Hints & Tips

  • When you choose a pair of beach sandals make sure the design is easy maintenance – full grain leather is an ideal choice because they will last for years as long as you look after them. If you can find leather sandals that have a moisture-managing inner soil they will be super comfortable to wear.
  • When you choose a pair of flip flops make sure they contour well to your foot – the foot bed should be flexible but sturdy at the same time.
  • Go for sandals with heel cups that keep you foot nicely in place on walks and when you’re on the dance floor.
  • Sandals with full leather linings will help draw moisture away from your feet – this will keep them cooler and drier no matter how hot it gets!
  • Change sandals at least twice a day to give your feet a break.
  • If your sandals get wet at the beach, make sure you dry them in a cool shady place that’s out of direct sunlight, this way your precious summer ladies sandals will look great right through the season!
