The Sandal Flats Concoction
As someone who doesn’t own a single pair of flats (they make my legs look stumpy), my flat summer footwear is pretty limited. Sneakers are good, but they can be a bit hot in this steamy city, and I don’t wear flip flops except while walking Finn. So, like I said, limited summer flats options.
Last Christmas in San Francisco, however, my friend Gillian came over to my house wearing the cutest nude sandal-meets-flats concoction (because that’s appropriate winter footwear in California). Thinking they were Margiela’s, I promptly did a bend-and-snap to get a closer look at those pretty little things. And then Gillian told me they were MaxStudio. Say whaaa?
Wham bam thank you ma’am I was on the computer buying these suckers in navy. They’ve since become my go-to summer footwear and I love how they’re not the typical gladiator sandal nor are they the classic ballet flat (they’re also under $100). They’re a great combination of the two and even my Mom is on board with them (and she hates sandals).
Kid tested, Mother approved.
