Finding the perfect pair of summer sandals to wear when warmer weather rolls around can be tough. Many sandals have super flat soles that don’t provide any support and leave your feet full of painful blisters by the end of the day or are so flimsy that they break after just a few uses. Believe it or not, we found a pair of sandals that can withstand the test of time and replace all those awful sandals you’ve collected over the years: the Sanuk Yoga Sling sandals ($15 to $57; amazon.com).

This squishy pair of sandals has an overall 4.5-star rating on Amazon, with over 7,200 customers leaving it a perfect five-star review. And it’s no surprise that so many shoppers adore the Sanuk sandal—it was actually created for maximum comfort. The padded soles are made out of the same material as yoga mats (don’t you feel relaxed already?), and the straps are made with super soft cloth, so nothing will be digging into your feet or leaving you with painful blisters. One reviewer wrote that the cloth straps are so incredibly soft, she repeatedly stops in the middle of her day to think about how comfy they are. Plus, the sandals come in tons of different colors and patterns—seriously, there are over 60 options to choose from, so even if you have the most particular of tastes, you’ll still be able to find at least a couple of appealing choices.

Customers who have purchased the Sanuk sandals just can’t stop raving about them—and many even prefer them over the popular Birkenstock sandals—saying these shoes are more stylish and comfortable. “The comfort of these sandals is unbeatable,” one reviewer wrote. “I used to be loyal to Birkenstock and Reef, no more friends. These sandals have become my slippers, house cleaning shoes, and cute shoes for out and about.” Many shoppers even put them to the ultimate test—from walking around in them on their Disney World vacations to seeing if their feet still hurt after wearing them to work all day—and were all pleasantly surprised at just how comfortable they remained.


To buy: $15 to $57; amazon.com.

“I’m a hairdresser and few years ago a girl that I work with had these on—I wanted a pair immediately. Every day when I’m getting ready for work, I look at all my other shoes, then I put these on. Some mornings I’ll actually put on a different pair of shoes, then I’ll take ‘em off and put these on again. They are really THAT COMFORTABLE,” wrote another customer.

“I mean, yoga mat soles? What evil genius concocted THIS INVENTION? They are so fabulous! I think they’re super awesomely adorbs—but since they are so comfy, I might’ve broken down [and] bought ‘em anyway even if I hated the way they looked,” they continued. “That says everything about how they feel on. These are THE go-to pair. I just can’t bear to wear anything but these—I swear, I’m in every day with these babies on my feet, lovin’ life!”

We can’t help but agree with this enthusiastic reviewer—yoga mat soles are a genius invention, and we’re more than ready to love life and be comfy all summer in these sandals.
