Enter Target, and their crazy shoe clearance sale.
Granted, these aren't leather, but they're a decent enough fake that they required absolutely zero breaking-in before a full day of wear. My usually delicate feet were totally fine after pounding the pavement downtown for a day of playing tourist in my own city. For that alone, these get a huge thumbs up. But it gets better: they were on clearance for $9.99... and their regular price still fits into the 20 under $20 category at $19.99. Solid, right? I'm sure they'll have fallen apart by next summer, but they've been a great quick fix for my sandal situation this summer!
I grabbed another pair of sandals from the same sale, slightly more dressy, but these have really knocked it out of the park. Brown and black, so they go with pretty much everything - so versatile and so easy!
For some reason they're not on sale online, but if your local Target has their shoe sale still going, these may very well be hidden in the racks!
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend! It's been raining all week here, but the sun has finally come out today - time to put these babies on and get going!
