Whether you are shopping for a warm-weather getaway or staying in the city this summer, take advantage of Rome’s top shopping scene and invest in a new pair of designer sandals. Upgrade your sartorial choices with one of these chic offerings from some of the biggest brands of the moment. Updating the classic flip-flop-style sandal with a platform heel, Salvatore Ferragamo made a strong case for the toe-thong sandal, one of the more unusual styles this season. The Chanel SS19 show brought white sands and a lapping sea to the Grand Palais for its beach-inspired collection. While models walked the show barefoot, they carried some of this season’s most covetable sandals, including a multicoloured braided version. Those who prefer more traditional options should look to Italian brands such as Tod’s and Brunello Cucinelli, which have used their incredible leather craftsmanship to create some timeless leather sandals. Whatever style you are looking for, we present some of the standout options for spring/summer 2019.
