On every thread where someone posts a picture of sandals to ask for advice, theres always a chorus of 'hideous', 'granny', 'fugly' etc. So please share some photos of sandals that you think are nice, stylish, chic, non-stomach-churning, whatever. Bear in mind that many of us need sandals to be comfortable and suitable for lots of walking. I promise no snarky comments!

Birkenstock arizonas. Everyone compliments. Older ladies to 7 year olds grin

Having been told my (quite deliberately fugly) sandals are apparently hideous, I’m staying out of this and watching avidly.

Blondie, they're v nice, but not a style I could walk far in, or drive probably

I have these ones from Moda in Pelle.

Look on en Brogue Instagram, scroll back to last summer.

These are mine from River Island.

Well I like them anyway as they're comfy & go with my jeans, shorts & skirts, I like the colour.

See those ones posted so far are far too pretty and dainty for my troll feet! I am size 7 and so wide that I cannot even get my feet into most sandals.

I had a pair of Office copy birkenstocks and whilst they have lasted a good few years, after a day of school runs my feet and legs ached.

Is it possible to find a pair of sandals that look nice, are wide, and comfortable for around 5-6 miles of walking every day?

I need wide ones with a decent strap and no toe post. Bit stumped at the moment but I'm sure I'll get something.

or end up with 90p ones from primark again

I'm a big fan of Ancient Greek Sandals after DH bought me a pair three years ago. I've now got about 5 pairs. Extremely comfortable, leather and really stylish.

Lottapianos Mon 15-Apr-19 19:26:19

They're lovely tierra

Alsohuman Mon 15-Apr-19 19:28:08

Damn your eyes! Just looked at Ancient Greek sandals and I now want several pairs.

I'm thinking about these although I'm not sure if they will be a bit plasticy.

tierraJ Mon 15-Apr-19 19:32:11

Thanks Lotta

MotherForkinShirtBalls Mon 15-Apr-19 19:32:45

Should have clarified, they are vegan so I'm not sure of the fabrics used.

tierraJ Mon 15-Apr-19 19:33:36

The sandals I've posted also come in Wide Fit

I've had several pairs of Sanuk yoga slings. V comfortable, stay on feet well, and there are lots of different colours.

YesQueen Mon 15-Apr-19 19:43:52

I have the old version of these (nude with a diamanté strip)

And these

Not at home so cannot take actual photo but these are my favourite sandals. From River Island. I just love them. Bought them a few years ago. Replaced them with a never worn pair from eBay. Had soles repaired by cobbler a few weeks ago in readiness for Summer.

They are so lovely, make jingly jangly sounds and look so pretty with white nail polish and tanned feet. smile

animaginativeusername Mon 15-Apr-19 21:46:08

My favourite, love these. So comfortable and practical

animaginativeusername Mon 15-Apr-19 21:47:04

But mine aren't hideous - I think

Fairylea Mon 15-Apr-19 21:49:08

I have just purchased two pairs of saltwater sandals - yellow ones and red ones. I know they’re like marmite on mumsnet, love or hate them etc. I think they’re lovely, and they’re very comfortable- although they don’t have any padding underfoot.

I also love Birkenstock’s but dh absolutely hates them grin I don’t give a toss and wear them regardless. I just think it’s amusing how much he really hates them.

Applesbananaspears Mon 15-Apr-19 21:51:43

I love metallic sandals like these, so comfortable and go with everything

Refilona Mon 15-Apr-19 21:53:10

Tierra’s and MotherForkin’s are nice, all the other ones I find very ugly - I think sandals is a very polarising subject!
