Women's OluKai Ohana in Lemon Grass/Black

OluKai Ohana in Lemon Grass/Black

Also available in Black/BlackDark Java/Dark JavaPewter/Black, and more.

Laid-back and beautifully simple, the OluKai Ohana is the perfect sandal for everyday style. Flip-flops are such a convenient go-to for summer, but when you're going to be wearing a pair of shoes that often, it's important to find some that are high-quality and supportive. With the Ohana, a cozy midsole gives you the feel of a more structured shoe underfoot. The man-made upper is designed to look and feel like real leather, but it's made of synthetic, water-resistant material. The Ohana is breathable and quick-drying, making it perfect for days on the beach. A non-marking gum rubber outsole finishes off this cute and comfy thong sandal. You can feel great about wearing the 100% vegan OluKai Ohana, which is made using absolutely no animal skins or products.

Women's Birkenstock Mayari in Bordeaux Pull-Up

Also available in Black Birko-FlorHabana Oiled Leather, and more.

The Birkenstock Mayari is one of the brand's most beloved styles, and it's easy to see why. This feminine take on the traditional Birkenstock look is popular with women from all walks of life. The simplicity of the adjustable criss-cross strap design makes it a versatile fashion piece, but the major draw of any Birkenstock shoe is its unbeatable comfort. A cork-and-latex footbed with a pronounced arch support, cuddly heel cup, and spacious toe box makes each and every step feel as dreamlike as the one before. The Mayari's EVA sole is flexible and lightweight, but still provides plenty of protection and shock absorbency. Both the Birkenstock Mayari and the Birkenstock Arizona, listed below, make chic, trendy options for summer.

The Pikolinos Alcudia 816-7585C1 is right on the cutting edge of summer's sandal trends with its ghillie lacing and strappy silhouette. Soft, semi-vegetable tanned leather gives the Alcudia a timeless charm. When it comes to comfort, the Alcudia offers a padded gel-foam midsole that cushions your foot from morning 'til night and adjustable lace closure to ensure a perfect, custom fit.

The two-strap slide sandal is a summer staple, but the Naot Susan takes this classic style to the next level. Cutout patterning and glittering rhinestones give the Susan its eye-catching sparkle. It's a sandal that's perfect for everyday wear, yet glam enough to pair with your favorite dresses. Like Birkenstock, Naot shoes sport an anatomically contoured cork-and-latex footbed that molds to the shape of your foot over time. This footbed allows for a supportive, personalized fit, and it's even wrapped in soft suede for ultimate comfort. As if that weren't enough, double elastic goring on the instep strap helps you get a perfect fit from all sides, so you'll always look forward to sliding your foot into the Naot Susan. All Naot shoes are skillfully handcrafted in Israel, which means that when you don the Naot Susan, you're wearing a gorgeous work of art.

Another sandal that's an outdoor essential is the Keen Newport.

Built specifically as a breathable sandal that offers real protection for the toes, the Newport features a patented rubber "toe bumper" that helps prevent injury when you're on the move in the wilderness. A molded EVA footbed covered in microfiber supports your foot with every step.
