Is there anything more offensive than flat sandals that give you blisters? Well, yes, certainly. But, they undoubtedly rank up there among our biggest sartorial pet peeves. We firmly believe that flat sandals should be a respite from our pain-inducing heels, which is why we decided to seek out the most comfortable sandals on the market.
All of the styles listed below are from brands known for making high-quality, easy-on-the-foot shoes that will let your feet live their best lives during the summer. We found slides, ankle-strap sandals, square-toe sandals, and even thong sandals that your feet will thank you (or us) for.
Read on to shop the feet-friendly sandals that we stand behind—all of which will also make your summer outfits better. Win-win, right?
