With the sun finally shining (at least some of the time) and the temperatures steadily rising, we’re officially declaring it sandal weather. If you’ve been thinking about booking in for a pedi, now is the time, as we seriously can’t get enough of M&S sandals.

The high street hero has been absolutely killing it recently, with the Sienna Miller collection and not to mention the M&S summer dresses that keep flying off the shelves. Safe to say, it is one of our fave spots on the high street for scoring stylish yet budget-friendly buys to perk up our wardrobe.

As much as we love a summer trainer with our dresses, sometimes you just can’t beat a sandal. Whether it’s a flat slip-on style, a chunky fisherman design or a strappy heeled number, sandals just scream summer. Plus, they keep your feet a lot cooler.


If you’re looking to up your sandal game this season, trust us when we say that M&S is the place to do it. With prices starting from just £15, you can step out in style without breaking the bank. You can even get the designer look for a whole lot less thanks to M&S’ take on the much-loved fisherman sandal. With designer versions by The Row and JW Anderson setting you back £1,060 and £635 (yikes) bag yourself M&S’ dupe for only £49.50. Available in black and tan, it’s the perfect sandal to pair with all your summer looks.

If fisherman sandals aren’t your vibe, how about a Birkenstock dupe for less than £30? M&S has no shortage of chic sandals to complete your warm weather outfits. We’ve rounded up the best M&S sandals to shop right now – run don’t walk, because they are selling out fast.

SHOP: The best M&S sandals

Mule sandals are still very much en vogue this summer and the good news is you can shop the trend without splashing too much cash. For just under £30, M&S has created a pair of elegant mules that will finish off all your outfits in true style. In wide fit and with a modest 5cm mid-height heel, they will elevate your look without being uncomfortable.

The designer dupe that everyone is going wild for. Potentially a bit of a marmite shoe, but if you're wanting to tick off one of the season's hottest footwear trends this is the style for you. Bridging comfort and style, the wide fit sandals feature a flat sole, buckle fastening and are crafted from 100% responsibly sourced leather. We predict these will sell out fast.

If you're looking to elevate your summer ensemble without putting on a pair of heels, a flatform sandal is a great alternative. Designed to slightly boost your height without compromising on comfort, this style from M&S is tres chic. With glam gold buckles, raffia detailing and a choice of either cream or black, they are ticking all of our boxes.

A strappy heeled sandal is a staple in any summer wardrobe. The perfect finishing touch to any occasion-wear look, the classy shoe looks great paired with everything from floaty dresses to tailored trousers and midi skirts. We love the pistachio green hue of this gorgeous M&S pair. The best part? They feature special Insolia technology to reduce pressure on your feet and improve stability.

High-shine metallics were big news on the SS24 catwalks, so it's no surprise that Sienna incorporated them into her collection with M&S. Add a flash of on-trend silver to your look with these stylish thong sandals. Crafted from real leather, invest now and re-wear for summers to come. You can also snap them up in timeless tan.

Emulating the iconic Birkenstock look without actually having to spend out on the real deal couldn't be easier thanks to M&S. Their footbed sliders, available in khaki and chestnut, offer classic yet practical style at its very best. They feature stain-resistant suede upper and antibacterial padding to keep your feet feeling fresh all summer long. The designer dupe is selling like hot cakes, so we'd recommend moving fast if you're interested!

Whether you are heading on a staycation this summer or jetting-setting somewhere exotic (we're not jealous at all), no warm weather wardrobe is complete without a flip-flop style sandal. If you're looking for something slightly classier than your classic rubber flip-flop, these thong sandals from M&S offer the perfect hybrid to take you from the beach to the bar. Antibacterial foam padding keep feet fresh too.

Make a style statement this season in fiery red kitten heel sandals. With a modern square toe and knotted straps, these sandals look way more expensive than their £35 price tag. In true M&S style, they offer practicality too, with an adjustable buckle fastening to offer a flexible fit and to keep your feet secure. The heel height is 5.5cm, to boost your look without being too uncomfortable to dance the night away.

If it's a timeless chunky (but not too chunky) black sandal that you're after, we have found the perfect pair. With a comfy flatform sole and contemporary gold square buckles, M&S is accommodating both function and fashion needs. They are made from 100% responsibly sourced leather, so you can love them for years to come.

What types of sandals does M&S sell?

The British brand has a plethora of summer sandals to choose from, to suit every mood and fancy. The sunshine ready styles feature fisherman sandals, chunky flatforms, classy mules, strappy block heels and classic footbed sliders – to name a few. Shop timeless hues, including black, cream and tan, or be bold in bright red or a metallic finish. There really is a sandal for every outfit and occasion.

How to find the best M&S sandals

With so many styles of sandal to choose from, it can feel a little overwhelming. If you are after a particular type of sandal, such as a heeled sandal or a slider, you can refine your search on the M&S website to only look at a particular design. Or perhaps you know you’d definitely like a black sandal, in which case we’d recommend filtering by colour to help you cut down your search and speed things up. You can even filter by best-selling if it’s the trending styles you are most interested in.

What shoe sizes are stocked at M&S?

M&S shoes for women are available to buy in sizes UK 3 through to UK 8, with several of the sandals also being available in half sizes and wide fit. If you are unsure of your size, be sure to check out their footwear size conversion chart to help you find your best fit.
