Sandal season has arrived, and no guy should be left out in the cold. So, if you think opened-up looks are not your thing, it’s time to think again. If you’re not quite ready for a dress-up style to wear on date night, that doesn’t mean you need to rule out the category completely. There are plenty of casual versions in familiar silhouettes that include the ubiquitous flip-flop and criss-cross style to sport designs, that will have you feeling comfortably cool.
Still not ready to go bare this summer. Consider getting your feet in shape with a pedicure. There are lots of spas for men these days that can take any anxiety out of the experience.
Here, Footwear News has curated some of the season’s best sandal looks for men.
