It seems like not that long ago that Tory Burch was famous for her Reva flats and not a whole lot else (shoe-wise, of course). Once everyone on the planet had a pair, they sort of fell out of favor and fashionistas moved on to the next big shoe, as they always do. Since then, however, a funny thing has happened – Burch has diversified her shoe and accessory offerings and come out with some shoes that are straight-up awesome in ways that even Reva naysayers are forced to acknowledge.
The Tory Burch Geoff High Heeled Sandals are my current favorite. Not only do they not break the bank, but the combination of textures and subtly different colors looks way more expensive than it is. These are the kind of quasi-dressy summer sandals that every girl needs in her closet, and I doubt you’ll find a better pair in this price point.
Mixing textures can get tricky, but the woven, (embossed) exotic and metallic materials that you see here all work together because they have similar types of color variation. The metallic leather is used in just the right amount, providing an accent to the rest of the shoe without taking over and making it too glitzy to wear to a casual dinner on a warm night. These sandals strike just the right note – high-end but not too haute for everyday use. Buy through ShopBop for $325.
