Leslie Price & Natalie Alcala, Editors at Racked LA

the 10
must-have SoCal shoe styles

The Founding Editor of Racked NY, LESLIE PRICE has been at the forefront of fashion blogging from day one, before decamping to the sunnier environs of Los Angeles to take over as Editor of Racked LA. With Associate Editor NATALIE ALCALA by her side (Natalie has a sixth sense when it comes to tracking notable emerging talent), the dynamic duo spends their days battling gridlock to cover L.A.'s eclectic shopping scene. The one upside to driving everywhere? Infinite footwear possibilities (hello sky-high wedges!).

Here, Racked LA editors Leslie Price and Natalie Alcala share the 10 pairs of shoes to don while basking under the SoCal sun.


  • 1

    Joie Day Dreaming Smoking Flats

    Like a glam house slipper you can wear out in public.

  • 2

    Jenni Kayne D'Orsay flats

    The LA designer has to reissue these shoes every year to keep up with demand. They're chic, comfortable, and basically have their own fan club.

  • 3

    Sam Edelman Trina Low-Heel Sandal

    This brand is a go-to for faithful (and affordable) interpretations of the latest trends. This is a popular shape for summer in a go-with-anything color scheme.

  • 4

    Golden Goose Young Boots in Black

    Golden Goose is a serious, serious investment, but their boots will last you a lifetime. This pair has a dusty, Erin Wasson vibe that feels very West Coast.

    Schutz Imalia Evening Sandal

    The perfect shoe to dress down with destroyed denim, or up with a mini. And metallics look great against tan legs.


  • 6

    Chloe Elah Wedge

    A platform wedge is a great way to add substantial height without completely killing your feet. These gravity-defying beauties pair well with spring whites.

  • 7

    Ancient Greek Sandals Clio Metallic Sandals

    Handmade in Greece, this simple sandal's metallic sheen offers a touch of flash. They're great for pedicure day.

  • 8

    Jeffrey Campbell Soiree Platform

    Celebrate LA's driving perk by wearing a platform sandal with a lucite heel.

  • 9

    Isabel Marant The Dicker Ankle Bootie

    An essential neutral bootie to sport with breezy spring dresses à la Kate Bosworth. The short heel makes them great for day.

    Nike Free Run+ 3.0

    A chic, lightweight running shoe that guarantees looks at Runyon Canyon and Equinox.
