The Look

One Sandal. Five Women. Nothing But Love.

When it comes to our 2018 Summer Collection, one style seems to have caught the eye of some of our most stylish customers. If we were giving an award for the style most coveted by our audience of influencers, stylists, and fashion professionals, the Niagara Cross Mule would handily take the crown.

And there’s no wonder that the Niagara has become such a standout from the line. The slide-on silhouette is perfect for a season that requires you to get up and go at a moment’s notice, and the low-profile heel and criss-cross strapping details give an air of effortless sophistication to any warm-weather wardrobe. In the last few months, we have loved seeing how our customer has chosen to wear this versatile sandal, so we reached out to a few of our friends for feedback on why they have made the Niagara their go-to Summer shoe.
