If you want to ditch the open toes because bugs or you just don’ like to show your toes. There are two great comfy options, the first you might have heard of or even own a pair is TOMS. TOMS shoes are great because they are super comfortable and light weight. The idea behind TOMS is also for a great cause. For every pair of shoes you buy, another pair is donated as well. The only problem with TOMS is that it’s not really meant for sports, and if you swear in them too much, they don’t end up smelling very pleasant. Another option is espadrilles which is a rising trend to keep an eye out for!!
