But what makes sandals so popular, especially during the warmer months?

Well, it’s pretty simple – sandals are the perfect footwear for hot weather! They offer comfort and versatility, making them an excellent match for formal and casual outfits and everything in between. With sandals, you can look stylish and feel at ease no matter the occasion.

Despite that, here’s an interesting twist to the sandal’s story.
