It’s Only April—but These Are Already the Sandals of 2020

April 26, 2020 at 06:05AM

Every summer, there’s a standout sandal style that seems to be just about everywhere. Two years ago, it was The Row’s barely-there strappy sandals, and last year Bottega Veneta’s square-toe mules were ubiquitous amongst the fashion set. And while spring/summer 2020 has only just begun, already this year we’re seeing one key footwear style start to emerge as the frontrunner for shoe of the season.

Yes, it may only be April and we might be spending much less time in shoes, but platform flip flops have already started showing up all over our social media feeds, solidifying themselves as the style of summer. From The Row’s luxury leather iteration, which has been worn by Monikh, Lucy Williams and Brittany Bathgate, to Arket’s padded high-street versions, which have been championed by just as many influencers (and have already sold out), it’s clear the flip flop trend is set to be big over the next few months. 

While The Row can once again be credited for starting the movement, shoes of this style have started to pop up across contemporary and high-street brands. Neous have created their own flip flops, featuring a unique wooden platform detail, while Mango have also jumped on the trend offering a heeled version of the shoe. 

If you’re still in need of a little convincing, keep scrolling to see how influencers are styling the shoe, and shop the trend below.
