DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse

The Downtown Crossing location of this national-chain is gigantic, with multiple levels and a clearance department the size of most other shoe boutiques. You're almost guaranteed to snag sandals here—and at a majorly steep discount.

Serenella Boston

For sandals that you won't find on every other pedestrian's feet, come to Serenella. The high-end boutique exclusively stocks Aquazurra stilettos, an Italian brand with price points around $500, as well as French favorite K. Jacques—gladiator perfection.

The Tannery

Running the gamut from affordable to seriously not, The Tannery has footwear to please every need. Scoop some Margiela upstairs in the "Curated" department, or simply shop Jack Rodgers and Kork-Ease on the main floor.

The Frye Company

Boots are the first thing to come to mind when thinking Frye—but the Americana-loving leather brand has quite the sandal collection too, including wedges, strappy flats, and slip-on thong sandals.

Thom Brown

This Newbury mainstay is all about footwear, with relatively inexpensive styles from Jeffrey Campbell, Chinese Laundry, Havaianas, and many more on its displays.

Urban Outfitters

Sure, the sandals at UO are quite disposable—but it's the perfect way to try out a fleeting, of-the-moment look for under $50. Or if you're simply on a budget, it's a great way to feed your summer footwear craving.
While the apparel at 344 is typically geared toward the undergrad set, its footwear wall always features sandals fit for any trend-obsessed shopper. BCBG, Steve Madden, and MIA are among the brands sold at this shop.
