Chanel Just Created the "Dad" Sandal, and Fashion Girls Are Going for It

There is no end, apparently, to us taking inspo from our fathers' wardrobes. While "dad" sneakers have had a moment for a while, it's now the turn of the "dad" sandals. And thanks to Chanel, fashion girls are going for it. But before we go into why we love the French fashion house's creation, we should explain how a sandal gets defined as a "dad" sandal. Firstly, it must be functional. Ideally, the straps should be made from velcro to allow easy access. The shoe should also have a chunky enough sole to give the foot support. Finally, it shouldn't appear out of place if you wear a pair of socks with them. Ultimately, the look you're going for is rambler meets fashion editor. While Chanel has created a gorgeous black pair, the likes of Prada and Marni are also in on the act too. Ready to see the Chanel sandal in action?
