10 Most Stylish & Comfortable Sandals (They Exist!)

earthies sandalsSandal season has arrived! Moisturize those feets, get a pedicure, and ... record scratch ... welcome the blisters. It doesn't have to be that way though. Luckily, comfort and cuteness now go hand in hand, and shoe designers are making super cute styles that won't make our feet feel like they are on fire after we wear them.

The rule of thumb for comfy sandals is often a small heel or little wedge, but I found some that break those rules and still keep your feet happy. Like these -- the Earthies Amalfi sandal ($169) in bright red from Zappos. Crochet shoes! And there's more in even better prices.

The fringe detail on the Born Kassidy Brown Suede ($51.99) from 6pm is adorable, and the chunky heel makes it more comfortable to walk. Plus, Born is known for their soft footbed and easy to wear shoes.


I love the weaved wedge on Aerosoles Water Plush Striped Wedge Sandal ($44.95) from DSW.

And this super fun print on NaturalSoul by Naturalizer Baber Espadrilles ($39.99) from Kohl's.

A blueish grey shoe! I am in love with the Kork-Ease Deborah ($150) in Orion from Planet Shoe, which also come in black, beige, and green.

The braided strap detail on the Minnetonka Haley ($66) from Zappos is very boho chic. Comes in this brown and also moss green.

My sister loves her Sofft brand shoes and she walks all over the city with them. These Sofft Palaiseau ($115) from Piperlime are a hot color, have the height, and are still comfy.

Two years ago I bought Miz Mooz Renee Clog and they are my most favorite and comfortable shoe -- I wear them everywhere, even to the playground with the kids. This season, they restyled the Renee and have the Hilary ($109.95) from Zappos. They also come in green, ice, red, and whiskey.

If you want an even lower heel, Soft Style by Hush Puppies Ronni Sandals ($49.99) from Kohl's offers a simple look that goes with everything without the height.

These are on my must-have this year list. The Worishofer 251 sandals ($59.95) in green reptile from Endless also comes in 30 other colors -- solids and prints. My friend Lindsay has the slingback and the sandal and sings their praises.


Which pair of comfy sandals is your favorite? Do you have a pair you love and can attest to their comfort?

The Zappos look fun. But for me, Camper shoes win hands down for funky Spanish style and comfort. http://www.camper.com/en/eshop/productos.xhtml?type=W

I LOVE Born shoes!!! I have a pair of sky-high wedges from them that I found at Kohl's last year and they are the most insanely comfortable heeled sandals I've ever worn. I can wear them and be on my feet for hours with no blisters and no achy knees.

I don't think a single one of those shoes are cute...they remind me of a the shoes that ladies at a retirement community would wear.

They are hideous, I agree with the previous comment. Based on this post, I can't believe you blog on beauty and fashion.

Stylish?  No thank you.  I wouldn't wear a single pair of those shoes if they were free

I think the crocheted ones are super cute, they'd go great w/ the crochet bathing suit from Nordstroms I'll never afford.
