Chunky Sandals

This ‘90s-inspired shoe trend is the definition of effortless chic

Check out the top picks from our Summer 2021 collection and be inspired by your favourite style stars.

Fashion’s fixation with the ‘90s continues into the summer. This season, chunky sandals are the hottest retro trend to sport. Cool, chic and comfortable, they are the perfect footwear to put on during the warmer months and are highly coveted by fashion insiders from all over the world. Read on to find out how our favourite style stars — Nara Kim, Ng Wing Sze and more — are styling the latest chunky sandals from our Summer 2021 collection.

Nara Kim @naras._

Follow in Nara Kim’s stylish footsteps and add a pop of colour to your wardrobe with our chunky sports sandals. They are Nara’s personal favourite because she loves their gorgeous lilac finish. “These days, I am into styling with pastel colours,” the South Korean social media star shares. She pairs them with cut-off denim shorts to achieve a fresh and classic summer look.

Ng Wing Sze @nwsze

Hong Kong actress Ng Wing Sze colour-coordinated her outfit with our chunky sports sandals because she “always loves a monochromatic look” for being bold and energetic. Her ensemble, which consists of a plaid shirt and loose-fitting pants, reflects her casual and laid-back personal style. Recreate her fun, colourful and eye-catching look to stand out wherever you go.

CHERI @cheristyle_

If chunky sandals are not your style, low-top sneakers are a great alternative. As seen on CHERI, our version features a knitted texture that is lightweight and breathable. During the summer, the South Korean fashion stylist “likes to style them with dresses for a sporty vibe”. She chooses a cut-out midi dress in bright green to make a striking fashion statement.

Mikako @mikako_faky

Mikako is also a fan of our chunky sports sandals. The Japanese musical artist chooses them in timeless white to match her classic personal style – she enjoys fashion intuitively “without being overly obsessed with trends”. She pairs them with printed flare pants, which create visual interest and the illusion of longer legs, and an oversized pullover for a cosy and stylish stay-home look.

Anni Bolika @llifeisapigsty

Our colourful ruched sandals, which feature clashing floral prints, are a perfect reflection of Anni Bolika’s eclectic style. “My style is a combination of all my interests. It’s boring to only pick one aesthetic,” the London-based fashion blogger explains. To create her signature cool, vintage look, she styles the sandals with a pair of white socks and baggy jeans.
