Splurge vs. Steal: Summer Sandals

Looking to perk up your summer-shoe collection? Fashion forecasters are calling for lots of metallics, woven leather, and gladiator-styles. Here are two on-trend choices—one high-end and one bargain.

Splurge: Cynthia Vincent Coco
$250, piperlime.com

Los Angeles-based designer Cynthia Vincent created this sturdy pair of sandals. They hit all the major summer trends: Metallic? Check. Woven? Check. The straps are 100 percent leather, and the shoe features a two-buckle closure around the ankle for extra support. Also available in teal.
Steal: Union Bay Valencia Sandal
$24.95, dsw.com

Looking for a more wallet-friendly option? This bronze sandal from DSW is a close match—and a steal at more than 90 percent off. You’re sacrificing leather—this shoe is made from a synthetic material—but the shape and style are exactly right. And instead of buckles, this sandal has a cute zipper to keep it in place. Also available in pewter.
