Sandals, the seasonally appropriate footwear for summer
Like clothing, footwear
must also be adapted to the change in season. With closed shoes too uncomfortable for the hot weather, sandals are the footwear of choice for the summer, securing the ninth spot in our list.
Sandals have evolved since they were first made and used in Egypt 5,100 years ago. Flat styles like pool slides and gladiator sandals offer maximum comfort. Those looking to add some length to their frame can go for block heels, wedges or clogs. Some things to consider when choosing a sandal include the activities where the sandals would be used, fit, materials, straps, arch support, flexibility, and cushioning.
