Girls' sandals are often worn in the warmer months, as they have an open top which allows for more air to circulate around the feet. It is also quite common for sandals to be worn all year round, favouring the open design due to increased comfort and the added style.
Many major footwear manufacturers produce sandals, including household names such as Clarks, Next and adidas, as well as brands which have become increasingly popular over recent years, such as Crocs or Birkenstock.
Sandals come in a variety of materials, with the common theme being the strappy nature of the fastening around a girl's feet. Rubber, canvas and leather sandals are the most common types of girl's footwear, each of which having its own properties and advantages for either comfort or for matching with an outfit.
Some Types of Girls' Sandals
Classic girls' sandals feature a mostly open design with straps around the foot and ankle. These girls' shoes are perfect for wearing in the summer as they offer support and breathability. Some girls' sandals are similar to a flip flop with a divider for the toes, a flat base and a basic strap design to keep the sandal attached.
Dressier styles of girls' sandals include closed toe glossy designs. These sandals feature higher ankle support and are secured with a clasp. These girls' shoe s are perfect for a more formal occasions and emulate the look of the classic high heel without the discomfort.
Perfect for comfort and durability, gel and silicone girls' sandals are available in a range of designs. From the classic Croc sandal with customisable plastic charms, to more open gel models, these sandals are perfect for long days out in the summer; they are soft and durable, allowing your child to get a lot of use without feeling uncomfortable. Slip-on sandals are also perfect for younger children as they fit snugly and give ease of access.
