Right now we’re seeing every version of the strappy lace-up sandal imaginable, but the gladiator seems to be the most prevalent style. Whether you love it or hate it, the fact that it draws attention to your calves is a fact.
Step up your calf workout game with this video for lean, sculpted calves that you’ll be proud to show off in your new shoes. The nice thing about calf exercises is that they tend to work most of the leg (your thighs kick in as a supporting muscle group) for a really effective calorie burn.
In the spirit of sandal weather and Summer, this festive salsa recipe is one to bookmark for entertaining or snacking. The vibrant mix of ingredients means lots of nutrition and flavor, so you can cut back on the salt (just one teaspoon!). Pair with baked tortilla chips for an even healthier move.
Here are just a few of the lace-up sandals that I’m stalking online. Don’t forget the perfectly faded denim cut-offs and off-the-shoulder top for the picturesque Summer hippie look. And apply self-tanner liberally to really bring out your calf muscles.
