Mens sandals (mandals) have a pretty bad reputation but they don’t have to. When the weather heats up your only options don’t have to be thongs (for our international readers aka. flip flops), sneakers or deck shoes. Tips to keep it from looking scruffy or like you stole your dad’s shoes – keep the rest of the look stylish. Pair back with linen shirts, shorts or trousers and channel your inner European. Roll the cuffs on your jeans or pants to keep the look more trend based than daggy. Also of note: treat yourself to a little freshen up of the feet, bare minimum cut your nails!
