Your Guide to Summer Sandals 2021

Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to get your summer wardrobe sorted. While your trainers and boots can still be worn year-round, no warm-weather wardrobe is complete without a pair of summer sandals. Whether your summer plans consist of walks along the beach, countryside strolls or barbecues in the garden, sandals are the perfect summer companion for any occasion.

What are the best shoes for summer?

Comfort is key during hot weather, and sandals ensure that your feet can breathe as the temperature increases. Always consider material when choosing summer sandals, as you want to ensure they wick away sweat and keep your feet as dry as possible. From flat sandals to wedges, walking sandals to sports sandals, at Clarks we have a summer shoe for everyone.

Best Flat Sandals for Women

For everyday wear, you can’t go wrong with a pair of flat sandals. From subtle strappy styles that go with everything to statement pairs in animal print and pastel hues to liven up your summer outfits, we have comfortable flat sandals for summer to suit every style and taste.

Our Reyna Twist sandals are simple yet stylish and are crafted with an Ultimate Comfort footbed and flexi sole to make walking a breeze. They look great with jeans and are available in dusty rose, metallic and black.

For extra foot and arch support, our Wave2.0 Sail sandals feature multiple leather straps and a durable rocker sole to aid natural walking movement.

If you’re relaxing in the garden or lounging by the pool, our range of women's sliders are ideal. Take a look at our Elayne Ease sliders, which feature a chunky leather upper and lightweight EVA sole made from 30% sustainable sugarcane sole for style and eco-conscious comfort in every step.

Best Walking Sandals for Women

There’s nothing like getting out and about on a warm summer’s day, whether that’s rambling through fields or setting off on an urban trek. Whatever the terrain, it’s essential to wear the right shoe for proper support and to allow your feet to breathe.

Our Tri Walk sandals are one of the best sandals for walking as they have been designed to ensure comfort and flexibility, with three rip-tape fastenings for a secure and adjustable fit.

For less rigorous walks, our Orinoco Strap sandal is stylish and supportive, and is available in a choice of six colours, including pastel pink and leopard print.

Best Wedge Sandals

Nothing says “summer” quite like a wedge sandal. One of the comfiest heels, they’re supportive, and their cut-out design allows your feet to breathe. Our collection of wedge sandals features styles in a range of materials, designs and colours, so you can choose the ideal summer wedge sandal for you.

Our Maritsa Lara slingback wedges are a dressy and comfortable option for day or night. They’re available in several shades, but opt for fuchsia to add a bold pop of colour to any summer outfit.

If you’re looking for a classic and transitional pair, our Lafley Leah wedges are timeless and could be just what you’re looking for. Available in dusty rose or a shimmery black finish, these smart sandals will add a touch of sophistication to your 2021 summer sandal collection.

For an easy wedge to wear during the day, the Sense Strap wedge is a failsafe option for a tiny bit of added height but with plenty of cushioning.

Best Summer Sandals with heels

If you’re looking for summer sandals with heels, wedges are a great option, but they’re not the only choice. Our collection of heeled sandals covers everything from statement stilettos to modern block heels.

For that wow factor in the evening, the elegant Amali Jewel is sure to turn heads, with a slim ankle strap and a dainty buckle fastening. For something with a little more support, a chunkier heel such as our Maritsa70 Sun sandal is a great option. This cushioned pair is adorned with studs and a sleek buckle fastening, which will add edge to any outfit.

Best sandals with arch support

If you need a little extra arch support, look for contoured soles that mould to your feet. All of our summer sandals feature one of our cushion technologies. Look for sandals featuring our Cushion Plus or Cushion Soft technology for extra shock absorption, and prioritise chunky soles and adjustable straps to ensure extra comfort for your arches.
