Dante Strappy Gladiator Sandal
Summertime and the living’s easy. In other words, when things start to get hot, we’d rather be spending more time in the sun than inside stressing, so anything that offers instant warm weather chic is a win in our books. Mixing a tough girl attitude with vacation vibes that remind us of chilling by the Mediterranean sea, this Dante Strappy Gladiator Sandal hits that benchmark with flying colors. A fashion cocktail of our favorite summer shoe trends, it combines gladiator style straps with an espadrille sole for the perfect combo of comfort with an edge. The woven jute textured sole and the contrast white stitching all around the foot give this shoe a rustic look, while a series of black vegan leather straps that criss cross across the front reminds us of gladiator sandals, and balance the design out with a punk edge. A matching strap wraps around the back of the ankle and features an adjustable buckle with pegs, meaning you can fix the shoe for the perfect fit.
A twist on two classic sandal styles, the Dante Sandal is a no-brainer for throwing on with pants as the weather warms up, or a skirt during the height of summer. Heck, pair it with shorts too. It’s an extra versatile shoe that scores well on style whether you’re hanging out by the beach, or at a pool resort, or hitting the city streets for some urban exploration—a bonus if you’re going on vacation and have limited packing space. Oh, and did we mention it’s not just about looks either? This shoe has a memory cushion insole, meaning it’s insanely comfortable, and the strap design also means that, unlike other sandal styles, it stays securely on your foot, which gives you extra freedom for whatever you’re doing. In other words, we may have found the ideal all purpose summer sandal.
