I never thought such a shoe existed until I put these on.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve spent the past few summers of your life accepting the fact that no matter what kind of seasonal footwear you put on, from flip flops to sandals, you are going to spend the entire season with uncomfortable blisters on your feet. One of the reasons I don’t like summer is that I don’t like how ugly my feet look with big red wounds all over them or the uncomfortable feeling of a blister being rubbed by a shoe or sock when I walk.

Well, brace yourself, because I found something that I never thought actually existed: A cute, comfortable sandal that doesn’t leave behind blisters. You read that right. No. Blisters.

My feet have not been happier since I started slipping them into The Boardwalk Multistrap sandals from Madewell. Available in two colors, natural buff and black, they look exactly like the type of sandal I would try to wear every year, but they are made with a soft, genuine leather that I didn’t even have to break in. They were immediately comfortable and non-blistering from my very first wear.

Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you, since up until two weeks ago, I also thought such a product was a totally myth. But these are the only shoes I have been wearing since the day I bought them and I have no blisters. I’ve walked for miles in them to and from work and they are still just as comfortable as the day I took them out of the box. It is honestly the best $59.50 I’ve ever spent on an item, because I know that I can throw them on and leave the house and never have to worry about foot pain. Plus, they look great with jeans, sundresses, and my favorite bathing suits.

Make sure that you take care of these sandals, because you’ll want them to last you through this summer and for as many future summers as possible. You’ve been through enough uncomfortable sandals. Your feet deserve these!
