Primark unveils £12 version of this summer’s coolest sandals

Pedicures at the ready people – sandal season is officially here, and we are so ready to ditch the trainers and give our easy, breezy sandals a good run around.

Our number one factor when choosing good sandals may be comfort, but it’s nice to know we’re wearing a pair that are in fashion too. While slides and flatforms are still going strong, the coolest style of the season is definitely fisherman sandals, which – despite the name – are reaching new sartorial heights by cradling the feet of just about everyone who’s anyone.

It’s very pleasing to see fashion editors choose a sandal style that is comfy and practical, as well as chic, but when it comes to fisherman sandals they are likely to be wearing an £860 pair from The Row – the most coveted take on the trend for 2022.

Happily, we’ve spotted an equally eye-catching and far less pricey pair from Primark, which at a mere £12, will give you £848 change on the cost of The Row’s version.

Budget retailer Primark shared a snap of the fisherman sandals on Instagram, where shoppers were clearly taken with them (the post racked up nearly 10,000 likes and lots of positive comments).

Available in-store in either black or beige, Primark’s sandals feature a chunky sole, gold buckle and that distinctive criss-cross strapping to encase the toe, allowing you to hit the beach or pound the pavement in these beauties.

We’ll be teaming ours with dark denim shorts and a crisp button-down shirt for hitting the city this summer. It’s what the fishermen would’ve wanted.
