We are finally getting out of the June Gloom in LA and it starting to feel like summer. The SOS team have been looking to upgrade our heeled summer sandal collection this sale season, which led to our discussion on what makes the perfect pair. We agreed that they need to possess one of the following qualities:
1. Heel height less than 3 inches;
2. Block heel;
3. Good coverage on the top of the feet.
1. Mid Heeled Sandals
We’ve always had a love-and-hate relationship with high heel shoes. While a pair of 4-inch pumps might make us stand a little taller and our strides a little wider, they are a pain to walk in and thus not the ideal summer shoes. We find these mid-heeled sandals, with barely-there straps, just as sexy.

2. Block Heeled Sandals
These block heeled sandals are always a safe choice when it comes to balancing functionality and aesthetics. They are just as easy to walk in as wedge sandals but they are less chunky and a lot more chic.

The extra coverage these mule sandals have over the top of your feet makes quite a big difference. These heeled sandals are much more walk-friendly thanks to the width of the band.
