Boots are to winter and sandals are to summer. As we transition to the warmth of the new season, we’re making a list of incontestable essentials to buy in the coming weeks, with this pair from Ancient Greek Sandals—a label born out of Christina Martini and Nikolas Minoglou’s love for Ancient Greek mythology—topping the footwear list.
There is a playfulness to the summer season that allows the entry of quirky footwear that would have otherwise been just another fashion faux pas. Such is the reason why Fashion Glamour is letting these Ikaria metallic sandals into our exclusive list of wardrobe wants, a pair soaring with summer chicness. Arriving in gold leather, these strappy flat sandals hit the right symmetry between unobtrusive detailing and noteworthy design. Though the perforated wing appears to be a futile attempt at friskiness, there’s an old-world decadence to it that is set off by the gold finish. True to its Greek inspiration, these shoes’ are bursting with character and authenticity that make for one grand summer sandal.
Although the season is afoot with summer footwear from famed shoemakers, we’re making a slight exception to the norm by bannering our fixation for these shoes, which retail for $245 at Net-a-Porter.
