10 Best Tommy Hilfiger Sanals
The Lychee is definitely not a piece of footwear that one will easily forget. Its design can easily be paired with a dress or a pair of slacks. This is where the beauty of the Lychee comes from- their easily transferable level of style. The platform sole unit of this strapped footwear is one of the main reason why they are on this guide is because of their leather strapping and their platform base.
Usually, one would look at the base on these and wouldn’t really think much about it, they would just think of it as something that makes the shoes incredibly more stylish than your typical sandal. The thing about Lychee’s sole unit is that it has a rather solid and elevated base. This base (or platform in this case) is wrapped in a cork-like material that gives it a slightly vintage look. The platform base also allows the Lychee to provide it’s wearers with a slightly increased height that frankly, isn’t present on other models of sandals.
The leather strapping is one of the most prominent features of Lychee’s design. The Lychee features 2 interlocking straps on the forefoot and one single strap that goes over the toe area of the wearer. The cool thing about the straps is that they make the Lychee look a bit more elegant than they otherwise would. The fact that they’re made of a leather material makes the Lychee look a bit more refined than various other footwear.
Cost and Value
The Lychee actually looks amazing compared to its price. It’s one of the least expensive models mentioned on this guide so far as well - which is somewhat surprising considering the design it has. The use of leather in the creation of the straps is one of the main reasons why the Lychee was considered for this guide and provides users with such a high level of value. It isn’t often that sandals are made of leather and sold for a price as low as this one.
Allows for Easy Movement
Everyone sometimes needs that piece of footwear that doesn’t restrict their feet whatsoever. The Loreo flat is the perfect item for that occasion. The Loreo has a minimal design that makes use of 3 distinct straps allowing it to be the perfect item if you require the ability to make the most of the space that your feet take up. Another unique feature of the Loreo is the outgoing design that they make use of; they stand out wherever they’re worn because of it.
The design of the Loreo is one that can be considered as minimal as they get. I say this because of the fact that as soon as one looks at the upper of the sandal, they are made aware of 3 interconnecting bands that hold the entire sandal together. The connecting straps allow the Loreo to be the Sandal that one can wear to either the beach or for a casual event. Not to mention that the straps on the Loreo are all placed together with buckles, which allows them to be tightened to fit the foot snugly.
The buckle on the forefront of the Loreo may not be the most functional but it is a very attractive addition to its design. The Loreo has a design which makes it even more stylish than it would otherwise be, due to the addition of the traditional 'TH' logo placed on the forefoot of the sandal, directly in between the straps on this sandal. While it may not be considered the most functional addition to its design, it does improve the stylishness of the sandal immensely.
Cost and Value
The Loreo is actually yet another item on this list that can be considered to be on the low end of the spectrum in terms of price. The minimal design that it has is likely one of the main reasons why the sandal is priced at the affordable level. The good thing about the low price point of the sandal is that it allows wearers to be able to easily afford the model. One of the main areas of value provided by this model is the stylish design that it has.
If you want something with a bit of a more complex design, the Cathy is definitely the sandal for you. This sandal makes use of a more complex overlapping of straps in order to provide users with a bit more security. For all intents and purposes, the Cathy can be considered heel sandals. The good thing about the overlapping straps is that it allows the Cathy to provide an increasingly high level of security to users. Another reason why the Cathy was mentioned on this list is because of its use of something that was already mentioned about its design - it has a 3-inch heel.
3 inch block heel
The 3-inch heel on the Cathy is one of the things that users should definitely make note of if what they’re looking for is an added boost of height. That’s one of the quirks of having a heel with such a great length. In addition to this, the heel on the Cathy allows it to be incredibly versatile. Heels of this length have a very easy time being paired with dressier attire but, aren’t confined to that realm. They can easily be worn with casual items such as slacks as well.
We have yet to see an item on this list with straps such as this. The straps present in the design of the Cathy secure the foot (as much as they can) and provide one with what they need in terms of security because of their so doing. In addition to this, the straps add to the classy design that they have; they are also a huge reason why they can be worn with items such as jeans and dresses. The straps featured on the Cathy are made of a durable Faux leather, which takes away from worry about them possibly ripping.
Cost and Value
For a pair of longer heeled sandals such as the Cathy, the price is definitely reasonable. It isn’t often that one receives a multi-strapped (somewhat complex) design such as this one without having to worry about instant breakage. The cool thing about the design of the Cathy is that it’s made of a rather durable Faux Leather material; this instantly reduces the odds of the material breaking during use. This is also where the value of the sneaker comes from.
True to size
Bands reduce sweat
Support is average
The Take isn’t your everyday, standard object. It’s a sandal for those individuals who would like a bit more of a classy feel when they’re out and about in them. The Take features a nearly 3 inch blocked heel and an upper made of a breathable suede material. These features are what makes the Take one of the brand's greatest items on the market - they have the design that many individuals simply need to be added to their closet.
Many see the fact that the Take has a 3-inch block heel and immediately say that it isn’t something to pay any attention to. The thing about the presence of the block heel is that it adds a crazy level of versatility to this simple, elegant piece of footwear. Wearers are no longer confined to wearing the Take to casual gatherings. The blocked heel and the way that it easily blends with one’s outfit makes it an easy thing to wear these sandals to a professional gathering of your choice. Not to mention that the length of Take’s heel makes it much more comfortable than the typical heeled, sandal.
Suede leather upper
Have you ever worn a pair of sandals and felt the straps accumulating moisture along the top of your foot? If so, then wearing the Take will definitely take a great deal of that discomfort away from you. The take has dual straps that go over both your forefoot and toe area - this we can tell from looking at it though. The thing that’s a bit less obvious to the eye is the fact that the straps featured on the Take are perforated; immediately taking away from the sweat felt along the top of your foot.
Cost and Value
The Take is the go-to footwear for those individuals who are seeking a pair of mid-range priced sandals. Compared to other Footwear by this brand, the Take can easily be considered an affordable purchasing option. Heled models such as this one can easily provide their wearers with an insane level of value as well. The heel makes the sandal incredibly versatile, which is where a great deal of the value of this model comes from. In addition to the value provided by the 3-inch blocked heel in the Take, the suede bands around the forefoot and heel allow this sandal to also give one a key level of comfort.
1.5 inch Heel
True to Size
Now we have the Kandess, a model that can be considered nothing short of exceptional. Its muted colors and incredibly different forefoot design makes this sandal a one of a kind. The Kandess design has a perforated forefoot area made of a very durable leather material- this is one of those things that simply can’t be overlooked when one is searching for a pair of usable sandals. In addition to this, the branded hardware on the forefoot also makes it an easily recognizable addition to any outfit.
The forefoot of this item is definitely noticeable. The perforations in the forefoot of the Kandess takes away from the leather’s ability to lock the moisture away from the foot. The perforations also add to the style provided by the Kandess; it isn’t often that one sees a sandal that has a perforated upper such as this one. The Kandess looks amazing because of it.
Not many shoes are paid attention to because of their use of branding. The Kandess makes it kind of difficult to not notice the hardware. The Kandess makes use of an elegantly simple logo of the brand, effectively making it very difficult to not understand who created the item itself. This logo blends in with the design of the rest of the sandal but, also makes use of metallic ring around the rest of the structure which allows it to easily provide users with a recognizable shoe. The emblazoned logo on the forefoot of the Kandess also adds quite a bit of eye appeal.
Cost and Value
When it comes to pricing, the Kandess is perfect for any individual who is on a budget. This sandal is incredibly inexpensive and thus, makes for a perfect purchasing option for those who would like to purchase something that won’t break their bank. In addition to this, the graceful placement of features in the Kandess makes it very easy to pair it with outfits of their choice. This is where the value of this pair of sandals comes from, the comfort and overall design it has.
Easy to Wear
The Sallio is definitely one of those models that can easily be worn on both the beach and around the house. This model features various perforations which can be found all along the band that covers the forefoot. In fact, the perforated band is the only band present in it’s design. The Sallio also makes use of a padded footbed which increases the comfort provided immensely.
The perforated band is one of those things that individuals simply aren’t made aware of with the purchase of their sandal. The perforated band allows the Sallio to easily provide individuals with what they need in terms of functionality due to the fact that it allows air to easily flow on top of an individual's forefoot. This has been mentioned before but, the design of the Sallio allows for the entire forefoot to receive coverage.
The padded footbed present in the design of the Sallio allows it to easily provide individuals with what they need in terms of comfort. The padding somewhat reduces the effect of the flatbed design of the insole. The padding appears to be an in-sewn level of cushioning that slightly conforms to the curves of one’s underfoot. This works wonders for those who plan to do a bit of walking in their pair.
Cost and Value
The Sallio’s price range varies but, it typically manages to stay on the lower end of the spectrum in regards to pricing. The low price range of the Sallio allows it to easily considered affordable if not expensive. For a minimal flop such as this, you can't really expect to find better. The value of the Sallio stems from the features mentioned above, the perforated upper and padded footbed featured.
We’re ending this guide off with a beautifully designed piece of footwear. The Kali features a suede forefoot band as well as an adjustable strap that lays directly above one’s ankle. The wedge on this mode is designed from a nylon covering which adds a bit of protection to its design. Despite popular belief, the covering over the wedge in this model is one of the major things that allows this model to provide such a high level of functionality to its wearers.
Many wedged footwear items have a very difficult time keeping up with their use - they just tend to break down very easily. The casing over the wedge protects the underlayer form being chipped away easily. Many don't know this about nylon but its durable nature allows it to be the perfect candidate for protecting the outer layer of a shoe. It's very hard to rip through it so it protects the wedge of the sandal from damage.
We’ve seen suede straps on this list before but, we haven’t been able to see straps that feature buckled straps before. The straps on the Kali manage to go right over the heel; the adjustable nature of the strap also allows it to tighten when placed on this part of the foot. The strap along the forefoot of the sandal closes at an angle which makes it a wonder for those who would like a bit of a more sophisticated look.
Cost and Value
The funny thing about the Kali being such a high-class looking sandal, it is nowhere near the most expensive item on this list. This implies that the Kali is a somewhat inexpensive model of sandal. The Kali is featured on this list because of the obviously high level of functionality present in its design. The straps, while being aesthetically pleasing also allows the wearer to have what they need in terms of security due to the fact that they cover both the back and front of the ankle.
Easy to Implement
Comes a Bit Wide
The brand wanted to make sure that people knew who made this particular sandal when they looked at it. The design of the Sia is nothing that stands out too much. The thing about it that does make it appear to be something that stands out quite a bit is the use of the enlarged “TH” logo in the middle of the forefoot. It also has a single strap present in its design which makes it incredibly easy to physically place on one’s foot.
The single strap present in the design of the Sia makes it one of the easiest featured items on this list to place on. The strap allows the Sia to simply slide on to one’s foot. There is no need to even think about multiple adjustable buckles being present in the design of the Sia whatsoever. As long as you purchase the correct size, you don’t have to worry about much else happening.
If it weren’t for the logo on the Sia, it would be rather difficult to even make note of the fact that it’s made by this brand. The Sia features an enlarged logo running across the forefoot of its design. This logo also makes the Sia a rather noticeable piece of footwear. It takes away from the basic black colored hide it comes equipped with effectively allowing it to provide one with what they need in terms of style because of it so being. Also, did I mention that the logo is set in a gold coloring which makes it even flashier than it had been before?
Cost and Value
You would expect to spend a fair amount of money when you purchase an item that stands out as much as the Sia. The large buckle makes it kind of difficult to see this item as being anything other than expensive. Luckily, the Sia is definitely affordable. In fact, it can likely be viewed as being incredibly inexpensive. The value of the Sia comes from its flashy and utterly simple design.
Easy to Place On
Fit May Be Off
The Kitty is definitely one of those go-to sandals for individuals who are looking for simple yet elegant footwear. The design of the Kitty is one that uses leather strapping which allows it to easily provide users with an easy method of entry as well as an incredibly simple method of entry into its design. Thee are the very reasons why it was so important to make note of this item on this guide, it has features which make it a very straightforward item to use.
This has been mentioned various times throughout this guide but, the buckle design that the Kitty makes use of is an incredible addition. It allows the Kitty to be easily adjustable which means that users won’t have to worry about ill-fitting footwear with its purchase. Along with that, it’s also imperative that individuals purchase their correct size as well. With that being said, the buckle also adds a level of style to the design that wouldn’t have otherwise been present.
Easy to put on
While the buckle in the Kitty’s design does give it the ability to provide users with a level of adjustability, the strapping in the design is what allows the Kitty to be relatively simple to place on. The strap design makes it a piece of footwear that individuals can easily place on their feet; this takes away from the complications that typically come along with purchasing complicated designs for footwear.
Cost and Value
The pricing of items on this guide just appears to be getting lower and lower. The Kitty is an item that is priced exceptionally low yet still manages to give a fair amount of value to those individuals who decide to purchase it. This value stems from the ease of use and comfort that this model provides to wearers. Something that wasn’t mentioned in the body of the review but should be taken note of is the fact that the Kitty is also rather versatile as well. As has become the trend in this guide, the Kitty can be worn with various different outfit types as well.
Not Very Comfortable
Nothing gets quite as minimalist as the Landmark Flat. This sandal has a T strap design that basically makes it very difficult to slip out of them. The strap runs around the back of the foot and adjusts to ensure that you have the highest level of snugness. This and the thin outsole on this model are why it’s been featured on this list, it’s meant to be the most functional pair of Sandals that you place on your foot.
The T strap is the feature of the Landmark that makes it so easy of an item to wear. The strap is basically a single piece of fabric that goes around the user's foot. The single strapping basically allows the Landmark to secure around both the forefoot and the heel making it very difficult for the material to slide off of one’s foot. The use of the adjustable buckle enhances the fit provided by the T Strap design of the Landmark as well.
It was mentioned that the design of the Landmark could be considered in incredibly minimal. This goes down all of the way to the design of the outsole. The outsole on the Landmark, unlike the various different items featured on this list, is incredibly thin. The thin design of the outsole enhances the Landmarks already high level of flexibility as well as reduces the time needed to move while worn.
Cost and Value
A good sign when purchasing something of a relatively small stature is a mid-range price. The price of the Landmark can be considered neither high nor low - it’s just in the middle. This is one of the best things about the design because of the fact that it signals that a bit of care was placed in the creation of this model. The value of the Landmark comes from the snug fit that it provides to its wearers. This is an item that one can be sure won’t just “slip” off of their foot.
Criteria Used for Evaluation
One of the most well-sought out features in any item, not just a sandal is its ability to be worn in various places. This comes down to various different things aside. While the versatility of this particular option may be somewhat limited, it was still very important to make note of the items’ ability to paired with clothing ranging from slacks all the way to sundresses and other things. Think about how difficult it would be to constantly have to purchase clothing items because the things that you had weren’t able to be worn with a multitude of the things you already own.
The actual style of the footwear that you’re considering to purchase plays a very important role in its ability to provide you with what you need in terms of functionality and durability. Stylistic elements such as the level of minimalism and the coloring method used throughout the design play a very important role in deciding whether or not the shoe will be worn in a variety of places outside of the typical beach environment. It was important to make sure that the designs included has both a bit of class as well as a casual look that ensures that they can be worn on both the beach and to a casual/dress event.
Well, one of the hardest things to do with any outfit is to pair it with a pair of gaudy looking shoes. Seriously, there have been various times when I’ve purchased extremely outlandish footwear and confined to only wearing it with the outfit that I purchased it to be worn with. For this reason, we wanted to make sure that the items on this list would have either a variety of different coloring options or had a basic coloring scheme that could be used with a variety of different outfits.
This is a criterion that simply must have quite a bit of attention paid to it. A particular items ability to withstand a high level of use without breaking down or otherwise being deemed unwearable is very important. It’s literally the difference between the item being able to provide an individual with both a high level and a low level of value – that’s just how important it is. With that being said, the designs included on this list have all been chosen according to a few factors that play an important part in a sandal’s ability to provide an individual with any level of value.
Materials: the materials used to actually create the items in question needed to have a lot of emphases placed on them as well. We wanted to make sure that they were of a quality make and wouldn’t simply break down after being used for any length of time. For this reason, we made sure to include materials that would be able to provide individuals with at least a bit of security in the fact that they wouldn’t break down easily. Materials such as leather (the most prominent material featured) were included simply because of the fact that they are incredibly durable.
Leather: If you’re looking for a material that won’t rip or break easily (if at all) look for a dense material such as leather. This material is great for those who would keep up with their footwear but understand that they likely won’t be able to watch out for every possible thing that could damage it.
Suede: Suede is a material that is just as durable as leather but also adds in a bit of a classy flair that the leather counterpart simply doesn’t have. With this material, it’s incredibly important to make note of the fact that water will likely destroy it and cause it to no longer be wearable. This can easily be avoided by using a protectant of some sort.
Really, value and durability go hand in hand. You don’t want to get an affordable shoe and have to sacrifice the durability of the shoe. Conversely, you don’t want to sacrifice the durability just to get something affordable. It pays to plan in advance sometimes. If you need to, make a budget and set aside money for weeks or months in order to purchase the shoes you need without having to worry about the cost.
However, if that is not an option as you need the shoes right now, you can rest assured the shoes on our list are highly rated for durability across the board. You will have to determine what is an appropriate amount for your budget personally. We do take into high accord the price range of shoes when making our list. We strive to bring shoes that can easily fit into almost any budget.
Expert Interviews & Opinions
Tommy Hilfiger used to be a judge on a TV show, 'The Cut'. He also never attended a design school, but instead, designed jeans, and opened a store called 'The People's Place' in the 1970's.
If you look at the successful empire of fashion influence and design that Tommy Hilfiger has grown from the bottom up, you'd never guess he filed for bankruptcy in 1977 after the initial success of his first store.
Success of his empire was built on networking, risks, and determination, and goes to show that it takes failures to build bigger successes.
