The Look: Gone Fishin’

Fisherman sandals might be the summer footwear choice among grandfathers the world over, but the latest iterations of the closed-toe sandal is getting a Juniors’ market makeover.

The addition of chunky block heels, like the Vogue pair above, and lug soles——a nod to 90s grunge fashion——picks up where last fall’s obsession for combat boots left off. Metallics, oversized flakes of glitter and floral prints tap into a number of other trendy looks for the season.

Other designers take a more tailored approach by slimming down the shoes and focusing on seafaring patent hues. Hybrids are created with silhouettes that are more closed-up or more open than traditional fisherman sandals.
