There is no denying it...we are in the dog days of summer! When it's hot, you need shoes that will keep you cool and comfortable. No matter what your taste or foot issues, Plum Bottom is well-stocked with sandals of every variety.
Flip flops are a staple for around the house and running errands, but very few flip flops offer you enough support for all-day comfort. Since these are the shoes that you are living in all summer long, make sure you invest in a pair that will keep your feet happy!
OluKai flip flops are doctor approved and were originally designed in Hawaii’ for beach lifeguards, so you know they will be perfect to wear on your summer adventures—even those in your own backyard. Plum Bottom carries a variety of OluKai flip flop styles in a range of fun colors that offer great arch support.
Naot has updated their flip flop game with the new Penelope style. It’s slightly more streamlined than previous incarnations, and great for a slightly narrower foot. Though flatter than some NAOT sandals, the Penelope offers a supportive cork footbed.
For those who need something with a wider footbed, NAOT’s popular Tahoe style adds some simmer and shine to an otherwise classic sandal, made in Israel.
Pinaz’ toe thong elastic strap slides can be paired with a sundress, shorts or even your bathing suit! Made in Spain on a softly padded leather footbed, it’s easy to picture yourself wearing these sandals every day.
The sporty white flat platform (or flatform) bottom on these Italian-made Nero Giardini give you a little boost in height, while still being comfortable and oh-so cool.
If you enjoy the sporty look, but want something a little more tame, Eric Michael has a wear-with-everything flatform we love. These made-in-Spain beauties have comfort padding and elastic straps that keep your foot in place.
If you’re style runs towards the more bohemian, slide into the Tavi from Antelope. It’s got a laid-back vibe and is comfortable to wear thanks to the soft woven leather which works for many different feet.
Looking for something romantic, colorful, cute and ON SALE! These candy colored Vaneli slides are 50% off their regular price and are the perfect way to update an outfit while staying cool this summer.
When comfort is key, look for Remonte and Ara sandals. These are the perfect choice for someone with wider feet or bunions, and still look great.
