It’s summer sandal season, but finding a great pair you can wear for hours on warm days at a fair price is no easy task. Luckily, Target is selling a $20 pair of shoes that’s perfect for the season — and they just so happens to look like a designer sandal that costs hundreds of dollars more.

The Edna Slide Sandals from the Universal Thread label are one of the more under-the-radar Target finds we’ve spotted recently. They’re practically identical to the $725 Saint Laurent Tribute Nu Pieds Slide Sandal, defined by sophisticated interlocking straps that run horizontally across the top of the foot.

Except compared to the designer version, the Edna Slide Sandals feature memory foam inside the footbed. This means they’re super comfortable to wear while walking around, whether you’re running some weekday errands or going out at night on the weekend. The fitted woven straps keep your foot in place, and no one needs to know they’re not actually designer.

Target originally offered the Edna Slide Sandals in a full size range for three colors, but the gray patterned version with a snake print is almost entirely sold out. Instead, you can get the sandal in a basic black or brown color called Cognac, both of which are perfect neutrals for whatever summery outfits you have in your wardrobe.

We combed through customer reviews of the Edna Slide Sandals, and despite repeated advice to size up either a half or full size depending on your foot width, shoppers seem to adore these designer-inspired sandals. Many call them a “cute dupe” and even “ended up buying both colors” since they’re so versatile for just $20.

“I didn't have high hopes for these $20 sandals, but bought them because they are a cute inexpensive dupe for the YSL Tribute sandals,” said one customer. “I must admit that I am pleasantly surprised by these. Sole has some decent cushioning and they are shockingly comfortable.”

“Gorgeous and inexpensive dupe!” another reviewer wrote. “Memory foam insoles are nice and cushy.”

With that kind of praise, it’s a wonder the Edna Slide Sandals are well stocked. While it’s true Target has a good selection of shoes that look more expensive than they actually are, we suggest scoring a pair of these for yourself while you still can.
