You’re a hustler. You commute to work, run around all day, go out, and repeat. So, you need footwear that can handle your busy lifestyle. Think about it — the worst feeling in the world is having to step delicately like some European princess because you spent your month’s rent on too-precious steppers, right? Shoes are meant to be stomped around in, so you need a pair that can get through your day sans panic attack every time you step on a speck of dust.
And, when they’re priced under $100, that unnerving guilt factors in even less. We found the coolest (and practical) summer kicks that'll allow you to walk freely without draining your funds. Be forewarned, there’s something for everybody ahead, including cocktail sandals, run-around flats, and non-nonsense sneakers — which means you still might end up doing some damage. Sorry, not sorry!
