How to choose the right sandals

When looking for the perfect sandals, it's crucial that you put some thought into their use. A pair of sandals suitable for hiking and outdoor activities may not be the best choice for formal occasions. On the other hand, you can find practical sandals that are pretty to look at so be aware of your needs before making your choice.

But there is more than just the design, because you also have to take into account the sandal's sole and whether it's an open or closed sandal. We would like to give you a hand making the right choice, so we have looked at the different types of sandals.

Open sandals
If your new sandals are to be used for hiking and outdoor activities, then it's probably an open sandal that will be the best choice for you. They are simple in their designs and usually don’t weigh very much, making them extremely suitable for life outdoors. An open sandal is easy to put on and take off, and the open design ensures that you never sweat your feet and experiences uncomfortable warmth.

But air is not the only thing that flows directly through your open sandals, they are also the perfect choice if you go near bodies of water. Should you be unfortunate enough to get your feet wet, the water will run right out of the sandal just like that. It may also be that you enjoy walking at the water’s edge or walking through streams and rivers. With an open sandal there is no hassle making it dry again, as it will happen all by itself in no time.

Open sandals are a really good choice for walking but may be more functional than actually pretty.

Closed sandals
Where an open sandal is light and airy, a closed sandal is somewhat heavier and more robust. This means that they can stand a somewhat rougher treatment and are suitable for long walks over uneven terrain. Because they have a closed tip and thicker soles, you can easily speed up and put the miles behind you without fear of stubbing your toes or getting sore feet.

A characteristic of closed sandals is their robust design and hardy materials, which makes them extremely flexible and very suitable for the tough camping and hiking life. The design, however, means that a closed sandal is a lot heavier and that can of course be a disadvantage, but that's the price you pay for a sturdy sandal. You should also be aware that one's feet can get a little warmer than in open sandals.

Are you tired of getting stones and dirt in your sandals, then you should consider buying closed sandals.

Find your new sandals online
It may seem like the obvious solution to go to the nearest shoe store to buy sandals, but you can really save a lot of money if you choose to buy them online. Not only can you save a lot of money, but you can also order your new sandals at home from your sofa. It doesn’t get any easier than that.
