The Strappy Sandal

Ella Creamy Nappa Sandal

“Aeyde’s Ella sandal is my summer wardrobe MVP. This barely-there sandal works with everything from sundresses to cropped jeans or wide-leg poplin trousers. I have them in black and just bought a second pair in creamy nappa.” —Alison Cohn, deputy fashion news editor

The Classic Sandal

The Original Sandal

“These are summer like ice cream, fireworks, the beach, or swimming in a pond. CLASSIC. And extremely modest in price. I think in their simplicity they look ritzier than they are, and I love that you can get them in a very subdued Black, Tan, or White, or power clash with your favorite printed summer dress with Shiny Pink or Mustard or Red.” —Rachel Tashjian, fashion news director

The Slide Sandal

Obi Slide

“I live in these sandals all summer and when I’m on vacation. They’re super comfortable and I love that they’re not too flat. I like barely there sandals on other people, but I personally prefer a shoe that’s a bit more substantial.” —Kerry Pieri, contributing fashion editor

The PVC Sandalwood

Vivi Lucite Mule

“I was in search of a PVC sandal that was also comfortable (critical aspect when searching for a shoe and being a New York City resident), and this Larroudé pair checks both boxes. Not only does the low heel make it easy to walk in , but the vinyl doesn’t dig into the tops of my feet. Plus, the neutral color palette means these sandals play well with any color in my closet. My favorite way to wear them is with a beige linen blazer or short to match the tan leather in the shoe.” —Katie Intner, assistant beauty editor

The Minimalist Sandal

Hope in Black Lizard Print

“These are the perfect minimalist sandal—spare and elegant enough to dress up with a slip dress, but they also dress up a T-shirt and jeans.” —Leah Chernikoff, executive editor

The Luxury Sandal

Chypre Sandal

“Lo and behold! These are the best investment sandals. They have a sleek design for a comfortable casual look. I’m obsessed. They go with everything. Dresses, skirts, jeans. Simply perfect. I believe in investing in your accessories. These shoes will carry over from summer, spring, and even some fall days. Hermès never fails!” —Alicia Banilivy, fashion and retail credits editor

The Pillow Sandal

Absolute 40

“Tamara Mellon’s pillow top line is my go-to for the most comfortable, yet luxurious shoes. For summer, I’m obsessed with the understated look of this two-strap slide. Not only can I wear it with nearly everything, I want to wear it with everything: The memory foam soles are so soft, I can walk in them all day. No exaggeration.” —Halie LeSavage, fashion commerce editor

The Fisherman Sandal

Fisherman Sandal

“I did not think I’d ever buy fisherman sandals but, alas, I succumbed—and I have no regrets! Everlane’s version is extremely well made and durable for coming in under $150. I love wearing mine with linen trousers and breezy sundresses for conquering my warm weather errands.” —Bianca Betancourt, culture editor

The Kitten Heel Sandal

Leather Flip Flops

“Comfort and style don’t have to be mutually exclusive if you find a reliable pair of kitten heels. In particular, the sophisticated look of these Totême heeled thong sandals, which come with padded insoles, make it the perfect finishing touch to any breezy summer outfits.” —Chelsea Sanchez, associate editor

The Platform Sandal

Carlene Sandal

“I’m all in on platform sandals this summer, which is why I snagged this versatile pair in black—which are currently on-sale—from Steve Madden. Not only do they match everything in my wardrobe, but they’re also extremely comfortable and a bit more elevated than a traditional flip-flop, making them perfect for every day wear.” —Tiffany Dodson associate beauty commerce editor

The Leather Sandal

Stamp Natural Leather

“I love how effortless the K.Jacques sandals are. They’re timeless, classic, and easy to pack—and will forever be in my summer wardrobe.” —Jaclyn Alexandra Cohen, fashion and accessories editor

The Tried and True Sandal

Arizona Soft Footbed Oiled Leather

birkenstocks never go out of style for a reason. They’re so versatile that you can throw them on with sweatpants to walk the dog or with a linen set to go to brunch. Once you break them in, they’re pretty comfortable and because they’re made to last, they’ll be a staple in your wardrobe for many years to come. Please don’t judge me if you see me wearing Birkenstocks with socks—turning them into a winter staple too. —Mariah Morrison, senior social media editor

The New Arrival Sandal

x Matisse Alia Platform Sandal

“I love a platform shoe no matter the specific style at hand. L*Space and Matisse made the perfect, simple summer sandal that’s sleek and minimal while providing a little bit of an extra lift.” —BB
