Fisherman Sandals Are Set To Be the Shoes of the Summer – Here Are 21 Pairs We Love

If you were planning on buying one pair of sandals this summer, make it these.

If you haven’t got a pair of fisherman sandals yet, I’m convinced you’ll soon be swayed.

Fashion seems to be moving closer towards the 90s by the day. Whether it’s shoulder bags (Carrie Bradshaw’s long-time companion), mini skirts or resin jewellery, we’re utterly obsessed with the era – and the caged sandals that are re-emerging too.

I first started noticing the trend appearing on my Instagram feed last summer, but I think this year will be the year they really explode. From Prada to Miu Miu, there are so many designer styles to feast your eyes on this year.

While Prada has dropped theirs in an array of colours, you’ll mostly see these in sleek black and white leather, while tan is a popular choice too.

From Zara’s cage sandals, to Next’s unbelievably affordable pair, we’ve found the best fisherman sandals you can buy now – with options to suit every budget.

From Prada’s investment pair with chunky soles, to one style under £30 from ASOS, feast your eyes on these.
