Heading to the beach destination for a vacation? Do not forget to pack barefoot sandals. Yes, these are the next must-have accessories. As its name suggests, the accessory looks like a sandal, but is not. It is a sole-less shoe, more like a leg chain. These stunners are perfect for occasions when you can’t wear a sandal. What’s more? You can DIY. Bengaluru-based craftsperson Ishara, who makes the barefoot sandals, said, “I went to the Andamans recently and started making these sandals on a whim. Very soon, it became popular and I had a busy time on the beach. I generally use macrame patterns to make them, which does not require any needle. But you can use anything thread, shells, beads and crystals to make them.”
Junk-jewellery-maker Sonali Sarkar said, “In my recent trip to Ibiza, Spain, I saw that boho jewellery was the order of the day. What caught my eyes were barefoot sandals, which looked extremely stylish. I am happy to see it coming to India now. I would say style it with a pair of shorts and a nice flowy top.
