The other day I found myself lustfully eyeing another woman's footwear. I know, it's weird, but this actually happens a lot. I can't remember the rest of her outfit, but I can picture her strappy gold and silver sandals. I loved 'em! Since then, I've been spotting more people wearing shiny summer shoes, and you know what? A metallic sandal adds a pretty punch to even the most casual of outfits.

Now, I'm on the hunt for a pair for myself. Here are six of the cutest options I found (that I can actually afford). The only problem is ... I want them all!
