It's getting very hot where i live... Anyone got any suggestions for comfortable, relatively nice-looking sandals that I could wear with shorts or a skirt?
My feet are a total mess with creaking huge bunions and osteoarthritis in all the joints, and I can't do toe-posts due to the level of wreckage of my big and second toes. So if possible i'd like to have hiking-sandal soles (for support) with something relatively sedate and leather over the top. A few years ago there were some quite presentable ones like that (made by Teva? or Columbia?) but there don't seem to be any nice ones around any more.
Everything either looks flatly uncomfortable or truly hideous at the moment.
I have bunions too, and need very wide fit sandals with a gap at the sides for the bunion to poke through. Anything with a continuous strap over the part of my feet with the bunion on it is a complete no go.
Last year, I struck lucky and bought four identical pairs of sandals in different colours. They were the gladiator plait sandals in m and s wide fit footglove collection. They have a version for this summer too. Size up, as the strap near the ankle is fully adjustable. The sole is quite cushioned.
Try this firm here They have lots of widths up to 8E & even different depths of toe box. Make shoes, sandals & boots so quite a variety of styles if you look through the site. They are an established British firm, based in Northamptonshire, that gets good reviews for quality & customer service.
