deep fall.

Brands such as Gucci, Jil Sander, and Balenciaga provide a wide range of styles. We‘ve included everything from wild and new to tried and trusted; almost too many straps to barely hanging on; leather and suede to jelly and EVA. This is your one-stop shop for the best luxury sandals for men.
