For this summer, flat sandals will once again play the leading role in your summer wardrobe. No more 'barely there' minimalistic flat sandals like we saw last year. Instead, this season, the bigger, the bolder, the better. Flat sandals are the perfect accessory to play with contrasts and enhance your silhouette. This summer's most iconic sandal, the dad sandal, presents a blast from the past with the sought after Prada Nomad shoe. Completely new this season is a rope sole, a stylish twist on the iconic espadrille. We also see variants with strappy straps, in gold, or snakeskin, or couture slides with logos. To see what other flat sandal styles are going viral, below are the flat sandals we are betting on this season.


The Cord & Lambskin sandal is from Chanel's Spring Summer 2020 collection and is just what you need to achieve the perfectly undone French girl look. Chanel's street-style flat sandal matches this concept perfectly with its cord feature that sports an effortlessly chic aesthetic.

Prada's popular Nomad Platform Sandals are the dad sandals you need immediately before they sell out. These sport slide sandals will make you nostalgic for the 80's, or most likely the time when you've probably seen your dad pictured in them.
