Newsflash: sandal’s aren’t just for summer. With shearling in high demand across fashion (see Telfar x UGG and the new edition of Jacquemus’ Chiquito), along with a newfound need for comfort post-pandemic, shoes are no exception. Once widely considered a fashion-faux-pas, attitudes towards socks and sandals have shifted, and you can now rock your summer kicks all year round with the inclusion of some thick socks to keep you warm throughout winter.
Coupled with the rise of kidcore, one brand who are fully embracing this trend is Crocs: releasing a collection of classic lined clogs. These fleece-lined versions of the OG slipper are equipped to ensure maximum comfort and toastiness, even in single-digit temperatures.
In other potential winter sandal options, Kanye West and adidas’ YEEZY operation has dropped two slides and the Foam Runner, while dedicated sandal-brand Birkenstock and has benefited from being the go-to for all things sandal prior to the pandemic.
We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite sandals for winter: some already built for outdoors and equipped with weatherproof details, while others are perfect for indoor coziness or pairing with a sock – which is a whole other story.
