City Sandals Feature Image

Lately, city sandals have been popping up at every retailer I regularly visit, and perhaps as a result I couldn’t help but get hit with my own case of city sandal fever. While these block-heeled shoes may not do much to help my short stature, they’ll still look great, and more importantly, my feet will feel great in them.

Flat and otherwise comfortable footwear has had the fashion world abuzz ever since sneakers took the runway at the Chanel Haute Couture show. Read More…
