You will find few styles of footwear as versatile as the sandal. Sandals can be comfortably worn while walking down the beach as well as at a formal gala or while hiking along a mountain trail. While you would not likely use the same sandal for every event, if you love the openness that sandals offer, chances are you have worn a pair of sandals in each of these situations.
As a woman, there is little sexier than a pair of women’s sandals complimenting a long flowing summer dress, and the is little as easy to throw on as a pair of womens thong sandals in the morning, or to throw on for a quick run out to the store or to hang out around the backyard swimming pool.
If you have never been shopping for sandals online, be prepared to be overwhelmed by the vast diversity of styles and brands available. Sandals is a rather loose category of womens footwear. Generally, they are defined as footwear with a sole that is held to the foot by straps passing over the instep and sometimes around the ankle. Sandals are commonly understood to be footwear that leaves most of the upper part of the foot and toes exposed. This very general definition makes it difficult to shop exclusively for sandals because the same criteria can be met by many different styles. For example, from this definition, most formal high heels would be considered sandals. Consequently often when you are looking for sandals they will be found grouped with the heels and vice versa.
Because of the grayed lines between sandals and other styles of footwear, when looking for sandals, it is best to search based on the use of your sandals rather than using general terms. For example, when searching for sandals to be used while hiking, you would ideally search for “Womens Outdoor sandals” which should bring up Women’s Keen Sandals or similar brands while if you are looking for a more formal sandal with a heel, you would search in Women’s Heels or search for “Womens Dress Sandals.” Other The key is to be specific about the function of your sandal when doing a search.
Our experience selling sandals online for many years is that there are 7 main keyword with which to categorize sandals, including: athletic, casual, dress, open-toe, closed-toe, thong, and wedge.

A pair of sandals can be found in just about every closet in America. They are so versatile, so convenient, and often so inexpensive that they are a staple of any wardrobe collection. While shopping for sandals in your local store can be simple and fun, shopping online can be daunting given the vast diversity of brands, styles, and options. The key to finding the sandals you are looking for is to use search terms for what you will use the sandals for or if you have a particular brand in mind, start by searching that particular brand.
