Found: The Most Comfortable (& Stylish) Sandals To Hoof Around In
·6 mins read
Despite the fact that we’re traveling much less this summer, it's still managed to feel like we’re walking more than ever. And, all of this bipedalism means that we are in dire need of some serious workhorse sandals to follow suit. No more strapping on those questionably supportive gladiators or flimsy flip-flops and Ubering our ways around town. Now that we're using our own two feet to hoof it to a host of local destinations, our footwear will need to support us (literally) every step of the way.
We learned long ago that just because a shoe falls under the umbrella of “comfort” doesn’t mean it can’t be fashionable, too. With utility and style overlapping now more than ever, there are a plethora of choices this season that will enhance your walkabout without subtracting a single style point. Whether it's an unexpectedly cool cork slide, a recycled-rubber sandal adorned with dancing bears, or a leopard-print clog cousin, we’ve got you covered with summer-ready sandals that are both chic and sublimely comfy ahead.

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have been unavoidable if you’ve scrolled Twitter, opened a magazine or paid any attention to celebrity news during the pandemic: Earlier this year, it seemed as though they were photographed hand-in-hand grabbing coffee, walking a dog or openly posing for paparazzi on a near daily basis. Affleck and de Armas, who met on the set of the upcoming film, “Deep Water” in 2019, haven’t been shy about flaunting their romance this year, and Nina Parker, who co-hosts E!’s late-night celebrity news show, “Nightly Pop,” thinks that that’s proof of how seriously Affleck is taking his latest relationship. If Parker is correct in her assessment of Affleck and de Armas’ romance, it would represent a fairly drastic about-face on the “Batman” actor’s part: Earlier this year, he called his divorce from Jennifer Garner “the biggest regret of my life.”
When Hunter McGrady graced the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2017, it fortified her renown as “curviest model ever.” Since then, she has rocketed to success as a model and recently a designer of her own clothing line with QVC called All Worthy.
