2020 Spring Sandal Trends

A few days ago we talked about the best winter to spring transition shoes for this awkward time of year, so today let’s look ahead to what the 2020 spring sandal trends have in store for us this season.

2020 Spring Sandal Trends for Real Life

It will be a while before I’m breaking out my sandals here in Philly, but I’ve already ordered several new pairs to test out, and I’m loving the spring sandal trends so far!

A lot of these overlap, so I’m just going to do one big shopping widget at the end of the post with a bunch of recommendations at all price points.


Platforms seem to go in and out each year, and this season they’re back! I love a good platform wedge sandal because you get all of the height and none of the discomfort of heels.

The Vince Camuto platform wedges pictured above are verrrry comfortable, if you’re in the market for a pair. Yes, they look high, but the heel drop is only 3″.

square toe

The square toe was also a trend last fall and winter with boots and pumps, but it’s a lot easier to wear in a sandal.

In fact, if you have a wide toe box, as I do, these are so much more flattering to the foot than the pointy-toe sandals that were trending last year. Nobody wants to see your toes flopping over the edge of your sandals. #notagoodlook

The Topshop pair shown above also comes in gold and a vibrant green, and I really like the flared 2″ block heel.


Yep, mules are a thing with sandals, and I find them easier to keep on the foot than the closed toe styles.

The Treasure & Bond pair pictured above also incorporates the block heel trend. (See below.)

thin straps

Thin strappy sandals are very of the moment, and I especially like the two-strap styles like the Steve Madden pair shown above.

I have these, and they are very comfortable.

snake print

Yep! Snake print is still going strong right into spring. I might have gone a little overboard with this trend already!

The wedge slides pictured above are very comfortable and easy to walk in, and they also incorporate the square toe trend.

If snake print isn’t your thing, they also come in black suede as well as a pink and a beige moc croc.


Studs are very on trend right now, and I love how they incorporate an edgy vibe into a feminine silhouette.

The Marc Fisher pair shown above has super soft straps, and the flat sole makes them perfect for everyday wear with shorts and crop jeans.

block heel

I’m loving that so many of the block heel sandals that are trending this year have a lower heel.

The Dolce Vita pair pictured above incorporates the snake print trend, the thin straps, as well as the block heel… and the toe is fairly squared-off as well.

If snake print isn’t your thing, they also come in several solid colors as well as a fun raffia.
