It’s kind of surprising that the gladiator sandal has remained trendy for going on three summers now. But, honestly, the look isn’t for everyone. Avon‘s Mod Fever Patent Sandal bridges the divide between strap-happy gladiators and simple thong sandals, a staple in most women’s closets. The circles add subtle flair and the tiny heel gives the right amount of height for elongating the leg while still being stroll-worthy. Plus, the patent leather-like material means a sudden downpour won’t ruin the shoes. Now that’s definitely a happy holiday!
When I lived at home, my mom made us — and our confused friends — wash our feet in the sink before entering the house proper during the summer. In sandal weather, she could often be heard admonishing us not to “drag our street feet into the house!” As a result, I’m flexible and balanced enough to stand on one leg while the other is in the sink and consider myself an expert at warding off what I like to call “hobo feet.” Click through for tips for keeping your feet smooth and pretty, even as summer sandal dirt threatens to make them filthy and dry.

Do you like water, shoes, and looking good? If so, hot damn, have we got the shoes for you. Well, actually, TOMS has the shoes for you. Their new design collaboration with charity: water, a non-profit that builds clean wells in communities that need them, has turned up a couple pairs of rather adorable kicks. The blue pair is modeled to resemble waves, while the gray — our favorite! — is called The Map Shoe for obvious reasons. Both are made of sustainable materials and the proceeds go towards building a well. They’re $58 each and will be available exclusively at TOMS.com for a limited time. [Nitrolicious] Keep reading »
In case you’re planning on dressing up as everyone’s favorite excessively tanned “Jersey Shore” diva for Halloween, you might want to buy your shoes before October comes around, because Steve Madden just released a brand-new pair of heels named the Snookie (yeah, Steve added an E, although apparently there always was supposed to be one?). Appropriately, the 5.5″ heels are full of sparkle, provide a peep-toe for displaying perfectly manicured feet, and even show off a bit of toe cleavage. SteveMadden.com promises that by wearing the shoe, “you’ll never be a wallflower at the club,” though if you’re anything like the real-life Snooki, we’re sure you don’t need to rely on shoes to stand out. The Snookie heels come in black glitter, multi-colored glitter, and gold glitter, and retail for $109.95, but the most important detail to note is the platform, ’cause you know the teeny tiny reality star can always use a few extra inches of height.
