Promising review: "These shoes are absolutely adorable! They go with so much in my closet. And they are very comfortable. Right out of the box I wore them for an entire work day. I'm typically a size 7 and I bought these in a size 7. I only wish I had enough closet space for every color!" —MaryellenPrice: $21+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 29 colors)

2. An elastic pair that will stretch and conform to your feet so you can easily romp around in style and happiness.

amazon.com, Tara Button / amazon.com

Promising review: "These shoes are pretty simple, it's basically just elastic holding your feet in, with a little piece of faux leather at the ankle. They are really light weight, hardly feels like you're wearing a shoe at all. I wore them to the beach this weekend, and they were perfect to just throw on, and easily take off to walk in the sand. If you hate wearing flip flops, these are perfect. They also look cute with jeans! Definitely runs true to size. Looking forward to wearing these all summer." —Tara Button

Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 11 colors)

3. A strappy classic you'll love for its chic simplicity. The straps hit perfectly on your ankle to give your legs some length, making them perfect for shorts, skirts, or jeans.

Promising review: "These sandles 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." —The PAKPrice: $19.89+ (available in sizes 6-11 and eight colors)

4. A simple go-to staple for warm, casual days. They can be paired with practically anything.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "For these sandals, I ordered an 8.5 in the brown. They fit true to size. 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. I don't think these sandals would be ideal for a lot of walking around (at a theme park, on vacation, etc.) but they are great for work, errands or other activities that alternate between walking and sitting. Overall, I would definitely recommend them!" —Chelsea MB

Price: $29.96+ (available in sizes 5-11 and four colors)

5. A flirty, wrap-up espadrille to rock with cropped jeans, or a summer dress for a fancier look.

Promising review: "I'm a size 7(M) and I bought my actual USA size and these fit fine! The canvas will stretch so I didn't worry about any snug feeling. I love these. Very easy to dress up or down." —NBPrice: $35.40+ (available in sizes 5-11 and two colors)

6. A cute jelly heel because unlike other people, I think you *are* ready for this jelly.

amazon.com, Emma / amazon.com

Promising review: "These are great jellies. They’re so cute, fit perfectly, and the heel is a perfect comfortable height. Great for summer, but can also be worn with some cute socks for fall. Also they can be REALLY slippery on the bottom because of the jelly material, so I tried to rough mine up on some pavement first. Just wear them around for a while first to break them in as the jelly material is firm and might need to mold to your foot shape before they’re a perfect fit. Overall super happy with my purchase!" —Kailey

Price: $7.99+ (available in 5-11, and 17 color and style combinations)

7. A trusty pair of Rainbow flip-flops with thick leather straps for everyday wear. They're *sole* loyal, you'll want to take them on all of your outdoor adventures!

Promising review: "I've always loved Rainbow Sandals and was very sad when my puppy chewed up my favorite color. I finally managed to order a new pair and I couldn't be happier! I think I own four pairs of Rainbows now and I don't think I'd be happy with any other brand. I love the wide straps, and the longevity of these sandals is phenomenal! I think one of the pairs I own is over eight years old and still looks amazing. I can't wait to break this pair in more. These are definitely my go to sandals for summer!" —Shannon BoothbyPrice: $40.80+ (available in men's sizes 7.5-15 and 10 colors, or women's sizes 5.5-11 and 10 colors)

11. A lace-up gladiator with a small block heel that'll make your outfit stand out but still keep you comfy.

Promising review: "WOW! Really love these low-heeled gladiator sandals. They fit as expected: I ordered my size (8.5) and have a wider foot, and they fit great. Comfortable and really stylish on my foot. So far, they seem to be made well and I am overall really pleased with this shoe vendor. An added bonus is is how the company ships their shoes. Each shoe came in its own pouch as added protection for the faux-suede material. The service is above and beyond and so is the shoe! Excellent purchase." —Patti 415Price: $24.41+ (available in sizes 5-10.5 and five colors)

I just ordered the 'birch' and the 'black' pair. I want them all, but....well you know, have to have some control. I love how they cover your foot, but are nice, airy, and lightweight. Made very well. 😆" —LanieBPrice: $22.78+ (available in sizes 6-11 and 14 colors)

Promising review: "I bought these shoes to take to Barcelona Spain for a week vacation. I am a size 6.5 in the majority of shoes I wear, aside from running shoes (size 7).

Promising review: "I. Love. These. Shoes. I'm a 25-year-old who has had multiple hip surgeries in the past few years, and when my I complained to my mom about not finding comfortable shoes to work in she introduced me to Aerosoles. I started with their flat shoes and quickly fell in love with the all day comfort they provided. I am now able to wear heels, and although I have to really pick through which styles I love at Aerosoles I've been loving their collection for spring/summer. I get so many compliments on these shoes! I can put them on at 7:30 a.m. for work, wear them all day, and then wear them into the night for happy hour! Seriously...they're THAT comfortable. Take it from someone with 10 screws in their hips!" —Emily

Price: $39.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and five colors)

17. A funky sandal wedge that'll be your outfit's statement maker. Just think how cute these would be with a bright dress or light-wash jeans.

Promising review: "These are the cutest shoes! And they were very comfortable. I found them quite by accident here on Amazon and ordered them to wear with a dress for a party I was hosting, and I received so many compliments on them. Even strangers were stopping me to comment on my cute shoes! I am beyond pleased with these. Other reviews said to order a size larger so I ordered the 7 (I normally wear a 6.5) and they were a perfect fit! LOVE these shoes!!!" —catgirlPrice: $27.50+ (available in sizes 5-10 and four colors)

Promising review: "Love these! I listened to the reviews though. and bought a size bigger than what I wear and they fit perfectly. For example, I wear a size 8 and I bought these in a size 9, and held them up to each other and they were the exact same size. These shoes look just like the picture. Great buy! Quality is 10/10 as well." Joshua S.

Price: $20.87+ (available in 5-11 and eight colors)

19. An adorable mule-style option for Insta-worthy days. Think: brunches, vacations, weddings, and summery date nights.

Promising review: "I purchased these for my 23rd birthday and they were the most comfy heels I’ve ever worn. I was in them all night and didn’t have any marks or blisters. Color wise, the mauve is more pink-toned than nude but I’d say its color matches the picture. Love them!!!" —MandyPrice: $20+ (available in 5.5-8 and two colors)

21. A darling espadrille wedge with a canvas toe and leather lining that can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Promising review: "These babies were a godsend. I got black, and I was so worried that they might look tacky on me since I usually go for lighter colored espadrilles, but they were absolutely perfect! They're well made and I was able to walk on them for a good 16 hours (though I'm used to being on my feet). If you want that extra inch of height without having to deal with the hardships of an arched foot (cause heels!) this is definitely the way to go." —MaxgigifyPrice: $74.95+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 11 colors)

I put a lot of weight on my heels and even have a slight heel spur and these are so comfortable — I can and will wear them all day!" —Chel

Price: $14.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11, and 21 color and style combinations)

25. A criss-cross, braided gladiator to add some fun flair to your sandal game. It comes in four perfect neutrals so you might as well just stock up on each color. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Promising review: "Let's just say I'm very picky about gladiator-style sandals. There are many of them that I do not like. However, these ones are so cute. They are casual enough for jeans and shorts, but could also be worn with a casual summer dress. They have a good bit of padding on the soles of the shoes, making them very comfortable to walk on. The back zip enclosure does not rub the back of my ankle like some shoes do. I would order these again." —Jennifer HutsonPrice: $27.99 (available in sizes 6-11 and four colors)
