This season’s lace up sandals are reinventing traditional gladiators and making them more wearable and packable, too – we are loving these new looks! From comfort to heels to flats, check out our favorite styles!


Lace Up Sandals and Gladiators




Dolce Vita Jasmyn Gladiator Sandal




Flats are footwear staples; we love them because of their easy-going style and the ability to dress up an outfit without feeling over-the-top. This season, there seems to be an endless array of lace up sandals to choose from!

These will act as your third “dressy” travel shoe but shouldn’t be the main pair you pack for walking and day-long sightseeing.

Breezy and bohemian, pair with a loose chiffon dress or cotton summer shorts on your next Mediterranean jaunt!

Gentle Souls Break My Heart 3 Gladiator Sandal




When your feet start to complain, it’s time to switch to comfort shoes. However, this doesn’t mean you have to be out of style. New comfort lace up sandals have taken over fashion, making hours of walking less painful while staying chic.

This half-looped, caged sandal in sassy black is an easy winner. Your feet will be cushioned in deerskin lining and a flaxseed, midsole padding and while maintaining a feminine design, not usual for comfort shoes. We call it style without the sting.


Here are more comfortable walking sandals that are stylish, too!




Rockport Hattie Laceup Heeled Sandal




For those of you still wearing heels, take your game up a notch: jump on the lace up plus block heel bandwagon. With just the right touch of haute couture flavor on a more practical heel, these are an ultra stylish item to bring on our travels. Block heels also make a good replacement for wedges on some trips.

From playing up jeans to complementing frocks, a lace up heel is a fantastic option for dressy escapades. Pair with an LBD as you get dinner out in Paris or wear for a night out in London.


If your travels call for some comfy heels, here are 18 practical styles to choose from!




Sam Edelman Gemma Sandal




Who says prints and lace up sandals don’t go well together? When it comes to fashionable footwear, nothing is too much! I absolutely adore printed shoes, especially because my wardrobe consists mainly of solids.

Featuring a man-made sole and a laced-up closure, this sandal’s leather upper in snakeskin is too gorgeous to pass up. The timeless serpentine look appeals to every generation in every season. Make a statement: pair this with your day dress for an extra-sophisticated look. This is my favorite neutral print!
