10 Pairs of Barely-there sandals under £300

It’s been a while since a trend has taken hold quite like the barely-there/minimal/ strappy sandal and it’s not a trend that seems to leaving any time soon. Not a high street store nor a mid-priced brand has failed to reproduced it’s own version of the trend. So we thought it was about time to do a round up of the best styles at the best prices. 

Granted it’s a trend that does require beautiful feet, or at best, a beautiful pedicure, but the simple 90s inspired effect of theses sandals works just as well for the minimal dresser - teamed with jeans and a silk blouse -as it does for a maximalist -layered with anklets and floaty dresses. Opt for a manageable height heel (read: under 60mm) and you can follow that old cliché and wear them day-to-night. Team now with jeans or high waist chinos and come summer with dresses and skirts or Go all out 90s we say and wear with a slip skirt and a baguette bag. Here are our favourite 10 pairs under £300…

Sandals, £46, Topshop 

A slightly chunkier play on the trend the height and weight of this pair by Topshop makes them feel much more daytime appropriate and their simplicity makes them seem much more expensive than they are don't you think?


Sandals, £49.99, Mango 

Mango are always so good at picking up on subtly chic colour ways and their version of the barely-there sandal comes in this lovely orangey- tan and in a mauve-lilac tone both of which will look so great teamed with a natural linen suit or high waist trousers.

Sandlas, £89, Uterque 

A simple choice of metallic leather and the twist detail in the strap takes Uterque's version from a daytime stable to a sexy but simple evening shoe. 

Sandals, £235, ATP Atelier 

ATP Atelier is one of our favourite brands for its accessible price point, incredible quality and sustainability. This pair almost remind us of a heeled flip flop and we like!

Sandals. £270, Staud

We almost lost it when we heard our beloved Staud - maker of some of the best bags (and clothes!) around were launching shoes. Predictably they're all fabulous but also super easy to wear and there interpretation of the sandal is just that. The subtle bend of the heel and square toe will do all the talking. 

Sandals, £300, By Far

It doesn't get much simpler than By Far's Thalia mule. Again the square toe are all these sandals need and the heel heigh at 5cm is just high enough to elongate the leg but low enough to trot around in all day.

Sandals, £213.25, Joie 

If a square toe is one step too 90s for you then this pair by Joie still screams minimal chic while adopting more classic features. The silver metallic means it will make just as perfect evening shoe as it will look amazing teamed with rolled up boyfriend jeans.

Sandals, £69 , Charles and Keith 

If you don't know Charles and Keith, you need to. At high street prices they make unique but wearable shoes and the addition of this spherical heel makes these the perfect shoe for someone who likes to express themself from the feet up,

Sandals , £89.95 Massimo Dutti

Massimo Dutti is our new go-to for pieces that look so much more expensive than they are. And their quality seems to stand the test of time. These white naked sandals are close to perfect and will work with everything come summer. 

Sandals, £69, Urban Outfitters

Trust &Other Stories to choose to recreate this simple sandal in perennially chic olive green. Ok we know its hard to imagine right now when you're feet are basically see-through but imagine these with tanned feet come summer! P.S If you are looking for something with a nod to the trend but a hint of difference we also love these from & other Stories
