    Flat Sandals are the ultimate summer staple, and as the warm weather grows ever closer, it’s time to start shopping those new-season styles.

    When choosing which sandals you’ll wear day after day, comfort is a major factor. Luckily for us, SS16 has championed the sensible, fuss-free flat to see us through the balmy summer months in comfortable style.

    Pool slides are still going strong, whether it be a sturdy pair of rubber Hunter slides, or APC’s oh-so-chic black leather style.

    On the designer front, Isabel Marant cleverly re-worked the gladiator sandal in super-wearable neutral tones. No 21 went for maximum impact with luxe-looking lace ups, while Mansur Gavriel gave the humble flat sandals a new-season twist with some statement cobalt suede detailing.

    As ever, Zara has offered up a whole selection of wearable styles, most notably the barely-there slip on sandal.

    Fashion’s favourite new footwear designer Paul Andrew has your boho needs covered.

    Lastly, and most suprisingly, the hiking sandal. Yes, the ultra-practical camping shoe has had a cool-girl makeover and is now a summer must-have. Should you be feeling brave enough to take on the trend, head to Whistles for their snake option.

    So if you’re looking to amp up your flat shoe wardrobe ahead of the summer season, you’re guaranteed to find something in our flat sandal edit.
