If you have back issues, bunions or other foot problems (and let’s face it, many of us do!) wearing the right sandal can make all the difference. We are all guilty of buying beautiful sandals which we rarely take out of the closet because they hurt our feet, don’t provide enough support or cause blisters. While many “comfort brands” can look old-fashioned or dated, there are great options available for attractive sandals you will be excited to wear.
I am featuring four brands of footwear that are my go-tos for summer sandals. There are lots of end-of-season sales going on, so don’t hesitate if you see a pair you like! The brand Sofft makes feminine, full of comfort sandals that will have you walking on a cloud, all season long. Their sister brand Bionica makes flexible, lightweight sandals for all your adventures, in and around water. The Charleston Shoe Company is a female owned brand known for their “cobblestones to cocktails” sandals. Mephisto sandals are handmade by master shoemakers and combine modern design with excellent fit. So kick off your shoes, and get ready to click your way into adding a new pair of stylish AND comfortable summer sandals to your collection!
This is my holy-grail of summer sandals – I own them in 3 colors! Comfortable to wear all day and great for travel. I have been told this sandal is bunion-friendly too. Available in 8 colors which tells you how popular it is. Trust me – buy yourself a pair, you won’t regret it. This goes-with-anything color currently on sale.
I have been wearing this Mephisto style sandal for many years. It has a narrower profile than similar brands for a slimmer look. In white with silver leather, it will match most outfits. Worth the pricetag.
I also own these sandals which are city-walkable with a low heel. The perforated design makes this style super breathable. Great for the busy fashionista, and ideal for the transition seasons of spring and fall, when booties and traditional sandals might not look quite right. Available in 5 colors.
Also from Sofft, this Bali sandal is made of Italian leather with an oval statement buckle. Crafted with an ultra-soft cushioned cork footbed. Available in 7 color ways and currently on sale.
Bionica’s Cybelle 2 sandal is another favorite in my closet. The ultra-cushioned footbed delivers unmatched comfort, while the slip-resistant, rubber outsole provides traction and stability for all-day wear. This sandal comes in 5 colors. I own it in gold, but love the navy. Currently on sale.
These stretch demi-wedge sandals by Charleston Shoe are bunion friendly and look great with skirts and dresses. Great for travel too.
Everyone wants an easy-to-slide-on pair of flip flops, but if you need more support, this one by Bionica is a great option. Mine have lasted for several years. On sale this week.
Looking to add a pop of color to your sandal collection? Try a color block style, which is the perfect companion to an otherwise neutral outfit. This 2 1/4 inch wedge gives a boost of height without sacrificing comfort. Available in several colors.
I like this style sandal so much I decided to also show it in this fun animal print. The contoured footbed and flexible latex sole with an adjustable buckle top make this oh-so-comfy.
These sandals by Bionica are the ultimate slip-on-and-go sport sandal. It’s water-friendly design will dry fast so you can explore in comfort. Comes in several neutral colors, but the teal-turquoise combination screams summer!
