Every good wardrobe needs a pair of sandals that will take you from spring all the way through fall—so allow us to introduce you to some of the best sandals for women you can wear in any season. Though we have a soft spot in our hearts for sneakers, heels and boots, there’s just something about sandals we can’t help but adore the most. Maybe it’s the fact that they come in so many easy-to-wear styles. Or perhaps it’s just because we like to occasionally show off our pedicures. Either way, we’re always on the hunt for the best walking sandals that will not only keep our feet comfortable all day, but also look cute with our favorite ensembles.

Obviously having flat sandals for walking around in summer is necessary, but sometimes we forget just how well they can work in almost every season. In spring, you can’t go wrong with a classically cute strappy sandal paired with a mini dress. When the temperatures heat up even further, try a double-strap sporty sandal with your favorite cut-off shorts and a graphic tee. For fall, keep yourself cozy with an oversized sweater and jeans, but add a slide sandal if it’s not too chilly. If you live somewhere it’s warm most of the year, too, you can even rock a pair of sandals in winter. We love a good chunky dad sneaker as much as the next person, but sandals are definitely a must-have—as long as the weather permits.

Lucky for all of us, there are so many popular and trendy sandals on offer right now—and plenty of them are ideal for walking around every day. Occasionally, it’s worth it to get a few blisters from our shoes, but when you’re walking around a good amount and don’t want to sacrifice your feet just for a cute pair of heels, flat sandals are the answer. So many of the best sandals for women are actually perfect for staying on your feet for long periods of time. Not to mention, they’re also all ridiculously cute.

A little bit of wedge or platform won’t hurt the situation, either. Sometimes a completely-flat shoe isn’t as comfortable as a pair with a little bit of a heel. It varies from person to person, though, so make sure you know what styles of sandals work best for you. If you’re unsure, we encourage you to try a few pairs and see! At the very least, you’ll end up with a new pair of shoes you can use to elevate your favorite t-shirt and jeans ensemble. And, if all goes well, you have a go-to pair that keeps you comfortable all day long.

Whether you’re trying to find the perfect pair of supportive sandals to wear every day this season or just want something new from your favorite shoe brand, we’ve got you. Below, you’ll find 15 pairs of the best sandals for women, so go ahead and stock up on a few. Your feet will thank you.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
