Editors' Picks: 10 Metallic Sandals for Spring

Issue 15 · Shades of Pastel · April 18, 2014

Metallics are an easy route to bold dressing. The slip of a silver heel at the base of a garment is transformative, and its reflective quality is a perfect match for the bright light of spring and summer.

We've been taking note of the recent heavy dose of metallic shoes on the market, and, one by one, pairs of copper sandals, gold clogs, and silver pumps have been trickling into the office. Here's the full reveal:

PePe Sandals in Silver from Makie Clothier | Remodelista

Above: Justine has had her PePe Silver Sandals ($185) from Makie from years. "Once again, comfortable, effortless style from Italy. They're great for a summer evening when you want a little something special, but don't feel like wobbling around in heels."

Riudavets Metallic Avarca Sandals in Copper | Remodelista

Above: Meredith has her eye on a pair of Riudvaets Metallic Avarca Sandals in copper (they're also available in silver and gold). The sandals are handmade in Menorca, Spain, with recycled, rubber soles; $120 at La Garçonne.

Robert Clergerie Corson Sandals in Metallic Silver | Remodelista

Above: Margot spotted the latest Robert Clergerie shoe collection at Louis on Boston's waterfront. The collection includes a glint of silver in almost every shoe; the Corson Sandal is shown here in a mirrored silver.

Martiniano Metallic High Glove Slipper | Remodelista

Above: Alexa is awaiting the arrival of LA shoe designer Martiniano Lopez's High Glove Metallic Shoes. The flat Glove Slippers in Gold are currently available through Creatures of Comfort for $350.

Swedish Hasbeens Silver Metallic Sandals | Remodelista

Above: Christine just bought a pair of silver clog Sandals from Swedish Hasbeens: "Silver is a good color for summer. In London it can still be cool out in the summer, so I thought colored socks would look great through the cutouts in these shoes; they remind me of the school shoes I wore when I was little." The sandals are £125 through Shoescribe.

No.6 Two-Strap Clog in Pewter | Remodelista

Above: Michelle's pick? No.6's Two Strap Clogs with a medium height heel in a pewter finish; $265 from No.6.

Sandgren Clogs in Tokyo Gold | Remodelista

Above: Erin has worn her pewter-colored clogs for years. "They're by Sandgrens (formerly Ugglebo) and were a custom design and color—a service, unfortunately, no longer offered," she says. Sandgrens' Tokyo Clogs ($129) are a similar look in gold.


Arizona Silver Birkenstocks for J. Crew | Remodelista

Above: Francesca and Julie are both on board with Birkenstocks; especially the Birkenstock Metallic Leather Arizona Sandals from J. Crew; $130 at J. Crew.

Sven Low Heel Silver Clogs | Remodelista

Above: Sven's Plain Clogs in pewter are, as Sarah says, "great for knocking around in: super comfortable, great for traveling, and reasonably priced." Shown here is the Sven Low Heel Plain Clog; $170 (the Sven Medium Heel Plain Clog is available for $195).

Charlotte Stone Barton Sandals in Rose Gold Metallic | Remodelista

Above: Dalilah likes Charlotte Stone's Barton Sandal in Rose Gold ($128). She's eager to pair the simple sandals with white denim for spring and summer.

Golden Ponies Shoes from Mexico | Remodelista

Above: Izabella likes the metallic handmade shoes from Golden Ponies, a company in Guadalajara, Mexico. She discovered them through French stylist Aurélie Lécuyer of Le Dans La. The Pony Oxfords, shown here, are made of soft leather and ideal for dancing; $40 each.
