In a time of statement shoes embellished with all sorts of things, platforms and sculptural heels, why not run the opposite direction and draw everyone’s attention by wearing plain flat Monk Sandals?
You know, those almost spartan sandals, made in plain tan or black leather with a modest and straightforward design that has an artisanal feel, the kind of shoes Franciscan monks wear? By the way, if you have always wondered why monks wear sandals, here's the reason why.
These iconic sandals that Princess Grace of Monaco and Audrey Hepburn would wear in the 60s are just the perfect shoes for an easy-going stroll in Capri or the South of France.

Kate Moss, Alexa Chung, Naomi Watts are some of the stylish women who love a flat sandal to step into summer. They are effortlessly chic and look great with kaftans, with short dresses and linen trousers.
