The Ultimate Guide: Awesome Summer Sandals on Trend 2024

The Ultimate Guide: Awesome Summer Sandals on Trend 2024

It's a warm one this week and we're glad to finally feel like the dog days of summer are upon us! We've been shopping around for our favorite summer sandals of 2024, and we have narrowed it down to these 6 styles. There's some great deals happening now that you don't want to miss! Most of these styles are versatile enough that they can be worn with sporty outfits, casual dresses, or you can pair them with your swimsuit and cover-up on the way to the water. 

1. Reef Vegan Leather | 2. Crocs Tulum Flip-Flop | 3. Keen Sandal | 4. Oofos Cloud Sandals | 5. Sketchers (Bob) Sandals | 6. Crocs Brooklyn Sandal

1. Reef Vegan Leather Slide-on- These are basic and the most practical sandal, but feature a signature cushion bounce technology in the soles that make it feel like walking on a yoga mat, or one of those foam squishy rafts. They're amazingly comfortable and made of vegan leather (helping the price point). You know we're here for the comfort, right? Who wants uncomfortable sandals? Thumbs DOWN! 

2. Crocs Tulum Waterproof Flip-Flop- Who ... who knew that Crocs actually make shoes that look good on your feet?!  These are the most budget-friendly summer sandals at under $20. They are a flat and super casual slide with a fun fashionable look. The waterproof heavy-duty rubber makes them durable yet functional. Plus, they're available in fun colors too!

3. Keen Canvas-Strap Sandal- Made of a thick canvas material, these Keen sandals have a soft cushion sole making them super comfortable for long walks or adventures. Ashley ordered these earlier this summer and tested them out on our recent trip to St John (one day soon we'll write up a blog post about that)! They're easy to slip on and off since the back strap just stretches over the heel. These come in several colors.

4. Oofos Waterproof Cloud Sandals- Originally invented to be athlete recovery sandals, these are the ultimate "oldie, but goodie" sandal... yep, we said it. These relieve stress on the joints and back to help absorb impact and cradle the arch. They continue to improve their design aesthetic and even brought on some bright new colors this year like this baby blue, or the purple is my next fav! One of their most popular sellers is the atlantis ombre blue pair. Kim & Matthew have these and rave about the comfort; they have great arch support and truly provide all day comfort. 

5. Sketchers (Bob) Olive Green Sandals- A simple raw edge wedge sandal that can easily dress up or down any outfit. We're in love with these fun but simple wedges.  Kim put these to the ultimate test when she took these to Italy with her and was able to comfortably walk many miles in them. The style looks great with shorts, jeans, pants and dresses. The sole has extra cushion with decent arch support to ensure max comfort for all. 

6. Crocs Waterproof Smooth-strap Brooklyn Low-wedge Sandal- These are a summer essential sandal that's casual and waterproof. Crocs has really stepped up their style game to get competitive with other brands. The strap on these is fun and different with a double-bead closure. 

We couldn't do a sandal article without mentioning our tried and true favorite sandal styles from the past few seasons.  

The Reef Fanning Sandal- Featuring the bottle opener in the bottom, these are a boating essential sandal and stay put on the foot to prevent slipping and falling on wet spots. True game changer for us lake life folks!

The Reef Vista Hi Platform Sandal- Fun fashionista-style sandal in solid colors or a variety of fun patterns.  The rugged heel provides an excellent non-slip base and these are so versatile in style and look good with shorts, dresses, jeans, and pants.

Tory Burch Miller Cloud Sandals- New seasonal color options are introduced each year, but they keep the basics in the line as well.  We have loved the traditional Tory Burch Miller sandal style since we first learned of this designer, but a couple of seasons ago, they introduced the Miller Cloud style shown here.  They are made with the softest genuine leather and an ergonomic molded footbed similar to what a Birkenstock sandal feels like on your foot. We love that you get the Birkenstock comfort with a more elevated/upscale look with the iconic Tory Burch logo.  There are a couple of fun colors currently on sale plus an extra 25% off!  If you have ever wanted a pair, this is a great time to snag them.

If you have been on the hunt for the perfect sandal to update your summer wardrobe, we hope you found these comfy, yet stylish recommendations helpful.  Don't forget that many of them are on sale now and the best colors and most common sizes will sell out first.  Have you found a sandal style you have fallen in love with this season?  If so, we would love to hear from you ... maybe we need to check it out as well.
Happy Shopping!
