When it comes to shoes, there are several types that will carry you through your days. And no matter what, the shoes you wear can have a big impact both in terms of form and function.

One such shoe style is the gold leather sandal. Given the chance, it will pull together your outfit for your friend’s barbecue, style up your basic jeans and T-shirt for your next run to the post office and perhaps even save you at the next wedding party you attend, when you need to switch out of your heels to dance comfortably.

In a nutshell, the gold leather sandal is a wardrobe superhero. Read on to learn who makes the best ones and make an investment you won’t regret.



If you fancy yourself a stiletto, consider Schutz. For those who aren’t familiar with the brand: it’s the affordable line of world-renowned shoe designer Alexander Birman that offers everything style you could imagine, from classic pumps to strappy flat sandals in a wide range of colors and finishes, including several variations of gold.

PRICE RANGE: $200 TO $750

Sarah Flint

Sarah Flint is well known for her ability to design understated, elegant shoes that don’t sacrifice comfort or foot health. The Perfect Block Sandal 90 is great for its low block heel, extra padding, and wide toe box—features that podiatrists say, on their own, are paramount to comfort in any pair of shoes. When combined into one shoe, they create the ultimate comfortable and stylish gold leather heels.

Stuart Weitzman

Stuart Weitzman’s gold leather sandals are simple yet stylish ad infinitum. Generally, I love the designer’s mix of streamlined silhouettes and gold finishes, which women can team with billowy dresses, prim midi skirts, and more.

PRICE RANGE: $750 TO $1,500

Alexandre Birman

Alexandre Birman mixes influences and silhouettes for shoes and boots that could tie any look together; his gold leather sandals are no exception. His Clarita sandals, a strappy, stiletto style that comes together at the ankle, is so classic. It also comes in a lower block heel version, should you be looking for less height and more stability.

Jimmy Choo

To say the offerings from premium retailer Jimmy Choo are decadent wouldn’t be an understatement. But oh my, they’re so irresistible. Its strappy gold sandal styles are no exception. Be it the Diosa Sandal 85 in gold nappa leather or the chunky, ’70s-inspired Heloise 120 heel, you’re bound to look super chic—each style is on-trend and crafted with the best materials.

Manolo Blahnik

Carrie Bradshaw may have made Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi pumps a style for the ages, but there’s also a case for shaking things up with another stellar design from the label. If you’re a sucker for a strappy style, you might just fall in love with the Chastora ankle-tie sandals. Meanwhile, mule-lovers can choose from a variety of options, such as the Susa or Haribalmu slide sandals.


A great pair of gold sandals is the thing that unfailingly sets, or perfects, your look. Unlike your latest going out top or dress-of-the-moment, this shoe style can take you the distance by staying with you long after trends have come and gone. These high-quality picks are distinctive, as they’ll make it through the wear and tear that would destroy their lesser counterparts.

Style-wise, consider your personal taste and lifestyle needs. While you can’t go wrong with a simple slide, a more dramatic pair can really make a summer look stand out. So long as it’s well-made and versatile, whichever pair you choose will be a smart purchase you’re not ever likely to second-guess.

As always, these are just guidelines to make an informed purchase. With over 20 years in the fashion industry, Esquivel takes pride in being a valuable resource for shoppers.
