Elevate your Crocs while holding on to the comfort with this sandal version. These are lightweight, water-resistant and keep you a bit springy with a buoyant foam.
Fun + sporty, this Teva is so lightweight that it floats in water, perfect for all those water sports you plan to do this summer. The bold pop of color and buoyant base would look great paired with a maxi skirt or a kayak — take your pick!
Go retro with this comfortable slingback with cushy padded insoles -- so fun while still being practical too. I'm already planning my next pedicure so I can show these off!
Reformation Maya Flat Sandal ($168)
This sweet (but not too sweet) sandal features a square toe with a charming bow. They're darling enough to don in the evening, but we also think they're perfect for a dainty daytime look!
Cut from a unique Mexican fabric cotton, this Tulum-inspired sandal is crafted with a padded sole for extra comfort and says adventure all over it. Definitely plan on packing these for vacation this summer!

This fresh take on the classic jelly sandal comes in vibrant colors *and* this glitter variety. They're also recyclable, which you know we love.
These aren't your average flip fops. Slide into these pretty quilted sandals for a splash of color in your choice outfit of the day.
H&M Crochet-Look Mules ($35)
Kick up your heels in crocheted crossover foot straps and block 2-inch heels this summer. I'd pack a few bandaids while you break in these bad boys, though — the texture can be tough on delicate feet.
We love a good ankle strap, and these flat leather sandals stand out with a woven detail and cloud-like padding. Add to cart!
Everlane's buttery soft leather make these day sandals a win-win for all-day walking kinda travel. We'd go as far as to guess they'd even survive the stairs of Santorini!

These woven raffia sandals, made in Sezane's Portuguese atelier, are a mix of casual but cute enough for dresses. We adore the v-shaped detail on this versatile sandal!
Teva Midform Universal ($36)
Back to the beloved Teva, these slightly platform ones in a colorful hue are perfect for all day, getting around town, and standing out in the comfort crowd.
This day-at-the-beach or any summer activity shoe gets high ratings for color and comfort. And you know we love a rainbow color palette!
Zara Suede Sandal ($90)
This suede sandal with a chunky heel looks like a mobile piece of art. I'd say anyone who dares to wear this modern sandal officially belongs in the MoMA!
