My Mom and I Are 30 Years Apart — Here Are 12 Summer Sandals We Both Love

When it comes to shoes, I'm pretty sure my mom has better taste than I do. When she gives the stamp of approval, I know I've found a winner! She won't tell me that something looks perfect when she knows it's too wide for my foot or that it won't go with anything I currently own — I do the same for her! It's part of the reason we love shopping together.

We have three main criteria in mind (for ourselves and each other) when shoe shopping: first, the shoes have to be ultra-comfy; second, they have to go with everything and third, they have to be stylish, of course! It may be simple, but it's definitely not easy to find sandals that check all of the boxes. I've gathered some of our absolute favorite flat and wedge sandals, all of which we have, love and (occasionally) share — details below!
