If you often feel that the simplest, most practical shoes—like office-appropriate heels and everyday semi-dressy sandals—are the hardest to find, we suggest you click over to the Burberry shoe sample sale over at Gilt for a strong selection of conservative-but-chic and ladylike pumps, boots, and sandals to get you through summer. We like: the patent Mary Jane, $149 (orig. $395) and the patent leather wedges, $129 (orig. $250).
