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.

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.
