I really want a new pair of Burberry boots or Dolce wedges but I have to be a grown up for now. Plus, if you’ve seen my shoe closet I can make absolutely no argument for the need of new shoes. That aside, fashion, like good food, isn’t about what we need but what we want. Thanks to the completely different nature of the fashion business over the last decade, cheap shoes are no longer “cheap shoes.” Often they feel and look like their expensive flush cousins (cushioned soles included). Below are some killer summer options under $100 and even a few under $50.
