It is not yet Spring in NYC, but I am already creating my spring slash summer sandal wish list as I DESPERATELY wait for Spring and Summer to arrive. Here they are (and obviously I have a type of sandal that I like to wear….):
1. Birkenstocks x Il Dolce Far Niente
Don’t you love? I actually bought these a month ago as they sell out very quickly and I knew I had to rush to get them. I know that I will wear them everyday all day.
2. Prada Sport Sandals
A little bit of a platform, a lot of sportiness. I continue to love the teva look and will wear it all summer with dresses, skirts, and shorts. A versatile and practical shoe!
3. Vans Two Strap Slides
Still love the checkered slide but updating my one strap slides with these guys. Don’t you love? So excited for them!
4. Gianvito Rossi Raffia Stacked Heels
Truth be told, in the summer I don’t wear many heels, but I am in love with this shoe. I only like stacked heels these days and these are perfection.
5. Arizona Love Trekky
I wore these shoes every. single. day. So much, that I went through three of them because I would hike, bike, and basically sleep in them. I have already written about them (last summer), but I realize I can’t live without these shoes so wanted to include them.
Any sandals you are loving for the Spring/ Summer? Share with me as I would love to hear! In the meantime, happy weekend! February is almost here which means Summer is around the corner! 🙂
One of my favorite purchases from my recent trip to Paris was a pair of Boho Chic sandals. Peruvian ribbon, Italian leather, French company….makes sense, right? I am so happy I discovered Nupie . They are colorful (at Bon Marche, the sandals were offered in three different color ways and I wanted all three), comfortable, practical, and unique. I love how the ribbon is distinctively Peruvian (and made in Peru) and that the soles are high quality leather Italian so they feel like well made classic sandals. I can’t wait to wear them all summer long.
I chose the green pair but was SO close to buying the pink one. But I liked them just as much the blue pair….ahhhh the options!
Last summer, I splurged on Chanel Tevas — and I wore them all day every day. They made me so happy because they were the perfect mixture of how I see myself: half city girl, half hippy chick. That said, I never wanted to hike in them because although they are technically tevas, they still are Chanel and are not hiking worthy. So last month when a friend introduced me to Arizona Love tevas, I fell in love AGAIN and knew I had to buy two pairs immediately. Arizona Love tevas are a true combination of uniqueness and practicality. A little bit of flair and a whole lot of comfort. LOVE LOVE LOVE them.
My issue was that I couldn’t decide on just one, so I had to buy two. But knowing me and my summer lifestyle, I will get use out of both of them.
Ladies, take a look at my new sandals. I get happy just LOOKING at them. They are bright, fun, flamboyant, colorful, special, unique, and simply happy.
Party on my feet!
High summer is here, so grab your sandals and get ready to dance the night away! The flat traditional Spanish sandal is my footwear of choice these days. They are as comfortable as Birkenstocks, yet more sophisticated and subtle. Easy to slip on and off, cozy for your feet to walk around in, and stylish to wear with any outfit.
These Spanish flat sandals are created by the NY line, Plomo, although a lot of different brands sell very similar versions.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, summer is ALMOST over, but we still have another full month of guaranteed sunny and hot weather. So it is never too late to buy some sandals. Truth be told, these sandals are worth buying any season because they will last forever; not just for this summer but for many to come.
Jutta Neumann Sandals.
Jutta Neumann has been creating hand made leather goods in New York since the mid 80s, and opened her own studio and storefront in the East Village in 1994. She makes sandals, handbags, belts, and jewelry. All of them are beautifully crafted and unique, but her sandals in particular are amazing. Not only are they good looking shoes, but they are so uber comfortable that you feel like you are wearing orthodics. They are the perfect substitute for birkenstocks (you know you love them) and flip flops (best shoes ever with no support whatsoever, though).
Neumann’s work is featured regularly in Vogue, Elle, Marie-Claire, Mademoiselle, Self, W and other national and international publications. Her shoes are the great combination of comfort and style. She sells the sandals (along with everything else) at her store on 355 East 4th Street in NYC, as well as online and even at gimmeshoes.com.
All of her styles are classic, good looking, and functional. But I am most in love with her Tony Sandal, which comes in 9 different colors.
Up close and personal with the Tony Sandals.
I have feet problems and my arch needs extra support, so most sandals are not comfortable because of a lack of support. These sandals have a ton of support and are perfect for us old ladies with feet problems.
