The boogie sandal is not only the perfect transitional shoe (be it from winter to spring, or day to night), but also the most striking way to stay stable on your toes. Though dainty little ankle straps are nice and pretty, most days you want something more supportive, and with the cool factor these chunkier options provide, there’s just no reason to say no.
