The Most Comfortable Sandals on the Internet You May Never Want to Take Off

Best comfortable sandals for women



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. 


There's a reason these are a best seller.
