    Promising review: "I would give these 10 stars if I could! If you are a boho-girl, you will fall in love with these as soon as you open them. Genuine Dr. Martens; the quality is superb! Soft, flexible, high-grade leather. The platform is so comfortable and feels similar to a boost-cushioned sole like a tennis shoe. You could walk in them all day." —cyntsational

    3. Steve Madden sandals for when you want to wear simple sandals, but nothing ~too~ simple, ya know? Give me a little spice.

    Promising review: "My feet are wide, so I was worried that the strap near the toes would be too narrow, but it wasn't! I'm also happy to report that these shoes were comfortable to wear right out of the box. I've worn them about five times now (for varying degrees of time — a few hours to all day) and since, the straps have molded to my feet a bit more. They are even more comfortable!" —Chelsea MB

    Promising review: "If you'd like to add 3 inches to your height without the dangers of toppling over, you've got to try these platform sandals! They're absurdly comfortable, soft, lightweight, and breathable. I've walked miles in these. The open strap design visually elongates the length of the leg. Also, there are lots of colors to choose from, and you will! I've got three and counting." —CC Mac

    6. A comfortable pair of slides that'll mold to the shape of your foot, making it the only sandal you'll find yourself grabbing for your errands and day dates with friends. Some may say they're *not* stylish. Those are the ones who have never actually worn these and realized how adorable they actually are.

    Naot

    I'm a convert. No, really. I was super against these styles of sandals because I thought they were clunky and uncomfortable. I finally got a pair, and I truly understand all the hype. These sandals are SO. DANG. COMFY. They're not *soft* like a memory foam shoe would be, but there's just something really comforting about them. Maybe it's all the space for your foot to be free. Maybe it's the soft band that never gives you blisters. Whatever it is, I'm obsessed. They also really *do* look cute on. I apologize for ever thinking otherwise. 

    Naot is a family-owned small biz based in Israel that focuses on selling shoes that are ethically and sustainably handmade. They also donate shoes to local charities!

    I got these for the upcoming summer events I'll be going on, and I absolutely love them already! They're surprisingly comfortable and super secure, so I'll feel comfortable wearing them around water without worrying about them falling off! They're also super cute as regular sandals for spring!

    Get them from Reef for $55 (available in sizes 5–11 and eight colors).

    12. Lace-up, ankle wrap sandals that'll have you feeling like a beautiful Greek goddess every time you lace them around your legs. No really, they're handmade in Greece!

    Promising review: "They’re exactly as pictured. The laces are not stretchy, so you’ll have to flex your legs while tying them or else they’ll be too tight. This means they stay up on my leg perfectly though. I’ll definitely order more sandals from this vendor." —Abs Inthe

    Get them from Greek Chic Handmades on Etsy for $72.05 (available in sizes 4–14 and in three colors).

    Promising review: "Very comfortable summer sandals for a reasonable price. I bought them before a music festival this April. The khaki color is neutral enough to go with any outfit, and the elastic is very comfortable, allowing me to walk for miles in them without any kind of blisters or discomfort on my feet (I'm the kind of person who gets serious blisters between my toes when I wear flip-flops, so that's saying something!). Soles are relatively thin but very flexible. I recommend these as a basic, walkable summer sandal that looks surprisingly stylish with any outfit." —Laura Beckman

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these sandals! I wore them on a four-day stay at multiple beaches on the Florida (USA) western coast. Walking miles, shopping in the cities and along the beaches, these sandals are so comfy! In water and sand, even the beaches that were more shelly. I have plantar fasciitis in both feet; the arch of these are amazing!! They were worth every penny!" —Lisa

    Get them from Amazon for $39.49+ (available in sizes 5–12 and in 21 colors).

    18. Toms cut-out sandals for when you want more support than a typical strappy sandal, but also want some breeze between your toes.

    Promising review: "Love them so much. They go with everything I will be wearing all spring and summer. And comfortable! I am not one that finds too many comfortable shoes with my arthritis. My feet do not hurt while wearing or when I take them off. I really like the strap in the back as well so that I am not constantly gripping my toes to keep sandals on." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $47+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 10 colors).

    Sandalim Shop / Etsy

    Sandalim Shop is an Etsy shop specializing in handmade leather sandals, bags, and accessories.

    Promising review: "Excellent craftsmanship and there's nothing like the feel of real leather on the bottom of your feet. The sole is the perfect tailored shape, the stitching is delicious. The extra layer of the tapered heel is just the right amount of lift. Searched for years for a pair like I used to have. They do not disappoint!" —Jen DeWitt

    Get them from Sandalim Shop on Etsy for $60.90+ (originally $87+; available in sizes 5–14.5 and 16 colors).

    20. Teva Tirra sandals to outlast any other outdoor sandal you've ever bought. These lil baddies are, quite literally, built for walking!

    Promising review: "I love these shoes! These are my third pair. They are extremely comfortable for all day or night wear immediately out of the box. I can dance in them for hours, which I can't say about most of my other shoes. I bought the silver pair to go with a specific dress I wore to a wedding. I have the gold ones and the white ones, too. I plan to buy the black ones soon. One drawback is the white bottoms because they get so dirty, and it is visible. But I have had success cleaning them with soap and water or baby wipes and getting most of the scuffs off." —beachbum2021

    Get them from Amazon for $38.99 (available in sizes 5.5–11 and in six colors).

    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE this sandal. I have never had luck with thong sandals; however, these are the most comfortable sandals I have ever owned. I had no problems with the thong between my toes. This is the first pair of sandals that did not irritate my feet; these were literally ready to wear." —Cabugi
