Finding office-appropriate summer sandals is a yearly challenge. You want something that will let your feet breathe, yet keeps your toes covered so you don't feel like you're rocking flips flops at the board meeting. You want them to look polished and professional, yet cute enough to transition to post-work happy hours. And since more hours of daylight means longer days, you want a pair that's comfortable enough to carry you through. We get it. This year, we think we've found a sandal that checks all of these boxes (and then some—hello, cute colors!): Everlane's new Editor Slingback ($155,

Designed as a summery take on Everlane's popular Editor Heel, the silhouette is sleek and modern, with an elegant pointed toe, a low vamp, and a stylish suede exterior. The elasticized slingback strap keeps these shoes from slipping off, whether you're running to a meeting or chasing after your little ones at the park. Plus, these heel-free flats are comfy enough to wear from morning to night.

While the adorable style and no-heel comfort would be enough to win these shoes a spot in our closets, the cute color options are what guarantee them a place in our summer shoe rotation. For neutrals, beige and black suede go with absolutely everything, while trendy rosewood and mustard are pretty options that are sure to turn heads. And if you're worried about muddy spring days ruining the suede finish, don't worry, the exterior is pre-treated with a protectant so it's easy to wipe clean with a cloth.

As this spring takes its time warming up, we're dreaming about the days we can slip on these slingbacks and wear then with everything from spring dresses to work pants. Our recommendation: don't wait until the mercury rises, snatch up your size in your favorite color before they sell out.
