10 Handmade Sandals for Summer

I love this artist’s statement: “My mission is to make shoes that complete a stylish outfit, while allowing the wearer to walk without pain. I believe that nothing speaks more clearly than excellent materials executed with skill and simplicity. I believe an investment in something beautiful that lasts will always pay off.” To keep her environmental impact low, the wood is FSC certified sustainable cherry. She also uses non-toxic wood finish, and vegetable tanned leather. (Moxie Shoes, $190)

Moxie was definitely my favorite shoemaker discovery, and I also fell for these t-strap peep toe wedges. They’re distinctive, yet something that you can wear with anything. My dream shoe! (Moxie Shoes, $190)

Are you a flip flop gal? These comfy sandals are available in Natural Brown, White, Black, Red, Green, Blue, Dark Brown and Gold and are made from thick cow leather making them very strong. Soles are rubber. (Nikola Sandals, $39.50)

Looking for something more unique than everyday staple? I love these European made sandals featuring sophisticated craftsmanship. (Calpas, $55)

High quality original Greek leather sandals in black with extra long braided straps, handcrafted from satin jersey fabric in yellow. The shop features a ton of variation in color and material for sandals just like these. (Greek Chic Handmades, $75)

This shop affordably re-purposes plain Jane sandals into something unique. I love these Wet Seal thong sandals that she upgraded with owl charms! US size 7. (Hint of Sunshine, $25)
