Do you love it when a brand makes your favourite style in loads of different colour options?
When I really like a shoe, I’ve bought it in 3 or 4 colourways in the past. As long as the style is relatively timeless, affordable, comfortable and fits you well, it’s a good idea.
This sandal from Office is a great basic, and the 4cm block heel gives you extra height without instability.
Although the upper is made from synthetic leather, these sandals are lined with real leather, which will make sure they don’t feel too sweaty.
