Recommended Buying Guides
As the winter snow melts, and it blossoms into spring, it can only mean one thing: sandal season! No more keeping your little piggies cramped up in closed-toed shoes. It's also time to start getting pedicures. Sandal wearers should own a few pair of basic neutral colors such as black, brown, and tan to match nearly everything in the closet. Some prefer to go bold and audacious with vivid hues, prints, and designs. A brightly colored or patterned pair of sandals can function as the accent piece to your look. Flats and flip-flops are the two most common types of sandals. Flip-flops, sometimes called thongs, typically have a strap that fits between the first two toes. Flats typically have straps around the back of the heel and other supports that secure the sole to the foot. These two styles are great for beach and casual wear; however, many offices do not allow employees to wear these to work. When many people think of sandals, they think of flats or flip-flops, but for women, there are so many more options. Need a lift? Consider getting a pair of sandals with a raised foot bed. Wedges and platforms can give you anywhere from less than an inch to as high as 6 inches. Picking out the right height is all about personal preference, and of course comfort. Platforms refer to any thick-soled sandals that are comparatively even in height from heel to toe. Think of them as flats on stilts. Wedges are similar to platforms, and their main difference is the heel on wedges is significantly higher than the toes. No matter if you need something for the beach or a night on the town, the right pair of sandals makes all the difference.
