After seasons of double platforms, fashion is finally playing fair this spring. One of the season’s hottest new footwear trends is the sporty sandal. Thick or thin, this style’s rubber sole–its defining feature–functions as both a design and comfort element. It’s also a style that works for any aesthetic. For those of us who gravitate toward barely-there, delicate sandal straps, it’s easy to adopt the look while maintaining a sleek feel with the Cappadocia and Gilda sandals below. If you prefer a more substantial, even avant-garde look, both the Kelsi Dagger and Tsubo style will be your go-to. Whatever you choose, pair them with spring’s sporty clothing styles or juxtapose them against more feminine looks. Either way, you’ll want to add sporty sandals to your spring shopping list.
