The Iconic 90s-Inspired Sandals Make Their Way Back Into Style Again This Year

Sandals are such a common item that every household must have at least a pair in their shoe cabinet. They’re easy to wear, convenient to carry around, not that expensive, and does enough to protect your feet from the dangers that lie on the ground. Sandals are more popular among areas with hotter climate due to its open design that allows your foot to “breathe”. This allows your foot to keep cool and dry at all times while also lowering the risks of infections like Athlete’s Foot. In the past, people looked at sandals for its function rather than design. This is why we often see this type of footwear as out-of-date or unfashionable.

Today, things have definitely changed. The popularity of sandals has spread into places with the much colder weather as well (socks are worn with sandals as a fashion combination in these places). Especially in the past 2-3 years, we can often see models sporting old-school sandals on global runways along with all kinds of clothing styles including street, casual, minimal, or even effortless. Don’t believe us? Have a look at the fashion shows of brands like Prada, Chanel, Versace, Maison Kitsuné, Kolor, Vetements, Marc Jacobs and Rick Owens this past couple of years.

Another reason behind the resurgence of this type of sandals is with the help of influencers. Brands nowadays often place their focus on influential people to help communicate with the target market. Influencers have become an effective way of drawing attention to new products and sparking a trend with the mass audience. Whenever we see our favorite celebrities, bloggers, YouTubers, or fashion icons using a certain product, it more or less has a positive impact on our purchasing decision.
