Where can I buy comfortable and stylish summer sandals?
Glamour AND comfort in a single pair of sandals? We're here to tell you it's possible. Mumsnetters share their tips for the sandals you'll want to wear all summer long
Birkenstocks Gizeh, from £45
With a special moulded footbed to ensure maximum comfort and available in lots of colours, Birkenstock Gizehs are just as good for an evening meal as they are for traipsing around town.
“I have them in three colours. They are THE most comfortable summer sandal for walking in, and unlike the traditional strap Birks, they work with a skirt or dress. Love them.”Buy it now
Tevas, from £21
Tevas feature adjustable grosgrain straps and a comfy textured footbed – good news for your feet. Style-wise, these are winners too – loads of colour combos mean there's something to suit every wardrobe.
“Really comfortable. I think they look better than most walking sandals – including with dresses. I love them so much that I have them in three colours.”Buy it now
Fitflops, from £30
Fitflops look very chic when worn, but have a cunningly hidden squidgy base within the wedge sole, which gives you some extra height while protecting your feet. Genius AND comfy.
“I expect I'll be wearing Fitflops for about the sixth year since I discovered them. They help my back and all my joints when standing all day on a hard floor, and I can walk for hours and hours (the proof is how I feel the next day!)”Buy it now
Sam Edelman Gigi sandals, £69.99
Comfort doesn't have to mean cumbersome, as these sleek Gigi sandals from Sam Edelman demonstrates with aplomb. The footbed is well padded and there's an adjustable ankle strap too, improving fit without sacrificing style.
“I love Sam Edelman Gigi sandals. They're slightly cushioned whilst still looking fashionable and dainty, and I can really pound city pavements in them.”Buy it now
Hotter Tourist Sandals, £59
If you're all about the comfort, then Hotter sandals are what you're after. They're apparently blissful to wear – like walking on clouds. And they come in a range of lovely colours, too.
“I love my Hotter shoes! My feet thank me every day that I wear them.”Buy it now
Hobb's Katherine Scallop sandal, £129.00
These sandals from Hobbs are Italian suede with scalloped edge detail around the straps, making them a brilliant way to add a splash of elegance to any summery outfit. And they also last for ages, which doesn't hurt.
“I've never had anything from Hobbs that wasn't comfortable, and they last for years. I got my last pair of sandals from there six years ago and those are still OK.”Buy it now
Clarks Ledella Trail sandal, £60
Sometimes only a heel will do, and this chunky 70s-inspired mule from Clarks will go an absolute treat with a flippy dress or an A-line skirt. Don't let the height deceive you either – they're comfortable enough to wear all day.
“I bought Clark's Ledella sandals last year and I've worn them a lot. They're very comfortable, and feel flatter than they actually are.”Buy it now
Earth Spirit Victorville Biscuit sandals, £34.95
If you're secretly (or not so secretly) a bit of a girly girl, then the little applique flowers on these comfy sandals from Earth Spirit will be right up your street.
“These were the last pair of sandals I bought. I got them four years ago and I've worn them every summer, I love them so much!”Buy now
