An Overview On Women's Sandals

Sandals by nature are minimalistic, which means that their material needs to be high-quality for them to last. Some of the most durable summer footwear materials can be the least comfortable, though, so finding the balance between these two extremes can be challenging.

Advances in material science have allowed shoemakers to create layered insoles that are supportive and comfortable, while the soles are still sturdy and provide great traction. Sandal straps have also advanced significantly and can be both comfortable and firmly secured to your foot with minimal friction. While cheap flip flops and other kinds of sandals are still everywhere, quality sandals are easier to find than ever.

The Women's Sandal Buying Guide

  • When buying sandals online, familiarize yourself with the return policy before ordering.
  • Once you receive your sandals, try them on immediately and walk around indoors. This will let you test the sandals for comfort and how well they fit with minimal damage or wear, in the event you decide to return them.
  • Consider giving yourself up to a week after receiving and trying on the sandals before sending them back, in case they need to be broken in. This is, of course, unless there is an absolute dealbreaker, like they don’t suit your style or are far too large or small.
