Best Bet: Padma Wedge

When it comes to spring sandals, the challenge is finding that happy medium between high-end, guilt-inducing splurges and inexpensive knockoffs that will give you blisters before you reach the subway. Brit brand AllSaints is in the midst of a half-off sale, including these leg-lengthening lamb-leather wedges. The calf-hair heel adds an unexpected, understated design detail, while the wide leather ankle cuff and solid wedge make them relatively city-friendly.

Padma wedge, $125 (originally $250) at AllSaints or online.
