For stylish summer shoes with a distinctive look, Born sandals are a great choice. Though classic single-and double-band slide sandals are an option, many Born sandals feature unusual designs and multiple straps that won’t rub or cause blisters. Opanka hand-sewn construction results in sturdy straps that won’t come apart, though they may loosen over time. With leather straps in a variety of colors, it’s easy to find a Born sandal that fits your style for casual-yet-eye-catching comfort. Durable outsoles mean you can wear these sandals all summer long. Those who prefer a lot of cushion may find Born sandals a bit thin.
