How to treat your feet this summer

We know comfort is just as important as style when it comes to sandals. That’s why our pairs not only look good but feel good too, thanks to clever innovations like Insolia Flex. But don't just take our word for it. We asked three style bloggers to pick their favourite M&S sandals and to share their advice on how to treat your feet

Cara Sutherland at Within These Walls

“Treat yourself”

Fashion and lifestyle blogger Cara Sutherland, AKA the author of the Within These Walls blog, believes the key to happy feet is to choose quality sandals that’ll last all summer (and the next), like this woven-leather pair: “A good sandal should be super comfortable – it’s worth taking time to look at how the sandal is made.”

Cara also knows the best way to show off our sandals is with a little pampering: “Start the season with a pedicure to boost your bare-foot confidence – it’ll leave them feeling fabulous.”

Anna Hart at South Molton St Style

"Dress for the occasion"

Anna Hart, who nails occasion dressing on her fashion blog South Molton St Style, has a sandal for every summer activity. She opts for smart backless loafers, like these woven-leather mules, as a warm-weather work alternative and notes that “for special occasions, block heels are much easier to stroll around in than stilettos – especially if you’re on grass!”

If you want to stand out in sandals like Anna, her advice is to “take good care of your feet”. Rely on the secret support of our clever innovations, like Insolia Flex and Light as Air.

Patricia Batatas at Peexo

“Choose comfort”

When it comes to shopping for summer sandals, fashion blogger Patricia Batatas, AKA Peexo, takes a practical approach: “Find a pair that goes perfectly with any outfit. You can’t go wrong with neutrals.”

Patricia also knows details are key: “If you plan on wearing your sandals for a long time, choose a pair with an ankle strap, or opt for sliders for ease.”

Patricia’s top tip for picking the right sandals for you? “Ask yourself where you’ll wear your sandals.” Whether home or away, your feet will thank you when they’re cushioned in comfort.
