Sandals used to be divisive, but then again, so did Crocs and hiking sneakers. We’ve entered a brave new world of footwear where everything goes and isn’t it a nicer place to exist? Now that spring’s here and summer’s lining up, a pair of high-quality sandals should be top of your priorities list.

As a side-product of the explosion in popularity of sandals, we’ve of course seen labels putting more effort into their offerings. That means it’s never been a better time to cop a pair.

With the help of Luisaviaroma, we’ve rounded up the 10 pairs of sandals on our shopping list for the coming season. Ranging from The Row to Crocs, our roundup covers all sides of the open-toe spectrum.
