13 Pairs of Stacked Heel Sandals You’ll Wear Every Day This Summer

(via Washingtonian)

8b00a7137e87005c143e65bad351c7edThe fact that chunky, stacked heels are in style is a boon, and it’s one we should all be taking advantage of this summer. The wide heel makes it easy to balance in, harder to get stuck in between the bricks of Old Town and Georgetown’s sidewalks, and generally, more comfortable. With the right pair of stacked heels you can go from working at the office to sipping Moscow Mules at your friend’s rooftop party to every single wedding on your calendar this summer.

If you’re ready to get on board with stacked heels for the summer, here’s 13 pairs that fit the bill, all $100 or less.
