Flat sandals are a summer necessity, but they can be so boring. Sure, I won’t survive the season without my basic thong sandal, but once in a while (particularly when I’m wearing a longer dress or skirt) I’d like to rock a pair of flat sandals that are as powerful a statement as killer stilettos.

That's a good time to turn to Marios Schwab’s collaboration with Ancient Greek Sandals. These leather-laced and raffia-strewn head-turners are sure to put an exclamation point on any outfit. I wouldn’t expect anything less from Schwab, a designer who is an expert at amplifying female sexuality.
