15 pairs of awesome, beat-the-heat cutout shoes
Olympia cutout loafer
Because that’s not the patent leather brogues I wore all winter (too hot now) or the barely-there sandals I wear to the beach (too casual). And sometimes even when I find a fancy sandal in those bins (seemingly a good problem-solver), I just don’t want to wear them until I get a pedicure. Cutout shoes are the perfect compromise, promising to keep my foot cool and (mostly) covered-up. I definitely need a pair, and you probably do too.
