Men's sandals break old taboos

Even if catwalks paved their way by pairing them with all kinds of outfits, and not just super sporty ones, for many men sandals remain a taboo, to be worn exclusively at the beach or swimming pool – and even then mainly in the form of flip-flops. However, sandals now range from sophisticated styles with criss-crossed leather straps to logo-embossed leather slippers, from sporty models with Velcro fasteners to cage models or sandals with plaited/interwoven straps. High-quality materials, ergonomic footbeds and cushioned insoles are elements that can make men’s sandals comfortable and versatile shoes to be worn casually with cargo Bermuda shorts or even linen suits. True connoisseurs and ‘Made in Italy’ enthusiasts can indulge in handcrafted sandals, strictly in leather and with a vintage allure. A perfect balance of traditional and trendy!
