Abaca Mules

Abaca Mule Sandals

Mules are shoes that consist of no back constraints or support around the feet’s ankles. While mules are labeled as shoes because they cover the toes, many would use them as they would with sandals. Mules have been repurposed, which means that they are no longer used as boudoir shoes. Instead, they are being used for occasions in different locations. While the Ingrid Natural Abaca Mules are stylish and suitable for beach trips, they are not advisable to be used for walking on the sand. Nevertheless, they are comfortable for walking long distances with only half an inch heel.

Cross-Strapped Slides

Cross Strapped Slides

Similar to wide-strapped slides, cross-strapped slides flatter wide feet. The way the straps are overlapping one another conceals a portion of the foot that allows for some skin to show. Isabel Abacca is the perfect cross-strapped sandals for the beach. They come in a wheat color with golden brown soles.

Aside from that, another pair of sandals is Kaila. These slides take on a different style compared to cross straps. Instead of overlapping, the straps curve and attach to each other in the middle.

These two types of flat sandals blend well with your skin and the shade of the sand. Wear it on the way to the beach, on the sand, and back home. However, take note: the abaca material in the sandals is not meant to be soaked in water. To keep the quality of the sandals, avoid using it to walk near the shore.
