After spending two summers babying my finicky feet, I’m pretty much an expert on the most stylish and supportive comfort sandals on the market. If you follow my fashion posts, you’ve seen me feature quite a few pairs over the last couple of years, but now I’m going to sum it up for you with the best of the best.
Even if you don’t have finicky feet, it’s good for your overall health to wear practical shoes whenever you can. I used to love the flimsiest flip flops and the highest high heels, but nowadays I’m content to spend my days in shoes that are kind to my feet. Does that mean I’m officially old? Wait. Don’t answer that.
Fortunately there are a lot of great stylish options on the market so you don’t have to check your fashion sense at the door.
The Best and Most Stylish Comfort Sandals
1. Orthaheel a.k.a. Vionic
I list these first because they come recommended by so many podiatrist and physical therapists, and they do a really good job and finding the perfect marriage of comfort and style. I own 3 or 4 pairs of Orthaheel sandals, and you can see in my Daily Mom Style feature how often I wear them. My favorites are the Adelie. I get compliments on these everywhere I go.
The Lizbeth are really cute too, and because they have the back strap, they are easier to walk in.
A physical therapist I saw last summer suggested FitFlops for a stylish comfort sandal, and I have one pair. They’re definitely comfortable, and they have some cute styles, but they’re just too big for my flat feet. If you have thicker/wider feet, you might really like them. They have a lot of cute new style this year. I love the Biker Chick Thong.
The Walking Company has been generous about sending me comfort shoes to try out. Abeo is their proprietary brand, and they basically have built-in orthotics. They sent me the Barbara to try out. The cork footbed molds to the shape of your feet, and these are probably the most comfortable sandals I’ve ever worn. I like that I can adjust both of the straps so they stay on my feet.
They also sent me the Brielle. These are super comfy in a different way. The footbed is made of this glorious soft suede material, and they cushion my feet nicely for flip flops. I really love the styling on these.
Born Shoes makes a stylish, comfortable sandal. These aren’t quite as supportive as the ones I’ve listed above, in that they don’t have a biomechanical footbed, but they still have a level of comfort that is sufficient for most people without foot issues. Plus, CUTE!! I have Mai and the Tilda.
Now I’m moving into foreign territory. I don’t own Birks, but they are in style right now, and I hear that they’re great for your feet so I decided to include them. I like this Gizeh style.
7. Earth Brand Shoes
I’m sure there are more. I’ve asked for suggestions before on my Facebook Page, but of course now I can’t find the thread. If you have some other suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments!
