It seems like it was only a matter of time before we saw the resurgence of fisherman sandals, that closed-toe, woven style that was last ubiquitous in the ’90s, but here we are: they’re back. Whether you opt for a super-luxe designer version, of which there are many, or a cheap and cheerful pair that you hope will last all season, there are plenty of options. Rebecca Tay presents five pairs that feel fresh for spring.

Loewe 'Campo' sandals, $1,450 at Holt Renfrew,


Loewe fans, and indeed Jonathan Anderson himself, are as die-hard as they come and we honestly can’t disagree. Creative, conceptual, of excellent quality and always wearable, the brand has become one that seemingly can do no wrong. Perhaps that’s why, although these Campo brushed suede sandals are incredibly expensive, we have no doubt that there will be legions of people wearing them this season. Pair it with skirts, jeans and everything else.

Ancient Greek Sandals 'Homeria' Sandals, $629 at Farfetch,


Anyone who has worn a pair of ancient Greek sandals will know how comfortable they are and how well they wear even after a summer in the sand and sea. The same should be said for this Homeria model, made of woven raffia, with the openings and ankle strap typical of a fisherman sandal and a more modern almond-shaped toe.

Wrenlie grizzly leather sandals, $195 at Dr. Martens,

Durable soles

If you prefer sturdy, sturdy sandals rather than flimsy ones to throw in your beach bag, Dr. Martens’ version of fisherman sandals, aptly named Wrenlie and available in a dark brown shade called Grizzly, should appeal to you. But don’t let that stop you from wearing them with tea dresses and feminine floral pieces – there’s nothing better than a bit of style juxtaposition in the summer.

Melissa Possession Sandals, $95 at SSENSE,

Puddle Jumpers

Contrary to what their name suggests, most modern fisherman sandals are actually not suitable for fishing, or even water. Not so with this Possession pair from Melissa, a brand known for its rubber, jelly, and other waterproof styles. Best of all, although they are super practical for a rainy spring, their black tone is elegant enough to make them versatile and great with both casual and more elegant outfits.

Monolith rubber sandal, $1,120 at Prada,


Prada, and its sister brand, Miu Miu, has been on the rise for the past few seasons, hitting millennials, Generation Z and beyond hard. From its classic inverted triangle logo plaque to styles like these rubber Monolith sandals, the brand is popping up everywhere. Not sure how to use them? Why, with 90s era pedals of course.
