A man in sandals is as taboo as mom jeans, yet we love them dearly. It's something about discarding sneakers for something a bit more breathable that screams, "sexy and confident."

And let's face it, if Jay-Z can hang up his rapper-turned-executive cool for a pair of Island compatible sandals, so can you.

This season, trade in those fancy kicks for buttery leather sandals that were luxuriously crafted for a king. We promise you'll be glad you did.
