Here's a shopping list to get you started!

Among the most intriguing fashion trends this 2019—denim bike shorts, tie-dye, ugly sandals—velcro, outdoorsy, sports sandals seem to raise many brows at the moment. "Stylish velcro sandals" could be construed as an oxymoron because this type of footwear is designed for its ultimate function alone: to stay put on your feet as you hike mountains and traverse rivers. It may not exactly be a top choice of footwear when running errands, attending events, or jumping from boutique to boutique on an afternoon shopping jaunt, but it's time to see this utilitarian sandal in a new light as Prada reboots it on the runway as a chunky heeled, velcro-clad, logofied version. With this new look, we're convinced that it is indeed a cool, practical pair to own that will not have you sacrificing comfort over style.
