Once considered a fashion crime, socks with sandals has taken a full 180 turn recently, with everyone from stylish celebrities such as Tyler, The Creator rocking the look, plus runway renditions by Maison Kitsuné, WOOD WOOD, Opening Ceremony, and more. With so-called “ugly” sneakers still very much a trend, it was only natural that this jarring pairing got shown some love.
And if you’re ready to cover your feet in your freshly-copped spring/summer slides and sandals, you’ll want to be rocking an eye-catching pair of socks. Here, we’ve rounded up some of our very favorites to bring your footwear to life, featuring high-street labels such as COS, streetwear OGs Carhartt WIP, and even luxury fashion house Gucci.
Those looking to make a real statement needn’t look much further than Suicoke‘s wavey tie-dye pair or A-COLD-WALL*’s bright yellow, logo-printed options. That said, if you’re looking to emulate a lower-key, chic aesthetic in the coming months, we’re also fond of Jacquemus‘ two-tone beige socks, or Issey Miyake‘s all-white Tabi socks for sandals with a toe-split.
