ASOS Factually Sport Sandals

Want to look great but have a limited budget? These ASOS sandals are for you.

The rich black color and bold stitching make these shoes the perfect high street substitute for Chanel’s Dad sandals.

These are traditional slip-on sandals with open toes, perfect for warm weather, but have been modernized thanks to the adhesive straps - no slippage here!

Pros

  • The upper of these shoes is faux leather which makes them the perfect vegan choice. 
  • Available in a Wide Fit option with adjustable straps so everyone can find their best fit.

Cons

  •  The sole of these shoes is flat with a molded footbed, meaning arch support isn’t fantastic for all-day wear.
