Sexy Sandals

This footwear is anything but pedestrian



Clogs, mules, and other slip-ons are a great way to explore the sandals trend.

It’s high time you march yourself into the nearest mani-pedi salon and do something about those feet. Summer is here, and you’re not in style without the latest sandals. Chic gladiators, hip lace-ups, and earthy Birkenstocks are trends that anyone can wear.

Blonde at the River carries an assortment of candy-colored flip-flops and jeweled sandals for her. Give foot fetishists a reason to swoon. 71800 Hwy. 111, Rancho Mirage. 760-836-3366. www.blondeattheriver.com

Restock your wardrobe at DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse. Slip into moccasins, mules, thongs, and more. Go ahead … pick up one of everything you like. 72399 Hwy. 111, Ste. D, Palm Desert. 760-340-3217. www.dsw.com

You’ve got pretty feet; now, show them. Cactus Flower Shoe Salon carries sandals in nearly every style for a bold demonstration of this season’s best. Strappy sandals, slingbacks, and slides look amazing when paired with maxi dresses or shorts. 73640 El Paseo #3 Palm Desert. 760-346-6223.

The hippies of the 1960s were known as much for popularizing Birkenstocks as they were for their politics and long hair. This year, hippies return in large numbers, thanks, in part, to festivals like Coachella and Burning Man. Flaunt your inner wild child with a trip to Birkenstock Comfort Shoes in Palm Springs. Discover sandals, clogs, and slip-ons for men, women, and children. You’ll love the feel of natural leather and organic cork as it hugs your soles. 138 S. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs. 760-323-1175. www.birkenstockusa.com
