Reformation has been keeping one hell of a secret. Less than two months after they launched a permanent plus-size collection, the eco-conscious brand has fooled us again — and their latest venture might be their best one yet.

This morning, Reformation announced an 11-piece collection of… (drum roll please) sustainable footwear for us to fawn over all summer long. Before today, the closest we were to getting our hands on a pair of Ref shoes was through their limited capsule collection with By Far. But according to the brand’s founder and CEO, Yael Afalo, that collaboration was merely a stepping stone to today’s launch. “Footwear represents about 1/5 of the total environmental impact from the apparel industry, and nearly 1/4 of the climate impact,” she told Refinery29. “Shoes are also the #1 most requested item from our customers, so it really made sense as the next step in our mission to bring sustainable fashion to everyone.”

In order to ensure that this collection falls in line with Reformation’s sustainable mission, the brand used “a rigorous screening process to make sure all of their partner factories share Reformation’s values of sustainability, transparency and accountability,” Afalo says. But as we’ve learned since Ref launched 10 years ago, sustainability and style are hardly mutually exclusive.

So instead of taking the fast-fashion route, get yourself the perfect pair of guilt-free summer sandals from this newly launched collection. Ahead, shop the first 11 styles, starting at £99.

Did you hear? The flip-flop is back. Reformation have updated the thonged sandal look with slick black leather and a SS19 appropriate kitten heel. Ideal poolside and with a slip dress at the hotel bar.

In an ideal world, we would be wearing these simple leather sandals in Corsica itself. In reality it’ll be on a trip to Primrose Hill for a picnic (like the rest of London).

With a simple design and nude colour, these heeled sandals would make the perfect wedding day shoe that you can wear again and again.

If the ballet flat, a pointy toe mule and a pair of sliders had a baby, this is what it would look like. The dainty Belle flat is perfect for heel-phobes with summer weddings coming up. We’re loving how Ref styled them here, with an equally pretty floral co-ord.

Toe-ring detail? Lace up design? Woven, rope-like leather? The Jeanne Sandal ticks so many SS19 trend boxes.

Once dubbed an ‘ugly’ ’90s relic, espadrilles have experienced a huge renaissance over the last few seasons. As flats, Reformation’s Lily sandals make a refreshing change.

Fulfil your ’90s esque ‘naked’ strappy heel quota with these red hot sandals.

These strappy block-heel sandals would look just as good with a pastel short suit in the city, as they would with a sundress in the country.

For days when all you want to do is throw on your easiest sundress or comfiest jeans-and-t shirt combination.

For French girl-chic, wear with a slinky midi skirt, dainty square-neck blouse and simple gold jewellery, à la Jeanne Damas.
