Top 10 Summer Sandals


Trends – what an exasperating concept. This year, it’s mules; last year, I can’t even remember; and in 2008, it was Crocs. Each season beckons a new trend, and it takes our wallets along for the ride.

However, here at Downtown, we know the secret to staying stylish during these sweltering months without conforming to a homogenous mindset, and it’s neither culottes nor mules.

It’s sandals.

Make your closet and your wallet happy by slipping on our top 10 picks for the best flat sandals under $100.
