Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Although LA's blessed with year-round tees-and-shorts weather, now's a particularly good time to assess your open-toe footwear sitch. (Summer will be here before we know it.)

Unsurprisingly, the City of Angels's shopping scene is filled with endless options for sandals, so we've rounded up ten great stores for your mid-spring restock. Check them out in A to Z order below and give us a shout in the comments if we missed your favorites.
