The great summer sandal hunt is now upon us, and if you're looking for a smart pair for weddings or work, we advise you opt for a low block-heel style. Luckily you won't have to extend your search far, as every retailer (from Gucci to Mango) is seriously into these comfortable sandals, which give you extra height but are comfortable enough that you can wear them all day without wincing while you walk.
On our must-have list are a pair of sleek black sandals from Zara, Mango's python-tipped slingbacks, and gorgeous blue-satin block-heel mules from Etro. If you're willing to spend, however, you'll want to see Gucci's beautiful metallic sandals with the gold double-G logo on the toe strap—totally worth saving for. Scroll through our gallery to see the block-heel sandals on our radar right now.
