    1. Beaded wedge sandals that'll make you feel like you just stepped directly into a scene from Mamma Mia!


    Promising review: "Oh my goodness I LOVE these sandals. My feet look amazing. They are comfortable to walk in despite the high heel because they are wedges. The straps around my leg fit just right." β€”Colleen Sinclair

    Get them from Amazon for $25.98+ (available in sizes 5–10 and in seven colors).

    2. Comfortable sandals you can wear during all of your warm weather adventures without fear of hurting your feet., 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).

    3. Gladiator flats to make you feel as badass as a Roman warrior, even if you're just walking to get Starbucks.


    Get them from Walmart for $27.99 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in four styles).

    4. Ruffled slides that'll have you feeling fun 'n fancy free while you strut your stuff through the office., 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. Or ruffled block heels to achieve a similar look, but take it to ~new heights~.


    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).

    6. Waterproof shoes you can wear while wistfully walking along the beach with a tropical drink in-hand.


    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 Amazon for $46.95 (available in sizes 4–9 and in five styles) or ModCloth for $45 (available in UK sizes 4–9 and in gold, red, blue, tan, and black).

    7. Or similar strappy sandals with a cork bottom, so you know they're gonna be super comfy!,

    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).

    8. Colorful and comfortable sandals that'll make you squeal with delight each time you wear them.

    10. Basic sandals with elastic straps, so your feet won't feel constrained when you step out into humid weather.

    I own a similar pair of shoes and my only regret is not owning them in every single color. They're super comfortable and airy β€” everything you'd want in a sandal.

    Promising review: "I love them! I am a 9.5 and got a 10 β€” the 10 is def a 10 so a bit bigger but good to know it is true to size. My feet sweat with certain fabrics, this one is not the case. If they had half sizes I would buy them in every color." β€”Lin-z Kobylanski

    Get it from Amazon for $12.40+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 11 colors).

    11. Stylish Jack Rogers' jellies, a must-have for any fashionista looking to cash in on this fun trend without breaking the bank., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is my second pair of the Georgica Jellies. They look just like the leather ones, but without the cost. Very comfortable. The medallion across the top is very soft and flexible, and does not hurt the bones in the top of my foot at all. On top of everything else, they are perfect for all kinds of weather. Will definitely be taking these to the beach/pool/etc. without fear of them getting wet!" β€”Danielle M. Hutto

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 13 styles) or from Jack Rogers for $49.95 (available in sizes 5–11 and in five styles).

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

    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 it from Amazon for $11.48+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 47 styles).

    Promising review: "Let me start off by saying how obsessed I am with these shoes. They are the MOST comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I'm going to order the other colors. I've worn these shoes all day, and I can go on all night too. However, I recommend anyone interested in buying these shoes to go a half size smaller. You won't regret it." β€”Mj

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4.5–11.5 and in 15 colors).

    25. Strappy sandals, available in a variety of muted colors you'll love so much you'll want 'em in every style.


    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

    26. Two-tone sandals with an ankle strap that'll make you want to skip all over and show 'em off.

    J. Adams / Via
