When it comes to picking shoes for dressy occasions this spring and summer, less is better. Opt for a pair of minimalist shoes. Ours are pared down; they’re a touch more refined than our wedges, clogs and flat sandals.
We offer minimalist styles at varying heel heights. Let your comfort level and style decide which you’ll gravitate towards. The soles of our refined styles are delicate; the leather is dimensional, buttery soft to the touch, but unadorned, which lets its beauty remain unaffected by embellishment.
Minimalist shoes go best with simple outfits: tee shirts layered under lightweight sweaters, structured pants or tailored skirts. But because of their refreshing simplicity, you can also wear them with your flowing maxi skirt or embellished dress.

For dressier occasions, opt for a comfortable heel height just over three inches. BIMA is a beautiful mule crafted from soft full-grain and suede. It’s available in six leathers that span neutrals and pastels. HOLGUIN is a summer sandal with a natural stacked heel. Our favorite leather for this sandal is stone, a blue-grey shade that reminds us of a breeze just after summer rain has abated.

We also offer sandals crafted on a mid-height heel: a perfect intersection between casual and dressy. For a refined sandal, opt for MEDAN, a modern sandal crafted from a palette of muted leathers. For a refined mule, slip into MAKATI, a wonderful mule with an interesting leather cutout. This sharp style is available in three smooth neutral tones.

While we’re talking mid-heights, there’s the MALANG, pictured below. This is a classy, well-crafted sandal with durable double buckle straps. This sandal is our favorite go-to for summer dresses. With comfortable height, these sandals elongate legs in a flattering way. The heel is manageable, and the leather is soft and supple.
In their minimalist design, MALANG is the perfect going out summer sandal. Shop it in black or luggage.
