With the temperatures rising and our toes freshly painted, it's time to update our map of summer sandal shopping destinations. We've left off some of the big names from the traditional shoe map to focus on the places that really do open-toe right, whether it's a customized hand-crafted pair of leather gladiators made for stomping the sidewalk or sturdy flip-flops that'll take you all the way down on the A train to Rockaway Beach.
The stores listed here also cover a range of price points, in case you want to spend your summer wardrobe budget on happy hour margaritas (no judgement). Click below for 13 places that'll make your naked feet happy.
