100 Sensational Summer Sandals

From Flip Flops with Storage Capacity to Pickle-Themed Shoes

— March 26, 2012 — Fashion
With the warm weather on the way, toes will be coming back out to play in some sensational summer sandals.

As a footwear product that never goes out of style, a good sandal is a fashion staple for the hot, sticky months. Keeping those tender tootsies cool over the course of the sunshine-infused months of summer has never been more fashionable, or functional.

Similar to many products these days, sandals now feature functions that extend beyond keeping one's feet off the bare ground. The classic warm weather footwear now features storage space and can be used to hold cup holders when not being worn.

With such a wide array of sensational summer sandals to choose from, this summer should be one where freshly pedicured little piggies everywhere can strut their stuff in style.
