Summer is the time when down-dressed, casual looks magically become stylish again. Chinos, short sleeves, and linen are all coming back into our closets, meaning it's time find the perfect flip-flops and summer sandals to top off your look. For whoever you want to be this summer and whatever adventures you might have on your calendar, we’ve rounded up the best, coolest, freshest, and most exciting sandal trends of the season.
As far as summer footwear goes, the lace-up sandal is no longer a trend—it's a staple for your warm-weather wardrobe. The best way to wear them? Use our wide selection of lace-up sandals to dress up your shorts, a romper or a jumpsuit. Whether you sport lace or stripes, these statement sandals will elongate your frame and take your look to the next level. The lace-up shoe can instantly add a little edge to the feminine trend, and it is a great way to take your favorite summer skirt from day to night. If you choose to go with a wedge sandal, we highly recommend the stunner of the summer, the Fly London ‘Yuke’ platform sandal. Not loving an elongated leg? The Naot Yarrow sandal is a comfortable and colorful choice if you want to try the trend in a more casual way.
Wedge sandals were hot trend again this spring, but we will also see this trend carry us into summertime - and for a good reason! Wedge sandals score high on the comfort and chic-factor, giving all the ladies more height for less hurt. A wedged sandal in a neutral tone are great ways to elongate your legs, yet are chic enough to wear with any other color in your wardrobe, offering versatility without being boring or basic. With the right pair of neutral wedges, you can go from a day at the office to a summer evening barbecue with friends. Simply put, wedged sandals are cool both in the way they look and the way they feel. For our fashion-forward fashionistas, we recommend either the Clark’s Annadel Eirwyn (pictured above in Sand) or the Kork-Ease Austin (pictured above in Rust).
The 70’s are back, baby! A perfect complement to your style with the arrival of warm weather, the coveted clog is back in action. For those days when comfort is all that matters—except you still want to hold onto your style cred— we recommend pulling out a pair of clogs. And with walkable block heels, chic crisscross bodies, and a bright crop of colors, they're so much cooler than the clogs you remember from your childhood. For a Sunday morning step-out, try the Ugg Janie Clog with your favorite pair white jeans and a simple top. For a comfy & très chic shoe out on the town, we recommend the Dansko Thea.
No matter the season, flip flops are a coveted shoe that gives our toes a break from the squeeze of our workday heals. With all day comfort guaranteed, you can easily slip them on to take a walk with your dog or kick them off for a day at the beach. This summer, expect to see the flip-flop trend get slimmer. This summer will feature a wide variety of flip flops with thinner straps than ever before for a fancy and feminine twist. Best of all, you can still expect the same amount of comfort, durability, and style from all the flip flop brands you know and love! From a brunch to a boat, or biking to the beach, an essential women's flip flop we recommend is Olukai Kulapa Kai Leather- the signature thin straps never get loose and the patented design never loses its shape. If you're looking for something more classic, the Rainbows Premier Leather Narrow Strap Sandal offers a feminine twist to the classic Rainbow shoe.
With summer in full swing, now is the time to find yourself a pair of cute and comfortable sandals to go with every sundress and bikini you slip on this season. From clogs to wedges, these sandal options are the perfect way to beat the heat while still looking chic and put together. No matter what you're doing or where you’re going this summer, there's a sandal for everyone for every occasion at Abbadabba’s.

April Showers may bring May flowers, but in Atlanta - you never know what the weather will bring. Although we’re excited for the upcoming sandal season, it is always best to prepare against the war on precipitation. Whether you’re looking to tuck your skinny jeans into a pair of Hunter wellies or strap up some Chacos, now is the time to invest in footwear built for the season surrounded by water. Take a peek at our top picks for footwear that will keep you dry and comfortable -- rain or shine!
Before you make any assumptions about a colorful pair of toe gloves, consider the reason that this city is nicknamed “Hotlanta”. Sure, they aren’t your typical rain shoes, but these Vibrams were expertly-designed with gripping soles and breathable mesh. We love recommending them to our customers because these are a water resistant shoe that lacks the bulk of a rain boot. After all, when it's hot and sticky out, the last thing you want to wear is a pair of heavy pair of winter rain boots. In addition, for all of our river rats, these are the best shoes on the market for watersports such as paddle boarding, kayaking, and boating. So whether you’re kayaking the Chattahoochee, cruising along Lake Allatoona, or simply just running errands in the rain, rest assured that Vibram are a summer staple for the Atlanta heat.
Oh, the beloved Chaco. The classic sport sandal is the summer uniform for many Atlanta residents. The company has loyal followers, lovingly referred to as the #ChacoNation. Their devoted fanbase is no surprise to us, considering the Chaco is a quintessential shoe for the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you’re hiking Stone Mountain, walking your dog around Piedmont Park, or just taking a casual walk along the Chattahoochee River, the Chaco sandal can be worn all-day, everyday. Best of all, the Spring 2017 collection offers a great variety of new colors and styles, so you can find the perfect fit for your feet. We recommend trying the Chaco Women’s Z/2 Classic, with a new print in a color perfect for a Georgia peach.
Let’s explore the Blundstone. It's hard to find classic, rugged work boots that also look great when there's work to be done. This boot is lean, clean and as straightforward as they get. It’s preferred among customers for it’s lightweight exterior. Why does Abbadabba’s love them? The boots simplicity goes with everything - jeans, pants, shorts, whatever the Atlanta weather brings! And while they have evolved in style, design, and technology over the years, their consistent quality is what keeps customers coming back. Blundstone is built to go anywhere, do anything, and look great every step of the way.
The Hunter rain boot has been around forever - and there’s a simple reason why: the waterproof rubber makes for an easy clean up. Best of all, these boots are season-less! Regardless of the ever changing fashion industry trends, these boots are timeless and can be worn throughout every season of the year. So if you like a classic brand, good quality, and a stylish boot, the Hunter Original Short Gloss Rain Boot is perfect for some fashionable puddle stomping.
With the promise of April showers just around the corner, now is the best time to invest in some waterproof boots from Abbadabba’s. These top picks are only a glimpse into our variety of options and will help you strike the right balance between fashion and function.
