Sandals are that footwear that expose a good part of foot especially the toes and this is true for both sexes and kid's sandals. Actually, sandals have a simple sole and straps to hold feet to sole. But if you look for variety within this setup, you have soles made in leather, rubber and any material having durability; and straps in their simplicity pass over the feet starting from between the big toe and the second one.
The entry of big brands like Nike Sandals, Keen Sandals and Merrell Sandals has brought in some style to the quintessential sandals looking at the ever changing fashion. You can have them with or without heels or high heels, wide straps/thongs passing over the arch of the foot again with or without the heel straps. Just there is no limitation but for their simplicity, when it comes to style.
Where do you wear sandals to? You can choose to wear sandals during summers or warm springs, for their attractiveness in parties and because they keep feet cool and dry, wearing them avoid fungal infection and when you already got infected. Some people choose it for their economy. The simplest flip-flop types are worn by the poolside or bathrooms. Did you know American slang for men's sandals with twin parallel Velcro straps are called as mandals?
Of all, women's sandals have more style to offer alongside kid's sandals. You have multicolored woven leather straps, soft cushioned, fast drying insoles and straps which reveal toes stylishly and so on. The no-heel cousins are used more for comfort than for fashion. The embossed footbed in leather or polyurethane; soles made in light weight rubber and polyurethane etc for good grip offer non-slip comfort.
Laced sandals for regular wear have contoured footbed, higher sidewalls, shock absorbing soles, multi-terrain treads and quick lacing through chrome plated rings.
