Once considered a fashion faux pas, pairing socks with sandals has made a full 180 recently, with stylish celebrities such as Tyler, the Creator rocking the look, plus sightings on the runway via Maison Kitsuné, Wood Wood, and Opening Ceremony, to name a few. With so-called “ugly” sneakers and general style irony still very much a thing, it was only natural that this jarring pairing would eventually be shown some love.
If you’re ready to cover your toes while wearing your freshly copped Spring/Summer slides and sandals, you’re going to need an eye-catching pair of socks. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to bring your summer footwear look to life, featuring streetwear labels such as 1017 ALYX 9SM and ADER Error, as well as luxury fashion houses Fendi and Burberry.
Those looking to make a statement need look no further than Richer Poorer‘s wavy tie-dye pair or Kapital‘s smiley yarn option. That said, if you’re looking to embrace a flex-worthy aesthetic, we’re also fond of Burberry‘s monogram socks or Gucci‘s striped and tiger patch offerings.
