Editors Swear By These 10 Comfy Shoes For Summer

Ah, summer: season of backyard barbecues, lazy afternoons in the hammock, and...blisters? Unfortunately, yes. To save your feet, we rounded up a litany of warm weather shoe options that are actually comfortable (hallelujah!) and cute, all favorites of our SwearBy community.

Madewell's The Johanna Clog Sandal

Since social distancing began, I’ve been spending time aspirationally mood-boarding some summer looks, which is how I’ve decided to become a Clog Person. Upon finding this leopard pair on sale at Nordstrom, I knew it was meant to be. They’re SO comfy I walk around the house just to hear the satisfying clunking along the wooden floors, much to my current roommate’s dismay (my parents).”—Jayla Adrulonis

Rainbow Women's Leather 301 Flip Flops

“I may live in Manhattan, but I’m a California girl at heart, which means I’ve had a steady rotation of Rainbow flip flops in my shoe collection since I was a kid. They form to your feet over time and provide ample arch support. I wear them to the beach, on errands, and even around my apartment when it’s too hot for slippers or fuzzy socks.”—Christie Calucchia

Everlane The Double-Strap Block Heel Sandal

I wore them on my hour-long commute and through an entire day at the office without a single blister, thanks to the supple Italian leather straps that don’t dig in or rub into your skin. The two-inch heel gave me some lift but without any unwanted pain.”—Rebecca Carhart

Lima Slip On Bone

When I met with Nisolo brand reps earlier this year, they told me that the Lima Slip On was originally designed to be just a house shoe. Naturally, when customers saw how versatile the flats were — and how they complimented both indoor and outdoor outfits — the brand pivoted a bit. With the addition of a sturdier rubber sole, these Moroccan-inspired slippers became the perfect spring shoe. I’m so glad they made the tweaks they did because I’m pretty addicted to wearing these just about everywhere.”—Laura Reilly

Naturalizer 27 Edit Meera Slingbacks

The three-inch heel was super easy to walk in, while the slingback strap added stability. I liked that the strap had an adjustable buckle closure so I could customize the shoe to fit my foot perfectly.”—Rebecca Carhart

Valia Gabriel - Exclusive Greek handmade leather sandals and beachwear collection

I am obsessed with the comfort and quality of construction of multiple styles by this designer. I love the neutral colors and how they fit the foot in the most flattering way. Also an amazing dress up or down sandal.”—Rachel Finger

Bared Shoes Kea Leopard Print

I discovered these comfort shoes in Australia and am obsessed. They are designed by podiatrists but are super cute, meaning you can dance the night away and not be in pain! (Seriously, why do we still allow men to design women’s shoes. Haven’t we learned by now!?)”—Krista Simmons

Loeffler Randall | Starla Sandal

I rebuy a pair of these staples every few years because I literally wear them with everything in the summer months. Each new pair lasts over a season with almost everyday wear. Super comfortable and minimal with a fun twist (the star embellishments). This last summer, a woman approached me on the sidewalk to tell me how much these shoes have changed her life. We both started tearing up as she shared her story. Any shoe that can create that kind of positive energy and connection is a Go-To in my book.”—Allison Vicenzi

Tkees Flip Flops

They’re incredibly comfortable. Beautifully made. Extend the length of your legs by matching your skin tone. Travel everywhere. Can be wiped down easily and last!”—Alexandra Loeb

Bryr Handmade Clogs

These gorgeous clogs are made-to-order, by hand, in a workshop of all women in San Francisco. They are ecologically made with materials sourced in the US. They are amazingly comfortable and the only problem is trying to pick just one pair! I wear my neutral-colored pair with everything and use my eclectic color combo to spruce-up otherwise boring outfits.”—Jessica Leggett
