LifestyleStyle 12 pairs of black sandals you'll need to walk around NYC this summer By MELISSA KRAVITZ Updated June 5, 2015 3:12 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email Walking around the city in the summer can be brutal. Bubbling garbage goo, hot sidewalks and all that condensation dripping off your iced coffee can make your toes pretty vulnerable to disgustingness. Pair that with the discomfort of oh so many sandals and summer can be rough for even the best pedicured of feet. On those hot, summer city days, you're going to want a good pair of sandals to walk the town in -- even if it's just from your apartment to the air conditioned subway. While summer may be a time for bright colors, we all know New Yorkers wear black. At least, to hide the sidewalk stains. Here are some of our top picks for comfort and style!
