The heeled scuba sandal is the primary product vehicle for our Water Babies trend. Look to chunky styles for day, perhaps in bonded or neoprene fabrications, or high-heeled sandals for a more glamorous take. The key details for scuba-styling includes curvy cutouts or colour-blocked panels, black piping and peep-toes, but consider zips with wetsuit-style pull tabs and mesh to add extra sporty touches, as at Prabal Gurung.
