Yes, we know, it's hot and humid out there—especially now that our tropical summer is climbing to peak levels of outdoor discomfort. So your winterized high-tops and your suede Chelsea boots might not be the freshest footwear choices of the moment. Right now, you'd be better off with canvas plimsols, lightweight loafers, or any of the high-tech knit sneakers—anything that's breathable, really—to thwart the scourge of sweaty, smelly summer feet.

But if your feet have especially aggressive sweat glands and you're looking for something even more aerated, then you can consider venturing into the dangerous uncharted waters of wearing sandals—yes, sandals—in 2018.

Dad style has been going strong recently, and is slowly easing us into a full-blown normcore resurgence. These days, sandals are a valid style statement, provided that you wear them correctly. That generally means no jeans, no cargo shorts, and definitely—for the love of god, please—no socks. It also means picking out good sandals. Paul Smith's got you on the latter. The iconic British designer label's 'Formosa' webbing sandals are made with neoprene uppers, tonal webbing straps, and rubber trims. They're as lightweight and comfortable as sandals should be—but more importantly, they also look pretty cool. Check them out:

Unless you're Jesus or John Mayer, you will only ever hear the words "Hey man, cool sandals" twice or thrice in your life. Paul Smith can get you at least one of those.

The Paul Smith 'Formosa' webbing sandals are now available in Paul Smith Greenbelt 5 for the full retail price of P10,850.
