It’s officially sandal season and fashion is having its moment with them.

From designer Anna Sui teaming up with Teva for some “ugly sandals” to the naked shoe having its moment, we’re seeing eight distinct styles that are coming in hot this summer.

Also known as the “ugly sandal,” Tevas are taking over this summer. While there are several styles, this beige Teva Midform Universal Leather sandal is the perfect shoe to pair with your look, whether you’re going monochrome or simply wanting a beige element to neutralize your look.
