Even if you're somebody looking to buy designer sandals as a way to flex your socioeconomic standing, you'll likely find that some of the items on this list are of such a high quality that their longevity may actually justify their price. A pair that lasts you ten years and costs $200 would is a more frugal purchase than a $40 pair that lasts you two years. For that reason, we've included the Frye Cape Strap at #2 and the Mephisto Rafael Fisherman's at #4. They aren't as flashy as some of the others we've chosen, but they're made of high-quality materials and are very well-constructed.
If you're looking for a pair that'll make a statement, then the Fiorangelo 6011 (#3) or the Fiorangelo 6322 (#7) might strike your fancy. While they're not the most practical, they clearly tout the artistic imagination expected of a high-fashion designer.
Those looking to balance style and function can't go wrong with our top pick, the Salvatore Ferragamo Nostro. This one and the DaVinci 1432 Push-In (#5) offer understated elegance that'll catch the eye of those who know quality when they see it.
If you decide, after all, that designer sandals aren't for you, we have a list that includes more affordable sandals here.
