From your Instagram feed to the shoe aisle at Target to your sister's closet, there's one sandal trend for summer that we're sure you'll be seeing everywhere this year: braided sandals. Shoe designers like Steve Madden, Marc Fisher, Vince Camuto, Dolce Vita, and more have all embraced the trend by putting their own spin on the braided sandal style. With each designer putting their own flair on the trend, there are plenty of braided styles to fit any summer occasion from pairing them with a swimsuit for a pool day to matching them with a wedding guest dress.

Whether you prefer a flat, a heel, or something in between, there is sure to be a braided-style sandal that you'll want to add to your footwear lineup for summer 2022.
