Best Sandals for Your Next Vacation

Best Sandals for Your Next Vacation
Amy Wheeler

Summer’s here, which means it’s time for all those travel adventures you’ve been waiting for. Finding the right pair of sandals for your vacation is one of the hardest things on your to-do list, so let us help you cross it off. We have some awards we’d like to hand out to our favorite sandals from our website, so without further ado, here they are:

Best Overall Sandal:

The Birkenstock Arizona is a customer favorite for a reason. The supportive cork footbed molds to your feet over time and creates a custom fit. We love the Antique White suede for summer this year, and the Soft Footbed model is comfortable right out of the box! They can be dressed up or down, making them the perfect day-to-night option.

Best Chunky Sandal:

The Teva Hurricane XTL2 Ampsole is the ultimate way to embrace the chunky shoe trend. This fun, oversized take on the classic, sporty Teva Hurricane XTL2 is ultra-trendy and ultra-comfortable. They’re great for wandering around a new city or trying new restaurants and bars.

Best Leather Sandal:

For a versatile look, we recommend the P. VALLARTA 655-0575 by Pikolinos. Pikolinos uses high-quality calfskin leather to create shoes that are both comfortable and beautiful. The flower design makes this a fun option for the daytime, while the leather and barely-there heel help dress it up for night. 

Best Wedge Sandal:

For your fancy, exciting nights on the town (or just anyone who wants to look extra nice), the Aetrex Lexa is the ideal wedge. With arch support, memory foam cushioning, and fully adjustable straps to help customize your fit, these give you the support and style you’re searching for no matter where you go.

Best Flip-Flop:

Some days, your vacation attire might need to be a little more casual, and that’s where the Vionic Tide comes in. Flip-flops aren’t those flimsy pieces of foam anymore – they’re durable and supportive. These no-fuss sandals have arch support, and their built-in orthotic is shown to be effective in helping to treat heel pain, so you can walk around in them all day long without a care in the world.

Best Closed Toe Sandal:

Okay, so you didn’t have time for a pedicure before the trip – that’s fine! We’ve got you covered. The Dansko Rowan is a simple, closed-toe flat with arch support. It’s the perfect hybrid of a casual sandal and a closed toe shoe. This go-anywhere style features leather linings for breathability and a cork midsole with rubber outsole for long-lasting comfort.

Best Supportive Sandal:

Vacations mean a lot of activities, and walking around all day can be a bit of a nightmare sometimes. Discover the beauty of healthy, happy feet with the Sanibel from SAS Shoes. SAS Shoes has created the perfect sandal with their signature, comfort footbed.

Best Recovery Sandal:

If you have a hangover, you reach for a greasy breakfast and coffee. If you spend all day walking around, you reach for some recovery sandals. For those “I might have pushed it too hard yesterday” mornings, try the Oofos Recovery Slide. Oofos proprietary memory foam absorbs impact and cradles the foot – it’s like a little pillow for your feet.

Best Lightweight Sandal:

Whether you’re doing something in the water or just looking for something to slip on without extra thought, the Birkenstock Arizona EVA is the ideal lightweight solution. They’re modeled after the original Arizona but made from ultra-lightweight EVA that almost makes you feel barefoot. Plus, they come in a ton of cute and fun colors, so you can get a pair for every outfit.

EVA Elemental Blue

So, whether you’re outdoorsy and adventurous or laid-back and mellow, there’s a pair of sandals for every vacation you’ve got planned this summer.
