Fisherman Sandals Are Fast Becoming a Summer Staple – Here Are 14 Pairs We Love

If you buy one pair, 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, and it looks like these extra chunky sandals are going absolutely no where. In fact, I can only see this trend getting bigger and bigger.

From Prada to Miu Miu, there are so many designer styles to feast your eyes on – but there are plenty of high street styles too for those on a budget.

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.

So without further ado, let me show you the best pairs I’ve found for the summer ahead. Now all we need is some sunshine to go with them…
