Hear us out: A new pair of designer shoes could be a great footwear investment and a reason to smile.
While there’s nothing wrong with rocking casual shoes (or constant loungewear) during these lazy days, opting for a pair of seriously stylish sandals every once in a while will help you remember more, well, normal times. You might even be inspired to put together an entire outfit again!
We’ve scoured our favorite retailers for strappy sandals, chic flats, luxe wedges, boots, booties and other shoes you’ll want to slip into. And, keeping in mind the current economy, we’ve included several designer pairs that are on sale right now. (The final touch? A fresh DIY pedicure.)
Below, the best designer shoes we have rounded up.
