I glanced at my feet yesterday, which was the first time I’d paid attention to them in ages, and two thoughts came to mind…
- Yay! Sandal season is coming.
- BOO! Sandal season in coming. (Note to self: buy a tube of exfoliating foot cream ASAP.)
Warm weather is right around the corner, which means that it’s time to free the feet, so, because I like to be prepared (and, also, because I don’t own any flat sandals that are comfortable), my number one sidekick/sous chef and I went to DSW yesterday.
Guess what? They have quite a few options for ladies who can’t wait to liberate their toes from the suffocating oppression of socks.
I went in specifically looking for options that aren’t sky-high heels, and I was blown away by all of the choices this season.
SO MANY FLATS!
Flat sandals with a platform base, in particular, are having a moment, and I’m here for it 100%. I love the idea of combining the comfort of flats with an extra couple inches of height.
First big trend: flat platform sandals with a cork base
This trend is a little like your traditional cork wedge heel, but with a flatter base.
