Best Bet: Vilma Sandals


In the summertime, grimy city streets are uninviting to shoes that weather easily. These Vilma sandals from Danish brand Friis Company age gracefully, looking just as cool with a little wear, while the rubber sole provides traction for running around town. Plus, the bluish-grey hue can pair with more of your wardrobe than brown or black footwear. Go monochrome by sporting them with a denim getup or contrast with something a little more feminine, like a flowy, floral dress.
