Birkenstock – A true classic
Sandals from Birkenstock are almost the true image of sandals. A brown, oiled leather model gives you sandals that are both perfect at the office as well as being worn with a pair of casual jeans, chinos or shorts. Roll up the trouser hem and enjoy wearing them on walks in the shade as well as at an outdoor bar. Your feet will thank you.
TeVa – Adventure and quality
TeVa are almost legendary in the context of sandals. Always right, practical and stylish in both the outdoors and long days walking around cities. The construction with straps means that they fit very well on the foot, and the soles are created for hiking trails and wading over glacial run off streams, as well as burning desert sand or the city's concrete streets.
The Resort Co.
Your friend for the beach provides an image of a summer feeling when paired with a pair of breathable linen trousers and a white shirt, complemented by a deep tan, good sunglasses and a watch worth the name on the wrist. The Resort Company will be your go-to choice when it comes to flip-flops.
Yuketen – Style and craftsmanship
If we want to discuss how to dress formally with sandals, then a pair of sandals from Japan’s Yuketen is a step in the right direction. Handmade shoes with a suede upper and a crepe sole adorned with a jute fabric, the sandals become the ultimate fusion of premium production and classic sandal aesthetic. All pieced together to create the ultimate sandal using Japan’s knowledge of design, comfort and material choices.
BOSS – Colour, luxury and functionality
Summer and relaxed days are often synonyms for colour and relaxation. Deep blue sandals made from durable rubber, crafted with a surface texture reminiscent of diving watches. The sandals are an aesthetic fusion that stands out on the beach and can withstand both water and rain. At the same time, they can give a nice splash of colour to a light linen suit and a t-shirt on a cool afternoon under the parasol.
