3 Cross Over Sandals To Wear This Season

by jennine on May 17, 2011

Woah, now there’s a post title to bring to a speech therapist. Anyway… I love sandals, so much that part of me thinks I was born in California so I wouldn’t have to wear whole shoes until adulthood. Every year I agonize over which pair of sandals to invest in for the staple shoe of the season. It kind of feels like choosing a sacrificial virgin, because I’ll probably wear those sandals until they fall apart.  Yes, I buy shoes to keep and shoes to wear to smithereens. While gladiator sandals have fallen into the category of ‘that shoe is so 2007′ (and the Lita is sure to follow any second now). Other strappy sandals are making their way to the shelves.

I’ve been noticing they wide strap cross over sandal around the shops these days. Perhaps they’re the best of both worlds, substantial enough to last more than a few seasons yet provide all the benefits of regular sandals. The ones above by A DETACHER are the most brilliant emerald green suede. Even though they’re not what I normally go for, I instantly wanted to try them on. Strangely, they had all the elements I need, the statement quality of the color combined with a sensible heel. They are just simply gorgeous.

Pardon the Instagram photo…I had found these Proenza Schouler cross over sandals at Opening Ceremony, they don’t allow photos, so I had to be all stealthy. Anyway, these heels are quite possibly the hottest heels I’ve ever tried on, bar none. From the corset ankle strap with the laser upper and the embossed wide straps crossing over the toes. And the heels, so high. Now only if I could justify spending $1000 on a pair of heels. One day right? Finally, a more sensible wedge sandal by Cynthia Vincent, at $295 the price is also a good deal. I love the laser cut straps and the wooden wedge just enough to give a lift and still be comfortable enough to wear every day. I’m actually thinking of getting these because they’re just right.

Spread the Love!

I really like the black ones. The cutout designs are very unique and I think will go with pretty much anything in my closet! :-)

That emerald green is really eye-catching and I like the thick crossover straps which gives them substance and a look of comfort and practicality while still being stylish.
