I see a few categories of sandals popping up this summer. As predicted from my trip to Italy last year, I knew flat slides would be in. Perfect to throw on with shorts. Gladiators are still around. Relatively new to the scene: block heels. We saw them last year but they seem to be more mainstream now. Finally, you always need a nice stiletto for that killer dress, elegant event, or a night on the town with the girls.
