Introducing the City Sandal2019-04-30
Later sunsets, warm breezes, sandals—summer is right around the corner. It’s with visions of sunny days ahead that we introduce our newest silhouette: The City Sandal. We combined the very best design details of other favorites with our signature plush padding and double-strap sandal construction to create a heel that’s as elegant as it is comfortable.
The 2.5-inch block heel is the same beloved one you adore in The Heel. Tall enough to give you a lift, but not so high as to become uncomfortable, it’s a measurement we've developed through thoughtful design research and extensive wear-testing. The block heel, ideal for distributing weight, helps keep our shoes super walkable too.
The x-strap at the front should also look familiar—It’s the signature cut of The Sandal, our versatile flat slide. We knew we had to borrow from this fan-favorite since the width and placement of the straps create a fit that flexes and molds beautifully with wear. As they say, if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.
It’s not an accident that The City Sandal’s arrival happily coincides with the season’s major social swirl (after all, most everything we create here is in response to something we needed in our own lives). Just in time for weddings, showers, and getaways, we consider this the perfect heel for just about everything.
The trio of neutrals we’re launching with—black, rose, and platinum—provide a match for anything in your closet. And if you’re looking for the perfect shoe to spice up a little white dress for a long weekend, we’ve got you covered: A poppy red suede will be available shortly.
At Margaux HQ, we’re firm believers that a woman is never one-dimensional—and neither are her shoes. We made sure The City Sandal was versatile enough for both work and play as we considered all aspects of its design. From the heel to the ankle strap to the range of hues, it's the summertime essential you've been dreaming of.
