New Sandal Trends for Summer 2022
Date Updated: 21/11/2022
The clothes we wear reflect what’s happening in the world so it’s no surprise that after a challenging couple of years the fashion focus for 2022 is comfort and practicality. For the first time in ages, designers from around the world have showcased their work in London, New York and Paris. Fashion month was full of classic staples with a twist and combining style with durability is what Salt-Water does best.
Scroll on to discover the trends to look out for in summer sandals for 2022 – there are comfy, sunny days ahead!
Take your cue from the red carpet and embrace metallics ahead of next Spring. It’s a great way to inject your everyday look with a splash of light that will carry you effortlessly from day to night. We have four metallic finishes - Gold, Rose Gold, Silver and Pewter across seven different styles so lots to choose from! Plus our mash-up range uses a mixture of metallics in one sandal to great effect. The Russian Venchanie is a triple whammy combination of straps in silver, gold and rose gold.
Slide sandals lean into a more balanced aesthetic which lies between creativity and comfort and has come about after the increased amount of time we’ve been spending at home. Fashion habits have changed, and you might be pleased to know that house shoes are trending. The perfect working from home shoe, our waterproof slide sandals come in two different styles. The Retro Slide, a laidback, 70’s style and the Classic Slide with a more elegant feel. They are super easy to slip in and out of whether you’re about to jump in the pool or pop out for coffee.
Jenny Clarke, head of the fashion forecasting company WGSN, says that future season’s shades are ‘driven by a desire to be uplifted and energized whilst remaining grounded and balanced’ and there certainly was a lot of colour rolling down the runways. Spring is all about bright, bold tones and turning your feet into a playful colour story. Salt-Water sandals come in a rainbow of different shades including yellow, red, blue and pink.
Signalling the popularity of modern, practical footwear options, the latest sandal silhouette, the Fisherman, is a closed toe summer sandal with substantial straps that protect the foot. Our version, the Salt-Water Shark, features a statement lattice upper and comes in eight different colours including rose gold so you have the option of combining two trends in one shoe!
It’s worth noting that the entire collection, including the metallic finish, are waterproof sandals that come with rust proof buckles. So, whilst they are perfect for padding around town or working from home, Salt-Water sandals are also the best summer sandals for women.
