Last week my tendonitis nearly resurfaced because of too much obsessive sandal shopping online. There’s a plethora of choices this season, from fisherman styles to gladiators to Sally Draper looks to wedges, and, and, and, and…now you’ve got so many tabs open you’re starting to sweat.
To keep things in perspective — and in budget — I’ve limited myself to checking a few sites and ignoring all the rest. No ShopStyle search engine browsing for this shopping task. Here are my favorites for sandal and spring bootie shopping this year:
Zappos: Completely overwhelming inventory, but the ability to narrow choices down by color, size and other qualifications helps me shop without needing a cocktail.
Free People: Great for laid-back and rocker-chic sandal fixes. Sizes run out fairly quickly, but at least once you’ve picked out a pair you like, then you can jump on ShopStyle for a more edited (sane) experience to find your size elsewhere on the web.
DSW: Customer reviews are a big plus, as are the cheaper prices!
Endless: Look for free shipping and other deals frequently offered by Endless.com, a veritable sandal Mecca come spring and summer.
Lori’s Shoes: Adorable sandals and summer shoes for all style types, especially good for finding comfortable, simple looks with a twist. Fabulous brands, too.
