    hey all -

    I'm normally against sandals (or "mandels" if you druther), save (even though I know many here and those sartorially minded in general tend to frown on them) flip-flops/thongs. But I am going to a beach wedding in Cabo San Lucas soon and need appropriate footware. I'd prefer "dressy" leather flip-flops, but am open to suggestions on sandals as well. FWIW, my suit is a white/light light cream cotton suit (ugh, just a crappy fused suit, but didn't want to buy a one use white suit... though i did miss out last month on a NICE RLPL white linen blazer). I was thinking a lighter brown (caramel or there abouts) leather sandal, but hey I'm posting for suggestions. thanks.

    I have some nice caramel brown fisherman's sandals from Cole Haan. You might see what they have.

    diorshoe, is your name referring to christian? [​IMG]

    seriously, if the beach is clean enough i'd go barefoot. besides, leather sandals are not meant for beaches- sand and seawater can definitely ruin the leather.

    I have some Tommy Bahama sandals that are quite dressy, but I would try them on before buying, they're slightly narrow for me, as I have relatively wide feet, but would likely work for most people.

    i thought about that, but it was nixed by my friend. the thought of espadrilles has caught me though. i've been looking for a pair anyways.

    yeah, leather and sand and seawater is not a nice mix. that's one of the few reasons i wasn't looking for "quality" here (same as the suit). just don't wear enough to justify spending.

    (btw, yes, my handle is a reference to seoul, korea. i'm not from there, though i have some family still there. been one of my regular handles for almost 10 years now)

    thanks all for the suggestions.

    I have a pair of Merrel black leather sandals I blought last summer in Toronto for $100CAD. Very comfy, looks great, lining is like the wetsuit material.

    I believe they are called Miami.
