We all have that one friend. That friend who just oozes cool-ness. When he or she walks by, you hear downtown jazz music with a snare, a snap, and a crack!

Heat waves are rollin' on in. Nothin' but ice cold lemonade and a fan can cure those summertime blues. But like Lana Del Rey says, "Got that summertime sadness." To cheer up that heat stricken frown, grab


Ditch Those Summertime Blues With Our Cool and Comfy Sandals

Summer is coming! If you’re like me, you’re anxiously awaiting the 100 degree temperatures, armed with an arsenal of flip flops and ice cream sandwiches. If you’re not like me…well, you at least need some fun sandals to help keep your feet cool as you endure another season of blazing heat caused by that really bright yellow thing in the sky. To help you along (because I’m nice like that), I’ve found some pretty sweet things for you to do this summer, and some really sweet new kicks to wear while doing them.

1. Take a hike!


There’s nothing better than taking in the smell of trees, the beautiful sights of the great outdoors, and the sounds of the birds and other woodland creatures as you walk along the trails. And there’s nothing worse than sweaty feet and wet socks on a long hike. Okay, so getting eaten by a bear might be worse. But you won’t have to worry about bears or sweat when you strap on your Hi-Tec 40769 Women’s Waimea Falls Sandals and hit the trails.

It only looks like a friendly wave. In reality, he’s jealous of your fancy footwear. And hungry. Very, very hungry.

*Sandals not guaranteed to ward off bears. Please stay away from bears.

2. Pitch a tent!

Ahh, camping. Roasted hot dogs on the fire, spending the night under the stars, and all the s’mores you can eat with only a small fraction of the guilt. At night, you’ll probably want to lace up your most comfortable sneakers over a pair of warm wool socks, but during the day, you need a light and breezy sandal that’s both rugged and feminine.

Enter the Timberland Tree 8234R Women’s Earthkeepers Lola Bay Thong. With an extra strap to keep your flips from flopping off (and to make it harder for bears to steal them), these sandals will take you from the campsite to the lake in comfortable style.

3. Take to the seas(ide)!


So maybe the woods aren’t your thing–all those bugs, trees and don’t forget the bears that aren’t afraid of sandals. It can be quite scary. So how about a nice trip to the beach? The breeze on your back, the soothing sounds of the waves crashing against the shore, the sand burning your feet. And that’s why we’re here today…even on the beach, you need some protection for your footsies. How about the Carhartt WA069 Women’s Marquette Flip-Flops? Cute, comfortable, and they’ll protect you from those pesky sand demons.

4. Rock the backyard BBQs in style!

Of course, the great outdoors can’t always be so great, and, after all your backyard is 99.9999991% guaranteed to be bear-free. Treat your less fortunate, pool-less friends to a pool party and barbeque! You’ll be the hostess with the mostess when your guests see your fiery red Timberland Tree 8258R Women’s Earthkeepers Whittier Leather Wedge Sandals. Don’t have a pool? With these sandals, you don’t need one! Just show up to your swimming pool endowed neighbor’s house wearing these babies and they won’t be able to turn you down for a relaxing lounge by the pool.

5. Embrace your soccer mom style

If your summer is filled with grocery store trips and kids’ soccer games, you’ll need a fun and comfortable sandal that will keep you going and won’t make you feel like you spent the day stepping on pointy objects while running away from hungry bears. The Sanita 443684 Women’s Sangria Nikka Leather Open Back Sandal will do just that. The rocker bottom helps to propel the foot forward as you walk, making your stroll through the bread aisle more enjoyable. The best part about spending your summer cheering on the Tigers? They already beat the Bears.
