Here's the fun part about sandal-and-pedicure season: When it comes to choosing a nail color, there are no rules. Want to clash a bright purple with an equally bright yellow shoe? Go for it — it's fun and appropriately summery. Rather stick to a clean neutral? Try a crisp white on your toes but pair with something more offbeat like Brother Vellie's ponyhair-and-recycled-tire style. Or are you a summer goth who can't imagine wearing a stitch of color? Then you'll want to wear Saint Laurent's studded gladiator with a matching gunmetal-gray polish. In honor of letting your feet live summer to its fullest, we've rounded up 50 our favorite flat sandals and paired them with the perfect (or perfectly imperfect) polish. Click ahead to get inspired for your next pedicure.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
