    20 Sandals To Slip On Before Your Next Long Walk

    Expect more time walking and less time treating blisters.

    1. Elastic sandals you'll wear at music festivals, theme parks, or on long walks without a blister to show for it — because blisters are really going out of style IMO.

    2. Platform Teva sandals ideal for anyone who wants a little lift and to feel like they are walking on clouds all day long. *Smashes add to cart button.*

    5. Rockport clunky clog sandals so you can dance at weddings and go on long walks with your S.O. without compromising on style or comfort.
