Sandal season is finally upon us – well sort of. But by this point, we’re refusing to tuck our tootsies away in trainers any longer, especially when there are so many incredible sandals on offer. Don’t believe us? Well let us tell you a little something about our one of our go-to stores for summer sandals: New Look. New Look sandals are some of the best in the business, and the best part? They're affordable, too.

Now we all know that New Look nails its shoe collection every single season, but this time round the high street hero has really stepped up its sandal game. We’re talking designer dupes - such as this perfect Hermès Chypre dupe - luxe-looking styles and some seriously on-trend designs. However, unlike those high-end alternatives, New Look's sandals all come with a seriously accessible price tag which is ideal right now.

We aren’t the only ones loving New Look’s sandals – Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle recently teamed up with the brand and was spotted wearing a pair of stitch-detail sliders on Instagram. If they’re good enough for a member of Girls Aloud, then they're good enough for us.

So get your pedicures at the ready as you’re about to fall in love with our fave New Look sandals.
