The Best Walking Sandals for Travel
Whether you’re shopping down the cobblestone streets of Cartagena or trekking the back roads of Cambodia, comfortable walking sandals are key for a day of exploration. Check out this guide to some of the most comfy, secure, and fashionable travel sandals out there.
Nueva Scalloped Slide Sandals by Isa Tapia
These linen slides had us at scalloped edging. Their neutral hue is edged in chic black embroidery and their slip-on style makes them easy to kick off for an impromptu dip in pool. Who knows, these might just help us get an upgrade on our next flight.
Petal Pink Lace Grosgrain Lexie Sandals by TOMS
TOMS' vegan sandals go into sweetness overload with ballet-slipper-pink straps and dainty lace. The cushioned insole and ankle straps keep things sweetly comfortable.
The Angie by UGG
Add some height—and edge—to your outfit with these sleek black platforms. Crafted with metallic leather ankle straps, a foam footbed, and a lightweight platform, these babies only look tough.
Acacia Sandals by EMU Australia
Don’t EMU’s two-tone lace-ups just ooze summer adventure? We love the perforated suede detail, plus the ankle strap means extra support for all of your wandering.
Adrien Sandals by Tory Burch
Tory Burch's silver-chain-embellished Adriens are like a statement necklace or chandelier earrings in sandal form. The heavy-duty buckled ankle strap will keep your feet in place, whether the day takes you meandering down unknown side streets or into a spontaneous dance party.
The Miami by VIONIC
These chic T-straps are kind of like a mullet: party on top and all business down below. The strong rubber soles feature built-in orthopedic insoles and microfiber-covered footbeds that absorbs shock to the lower body joints. But the metallic hardware keeps things interesting.
Jemma Sandal by BZees
This open-toe wedge may just be the most comfortable walking sandal we’ve ever experienced. Foam and gel cushioning give the footbeds a cloud-like softness, and the stone design give the stretchy denim uppers a bit of flair. They’re also machine washable in case you run into any travel snafus.
Kalapu Sandal by OluKai
No, you don't want to step on a jagged rock and ruin your beach day or rafting trip. And no, you wouldn't be caught dead in ugly water shoes, either! OluKai's Kalapu style lets water babies walk freely in the surf or at the shore, without sacrificing cuteness. Their ocean-current-inspired traction gives good grip and the overlapping straps provide plenty of security.
Around Town Backstrap by Merrell
A major upgrade from flip-flops, these Merrell sandals will keep you blister-free as you explore all ends of the earth. The design promotes breathability and comfort with a cork-covered base and back strap to secure your feet in place. The only question is: do you order the classic black or the earthy two-tone?
