I don't like feet. Feet are weird and gross.
So when it comes time to wear open-toed shoes, I opt for something that offers a little more coverage rather than less. I have been eyeing Loeffler Randall's gladiator sandals for awhile now, mostly because I love how they come across as seriously fancy shoes, but have a heel height of just 2.75 inches — perfect for an editor who spends her day running around the city. Add to that a sturdy ankle strap and a color that goes with everything, and you have one very practical summer sandal.
Loeffler Randall gladiator sandals, $350, available at Neiman Marcus.
