Summer Sandals for the Ethical & Sustainable Shopper

Summer is right around the corner, and I've spent months in search of the perfect summer sandals. I finally found them, along with seven other pairs I wish I could buy! Here's a list of sandals that are versatile, high-quality, and well worth the price tag. Each brand included has a variety of products, so be sure to check out their full websites as well!

1. Joselyne Double Strap Sandal | $86 | FashionABLE

After several months of searching, I purchased these sandals to replace my favorite Target sandals that broke due to their poor quality. FashionABLE is one of my favorite ethical brands, so when they released shoes I was beyond excited! They are simple, comfortable, and stretch to fit your foot (although be sure to order a half size up!)
