Flats are so perfect for summer. And I'm definitely planning to buy a pair of gladiator sandals this season.

Funms-the rebirth said...

i love summer!!!!!!!!! i bought the colin stuart chandelier thong sandals cuz VS had an offer during the week
I hope u have embraced the gladiator trend now.....i want the Zanotti gladiators!!! lust!

Wanderlusting said...

FAVOURITE POST EVER! Lol.

Antik, Philosophi, Fendi, Siger Morrison, Costume National, I want them all SOOOO much!

I do have however, the metallic silver ones from Victoria's Secret, my complaint though is that they are cheaply made (duh) AND the size is small, medium, large and the small is still a tad too big for my feet. Oh well!

My goal was/is to have sandals of every colour this summer and I think I'm almost there :)

Dana said...

OMG! Those gladiators are just gorgeous!!

Delmy said...

I bought the gladiator sam edelman's last year. they're quite cute. I need a new pair though.

Caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

Wow! These are great:) Love all of these, esp. the studded ones:) I definitely have to buy myself a pair:)

Jennifer said...

Whoa some of those sandals made me gasp out loud. Especially the first two. And those jeweled ones...I must have a pair. Sigh.
And those wrap sandals look like so much fun!
Yeah, I need to start wearing flats more often. I'm only five feet tall so I tend to wear heels a lot. But yeah, flats would be way more comfortable to wear on days I have to walk a lot. :)

Savvy Mode SG said...

you are after my heart today CC. was just think about doing a summer shoe post.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

I love me some flat sandals and I've even adjusted to the gladiator trend (albeit in moderate-format) but I cannot get with the thong toe thing. It hurts!

dapper kid said...

These are so perfect for summer :) Those Anna Sui sandals are so beautiful, I love the detailing. And those Giuseppe for Balmain ones are fantastic!

lisa said...

I'm a huge fan of casual cool sandals for summer and there were some fabulous picks in this post. Great job as always, CC!

I'm so in love with all of them. ...although I have a pair of black ones that thickly wrap around my ankles and an older woman who used to work in the gallery with me walked in when I was wearing them and yelped WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOUR ANKLES!??! ...I was like...oh no ..they're my shoes. lol. your welcome for that long novel in your comment section .

Happy Friday!
