As a self-professed flip-flop lover, it should come as no surprise that when it comes to footwear, I prefer practicality (not to mention walkability) over trendiness. I might not be reaching for the foam clogs each morning, but you won’t see me tottering around in five-inch Miu Mius anytime soon, either—however beautiful they may be. So until I have a car and driver to chaffeur me around, the sky-high pumps will be staying in the back of my closet.
But being a member of the working world does come with its share of responsibility when it comes to dressing—namely, that you look appropriate and wash your hair every few days. While I am a proponent of wearing ballet flats to work, sometimes a girl’s wardrobe begs for the little added oomph that comes with a heel.
Enter the low-heeled sandal: summer’s cutest comfortable footwear. First off (and most importantly in my book), a wedge or a block heel lends itself to an easy commute. For any big city-dwellers reading this, comfortable commuter shoes are priority number one. Plus, they have the added benefit of being a sandal, which is everyone’s desired shoe for the summertime heat.
