Summer's here! Time to get your feet ready to come out of hiding and meet the world! That means a pedicure and some totally sweet sandals! Sometimes unfortunately that also means some seriously blistered toes. For verily, summer shoes were not built for comfort. By and large, they were created for cuteness. My tender tootsies can testify.
But fret not! There is a solution. You can have the cuteness of summer footwear without any of the agony! You just have to know what you're looking for. Go for almost-flat shoes or sandals. You don't want them to have zero support, a little heel will help stabilize you and keep your legs and feet from feeling tired. I also suggest, whenever possible, wide straps -- the wider, the better!
