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.

As soon as the temps start rising we tend to ditch our beloved booties and other cold-weather footwear for open-toed, beach-ready sandals. Since they go with just about anything—swimsuits, sundresses, jeans, shorts, you name it—it's safe to say we need more than just one pair for summertime. To help make your hunt a little easier, we've mapped out 15 sandal-happy shoe spots just in time to kick off summer.

From investment-worthy designer pairs at Elyse Walker to wallet-friendly options at Vamp Shoes, whatever your style or budget, there's a summer-ready pair of sandals waiting for you. Now all you need is a pedi. (We have a map for that, too).
