So you just can't stomach this Birkenstock revival, huh? And the onslaught of midi heels just isn't doing it? For those who say high heel or die, we've rounded up 20 ultra-sexy pairs of sandals that are tall, tall, tall. Even better, everything's under $250, including some major sale scores like a darling pair of red gradient See by Chloe sandals and a super strappy pair of 3.1 Phillip Lim patent heels.

Rather road test IRL? Here are the best stores in Boston, Chicago, DC, Dallas, Vegas, LA, Miami, NYC, Philly, and San Francisco for your summer kicks.
