    1. Criss cross sandals from Sorel with a fun lil' peep toe that'll put your favorite nail polish color on display. They also featured a molded rubber sole that'll provide you with all the traction you need.


    I tore a tendon in my foot earlier this year and still have residual pain pretty much daily (FUN, RIGHT?!) so wearing sandals has been a bit of a challenge this summer. These sandals from Sorel have felt super supportive, really soft, and have enough traction to make me feel safe going up and down many flights of stairs in them. Not to mention they're really cute!

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a functional sandal for a while. I can wear them with shorts or jeans. The fit is true to size and they are very comfortable. I love the rugged sole." β€”tmiller

    Get them from Sorel for $36.98 (originally $75, available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

    2. Comfortable sandals you can wear during all of your warm weather adventures. Blisters? Sore feet? NO MORE!, 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 $65+ (available in sizes 5–11 and eight styles).

    3. Or actual Birkenstocks, in case you're ready to splurge on a sturdy pair of classic sandals that'll support you as well as your best friend would after a tough breakup.

    Promising review: "This is the third pair of these metallic Birkenstocks I have bought over the past few years. This time I bought the silver (I have the copper and gold as well!). I LOVE these shoes!! They have the a soft footbed so they're more comfortable/easier to break in than Birkenstocks that don't have the soft footbed. They wear really well and are very stylish!" β€”Caylyn

    One of the BuzzFeed Shopping Writers snagged a pair of these and is a big fan. Check out what she had to say about them here (#1).

    Get them from Free People for $135 (available in sizes 36–41 and four metallic colors).

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

    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 11 styles).

    5. Slingback sandals featuring playful stripes and studs you'll probs get compliments on from strangers you walk by on the street.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this shoe. The block heel is very comfortable, and the front strap is loose enough for my wide feet. The scalloped strap does not dig into your foot. I was skeptical about the material as I normally prefer shoes made from real, breathable leather, but they are soft and smooth like real suede." β€”I. Koehncke

    Get them from Amazon for $29.90+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and seven colors).

    Promising review: "If you're looking for a sleek, minimalist, good quality sandal, these are for you! I was worried that they'd be too narrow for my wide feet, but the sandals fit perfectly. Genuine leather and speedy delivery!" β€”kay p

I bought the size 6 and they fit perfectly. The straps were easy to put on and the soles are very comfortable. I wore them all day yesterday and walked approximately 5 miles around Dallas, TX with no blisters and very happy feet. I would highly recommend these!" β€”T. Brandt

There is a little bit of padding in the sole. Not so much that you feel like you're walking on bubbles, just enough to make them comfortable for extended periods of walking. The leather straps across the top of your foot and heel are also very comfortable. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase." β€”amymn

    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

    Promising review: "Perfect chunky sandal! I was pretty sure these would fit well since I already have a pair of platform sandals by J Adams but I really underestimated how comfortable these would feel! I love them even more than my first pair. This company does not disappoint. Beautiful quality, extreme durability and fits wonderfully. I have wide feet so finding shoes that aren’t sneakers is difficult. I’m so glad I found a shoe brand that caters to my foot size and tastes. Can’t wait to purchase my next pair!" β€”Katelyn K.

    Promising review: "These fit great, as I find I'm the same size in all Clarks shoes. I was worried that the crossed straps might dig into the top of my foot, but they are smooth and lined with soft fabric on the inside. No rubbing and the adjustable back strap ensures that the fit is snug enough not to shift around. The arch support is nice and high. The wedge gives a fair amount of stability to the shoe without looking clunky." β€”Jen Roth

    28. Scalloped slides that'll go with every single summer outfit in your closet β€” yes, even that jumpsuit with the crazy all-over print.


    Promising review: "I've gotten a TON of compliments on these since buying them. They look adorable with a bright pedicure. They are a little tight but I suspect that's because it needs to stay on your foot since there is no back strap. I wore these all day while hosting a shower and they were comfortable and held up well. Would recommend for special occasions!" β€”dee29

    Get them from Target for $12.99 (available in sizes 6–12, in regular and wide widths, and three colors).

    Promising review: "I really like these shoes. I wore them all day for a beach wedding and they were super comfortable. The clasp is adjustable, and the shoes have a bit of sparkle but aren't gaudy. They are a bit on the narrow side, which I found flattering, but if you have very wide feet these might not be the best for you." β€”Phila

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and nine colors).

    Promising review: "I am obsessed with these shoes! I bought them in lavender and honestly wear them every single day - I wear them to yoga, to the store, to the beach and practically everywhere. They are SO comfy and are really so cute!" β€”Molly McNulty
