    1. Hoy Shoes sandals that win the award for Most Summery Shoe of All Time. Any time you pop these on, I'm pretty sure they magically transport you right to the beach.


    Promising review: "I love these shoes. I traveled all through Europe in them. They don't have much of an arch support and are pretty darn flat, but I find them extremely comfortable. They're the best in tropical destinations because they can get wet — that actually makes them fit even better. Love them!" —Anonymous

    Price: $22.99 (originally $44.95, available in sizes 6–11, as well as 14 colors)

    2. Sam Edelman ankle strap sandal heels you KNOW you'll need for every wedding you'll attend from now until eternity, so it's best to invest now.


    Promising review: "Very comfortable for a heel of its height. The leather is great quality. This will be a very versatile shoe that I can wear to weddings and not worry about the heel sinking into soft ground." —Anonymous

    Price: $49.99 (originally $100, available in sizes 4–12, as well as 10 colors)

    3. Naturalizer ballet flats that will be your new go-to shoe. Goes with everything, mad comfortable, extremely cute — literally why even own any other shoes?


    Promising review: "This is the most comfortable black flat I have ever owned! The quality of the construction of this shoe is high, well worth the price point. I wear a women's size 12, and this shoe in a 12 was perfect." —Anonymous

    Price: $39.99 (originally $69.95, available in sizes 4–12, as well as six colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    4. Hunter rain boots so you can splish-splash about without getting your tootsies wet. Whether you're using them for yard work or walking through the rainy city, Hunter boots will ensure you stay dry.


    Promising review: "I was hesitant to purchase these based on price, but they are worth every penny. I have arthritis in both feet, but these boots provided the arch support and stability I needed to be able to wear them all day without added pain. I’ve worn them to a music fest where we stood for hours, worked in them 8–5 as a teacher, and walked on a field trip with my son for hours — no troubles!" —Monica

    Price: $49.99 (originally $95, available in sizes 5–11, as well as six colors)

    5. New Balance trainers that are so dang cute, you'll be leaving them on looong after you leave the gym (is wearing pink sneaks to bed too much?).


    Reviewers suggest going up half a size for the perfect fit.

    Promising review: "I ordered a half size larger on these shoes than I normally wear based on the reviews I read, and although I was hesitant/concerned about doing so, they fit perfectly! I’m glad I read the reviews and took others’ advice. I love the shoes — they’re super cute, stylish, and comfy!" —Kristen

    Price: $34.99 (originally $64.95, available in sizes, as well as three colors)

    6. Ugg perforated slip-ons so you always look cool as a cucumber even if you hastily step into these running out the door to do some errands.


    Promising review: "Love Ugg sneakers! I already have six different pairs/styles, and these are great as well. Well worth the high price since they are well-made, fit my feet perfectly, and have a nice arch so you can wear them all day. I get lots of compliments on all of my Ugg sneakers. My back needs support and cushion in my shoes and these fit the bill!" —Anna

    Price: $49.99 (originally $119.95, available in sizes 6–10)

    7. Adidas slides, because how are you supposed to continue your growing career as a hypebeast without at least one pair of these icons?


    Promising review: "These Adidas slides were truly my best purchase this year so far! I am out in Atlanta, Georgia, on a trip with my 15-year-old for a baseball tournament and I knew there would be some scattered rain/thunderstorms along with mid-to-high 80s weather. I opted for these because I knew they would be okay in the rain and my foot wouldn't be slipping around like they do in flip-flops. It was my best decision ever! My feet were supported, they were comfortable, and before you knew it, right after the thunderstorms and rain, they were nice and dry! All while being fashionable!" —Anonymous

    Price: $18.80 (originally $25, available in sizes 5–13, as well as four colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    8. Clarks beaded sandals so your feet don't start resenting you for all the "fun" (read: flat) sandals you wear. Warm-weather footwear that's actually supportive? Honestly revolutionary.


    Promising review: "Love these so much I'm already buying another pair! I tried to find some white sandals in a different brand for variety, but let's face it, the comfort of the Lexi Myrtle footbed has spoiled me. Now I expect all sandals to be this comfortable — and trust me, they're not!" —BleusChat

    Price: $52.90 (originally $85, available in sizes 5–12, six colors, and four widths; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    9. Sofft booties you'll be drawn to no matter the season. These beauties will be with you all year long, and you'll be all the more fashionable for it.

    Price: $79.99 (originally $109.95, available in sizes 6–10, as well as three colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    10. Born slip-on woven mules for "summerfying" any outfit you wear them with. These are vacation mules if I've ever seen 'em.


    Promising review: "Don’t think twice about this sandal, buy it! So comfy and cute! I purchased the cream color for myself and the black for my sister. The fabric is super flexible, doesn’t rub against the skin at all. I’ve worn these to a food festival walking around for hours without any discomfort." —Anonymous

    Price: $39.99 (originally $90, available in sizes 6–11, as well as five colors)

    11. Cole Haan oxfords so picturesque all you have to do is rest your feet on your desk while in your office to get cast as the lead in the next big John Grisham movie adaption.


    Promising review: "I instantly got multiple compliments on these when I wore them to work and out with friends. They look fantastic, and Cole Haan are the only dress shoes I will buy anymore." —Garrett

    Price: $100.79 (originally $140, available in sizes 7–16, as well as two colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    12. Asics running shoes for taking your running conditioning to the next level. You've been trying your best, but hey — an artist needs their paintbrush.


    Promising review: "I've been buying running shoes for 40 years. This shoe is the best fitting shoe I've ever had. Usually I'm a little loose in the heel. Not this time. I don't know what the life of the shoe will be, but considering I only paid half what I usually pay I'm pretty confident I will never have anything bad to say about this shoe." —Jim

    Price: $44.99 (originally $90, available in sizes 7–14, as well as six colors)

    13. Vans Old Skool skate shoes to prove once and for all that no mom, it wasn't just a phase.


    I have these shoes and love them with my whole heart.

    Promising review: "Best skate shoe for street skating. These were the best shoes I've ever had. I don't go for those big puffy styles. I like to feel the board. These shoes are responsive and comfortable. I usually wear 10.5 but I bought 10 because my feet won't slide around, and the canvas stretches a bit for a very customized feel. They were a little stiff at first, but nothing a day of skating couldn't fix. definitely buying another pair. Oh, they look sweet too, if looks even matter compared to function." —Idesiretheend

    Price: $42.20 (originally $60, available in men's sizes 3.5–13, women's sizes 5–14.5, and 43 colors)

    14. Bobs by Sketchers slip-ons to transform into your chillest, beachiest self, aka, your BEST self.


    Promising review: "These are among my favorite shoes of all time — like under-cover slippers! Ultra-light, soft, and breathable. I packed them on a trip to Europe (only adding 6 ounce to my suitcase) and when my 'walking' shoes started to hurt, wore these the rest of the trip. They saved the day. They can get dirty fairly easily, and do get wet. I'm about to buy my third pair and will try a water-proofing spray on an old pair." —Anonymous

    Price: $28.79 (originally $39, available in sizes 5–11, as well as seven colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    15. Vionic metallic sandals for when you really want your accessories to sparkle. 🎶These little feet of mine, I'm gonna let 'em shine🎶


    Promising review: "I had high expectations of these shoes after seeing an advertisement for Vionic in a magazine and then reading up on the brand. They definitely offer far more arch support than your typical sandal. I’d say they run about half a size big, but since they are sandals you could get away with your regular size. I received several compliments the first time I wore them to work." —Jlm

    Price: $42.99 (originally $99.95, available in sizes 5–11, as well as two widths)

    16. Chic Nike sneaks to make any outfit a little more cool and casual. These puppies are the key to pulling off athleisure.


    Promising review: "I wear running shoes constantly between work. These are one of the most comfy shoes I've ever owned. I prefer Nike because my foot is wide. Highly recommend." —Shelly

    Price: $40.66 (originally $64.95, available in sizes 5–12, as well as nine colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    17. Rockport cork heels whose light-as-a-feather weight will make them easy to dance the night away in at the tiki bar.


    Promising review: "Great shoes for a Hawaiian vacation! Comfortable for walking moderate distances, strolling, and dressy enough for a night out on vacation." —Lisa

    Price: $49.99 (originally $79.95, available in sizes 5–11, two widths, and six colors)

    18. Kids Nike soccer cleats, because those soccer-loving feet are gonna keep on growing, so buying cleats a few sizes ahead while they're on sale is a great move by you, super parent!


    Promising review: "Little one likes the bright color and that it matches his older brother’s pair. Have held up for two seasons of soccer!" —Anonymous

    Price: $17.65 (originally $25, available in sizes 10 Toddler–6 Big Kid, as well as two colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    19. Converse Jack Purcell low tops that are so universally cute, you should get them for your whole family to be matchers. Your parents, sister, brother, artsy cousin, and austere uncle would honestly all look great in these.


    Promising review: "If you like the regular Converse All-Stars then you will most likely love the Converse Jack Purcell. The Purcell is both lighter and all around more comfortable than the All-Stars. I have several pairs of Jack Purcells and they are all very comfortable and the fit and finish is consistent. The Purcell runs true to size, unlike the All-Stars." —John P

    Price: $38.99 (originally $64.99, available in men's sizes 3.5–11.5, women's sizes 5–11, as well as two colors; enter code "BDAY20" at checkout)

    21. And Birkenstocks in a teal color so sweet, they truly deserve to be displayed on the dessert table.


    Price: $180 (available in sizes 5–8.5)
