    1. Strappy sandals that you might wind up wearing every damn day, and we definitely wouldn't judge you for it.,

    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." β€”The PAK

    Get them from Amazon for $17.39+ (available in sizes 6–11 and five colors).

    2. Leather sandals perfect for a walk in the park β€” or a walk anywhere, really (and you won't have to worry about getting them drenched on a rainy day!).

    Promising review: "I very hesitantly broke these sandals in at a four-day music festival! And they felt GREAT! I did do as others suggested and got them wet (actually wore them in the shower) and trekked around to soften them up first, but their maiden voyage went smoothly and I can happily report I have had no soreness or blisters while wearing them. Sizing was as described, too; I wear a 9 US and the 7 UK works well." β€”Tori

    Get them from ModCloth for $45 (available in UK sizes 4–9 and in gold, red, blue, tan, and black).

    3. Gorgeous minimalist sandals that'll complement your workday outfit just as well as your nighttime looks, because they know how important it is to multitask.,

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in five colors).

    4. Ruffle slides, which, let's face it, are just too damn fun (and cheap!) not to buy in every color., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are very cute! The fabric on top is so soft and I can't stop touching it. They sort of look like slippers on, but I think they will be nicer to wear to work than flip flops." β€”UAstudentn

    Get them from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in four colors).

    5. Strappy sandals in pretty, muted colors that I'm willing to bet money will go with every last one of your spring and summer looks.

    Promising review: "Obsessed with these sandals! The rose gold color is stunning, flattering, and coordinates oh so well. The design of the straps receives high marks as I noticed no uncomfortable rubbing or 'cutting' β€” even after walking seven-plus miles in them. My only trivial comment is that the rear zipper diminishes the "grab and go" characteristic of these shoes β€” but seriously, a minor issue compared to the rest of this shoe's beauty. And did I mention all of this for a mere $40? Hands down one of my favorite footwear purchases to date." β€”Anonymous

    Get them from Zappos for $39 (available in sizes 6–11 and in eight colors).

    6. Playful jellies that'll have you sliding straight into fun in the sun (and in the pool).


    Get them from Asos for $16 (available in sizes 5–10).

    7. A simple braided sandal for a chic upgrade on the old classic.,

    Promising review: "These sandals are super cute and comfortable. I wore them all day today (for the first time) with no issues. They are perfect, not too tight or too loose, just enough space to accommodate different width feet. I'm going to order another color!" β€”Maine

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in 11 colors).

    8. Gladiator flats just as suited for a jaunt around Rome as they are for brunch or a night out., Walmart

    Get them from Walmart for $27.99 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in brown, white, black, and nude).

    9. Seriously supportive and comfy fabric sandals that will make your feet will say, "OMG, thank you!" (Yeah, your feet can talk. They've just been waiting for these sandals.),

    Promising review: "These sandals are perfect! They look dressy enough to wear with a nice summery dress out to dinner, and yet not so stuffy that I couldn't throw on a pair of shorts and a T-shirt and head out to the park. They are a DREAM to walk in!!! The 'strap' material is stretchy enough to accommodate moving around and walking, and yet supportive enough to feel like these shoes won't fall off. They do give a very slight tug back into place, if that makes sense. The cushion is perfectly squishy without being too squishy β€” just enough squish for my plantar fasciitis to be happy walking in these all day. No, seriously...ALL DAY." β€”Scano The Mano

    Get them from Amazon for $11.48+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 47 colors/patterns).

    10. A sandal with some bling, because honestly, your feet do a lot and they deserve to feel fancy sometimes.


    Promising review: "Wore these sandals on my wedding day! Fit was perfect according to size and the jewels were all in place. Decently comfortable. Very satisfied!" β€”MEG

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95 (available in sizes 5–11)

    11. Super-comfy sandals that support your commitment to getting in 10K steps a day., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are one of the most comfortable flat shoes I ever purchased. The cork footbed makes them comfortable to walk around in all day. These are a staple for my summer and a cheaper alternative to Birkenstocks which I also wish to purchase." β€”Gg

    Get them from Amazon for $44.95+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in three styles).

    12. Fun crisscross slides that'll make it a whole lot easier to transition from your house slippers into your footwear in the morning.

    13. An artsy sandal whose cool structured straps will turn your feet into a work of art.

    14. A pair of flat strap-happy sandals that want to prove to you that heels are overrated.

    Promising review: "Loving this sandal! I love the color, the look, and the cushion. Great price for a kick around sandal! Will be buying more colors." β€”Chelsey

    Get them from Target for $15.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and 5W–12W, and in black, cognac, tan, white, and pink).

    15. Ridiculously comfortable T-strap sandals that are about to give your sneakers a run for their money.

    Promising review: "Wore these hiking 2 km down and then 2 km back up a mountain in Crete to get to a remote beach, six weeks after a grade-3 sprain. Does that tell you how comfortable these sandals are?! No chafing, no slippage, nothing. These are fabulous! I bought them in two colors and am so glad I did. Perfect fit!" β€”A. Elliss

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99 (available in sizes 5–11 and in seven colors).

    16. Chunky heels available in so many colors you can basically buy a pair to match every outfit you'll ever wear in a lifetime.

    Promising review: "Beautiful and comfortable all night, even while wearing a heavy gown. I'm a plus-sized woman with wide feet (and buntings) and these were perfect. Didn't cut into my feet and were simple β€” exactly what I wanted." β€”Natalia Y.

    Get them from Amazon for $21+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in 20 colors).

    17. A textured mesh Jeffrey Campbell sandal for when you're in the mood for a funkier, sporty spin on the casual slide.

    Promising review: "I now have three pairs! Very comfortable, cute casual slides. I did follow their recommendation and ordered one size up and they fit perfect." β€”mariedo

    Get it from Nordstrom for $39.95 (available in sizes 5–11 and in black, gold, and silver).

    18. Crisscross leather sandals that are patiently waiting for you to book that beach vacation, thank you.


    Get them from Asos for $34 (available in size 9).

    19. A pretty tie-up sandal, because your ankles deserve to get in on the fun of cute new shoes too.


    Get them from Asos for $12.50 (available in size 7).

    20. Ankle-strap sandals that basically nail the whole two-different-colored-straps-in-one-shoe thing.

    Promising review: "SO pretty. For the amount of money you pay you get a fantastic sandal. The material is smooth and looks and feel like real leather, and the sole has a little bit of cushioning, fact that I appreciate so much! There are a lot of sandals out there that have that tough sole and at the end of the day your feet will be incredibly sore. The color combo makes it simple yet elegant, it will dress up any outfit without sacrificing the comfort. Def will be getting a second pair!" β€”S&B Martin

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes 5–11 and in eight colors).

    21. Understated but vibrant slides guaranteed to brighten up even the gloomiest spring day, April showers be damned.


    Get them from Aldo for $16 (available in size 8.5).

    22. A strappy lil' number available in both sophisticated and playful hues, because it respects that you're a multidimensional person.


    Get them from Asos for $15.50 (available in size 12).

    23. And ruffle-detail heels in a few striking colors that we're not saying might *actually* stop traffic, but we're not saying they won't, either.


    Promising review: "I fell in love with these online and then went to the store to try them on. The heel is the perfect height and the block style makes it incredibly easy to walk in (and I'm six months pregnant!) I feel like they run a little big because I am usually a 10 but 9.5 fit me perfectly so keep that in mind. I got the black but wish I could justify buying them in every color because I love them so much!" β€”Alexe

    Get them from DSW for $29.98+ (available in sizes 6–10 and in two colors).
