Old Navy is usually my go-to when I need new shoes, especially sandals. These Knotted Twist Slides do NOT disappoint. They fit quite well (I do have narrow/regular feet and they fit me fine, but they might be tight on someone with a wider foot). The best part? They have a little memory foam, making them super comfortable for all day wear.

I like a good heeled sandal and Old Navy does not disappoint with these. These sandals have a 3” block heel, making them ideal when you need a little dressy moment but don’t want to kill your feet. They’re made with water and stain-repellent fabric, and they’re easy to spot-clean. I actually bought these for a wedding and I can’t wait to wear them! Plus, they’re good for special outings and the workplace.

  • Customer Ratings: 4.6/5

Bling on a budget. These sandals have wide criss-crossed straps and are bejewelled and ready to make a statement. What better way to dress up your lounge wear?! And, these shoes retail for less than $15, making them an absolute steal when you’re looking for cheap summer sandals.

Helpful Review: “[These] are pleather but that’s what I wanted! They are the right amount [of] simple and classic as well as a little bling. They are super comfortable but I would say if you have a wider foot, go up one size. I bought one size larger because that’s all they had in stock and they are so comfortable! I will be wearing these as my daily “slippers” during quarantine. I really like them! Will be cute with joggers or shorts!” – kingstondoh, May 12, 2020

Hello, you. The flatform makes them an excellent option for when you don’t want to sacrifice comfort for style. The contrast of the white against the black cross straps is eye catching. And, you can get them for less than $20! Sign me up!

  • Price: $24.98
  • Color Options: Black, Mustard, Tan
  • Customer Ratings: 4.4/5

Time and Tru has been a game changer for Walmart. These cork wedge sandals will give you a lift with a whole lot of attitude. Perfect for a summer wedding (when, you know, weddings can happen again), or strutting your stuff around the grocery store.

Helpful Review: “I ordered my regular size 10 and found these to be exceptionally comfortable and easy to walk in! I have somewhat wide feet but they don’t feel too narrow or pinch in any way. I got the tan version, which seems a little darker in person than the product photo. I would say it’s more of a deeper camel color and not the light taupe-y beige I was expecting. The heel height is 3.5 inches with a 1.5 inch platform for reference. I love these shoes so much I’m going back to order the black pair in addition!” – Colleen, June 18, 2020
