Stylish Sandals for Moms

gift ideas for babies

From cozy flats to platform sandals to chunky slides, this year (and every year), we demand comfort for our overworked, overtired feet.

We moms are constantly chasing after our kiddos, and there’s nothing more offensive than summer shoes that give you blisters — nor more annoying than a sandal that takes too much time/work/effort to get on or off. (Okay, maybe we’re being a bit dramatic, but you feel us… right? Right!) 

Fellow moms, your feet need — nay, deserve — respite from “the heels from hell.” So say buh-bye to stilettos and hello to easy-on-the-foot (and easy-on) shoes. We hunted for the most comfortable sandals out there — tried and true by ourselves and all our mama friends. Any of the pairs below are guaranteed to get you from the playground to your dinner date effortlessly. Have fun!

Best Summer Sandals for Moms: Comfort, Ease, & Mobility

Cushionaire Sandals ~ $25

Put these shoes on and you’ll instantly feel like you’re walking on clouds.

Sorel Roaming Criss Cross Sandals ~ $110

These sporty-chic sandals boast a secure, strappy fit and a cushioned feel. They’re great for long strolls while still keeping you on trend (we especially love the chevron details on the sole).

Birkenstock Softbed with Suede Leather ~ $135

You can’t go wrong with Birkenstock’s timeless Arizona sandals. The added softbed feature on this version makes for extra cushion, which is divine. Podiatrist approved.

Seychelles Quilted Platform Sandals ~ $109

These platforms are romantic and cutting-edge all at once. We love the quilted straps, and the anatomical footbed forms to the shape of your foot.

Beek Platform Pelican Sandals ~ $260

Memory foam footbed — need we say more? We love the modest platform (1 5/8″) and the fact that the leather actually offers a good grip, so the shoes are nicely secured to your foot.

Alohas Marshmallow Platform Sandals ~ $170

These sandals are sure to be a showstopper! We love that this brand makes their shoes on demand, too — very eco-friendly.

Adidas Adilettes ~ $25

Want to keep it sporty? Adilettes will enter your daily rotation. The memory foam is heaven for your feet.

The Bali Tailor Oska Slides ~ $141

We’re all for chunky, cushiony slides this year (can you tell?). These ones feel like weighted blankets for your feet. You’re welcome.

Vagabond Shoemakers Erin Sandals ~ $139

Timeless and minimalist, this sandal features a molded sole that will cocoon your foot nicely. We love the monochramic look.

The Odells Puffy Slides ~ $220

We love the knot details on these, and the contoured footbed ensures all-day comfort.

Crocs Classic Slides ~ $30

We know what you’re going to say… are you kidding me? Crocs? Really? Just humor us: try them on. Comfortable as hell, easy to put on, and totally all the rage (plus, more appealing than their clogs, if you ask us).

Teva Original Universal ~ $50

If you plan on a long day of walking, these won’t let you down. The colorblock style is a nice way to add a pop of color to any of your outfits. Plus, the look is super retro.

Finding the perfect sandal to fulfill all your duties as mom, partner, friend and #girlboss is no easy feat. But these shoes will take you far (and keep your feet at ease). Let us know what summer sandals and brands you’re loving in the comments below.


  1. I love the eurosoft brand I find at DSW – I buy a new pair every other summer. And for water sandals (pool, splash pad, etc) Skechers have really affordable options. Tevas are a good upgrade pick!
