Our Favorite ’70’s Inspired Narrow Women’s Summer Sandals


With the ’70’s influence very prevalent in shoe and clothing this Summer, we’re seeing a lot of platforms, cork, espadrilles and wedges in women’s narrow sandals this season. The look is definitely reminiscent of the 1970’s yet you’ll definitely see 2011 flare in each of them.

Two of our favorite ’70’s inspired looks from Stuart Weitzman’s Alex¬†and the Alexlo espadrille sandals. In fact Stuart Weitzman - Alex (Swamp Crochet) - Footwear Rachel McAdams was RECENTLY SPOTTED in them!

The Alex, pictured here in Swamp Crochet, is a wedge espadrille with a crocheted textile upper and an adjustable ankle strap with buckle closure, along with a Jute-trimmed platform wedge and a rubber sole. Heel Height is 5 inches with the Platform Height at 1 inch. Available in Swamp Crochet, Nero Crochet, Ivory Crochet, Chocolate Crochet and Gilt African Raffia.

Stuart Weitzman - Alexlo (Swamp Crochet) - FootwearThe Alexlo also boasts a Crocheted fabric upper, adjustable ankle strap with buckle closure and Jute-trimmed a platform wedge but the heel height at 2 1/ 2 inches and platform height of 1 1/ 2 inches offers a slightly different look and feel. It’s available in three colors: Swamp Crochet (pictured here), Chocolate Crochet and Nero Crochet.

Bella-Vita - Sangria (Navy Silk) - Footwear

Other ’70’s inspired sandals that we liked were this easy to wear slingback espadrille with it’s chic peep-toe. It would look great with white slacks and an blue striped top for an inspired nautical look (so in right now!) or with skirts, dresses, shorts, actually just about any outfit you can put together. Versatile and fun!


Vaneli - Chika (Black Smack/Gold Ornament) - Footwear


We also are in love with these chic patent leather sandal. Doesn’t it just scream ’70’s style with it’s square heel? We think it would look great with a maxi dress or skirt (a dress or a short skirt would look “dy-no-mite,” too!

David Tate Women's Gem Flat We like the ode to the ’70’s with the circular strap around the toe. Sandals in this silhouette were a very utilitarian and unisex brown leather back then. We like the 2000’s flair which incorporates stylish metallic and embellishments.



This sandal also represents the ’70’s with it’s pretty t-strap design which incorporates a rolled center strap and cork-covered wedge heel. It would look great with cropped pants, shorts, or a cute dress or skirt maxi, mini or something in between
