We’re not going to sugar coat things here. It’s middle of a work day in the middle of winter and, according to your iPhone’s weather app, the middle of your evening commute is timed to a storm. You could use an escape—even if it’s just for five minutes.
Our suggestion? Toggle your way over to Loeffler Randall’s website and dream about the glorious, 75 degree moment you can lace their adorable new ‘Heartla’ lace-up sandals on your feet without cold or wet toes. A exclusive release based on the brand’s super popular ‘Starla’ style—where that one has stars on the laces, this variation swaps in teensy hearts—the design is available in two color ways (all red or silver and gold), and costs $195. And while these beauties admittedly won’t see much action for another few months, remember: They are only available on the label’s website, so by the time you decide to use Valentine’s Day as your excuse to buy a pair, sizing will likely be spotty.
