with woven gold straps that weave up the center of your foot and soft,

traditional flops is a v-shaped toe strap—though here they’re studded
with tiny dots of gold.
No, the gold isn’t recycled, and yes, these sandals are leather, so
vegan readers may want to click away now. But despite the fact that

And these collections are so gorgeous you might want to buy in bulk
yourself. Aside from the iconic Peace Sandal and the aforementioned
Minx, they’ve got flats, wedges, kitten heels and a stiletto
appropriately named Vixen. All designed to take you from the beach to
the boardroom, without even having to change your shoes.
