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

Fashion seems to move towards the 90s more and more by the day. Whether it’s shoulder bags (Carrie Bradshaw’s long-time companion), scarves worn as hair accessories, mini skirts, slouchy jeans or resin jewellery, we’re utterly obsessed with the era – and caged sandals are reemerging too.

Fisherman sandals are reminiscent of 90s footwear, but this time around the shoes are chic and sharp. Gone is the jelly glitter, replaced for perfect white or matte black leather.

Luxury labels The Row and Gabriella Hurst started the trend and now the high street is getting involved. From Zara’s cage sandals, to Next’s unbelievably affordable pair, we’ve found 17 of the best affordable fisherman sandals you can buy now.
