Keep your feet on solid ground with heavyweight sandals

Every woman needs a little boost in their height every once in a while, but constantly pounding the concrete pavement in heels can be brutal on your feet. Here is where spring/summer 2016's footwear trend, chunky-soled sandals, come in.

While there is nothing quite like slipping on a pair of sandals to tackle our warm weather woes, we understand the need to look long and lean. This season, chunky sandals with double the sole and double the height, means you'll be soaring in style, and crucially, without the agony.

The SS16 runways presented a bevy of options to cater to everyone's sartorial needs. From Burberry Prorsum's utilitarian sling-backs to Alexander Wang's and Chanel's Teva-style sandals, strutting down the city streets in these heavyweight kicks will raise your game (and stature). Take your pick and put a spring in your step.
