    Promising review: "Jelly sandals (those clear plastic, glittery shoes) were all the rage when I was a little girl in the '90s. Every single girl I know had them, but I never owned a pair because my mom thought they looked tacky and that they were just a fad that would fade quickly. Well, she was right about that, but it still crushed me and a part of me has always yearned for those sandals. Now as a 30-year-old, I finally have them and they are gorgeous! Not to mention shockingly comfy! They fit my feet like a glove and are very flexible. Though I’ve only walked in them for about an hour around the house so far, they seem like they will be super comfortable compared to almost all other flats. The little girl inside of me is so elated! Will likely be buying another pair in a different color." —Crystal

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in four styles).

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this shoe. The block heel is very comfortable, and the front strap is loose enough for my wide feet. The scalloped strap does not dig into your foot.

    Promising review: "Love these!! I got lucky, they fit perfectly right out the box, and the backs don't scrape against my ankle. It comes with two sets of laces, which are a liiittle thin, but that's my only complaint (mainly because I have cats that like to chew laces so I have to hide all my shoes, but obv that's not the case for everybody). I'd say the colors are spot-on, too — a nice peachy/pinky/orange like actual watermelons." —Angie

    26. Or a pair of whimsical scented sandals to serve as the ~cherry on top~ of your fave summer outfit.

    28. Or glamorous sneakers will look like a glitter bomb was dropped on them.,

    29. Toy Story–themed block heels to take your Disney accessory game to "infinity and beyond!"

They are so so detailed and light up when you walk!! They also have a tiny built-in speaker that plays sound effects. I can’t stop staring at them. Way more worth the money than when I bought Christian Louboutins lol. Not even joking. Don’t sleep on these!!" —Katiejk

    Promising review: "These were my first ever Sarah Flint shoes and it was a beautiful experience just opening the box, from the way the shoes were packed to the shoes themselves. Such an elegant and classy shoe and the quality is undeniable. The cognac leather is so rich in color and texture. It's almost a shame to wear them! I bought a slightly larger size to allow for summer wear." —Joanna C.
