We’ve all been there – you find the *CUTEST* new sandals and put them on for a day of exploring, only to find out they’re actually the opposite of comfortable. And to us, comfort is key! So the ladies of LIY did some digging and found several pairs of sandals that will not only complete your head-to-toe look, but you’ll be living in comfort all day long!
Sandals [size up .5]
Orange tank [true to size, wearing in small] // Shorts [size down one, wearing in 2] // Black tank [LIYXSPANX for 10% off, true to size, wearing in small] // Twill pants [LIYXSPANX for 10% off, true to size, wearing in small] // Sandals [size up .5]
I’m not going to lie, I was hesitant about these when I first ordered them. They are a little outside of my standard sandal box being that they are a little chunkier than I’m used to, however, the second I slipped ’em on I knew they were here to stay. Not only is the footbed super comfortable, but the straps across the top are plush and cushiony which feels like a dream on! I will be wearing these all summer long! Note: I would prefer them slightly longer which is why I said to size up .5. I am wearing in my normal size above and they seem just a half inch too small!
OluKai Kapehe Luana Flip Flop [true to size]
I had heard great things about the OluKai brand being the most comfortable flip flop, and well, now I get the hype. For real. SO comfy. They have arch support, and while I’ve only been wearing them around the house so far, I’m told that the more you wear them the more comfortable they get! Bring on summertime!
Freedom Moses Water Friendly Sandals [typically an 8.5/9 and wear these in 8/9]
Vionic Landyn Sandal [TTS]
I discovered Vionic years ago when I started having knee troubles after a twisted ankle. All of this makes me laugh a lot at how old it sounds (30 is the new 60 I hear!), but it is what it is – and wearing this pair of flip flops around my house rather than going barefoot literally changed the way my ankle/knees/back felt almost overnight! FULL DISCLOSURE – I first discovered Vionic at my local shoe store, and highly recommend you trying the same if there’s one close by!
When I think comfortable sandals, I think Vionic, so it was an easy decision for me check out the new styles they had to offer. This pair does not disappoint, and I love that they come in wide as well!
Chaco’s Sandals [true to size, if in between size down]
I’ve been wanting to try a pair of Chaco’s for awhile now, and finally took the plunge! Happy to report these cute suckers will be my choice of Summer sandal when it comes to all things water and adventures this year! They have an amazing tread on the bottom, perfect for Spring or Summer Hikes! Great for lake and kayak days too! I love how the adjustable straps on these easily allowed my foot to feel like it was wrapped perfectly. I tend to not do well with flat sandals and these offer such wonderful arch support all around! If you suffer from heel pain, I highly recommend these. Your feet will thank you, I promise! I’m eagerly looking forward to sunshine filled days ahead my new found love: Chaco.
Get ya braid on! Braided sandals, heels, wedges all the things have been trending for awhile now; and I finally grabbed a pair to hop on that train! (See all the ways to style Erin’s fav Dolce Vita braided heels here). These have such a nice “cushion” feel – I am so excited to walk around all day in these this Spring and Summer! BONUS they are cute and can be dressed up or down! 👏 For under $50, I recommend snagging these friends!
Sandals [true to size, color light brown]
The fanciest sandals I own, but also the comfiest! This Dolce Vita brand is definitely worth trying out. Yes they’re a bit pricier but the comfort is so worth it. This braid trend is everywhere right now and I love it! These sandals could easily be dressed up with a summer dress or down with a pair of jean shorts and a tee. I will be wearing these on repeat all summer long!
Cassidy’s Olukai Sandals
Sandals [size down if in between!]
Say hello to the sandals that I wore all weekend long during my recent Savannah girls trip! They are thick, padded, and even water resistant! I definitely wish I would have sized down [I am typically a size 7.5-8] but because my feet are a little on the wider side, these still worked for me! I definitely found these to be comfy and like I mentioned that I wore them alllll over the historical district of Savannah, GA! I had zero issues and my feet were happy!
Hey it’s Lisa LIY 💛 It was time for me to invest in a new pair of Birks and I have had my eyes on this platform Papillio style. These sandals are so soft and comfortable. (And so light! The platform is not heavy!) Typically Birks take a little while for me to break in, but the upper leather on these platform sandals is so, so, soft! It’s almost as if the sandal molds to your foot. Still have the capability to move the buckle to fit the width of your foot. I cannot wait to wear these this summer!
Allison here! I find a wedge shoe so comfortable, and these wedges have the softest foot bed. I stood in them for a few hours straight, and they were super cushiony! They come in a few great colors, and the inside of the strapless are soft and don’t dig into your skin! Love these wedges!
Attention all wide-footed ladies! These are the perfect summer sandal ☀️ I usually struggle to find a good pair of sandals since I have wide feet, but these don’t leave my toes feeling squished and uncomfortable.
Hi LIY community! Debbie here with a pair of Skechers that are super comfy. I like to go on long walks with my doggy and the only brand I’ve found that are comfortable enough are Skechers. I love these for summer! They’re very cushy and so cute. They do run big so I’ll need to exchange my normal size 8 for a 7 since they don’t come in 1/2 sizes. I also have a wide foot and these feel plenty wide enough. I could walk in these all day!
Hey, hey! Ashley, here 🤗 I love my Sorel boots for Winter so I wanted to check out some of their sandals for warmer weather. I’m very happy with this pair of wedges & know they will get tons of action in the coming months! They’re light weight, have a slightly cushioned insole, and are a perfect neutral for all of the rompers & dresses that have been waiting to see the Sun ☀️ Also, the straps are a soft enough to move with me and hopefully avoid any dreaded blisters along the way. Thank you, Sorel!
Heather’s Steve Madden Slides
These Steve Madden sandals will be a summer staple for me! They will pair great with a swimsuit to the pool or lake during the day and then easily transition them to dinner in a dress! I think these are a great addition to my closet and will get a lot of use out of them. I love the look of slides, but often find myself walking out of them and I’ve had no issues with these.
