We may be in the middle of winter but blink and spring will be upon us. Or maybe you’re one of the lucky folks who’s planned a trip to a warmer climate after the holidays. It’s never too early to start looking for great footwear. I remember a trip to Chicago where I had to throw my sandals away and shop for some new ones because the blisters were doing me in! Ugh. No fear. I’m sharing the most comfortable walking shoes to buy now so that you won’t find yourself in similar circumstances.
A couple of my friends recently took a long vacation, and both of them talked about the importance of having a good walking sandal. Joe and I are planning a trip later this spring, so I decided to order a couple of pairs to see if I could find a pair I liked.
I want to have time to “break in” the sandals so they are comfortable right away. The Victoria Slide Sandal by NAOT, a brand I’ve heard a lot of good things about, manages to look casual and semi-dressy, plus it is also comfortable. I love the chain detail that gives them an upscale look. These will look great with pants, skirts, shorts, and dresses. I sized up a 1/2 size in these sandals. Anytime I purchase a shoe that curves up at the toe and heel, I’ll size up a bit. I don’t like my heel to hit the curve. Lol!
The Most Comfortable Walking Sandals To Buy Now -Sporty
Teva seems to be one of the most popular sandals when it comes to style and comfort. My daughter has a couple of pairs of Teva sandals, and she swears by them. I wanted a casual, fun sandal, so I finally decided to try a pair for myself. This pair will be here in a few days.
You can never go wrong with Sketchers! I’ve had other versions, but I liked how sporty these looked. These would be great when your vacation includes any type of physical activity where you’re afraid your shoes might get knocked off. No one at Disney wants to be bonked in the head by a shoe from above! These come in four different colors, and all the sizes are wide.
These are billed as hiking sandals. I don’t usually hike in sandals or hike at all, lol, but I’ve walked a few golf courses over the years with Joe. These would also be great to pack on a cruise. They’d work on the ship or for excursions. Wouldn’t these look cute with a nice skort? They come in 18 different color combinations if you don’t like the black, and they’ve been reviewed over 20,000 times!
The Most Comfortable Walking Sandals To Buy Now – Strappy
Here is another sandal by NAOT. I am a huge fan of wedge shoes, and this one is a great neutral color. The cork footbed might take a while to mold to your foot, which is another reason to get walking sandals before your next trip. These are leather, and I LOVE the velcro closure. I just got in a pair of Vionic dress sandals, and they have this feature, too. These come in a lot of colors, so I’m sure you can find a pair you like.
I’m a fan of wide straps. They never seem to chaff like thin straps. The thick sole is another feature I look for when I know I’ve got a lot of walking planned. These come in a ton of color combinations if you don’t like this version. I like the solid hot pink!
These are from a brand called CUSHIONAIRE. I mean, what a name for comfort! I thought this print was particularly cute. Black and tan are a classic combination, but they come in others, such as raffia, white, and olive. They are also waterproof, so if you’re going to be walking through water, these will work well.
Y’all know I love a great yellow sandal! These straps are elastic and stretch nicely as your foot moves. I love the wedge. It’s not very high, but enough to up the style factor by a notch or two. These are definitely casual but still cute enough to pair with a long skirt or flowy pants. If you don’t love yellow as much as I do, no worries. They are available in 12 other colors!
I really wanted to show these in the shiny black version, but I realized I hadn’t posted any white sandals yet. Get your self-tanner ready, Gurls! These would be great at your local water park or beach. Wash off the sand, and you’ll be ready for dinner on the patio. Reviewers say they are very lightweight (perfect for packing) and comfortable – win/win! There are 21 colors to choose from, so take a look at the link for what makes you happiest. 🙂
The Most Comfortable Walking Sandals To Buy Now -Slides
Oooo. I like these gold slides A LOT! Talk about a cushiony sole! They remind me of a soft Croc, to be honest. Hey, walking sandals are going to be cute but rarely chic. Anyway, these are by Wewaya, a brand I’ve ordered before, and they have been reviewed over 14,000 times. They come in several fun colors and prints and are just $25 dollars.
Okay, now. Hold the front door! I’m more of a Louboutin girl than a Birkenstock wearer, but dang! These look pretty darn chic. I guess it’s the black and gold combo, but these are a step up from what I usually see from Birkenstock. They come in several other nice colors, including a fancy silver. What about it, Gurls? Are any Birkenstock wearers reading today? Let us know if you love them!
Would you have guessed that these are orthopedic sandals? I don’t think anyone else will either! Arch support is a biggie with me as I have super high arches. The wedge “conforms to ergonomics, which can realize natural heel-to-toe rolling movement”. Ortho+Rest says that these are designed especially for people with bunions and sensitive feet. If the beige is too basic for you, check the link for other colors, such as white, black, and blue.
