16 Perfect Reasons to Strut Through Summer in Bright, Statement Sandals
You'll be walking on sunshine all summer long.
How long have we been stuck in our ugly shoe rut? You know what I’m talking about, sensible be-buckled sandals with good arch support, contoured footbeds, roomy toe boxes and other buzz words extolled by the style-resistant podiatry set that scream IDGAF!
I love ‘em, too, but there’s also something called TMOAGT (too much of a good thing, friends), a doctrine to which I am a devoted subscriber. It’s all about balance after all — there can be no yin if there is no yang. Yes, say goodbye to flat and drab and hello to fun and fab! Your summer is going to be positively bursting with color, joie de vivre and, oh yeah, rarified height (so remember to duck when you’re passing under doorways, just a tip). As Burton Cummings once sang, stand tall.
