One of the reasons I’m so excited about warmer weather is because I want to give my feet some freedom. Honestly, for the first eighteen years of my life, I ran around mostly barefoot. I’m not trying to perpetuate some Southern stereotype about how the weather’s always warm, because we had crazy winters. Still, whenever it was nice enough or I could get away with it, I went barefoot. At school and during my day to day life, sandals were my saving grace – and they still are. Wearing sandals is the closest you can get to letting your feet go naked. Still, I know you can’t live in flip flops, but that’s all right, because these sexy pairs of sandals from Zappos will still give you lots of ventilation.

I’m not always a huge fan of wedges, but sometimes I run across a pair I really like. I’m surprised I don’t like them more, because I’m generally in favor of shoes that make me look taller but still provide plenty of support so I don’t completely lose my balance. These would definitely do it, mainly because I think the resulting arch would be gorgeous.
