    Reviewers recommend ordering a half size down.

    Promising review: "These are cute and comfortable! I took the advice from other reviews and sized down. I am usually a 6.5 but got a 6, and they fit perfectly. I have wide feet, and these adjusted very well. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a simple but cute shoe." —ESGF

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 60 styles).

    Zodiac Shoes / Via

    Promising review: "These shoes are so cute! They fit true to size, and I was excited to find that they didn’t pinch my toes. One of the things I love about them is they have a small piece of elastic inside the heel of the shoe, it helps to kind of grip at your ankle and pulls the sides of the shoe in to keep it from flipping off the heel while you walk. Genius idea! I wish more of my shoes had that!" —burn1

    Get them from Zodiac Shoes for $69 (available in sizes 5-11 and in seven styles) or the mustard yellow above from DSW for $68.99 (available in sizes 5-10).

    4. A criss-cross sandal that'll go with basically everything you have in your closet, so be prepared to wear them A LOT.

    A cork bottom slide with black criss-cross straps

    Promising review: "I love these! They're super comfortable, plus the leather part is soft and comfortable and does not rub. I don’t normally buy shoes online, but this purchase was a great find. I would definitely recommend them. I wear a size 9 1/2 or 10 depending on the shoe, but in sandals, mostly a 10, and they fit perfectly." —BreC

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in whole sizes 6-11 and in black, brown, and white).

    5. Lagos sandals designed to be a more sophisticated take on a flip-flop with the structure of a leather slide, so you'll find yourself living in these all summer.

    Get them from Zou Xou for $149 (available in European sizes 36-42).

    6. A pair of mules that'll be your go-to pair from now until fall (AKA the time when it's finally cool enough to wear jeans and a sweater again).

    Madewell / Via

    Promising review: "I love this mule. The comfort level is awesome given the new padding they added to their shoes, and the style is on trend. It’s a super easy show to throw on with jeans or perhaps a denim skirt. I bought the amber brown and the style and color go well with everything. The block heel is great especially for someone who doesn’t like wearing heels. You can’t go wrong with these mules! " —musicmama

    Get them from Madewell for $148 (available in sizes 5-11 and in brown and black).

    7. Cheetah-print high-top sneakers you can wear with your favorite jeans and white T-shirt and look stylish as hell.

    Promising review: "I really like how these shoes look! They are super cute and are comfortable! I normally wear a size 7.5 or 8, and they fit perfectly! They are really lightweight and look to be made pretty good. If you're looking for a cute pair of leopard slip-on shoes, these are for you." —Paul

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in whole sizes 6-11 and in four styles).

    8. A pair of rain boots so stylish that you won't care if you wear them even when the forecast is wrong and it's perfectly sunny outside, not a rain cloud in sight. It's all about being prepared, right?

    Promising review: "I'm in love with my new rain boots! I used to have tall boots, but they were always too clunky and difficult to walk in. These lower boots with elastic are PERFECT. Not only are they cute, but they are also extremely comfortable! I had no idea rain boots could actually feel good to walk in. There is some padding inside, which really helps with the comfort. I usually wear between a 6.7 and 7. Purchased size 7 and it fits beautifully. I highly recommend, especially at this price!" —kris b

    Get them from Amazon for $54.95 (available in whole sizes 4-13 and in 11 colors).

    9. Some sneakers that fold down in the back, making it even easier to get them on your feet.

    Olukai / Via, Nordstrom

    These are some of my favorite shoes in my closet. They're such a classic style and really go with everything — plus the fold in the back is actually extremely useful. Once, I took a workout class and was getting ready in the dressing room after. I was able to keep my shoes on, but also get ready and not worry about my feet touching the floor (because who knows what was on there). Plus, I can just slip them on when I'm in a rush or just too lazy to put them on all the way without fear of ruining them. They show no signs of going out of style. I'm a fan.

    Get them from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in seven colors).

    10. A Sam Edelman classic slide sandal worth the investment because they're comfortable, cute, and are a style you can wear for years to come.

    Model  wearing the sandals with cut-out design across the top of the foot in brown

    Promising review: "These sandals are very comfortable. They have a bit of cushion in the footbed that makes a big difference from most flat sandals. They're very versatile — I purchased the saddle brown color that is a perfect accessory to pretty much any color. Great sandal for the money." —Anna Perman

    Get them from Amazon for $99.95 (available in sizes 5-11 and in four styles).

    11. A d'Orsay flat to help you prove your ~point~: you don't need to mess around taking time to put on shoes when these look so good.

    The pointed-toe flat with tonal stripes and a geometric pattern in pink, red, black, and yellow

    Get them from ModCloth for $55 (available in sizes 6-10).

    12. A pair of rainbow leather slides that add the perfect pop of color and fun to any outfit.

    The slides with two sets of thin straps across the footbed in different rainbow colors

    Promising review: "These sandals are great! So comfortable and really cute. The rainbow color isn't super bright; it's very tasteful. These are true to size and guess what? They don't make a flip-flop sound when you walk! I love mine and plan to buy these in different colors." —IHeartMadewell

    Get them from Madewell for $49.99 (originally $98; available in sizes 5-11 and in three styles). Plus, get an extra 30% off with the code GIANT at checkout.

    13. A ballet flat, because you don't need hours and hours of dance training to know how classic and elegant these are., Amazon

    Promising review: "The more that you wear these shoes, the comfier they get! I can walk around in them all day, and I get a ton of compliments on them. I usually feel frumpy wearing flats, but that's certainly not the case with these — I just ordered the beige color, and I might get the leopard print. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE SHOES!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 32 styles).

    14. Velvet sneakers you'll have no prob-llama wearing every single day — just imagine these lil' guys cheering you on as you crush whatever the week throws your way!

    Blue velvet slip-on sneakers with elastic in the corners of the top with a fuzzy llama on top of each one

    Promising review: "These shoes are so fun, comfortable, and well made! Buying these were a step out of my lane, but I’m so glad I bought them. They bring JOY to my day!" —Jeanne T.

    Get them from Soludos for $65 (originally $119; available in sizes 5-11).

    15. A pair of moccasins that'll probably make you feel like you're wearing slippers out in public, and that's just about one of the best feelings in the world. It's like you're cheating the system or something., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these shoes so much that pink is my fourth pair. They are comfortable enough to wear all day, look great for casual days, and come in such an array of colors. I bought my first pair for comfortable shoes pre-foot surgery, and I knew I hit something right when I noticed the younger girls wearing the same style. Now that the surgery is done, these are still my go-to for everyday wear. They hold up well to the elements, and I really do wear them from the end of March until it's too cold to go without socks. Such a great value, and I get so many compliments on them." —boysrus

    Get them from Amazon for $47.94 (available in sizes 5-11 and in 15 colors, with some colors also available in wide sizes).

    16. Birkenstocks you'll be able to walk 500 miles in. And 500 more.

    Model wearing the shoes in white with two big buckles across the top

    Promising review: "These shoes are adorable! I love Birkenstocks and was so excited to get this white pair. They can be cleaned pretty easily, and I think they are a little more fun/different than the regular leather. They fit exactly the same as the leather—comfortable, durable, and perfect for walking around!" —BDCA

    Get them from Nordstrom for $99.95 (available in sizes 5-10.5).

    17. Some sneakers that look like real sneakers but instead of laces, they have elastic across the top so you can slip these on at a moment's notice.

    Camouflage shoes with white soles

    Promising review: "I love this shoe. I have had numerous comments about where did I get them and how cute they are. They are comfortable and very stylish. I like the worn-out look, so these are just what I like!! I've been wearing them with shorts, but I think they'll look great with jeans. They are a very casual shoe but still cute." —debbie L.

    Get them from Amazon for $39 (available in sizes 6-11 and in 29 styles).

    18. Huarache sandals perfect for the summer when you don't want your feet to overheat the second you step outside.

    Model wearing the handwoven flats in brown

    19. Sneakers with a mesh top so you can put them on in approximately .5 seconds as you head out to the grocery store.

    Model wearing the sneakers with a knit design in black and white

    If you have wide feet, reviewers recommend sizing up a half size.

    Promising review: "I like these shoes so much I bought two pairs. My feet are very narrow, and I have trouble finding shoes that fit without coming off my heels. These have the comfort band that makes them very comfortable." —Jane from MA

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 5-13 and in 33 styles).

    20. Some espadrilles great for people with wide feet. Everyone deserves to own pretty shoes!

    Five single espadrilles in different colors with a lace-like fabric

    Promising review: "These are absolutely adorable. Plus, they're very affordable, but they don’t look cheap. However, considering the price I don’t expect them to last for years. You have to be realistic. I’m a 7.5 with wide feet. I ordered a 7.5, and they fit perfectly. I wore them one day so far with no-show socks, and they’re very comfortable. I can’t wait to wear these for my Europe trip next month. I highly recommend them." —J. Garcia

    Get them from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes 5.5-9.5 and in nine colors).

    21. A pair of Rothy's made from recycled water bottles, so you'll not only look good, but also feel great about helping the environment a bit.

    Model wearing the pointed toe flats with an orange stripe across the top and small orange and white stripes around the rest of the shoe

    Promising review: "I now have ten pairs of Rothy's Point. They are the only flats I wear, as they're comfortable enough to walk all day in and pretty enough to continue out to dinner. Plus, very few shoes suit my wide, high-arched feet, and I was thrilled to discover these. I get a lot of compliments on them, and they're very distinctive: quite a few women have said, 'Oh, are those Rothy's?'" —Gabrielle H

    Get them from Rothy's for $145 (available in sizes 5-12 and in 20 styles).

    22. Birkenstock Essentials sandals that look like the original style but are made with a waterproof lightweight material perfect for any water adventure you go on this summer.

    Reviewer wearing the sandals in black outside

    I've had these shoes for almost two years now, and they still look just as good as the day I bought them. I love the original Birkenstocks, but when I saw these, I knew I wanted them because they were waterproof. I wear them normally, but I especially love to wear them when I'm near water. I was recently at a family lake house and wore these all the time. I was able to go in and out of the water and not worry about stepping on a sharp rock or weeds. Plus they dry quickly, are super comfortable, and look good.

    Get them from Amazon for $44.95 (available in women's sizes 5-15.5 and men's sizes 3-13.5 and in 18 styles).

    23. A pair of Allbirds tree loungers made out of eucalyptus tree fiber, which makes them breathable, so your feet don't get too hot no matter where or how long you wear them.

    Model wearing the shoes in brown with a white sole and perforated look to them

    Promising review: "After trying a few different styles, materials (eucalyptus versus wool), and sizes, I landed on these. They're super easy to slip on and off, which is helpful when running around chasing a near-walking, soon-to-be one year old. Their hands-free, no-fuss style, and extremely comfortable to wear, are the key reasons I love these shoes. Any new mom (or dad!) should get a pair!" —Taylor K.

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 (available in whole sizes 5-11 and in six colors).

    24. A braided sandal you'll come ~across~ a lot in your closet because they're simple but have an interesting detail that will make you want to put them on.

    Model wearing the sandals with brown soles and black crossed straps across the top

    Promising review: "These are the best sandals I have ever bought besides my Birks.. these are great! I love them! They are so affordable, and I'm literally wearing them every day. They also have a little bit of stretchy-ness to them, so they move with your foot a little bit, which means you never get rubbing!" —Maxmilian Eckstein

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99 (available in whole sizes 6-11 and in 24 styles).

    25. A penny loafer because who needs the ~tassel~ of tying shoes when you can wear these beauties instead., Amazon

    Reviewers recommend ordering a half size down.

    Promising review: "These shoes are affordable, comfortable, and really cute! I had been looking for a loafer shoe, and these looked promising. They have a tiny heel that's just right, so not completely flat and not too high. The pointed toe makes these more modern and dressy. I took into consideration other reviews on size. I normally wear an 8.5 up to a 9, especially in dress shoes. I went with an 8 and they fit perfect, despite having a wider width foot. I plan on regularly wearing them to work. I'll update my review if they don't hold up, but they seem decently made." —Vans

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes 6-11 and in 35 styles).

    26. A double-decker shoe that'll be the ~cheery~ on top of any outfit. Trust me.

    Get them from Keds for $84.95 (available in sizes 5-11).

    27. Heeled Chinese Laundry sandals with a block heel, so they'll be comfortable to wear for hours, even if you find yourself walking through some grass., Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased the sunflower yellow. The suede has a sheen to it that makes them look like a lush gold, but not in tacky cheap way. The photos, including mine, make the suede look more rough/hairy than they look. It is very smooth and soft. These are the kind of shoes that are so comfy you feel like you could run in them. I'm a size 7.5 but I purchased an 8 just to be safe and they fit prefectly. I have a wide foot and a high arch." —Christa

    Get them from Amazon for $36.36+ (available in sizes 5.5–10 and eight styles).

    28. A pair of braided sandals more than 2,500 reviewers swear by for their water-resistance, comfort, and cuteness.

    Model wearing the sandals with braided straps across the top and around the heel in black

    Promising review: "These sandals are incredibly comfortable! I was so relieved they fit well because I'm sometimes an 8.5 but there aren't half sizes, but these fit perfectly! I thought it was so funny reading their website and their warning says 'don't buy these sandals if you don't want compliments.' Well, the first day I wore my sandals I got tons of compliments and every time I thought of their warning. It's so true these are unique and brilliantly styled sandals. The quality is wonderful! I'm 100% satisfied and happy with these sandals! The customer service is also phenomenal!" —ShoreShank

    Get them from Amazon for $34.95 (available in whole sizes 6-11 and in 22 styles).

    29. And a fringe slide that are true statement-making heel, and the statement says, "I'm a fashionista, and I know it."
