10 Handmade Sandals for Summer

If you have to wear shoes (and who actually likes doing that), they might as well be comfortable. Sandals are great because they’re often comfy and they have the added benefit of allowing your feet to breathe a bit. After months of winter and feet locked up in boots and kicks, it’s nice to change it up for the warmer months! Pedicure excuse, anyone?

In my quest to always buy handmade and vintage, I recently went looking for some awesome sandal options online and I was not disappointed. Below are ten of my favorite finds and I hope you’ll let me know your own in the comments below!

This awesome company makes 100 percent genuine leather sandals in Greece, where each pair is uniquely crafted. My favorites are these fresh red leather cherry slip ons, cut by hand. Rather have another fruit or animal, even? They can hook you up. (Anoushe, $73)

These gorgeous crocheted suede shoes are a one of a kind pair! Size US 8. The uppers are beige suede which has been fully lined in leather and a gorgeous orange crochet flower has been stitched in the middle. The thread is durable yet soft. The platform is made from wood, which has been treated with a polyeurathane varnish for strength and protection. There is a leather insole in tan which has a padded heel. There is hidden elastic at the back of the ankle strap which allows you to get them on and off easily. (Karen Kell, $250)

These vintage-inspired wedges feature braided leather accents, a charming peep toe, and an adjustable ankle strap with brass buckle closure and hidden elastic. They are made of high quality soft leather. (ELF ELF, $140)

These comfy and classic black leather sandals feature a thick leather strap on the front of your foot that adds extra comfort and straps that connect around the ankle adding full-power support & stability. Offered in several other colors. (Sandali, $55)
