Matt Bernson's The Love Spike sandal serves major ferocity but with his renowned cushion soles. ($156; Harrison St. at Greenwich St.)
The buttery leather of Chloé's two-tone ankle-strap sandal is most definitely worth the splurge. ($525; Barneys, Madison Ave. at 61st St.)
Attention: Marni is on sale. We repeat: Marni is on sale. ($364; Saks Fifth Avenue, Fifth Ave. at 50th St.)
But if you simply can't break that commuting-flip-flop habit, you'll be pleased to know that Havaianas has opened a candy store of a pop-up shop for the summer. (Gansevoort St. between Washington and Greenwich sts.)
It doesn?t get much better than walking home on a breezy, 80-degree evening--unless after 30 blocks, the backs of your heels mildly resemble a crime scene.
Easy solution: Buy better shoes. Here are a few skin-saving tricks and some shockingly comfy brands (that do not include TOMS).
Check for padding Not all flats are created equal. Those paper-thin, stiff-as-a-board bottoms are in fact terrible for your arches, calves, lower back and general disposition. But cushioned soles don?t necessarily mean orthopedic booties. Get a load of the spikes on these Matt Bernson beauties ($156; Harrison St. at Greenwich St.) or the Alaïa-inspired caging from Gentle Souls ($185). Also, can we discuss the fact that these are Clarks ($80; Piperlime, Wooster and Prince sts.)?
Spring for better leather Buttery, supple and hands-down heavenly?are all adjectives that should immediately come to mind re: your straps. (Happiness is inversely proportional to Band-Aid budgets.) Just take vegetable-tanned leathers of Coclico, for example ($325; Mott and Prince sts.)--or perhaps a little friend named Chloé ($525; Barneys, Madison Ave. at 61st St.). You don?t have to twist our arm, er, ankle.
