The gummy-soled sandal trend is on the rise. Funky, colorful and, most importantly, comfortable, we can't wait to add this shoe back into our summer wardrobes.

There's no denying that '00s styles are having a major comeback this year: just look at the proliferation of translucent, frameless sunniesJuicy suits and – dare we say it? – Uggs. The next logical conclusion as warmer weather approaches is the stacked, squishy sandals of our childhood dreams, and we've already started spotting them for sale at places like Zara, so you know it's official. 

If you need any more reason to embrace this throwback look, during SS17 Fashion Week we also saw Prada unveil a pair of pink, rubbery platform sandals that erred on Tevas, while Miu Miu treated us to sky-high red and blue designs that would do the Spice Girls proud. 

Whether you're in need of a summer shoe with a little more height (and a more practicality) than a faux-fur pool slide, or you're looking to channel your fave celeb circa 2003 (we're looking at you and your platform flip flops, Britney), this summer footwear trend is the way to go.

Pair them with a your cutest romper for a music festival, or your go-to bathing suit Spring Break – there's no wrong way to embrace this '00s trend.
