Thanks to this weekend's heat wave, many of us are now on a frantic sandal hunt. If you are yet to have any success on your shopping mission, as ever, we're here to cut out hours of trawling the internet to find you the perfect pair.
We've put together the ultimate shortlist of the sandals that will see you through the entire summer. After a tea break debate in the Who What Wear office, our fashion editors decided that there are five key styles of sandals that will see you through every summer event going. First up, we have the minimal city-appropriate leather sandal, followed by the practical chunky style, which will work for coastal walks or a day of intense sight-seeing. Then on the other end of the sandals spectrum, we have the ultimate wedding guest shoe—block heel sandals—and summer fashion sandals. Last but not least, we have the holiday sandal made for shuffling between the pool and the beach.
