Ah, yes, sandal season is here. Time to break out your favorite polish and get those pedicures ready! Or, you could just grab a pair of actually affordable sandals that cover your toes. I’ll try to figure out super stealth ways to cover my feet when I don’t have the time (or let’s be real, the funds) for a pedicure, and closed toe sandals are the best lazy girl hack for making feet look great.
Although I love all sorts of summery sandals, closed toe sandals that cover your feet have become life savers for days when I’m just not in the mood to throw on a last-minute coat of nail polish. That's not to say you always need freshly pedicured toes to go out (you definitely don't), but sometimes, you're really just not into showing a lot of foot. And that's okay, too.
Whether you want a strategically strappy pair that covers all the right corners or go for a classic closed toe espadrille sandal, great sandals for shy feet do exist. To find the best pair of closed toe sandals you can actually afford, read on. Trust me, they’ll save your morning when you can’t afford a pedicure or just don’t feel like showing your toes.
