Summer is here! why Not start with a new pair of sandals designed by you! Sandals are an open type of outdoor footwear, consisting of a sole held to the wearer’s foot by straps passing over the instep and, sometimes, around the ankle. Sandals can also have a heel. While the distinction between sandals and other types of footwear can sometimes be blurry, the common understanding is that a sandal leaves most of the upper part of the foot exposed, particularly the toes.
