With summer in full swing, it’s time to break out the sandals or invest in a new pair. No one wants to wear sneakers or closed-toe shoes in the summer. If you are in the market for a new pair of sandals, keep these brands in mind.



Rainbows are one of the best sandals out there. The leather material makes it a little uncomfortable at first, but, once you break them in, the leather becomes softer, forming to your feet. Rainbows come in different colors and styles, so there is a pair for everyone.



Just like Rainbows, Birkenstocks take time to break in, but, once they form to your feet, you won’t want to take them off. With plenty of styles, colors and materials, you will find yourself wanting to buy more than one pair.



For a more adventurous pair of sandals, check out Tevas. Tevas are a sporty sandal with Velcro straps to keep them from falling off your feet while exploring. These shoes are perfect for people who want to get out and hike, but don’t want to wear sneakers.


Steve Madden Kimmie Espadrille Sandal

If you are looking for a fancier sandal perfect for going out to dinner or hitting the town, the platform Steve Madden Kimmie Espadrille sandal is the one for you. This strappy, platform sandal is lightweight and the perfect mix between a flat and a wedge.



Vionics are a great option for people who have issues with their feet — they are the most supportive shoes. The Vio-Motion footbed technology delivers a three-zone comfort with ultimate arch support for a difference you can feel and helps to alleviate heel pain.
