When the summer months roll around there is nothing we love more than slipping into a pair of comfy sandals.

The flat footwear not only saves us from getting sore soles, cramped toes or aching calves we get in heeled boots,but they are versatile and can be worn with any outfit and for any occasion.

There are a vast array of sandals to choose from, but there is one pair in particular that are on our radar - and they are from Marks & Spencer.

Why we rate it

The Leather Open Toe Sandals boast two front buckle straps, which can be adjusted to fit all foot shapes and sizes.

They also have Insolia Flex support inside for added comfort, while the flatform gives a little extra height as the heel measures 29mm.

Both the upper part of the shoe, lining and sock sections are all made of soft and durable leather.

The summer shoe is available to buy in shoe sizes three to eight, and comes in three colourways, including a soft blush pink, tan, and navy

But what we love most is the design is on sale, and has been reduced from £22.50 to just £18.50.

What the reviews say

Customers can’t get enough of the footwear item, which has been likened to popular Birkenstock sandals.

The M&S design has racked up over 170 glowing reviews. Here’s what customers have to say:

  • “Good fit and very comfy Buckles can easily be adjusted to individual fit Loved the pink, a natural summer tone that goes with everything.”

  • “A really comfortable sandal which is just like a Birkenstock but at a fraction of the price. I bought a pair years ago and they have now almost fallen apart because I wore them so much. They are ideal for summer but also they don't look out of place later in the year since they can be worn with socks or pop socks. Highly recommended.”

  • “Great buy. Comfy and practical.”
