STEP INTO SUMMER
with sandals you’ll want to wear (and actually can!) well into the fall. These seven locally sourced options are the perfect day-to-night pairs, meaning you can wear them to the office and then out on the town. Or, maybe you’re traveling and would rather spare some room for more clothing: Take a couple of pairs you know will be great companion pieces to that flowy cocktail dress and that classic white tee and jeans. Whether you prefer a chunky, kitten, or no heel at all—or you just can’t kick your beloved Birkenstocks to the curb—these are the coolest sandals of this and the next season.
