There are a wide variety of shoe styles trending this summer, including flatforms, peep-toe kitten heels and even knee high boots. But there is one shoe that reigns supreme above all others: the Birkenstock-inspired double-buckle sandal. These easy flats are the way to go if you want something that’s both comfortable and trendy, and best of all, they come in so many different colors, fabrics and price points, you’re bound to come across your dream pair somewhere (perhaps even in this article).
So, what’s the best way to style your beloved buckled sandals? Pair sportier styles like Freedom Moses with equally sporty separates like bike shorts or an exercise dress. Sleeker silhouettes, like this minimalist Jane and the Shoe pair, work better with dressier options, like a silk slip dress or wide-leg trousers. And of course, we couldn’t talk about buckled sandals without calling out the inspiration behind the whole trend, Arizona Birkenstocks. These classic, supportive slip-ons come in a wide variety of styles and colors, but our favorite will always be the original neutral-hued oiled leather. We suggest wearing them with everything from floaty midi dresses to raw-hem jeans to comfy joggers.
