The Most Wanted Kappa Sandals
Kappa Adam Slides
These are the real mainstays in the brand’s collections. More than just a poolside essential, these summer sandals have been working their way into daytime looks too. Part of the reason is their comfortable contoured footbeds and easy slip-on design, and the other reason is simply because they look utterly cool. Their simple yet iconic design emblazoned with the Omini logo is enough to elevate a classic shorts-and-tee look.
Kappa Matese Slides
The Matese slides feature the same comfortable fit and shape of the Adam slides, yet have a slightly more elevated look with their textured stripe upper. Expect classic shades, like black, white and navy blue, as well as pops of print and bright color.
Kappa Banda Mitel Sandals
Kappa’s Banda Mitel sandal serves up a 90s-inspired look and comfy wear all in one shoe. The unisex design is crafted from durable techno fabric, which sits on a chunky rubber sole. Prioritising both style and functionality, the cool strapped design is complemented by a cleated sole, making them perfect for warm-weather adventures.
The Men’s Kappa Sandals Sizing Guide
Kappa sandals come in unisex sizing and run from a US size 4 to a size 13. As the brand is European, sizes tend to come up slightly slimmer than what you might be used to. Therefore, you may need to go up one size. We’ve detailed size conversions in the chart below, so you can find the right fit.
Depending on the retailer, you may need to convert your size from European to US sizing. So, if you usually wear a US size 8, you will need to select your shoe in a European size 40.5.
- Are Kappa sandals comfortable?
Kappa slides are designed with rubber contoured footbeds, giving you a spongy underfoot feeling that’s shaped to your feet. Many feature thick soles too, which helps to reduce pressure on the feet when walking.
- How should I style my Kappa slides?
The new generation of slides go way beyond the preserve of the pool or beach––and Kappa is showing us how. Fashion-forward designs, like the Banda Mitel, add statement street-style edge to turn-up trousers and a simple T-shirt. If vacation outfitting is your priority, try them with shorts and a breezy linen shirt.
- What is the Kappa logo?
Kappa’s ‘Omini’ logo is an outline of a man and woman sitting back to back. It is said to represent and support equality between the sexes. It appears on everything from the brand’s track jackets and pants to hats, T-shirts and sandals.
