When I first saw the Esparto sandals from the 6th or 5th millennium BC found in Spain, the first idea which came to my mind was that they were not anything but just things to walk in. Today people still wear sandals but with a difference that it has become the most intimate object. In ancient times, sandals were made of esparto grass, which is a fiber produced from two species of perennial grasses. I am sure you will agree that they probably were quite uncomfortable.


Today they are made of different materials: Sandals may have a sole made from rubber, leather, wood, tatami or rope… there are also different types of sandals: Lace-up Sandals, Platform Sandals, Thong Sandals, Huaraches and etc. Sandals can say a lot about your sexual desires, aesthetic sense, personality… I am an absolute sandal-lover. Shoe industry or even single designers provide a wide range of style that you can choose depending on your needs and desires. They are easy to wear, comfy and not only “nice to have” but absolute “must-have” in summer because sandals are summer. I am glad to share my sandal shape knowledge with you!

Platform Sandals

Platform Sandals

They keep your feet comfy yet stylish. If you like to add more height to your actual height by elongating the leg then they are good footwear decisions for you. If you know how to wear platform sandals, you will look just gorgeous! It’s good to mention that platform sandals are not as precarious as spike heels, but it’s not bad to be cautious: don’t run or jump while wearing them. For platform sandals, check Nordstrom.

Thong Sandals

NIke Thong SandalAlso known as flip-flops, are far more casual in appearance, consist of a thin strap that passes between the first and second toes. They are ideal for Beach Wear, Everyday Casual-Wear. Never wear them in the office, even if there are not any attire restrictions by your employer. I love to wear them during my daily routine. Check this athletic, Nike thong sandal on FinishLine.com.



They are a type of Mexican sandal made from woven leather. Lightweight enough to keep the grip of feet healthy and natural, easy to slip on and off in airports. Huaraches are better for dry environments than wet ones and I find them just perfect for a city walk, they keep feet cool and dry, sweat evaporates. Get them from Zappos.

Summer is here… It’s time for our piggies to get some vitamin D. Have you got your favorite pair of sandals?
