In summary, sandals are a light shoe with either an openwork upper or straps attaching the sole to the foot.

The distinction between sandals and other types of footwear can sometimes be a blurry line, the common understanding is that a sandal leaves all or most of the foot exposed.

Sandals are a type of footwear that is open, consisting of a sole held to the wearer's foot by straps going over the instep and around the ankle. Sandals can also have a heel.

Women typically wear sandals in warmer climates or during warmer parts of the year in order to keep their feet cool and dry.  However, they are worn for a wide assortment of reasons and occasions throughout the year.
