We Found The Most Comfortable Sandals Ever For Under $30

If you’re kind to your feet in summer, they’ll be kind back. Don’t self-sabotage by skipping pedis and wearing sky-high heels. That will only result in blisters and calluses like you’ve never seen. The trick is to choose a sandal that is kind to your feet (and wallet). Look no further than the pool slide sandal.

The summer trend, as seen on Sofia Richie, Gigi Hadid and Khloe Kardashian, is also good for your feet, experts say. We spoke to Dr. Miguel Cunha, founder of Gotham Footcare and a leading podiatrist in NYC, about the shoe. The verdict is in: “Summer slides are versatile, convenient, fashionable and comfortable.” A quadruple threat!

“These shoes are somewhat similar to a surgical shoe as they have a harder sole and can accommodate more uneven and hard terrain (this minimizes injury),” he explains. “The soles are often ribbed, which allows for better traction and greater stability. They also tend to be wider than flip-flops, which is better for people with bunions, hammertoes, or neuromas.”

Well, there you have it! Slide sandals not only look cool and are uber comfortable, but they’re actually healthier, too.
