Minimalist Summer Sandals – The Complete List

Summertime is when minimalist footwear really shines. Fortunately for us, barefoot brands are doing a great job expanding beyond athletic styles to include everyday shoes, so now there are quite a lot to choose from that look and feel amaze! Even the running sandals are looking good these days.

Below you’ll find a section on Women’s Fashion Sandals followed by Unisex Athletic Sandals.

For info on the sandals I wore most last summer, check out this post. And for regularly updated info on the shoes I’m wearing, be sure to follow me on Instagram!

  1. Bedrock does custom sandals as well: where you trace your foot and send them a scan. They aren’t as thick as the Cairns. My husband has size 18 feet, and they are his go-to sandals in the summer. 🙂

  2. Love this list! Would it be possible to do an update to this post with each photo labeled? It is taking me some serious sleuthing to track down my favorites in the list…

    1. Good idea! It’s true, this post needs some TLC, I’ll be working on updating it in 2021 🙂 If you have any questions about a specific shoe you see in the photo let me know!

Hi. I'm Anya.

I first discovered “barefoot shoes” after a long bout of foot issues. I realized that with some extra research (and a whole new set of standards), I could curate shoes that made me feel amazing and didn’t require any compromises. I started my blog Anya’s Reviews to share what I learned with others.
