Sandal Shop

Sandals are a summer staple. Wearing them with jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts, it's a nice way to enjoy the breeze between your toes (noone likes sweaty feet!!) and show off your pedicure!  But, finding the right pair to suit your style is not always easy, so here are some of our favorite picks for the season to give you a few ideas of what is out there:

The closed toe leather skimmers from Urban Outfitters are Saira's pick. They're a mix between ballet shoes and booties, but are perfect for strolling in the warm weather. Plus the warm cognac color looks great with a summer tan.

We love gladiator sandals, but some of the ones out there are too intimidating! This pair available at Delia's come in salmon and golden yellow as well, and are just so cute without  being too overbearing. You'll get some interesting tan lines, but isn't that what summer is all about?

The "Sawyer" sandal by Report is Jen's pick for a perfect and versatile sandal.  They are the ultimate girly sandal with the dainty straps and ruffled heel ad come in 3 great metallic colors.  They would be casual enough for a stroll on the boardwalk or a good game of mini-golf, but the metallic sheen makes them easily transitionable for a night out! 

Studded detailing is very "in" right now and we just adore these white, studded sandals by Mossimo.  They are delicate and feminine but the studs give it that little extra flare and attitude that we love. These would look great with a floaty floral skirt and tank and the price cannot be beat - they are just $14.99 at Target!

For a more delicate look, try these strappy gold sandals available at Swell. The straps tie up around the ankle, making you into an instant Greek goddess. Plus these sandals are 100% vegan, so you can look good while saving animals with every wear. 

And no one would be complete without a great pair of black sandals!  We recommend this pair of strappy gladiator sandals by Steve Madden. We said it before that sometimes gladiator sandals can be a little over the top, but we think these are simple and sexy enough for the every day Aphrodite, yet tough and supportive enough for the likes of Achilles.   

Happy trails!
