Final Touch: It’s Okay to Wear Sandals, Even Strappy Ones
There was a time where men wore sandals. You know who those men were? Gladiators. For a while, some people spread rumours that men’s sandals (mandals) weren’t okay. They claimed they were a woman’s shoe. Well, it’s time to take back your sandal wearing rights, and honour those gladiators. Why? Because they look great and are actually very practical.
For days where you’re running around town, you need to be comfortable. Sandals, being made of less material, will keep your feet (and the rest of your body) much cooler during the day. They give heat another place to escape, letting you feel the wind between your toes. We suggest a well structured pair, with a contrasting sole to keep things interesting. The leather straps make them a little more serious than your average flip-flop, and they just get better with age. Everything else is simple—play up the brown colors by mixing in complimentary accessories, like a good pair of sunglasses, and a watch. Finally, don’t leave home without your backpack, especially if you’ve got a day full of errands to do (or if you need some road sodas).
