The Sandal Trend I'm Shopping to Ease Back Into Wearing Real Shoes

At this point, I think my feet are turning into the shape of a slipper—that's how much time I spend in them. When I have worn real shoes in recent history, they've usually been casual flats or sneakers. This year though, we're all hopeful that our lives will return to some sense of normalcy. But I imagine that our wardrobes won't completely go back to the way they were during the before times, and one of the ways in which that's likely to be the case is shoes.

My tolerance for uncomfortable shoes has certainly decreased over the past year, but I do kind of miss heels, believe it or not. They're pretty, and certain outfits just look better with heels. But instead of going from flat soles to four inches (not that I even own heels that high anymore), I'm easing into it with low-heeled sandals. I'm talking two inches on average. I've been on the hunt for the chicest pairs for myself, and I'm very happy to share my finds with you.

Keep scrolling to shop the best low-heeled sandals on the internet. Your feet may hate you at first, but eventually, they'll thank you.
