Much of the East Coast got pounded by a nor’easter earlier this week, but that hasn’t stopped guys from thinking about sunny days ahead. While summer means sandal season, there are many who can’t bear the thought of baring their toes.
No need to panic. For the men who want the comfort of an open shoe style without showing their feet, there are a range of sandal styles with plenty of foot coverage. One way to go is the classic fisherman style, a woven design that’s closed at the toe, but boasts gaps to allow for a cool breeze. Or, consider the range of slides designed with full-coverage uppers.
Here, FN has rounded up a selection of open, yet closed sandal styles.
