When we're buying flimsy summer shoes, we like to be sure that they're well made and designed with comfort in mind to avoid those dreaded summer blisters. The Natural Shoe Store is the ideal place to shop for such footwear, as the ethos behind the store is that every pair of shoes should be as comfortable as walking barefoot on a beach.

Fortunately, the styles in stock at the moment are not only supremely comfy, but made to be stylish, too. Komodo is a company from Bali and Kathmandu -- both locations where sandals have been worn since time immemorial -- and we adore their flat gladiator sandals. Simple, stylish and with a subtle gold leaf pattern, they're ideal for balmy summer days. They're also exceptional value for money.
