We’ve all heard of the “dad sneaker” trend, which involves wearing kicks that you may traditionally find a father rocking in his off hours. These days, the style is made to look more modern by adding some much-needed trendy touches — like a fun platform heel or other chunky details. Well, the same can be done with sporty sandals!
These shoes typically have a velcro strap and tend to be made from lightweight materials ideal for long wear, but they’re not always the cutest. It’s a fact! With that in mind, we went on the hunt for a pair of sporty-looking sandals that actually look chic — and scored exactly that when we spotted these sandals from Dansko!See it!
The en vogue platform heel we mentioned earlier is perfectly executed in these shoes. It gets thicker toward the back of the foot which gives your silhouette extra height, and we adore the curvy stripe detail along the sides. Each pair features a different main color while the stripe strikes a beautiful contrast, making the central hue pop that much more. There are a total of four solid shades to choose from, as well as one multicolored pastel option that’s seriously fitting for spring!
Most people wear sporty sandals for the comfort value over their look, and these shoes definitely deliver in that department. They’re light as can be so they won’t weight you down despite their chunkier look — and the footbed is curved to contour the arches on your feet! You can also use the velcro straps on the toe and around the ankle to adjust them to your desired spot.See it!
Shoppers that claim they have tested out multiple pairs of comfy sandals claim that these were the winners from the bunch! These sandals are excellent for everyday wear, and you can team them with tons of different ensembles. Throw them on with leggings, jeans, shorts or even dresses! They’re incredibly versatile, and the type of comfy sandal that doesn’t look too sporty — but secretly is. If these shoes are not exactly your style but you want to nail the same comfort level, check out these slides from CUSHIONAIRE, these wedges from Clarks or these sandals from Sorel!
