Now that things are heating up around the country (temps are teetering close to 80 degrees on the West Coast right now), it's finally time to liberate our limbs with a cute pair of shorts or breezy summer dress and a cool pair of sandals. Let those toes come out of hibernation!

Whether you live in a walking city or find yourself going on long strolls around the neighborhood, comfort is key. We know shopping for sandals can sometimes be tricky. Not only do you want to find a pair that doesn't bestow you with blisters, but you also want them to be chic. 

Recently, I did a little digging to find the most comfortable sandals on the internet based on highly touted reviews and my tests of a few pairs on long walks. These sandals are the ideal balance of function, comfort, and style—great for indulging in long summer-evening strolls or dancing on an outdoor patio. You decide.

Sporty Sandals

The sporty-sandal trend is here to stay, and we have zero complaints about it. These are the next best thing to the comfort of running sneakers, especially with the added benefits of spongy platform soles and cool designs. They look seriously chic with sweatshorts and billowy midi dresses alike. I'm personally a huge fan of Tevas for their cushy comfort. 


Birkenstock Sandals

Like Tevas, Birkenstocks have been the leaders in the pack when it comes to comfy-cool style. Its classic designs are versatile enough to pair with practically every casual piece in your closet.

Flatform Sandals

Following on from Birkenstocks and Tevas, there are myriad brands providing well-cushioned flatform-sole sandals that don't compromise on style.

Slide Sandals

For easy comfort, these comfy slip-on sandals below are perfect for teetering about poolside or walking around the city.


If you're looking for a comfortable pair of flip-flops, try these elevated designs featuring cushioned soles, soft leather, and excellent reviews.

Lace-Up Sandals

Lace-up and gladiator sandals aren't always known for being the most comfortable options, but these picks below are making us think otherwise.
