- PINK STUD SANDALS (R799, ALDO)
“The perfect summer statement shoe doesn't always need to be heels, these bright eye-catching sandals will demand more than enough attention,” says Abby Buchanan of One Stiletto at a Time. “Rock a sexy little white dress for cocktails or take them to the pool party and pair with short denim cutoffs.”

“They are comfy, but yet they offer a retro edgy vibe,” says Isabel Ngulube of MzansiFro of her pick. “Wear them with a playsuit for a fun brunch date with your squad.”
- SPARKLING GOLD SANDALS (R999, ACCESSORIZE)
Megan Richards of The Authentic Girl says she loves a pair of sandals that can be paired with almost anything. These sparkly flats from Accessorize caught her eye. “The colour goes well with my skin tone, and they’re great for summer because your toes are having a party!”
- ESPADRILLES (R699, FOREVER NEW)
“I always opt for something cute and comfortable,” says Lerato Bambo of Life from a bag. “Espadrilles are definitely something I like as you can mix and match and wear them during the day or at night.”
- BURNT ORANGE MIDI HEELS (R549, COTTON ON)
“I am really enjoying ghillie tie sandals this season,” says Anja van der Spuy of Glitz and Grammar . She continues, “They are just the right balance between formal and fashionable, which makes them ideal for work. Over weekends they go well with shorts and pretty sundresses!”
