Summer Sandal TrendsSandals are a summertime staple, and the breeziest shoes a woman can wear when the temps soar. From flat sandals glammed up for city streets, to towering wedge sandals and sexy stilettos that hit the style heights, we point out the perfect pairs.
Athletic Sandals: Sporty Spice
While footwear is frequently all about fashion, there are some occasions when you may want to kick it wild-style. Hiking somewhere hot? If the terrain isn't terribly tough, a pair of solid athletic sandals provides a freer feel than your normal heavy hiking boots. Expecting water hazards or just a day exploring tide pools? There's a pair for that, too, crafted to quickly wick away moisture and keep things fresh with antimicrobial materials. Of course, a cute pair of lightweight Teva thong sandals will get you around town on weekend errands very nicely, while more elaborate sandals from the likes of Keen and Columbia Sportswear help protect on less urban jaunts with reinforced straps, thick rubber soles and water-resistant leather.
