Fact: There is no good way to end a pedicure. If you’re someone who frequents the service, you're no stranger to both waddling around in those incredibly awkward disposable sandals and feeling the defeat and regret that fills your body when you decide to risk putting your normal shoes back on and totally ruin your fresh polish job. Both options suck, and because the team over at uber-popular nail salon Olive & June agree, it came up with a solution.
The LA salon introduced the Saturday Sandals ($65) over the weekend — a sleek, low-maintenance, strappy shoe that can be tied in a million different ways (okay, like, a dozen different ways) to give the rest of the shoe a totally different look. Olive & June’s founder, Sarah Gibson Tuttle, teamed up with designer Charlotte Stone to bring the game-changing sandals to life, so not only do they make a ton of practical sense, they’re cute enough to wear in and out of the salon.
The sandals come in perfect warm-weather colors — tan, bone, black, blush, and an ivory-like pearl shade — and are made with soft nappa leather and some seriously soft memory foam padding. Plus, if you want to mix and match, you can grab different colored laces for just $10.
Tempted to try them out? The Saturday Sandals are available now online and at all three Olive & June locations (Beverly Hills, Pasadena, and Santa Monica).
