Uniqlo’s cross strap sandals may be made from faux leather (what animal is that from?!) but at £6.99 you can’t really argue with the price. These sandals might just be the ultimate male summer shoe, less studenty than a flip flop but far enough removed from those horrible "slides" that Westlife used to wear with white suits (shudder!). They also come in black and brown.
You could definitely get away with these at work, teamed with brown linen or cotton trousers and a white shirt but they’d also be good for a holiday. Maybe not somewhere too warm though, "faux leather" came be mighty sweaty!
