I Refuse to Wear Sandals With Heels—Here Are My Favorite Flat Ones to Buy

At 5'10", it's safe to say I don't need any more height, but I also have plenty of other reasons for staying away from heeled sandals right now. Like many of you, I pretty much started denouncing fussy clothes the second week of quarantine, so I'm fully committed to all things comfortable. As far as I'm concerned, making the leap from house slippers to real sandals is hard enough, so why add in heels? 

Below, I've rounded up some of my favorite flat sandals on the market right now. I included plenty of under $100 versions, including the perfect strappy white sandals and my ideal pool sides. In case you're ready to splurge, I also included some fun new shoes by Prada and other luxury designers. Scroll down to shop my picks.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
