HIGH-END SUMMER STYLES, LOW-END SANDAL PRICES

It's time for picnics in the park and boardwalk strolls, so free your feet and show off your pedicure in a favorite pair of sandals. Thongs, espadrilles, gladiators, and other popular summer options come in myriad colors and styles — and prices. You can pick up a great pair of Birkenstock look-alikes for a few dollars at Target or spend upward of $1,000 for a pair of white mule sandals from Hermès. If you want an amazing look for less, check out these designer knockoff sandals for a fraction of the cost of a high-priced pair. (Note: Prices and availability are subject to change.)
