    1. A pair of precious block heels with a thin ankle strap and trendy blue velvet fabric β€” and ooooh, just *THINK* of all the outfits these will tie together.

    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!" β€”Maryellen

    Get them from Amazon for $21+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 29 colors).

    2. A cork-sole slip-on in bold colors and neutrals that'll make an even bolder statement. These are some minimal effort, high impact shoes I can ~stand~ behind.

    Get them from Walmart for $50 (available in sizes 5-11 and four colors).

    3. A go-with-everything 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." β€”The PAK

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 6-11 and five colors).

    4. A t-strap sandal featuring pretty ornate cutouts so you can just as easily rock them with a flowy dress as you can with jeans.


    Promising review: "I bought these to wear to a wedding and I think I'll get a lot more use out of them! I'm a true 8, not too narrow and not too wide. The 8 fit perfectly. It wasn't tight around the ankle or across the top. They were very comfortable to wear/walk in for several hours! I bought the gold and it's a nice light gold color. Not too shiny. Love them for $14!" β€”E. Gibson

    Get them from Amazon for $18.49+ (available in sizes 5-11 and five colors).

    5. An embellished slide for when you're on-the-go but still want to look effortlessly cute (me all day, every day).

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


    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." β€”Tara Button

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 11 colors).

    7. A mule-style option with an asymmetrical top line and column heel that'll make you feel incredibly timeless β€” you know, as you frolic through the vineyards of Italy.

    8. A gladiator-style flat because every closet needs a comfy, stylish, and simple pair of summery shoes to fall back on. That's like, sunny wardrobe 101.


    Promising review: "Fit perfectly and the nude color is great for me. Zips up the back, stays on, and is comfortable for all day wear. I have the same shoe in black, so this is quickly becoming one of my favorite styles. And for the price, I can afford to get them in every color they come in! Oh, and I find these fit true to size." β€”Simplymeliz

    Get them from Amazon for $18.39 (available in sizes 5-11 and eight colors).

    9. An incredibly cozy sling back flip-flop I swear you'll never want to take off. The footbed is a padded yoga mat (!!!) and the straps are a soft fabric so your foot is happily cradled from sunrise to sunset.

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes to take to Spain for a week vacation. I am a size 6.5 in the majority of shoes I wear, aside from running shoes (size 7). 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 five miles around Dallas, TX with no blister and very happy feet. I would highly recommend these!" β€”T. Brandt

    Get them from Amazon for $12.97+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 40 colors/prints).

    Get them from ModCloth for $45 (available in UK sizes 3-8).

    11. A simple go-to staple for warm, casual days that can be paired with practically anything. Jeans? Sure! Dresses? Of course! Pajamas? Honestly, WHY NOT?!,

    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 β€” a few hours to all day) and, since the straps have molded to my feet a bit more, they are even more comfortable. They are great for work, errands, or other activities that alternate between walking and sitting. Overall, I would definitely recommend them!" β€”Chelsea MB

    13. An adjustable pair with buckles so you can find the perfect fit. The faux-cork midsole means your foot will conform to the shoe and feel like your sweet feet are perfectly bundled.,

    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." β€”Joshua S.

    21. 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!" β€”Shannon Boothby

    Promising review: "Wore these to a wedding and received one compliment after another on the style and beauty of the shoes. I have wide feet and do not like to wear really high-heeled shoes any more. The wide heel gave me stability and some height. The material of the shoe stretched to my wide feet. I wore them all night, no pain. This was an amazing find especially given the price. I highly recommend!!!" β€”Barb

    Promising review: "For the price I was a bit worried these shoes would not be the quality I wanted. They are great. Good fitβ€”a bit wide but I tightened the straps and It worked. Great color. Cork sole is very comfortable for my 67-year-old feet. We have no carpet in our house so I have to wear shoes inside the house all the time or my feet wear out. A good buy!!!" β€”Kindle Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99 (available in sizes 6-11 and five colors).

    26. A pair of stretchy, hand-braided flats made with soft nylon to keep your feet blister-free. Will you want to wear these every day? Probably. Should you order two pairs? Definitely.

    Promising review: "These shoes are even cuter in person than in the picture! Extremely comfortable and so easy to get them off and off! I am partially disabled, with the use of only one hand and arm. A simple zip to put them on and off avoids all the strap buckling that requires two hands. They are sexy and versatile, looking as good with capri pants or shorts as they do with a dress or skirt. At this low price, I am now checking to see if I can order more pairs of these in some different colors!" β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 19 styles/colors).

Loved them so much that I ordered them in gray as well. They can be worn with a dressy outfit and would also work with gauchos or wide legged slacks/capris. In addition, they are comfortable!!!" β€”Leen
