Although this a trend I was finding quite difficult to like, I know that when it comes to fashion, one should never say never, and I’m pretty sure that once I put one of these super comfy hiking sandals on, I will ask myself what took me so long!

What used to be ugly-sandals - and when I say ugly, I mean really ugly - the comfortable sandals designed for trekking, that have ankle support, a thick sole and velcro closures, have become the latest shoe-trend among fashionistas.

By now, we have already become accustomed to ugly shoes, ugly sneakers, Birkenstocks, Monk sandals, and even sandals worn with socks, so the ugly sandal trend does not surprise us much. Actually, I must admit I’m already starting to like this trend after seeing the hiking sandals in so many S/S 19 collections and on Instagram!

Chanel, Prada, Dries Van Noten, Gucci, Chloé and Acne, to name a few, have turned the chunky hiking sandals into the most fashionable shoes this season. This summer shoe staple is perfect for the modern woman on-the-go, who likes practical and comfortable trends like kickers and hiking boots, and wants to give an edge to her breezy little dresses and shorts, which are, by the way, another super trend for this season.

So, if you were going to buy only one pair of shoes for spring and summer, make sure it’s hiking sandals! And you can invest in this trend because we’re sure it will last longer than just one season, trust us on this.
