Not too high or too short. Very comfy. I thought the shoes were a sandy beach color, it even looks like it in the photo. It has sandy beach color undertones, but more goldish." —Amazon Customer

You may want to wear them around the house for a couple of days before wearing them for an entire day, it takes a bit to break them in.

    Plus, they zip up in the back so you'll never have to futz with an annoying buckle 🙌.

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these shoes. The block heel is very comfortable, and the front strap is loose enough for my wide feet. The scalloped straps don't dig into your foot. They do run a bit big (I'm usually between a 9 and a 9.5, and the 9 here was perfect). I was skeptical about the material, but they are soft and smooth like real suede." —I. Koehncke

    Promising review: "These sandals are fun, super comfy and (in the rose-gold color) are SO easy to match up with any outfit. I also got these in teal and love them just as much. I was skeptical because they are quite inexpensive: BUT I find them to be of great quality. I have wide size 8.5 feet... I got one pair in an 8.5 and the other in a 9. They both fit fabulously. Even when the excessive heat makes my feet swell they are still super comfy and forgiving." —The PAK

    Get them from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 18 colors).

    28. A bright pair of jellies to transport you to the '90s more comfortably than using a time-traveling machine to get there (I'm just assuming).

    Promising review: "These are awesome! I was skeptical because a lot of reviews talked about them breaking. Their first outing was to a '90s-themed bar crawl. I walked around in these from 12 p.m. to 1 a.m. with no breaking or blisters. I did not trip or slip even though they are plastic and it rained (and may have been...ya know...drinking! lol!) I got so many compliments and still do when I wear them regularly. My office loves them and they continue to be comfortable. They still are in one piece and I've had them about a month with multiple wears." —Sarah

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 7–11 and in seven colors).
