Summer Sandals

Sandal Scandal

As the scene on the sidewalks can attest, Manhattanites seem to be a bit confused about summer footwear. We've seen the loveliest outfit ruined by Havaiianas (we'll be nice and assume she was headed for a pedicure), the girl who thinks trendy gladiator sandals go with everything (they don't), and more than a few too-short skirts paired with too-high heels (still cringing from the panty flash). The dreaded maxi dress and pumps combo has made an appearance, and boots in 90+ heat are another baffling phenomenon. Why don't women seem to care? We understand that summer footwear should reflect the laid back, carefree spirit of the season, but we interpret that to mean swapping your skyscrapers for flat sandals, or using a dose of vivid color to punch up a neutral outfit. From t-straps to ankle wraps, there are surely better options for hitting the pavement than cheap plastic flip flops. We've picked out some styles we'd rather see.
