The Great Debate

Now that 80 degree weather is here to stay, I'm on the lookout for summer sandals. I normally buy new gold, leather and black sandals every summer and proceed to wear them into the ground. They always come from a place like Target or TJ Maxx and don't normally last more than one season. 
This year I'm debating my normal purchase... verses getting some staples I can use for more than one summer. I have my eye on these Tory Burch ones

And these I love from JCREW, and are $98

 But then these are $39 from Urban Outfitters, and I LOVE them
  
So here's the question. Would you invest in the Tory Burch ones or go with the $39 Urban Outfitter ones??? I need advice :-)

I vote UO ones, they're my fave.

Oh I think I like the urban outfitters best!

I always invest in the good stuff. I have tons of cheap shoes, and they NEVER last. Go with a nice pair that you know you'll have for years. I got some TB sandals 5 years ago, and they STILL look great.

Love the Tory ones! I have a similar pair and this is my third spring/summer wearing them and they are still in great condition -- it is worth the investment!

I never can make myself buy expensive sandals because I am so hard on them! But, I do LOVE those Tory Burch ones, however the Urban one are pretty fab as well!

I fall into the same trap every year and end up regretting it! I love the Jcrew sandals, but all of them are awesome! I imagine the Tory ones would last you forever!

Alexa said...

Urban Outfitters because they are just as cute!

I would go with the UO ones, I love the Tory Burch ones but I don't think I would spend that much on sandals (If we talk about boots then is a different story), plus the UO are gorgeous! And the J.crew ones look pretty versatile (the brown pair).

I would go with UO or J.Crew--they are both gorgeous! If I invest in sandals, I invest in a solid color pair to wear with anything and everything. I really don't think you could go wrong though with any of these options! xo

Can't go wrong with J. Crew. Ever.

I invested in a pair of Stuart Weitzman two years ago and they are still by far the MOST comfortable sandal I own! Would splurge on the TB's!
