19 Stylish, Comfy Sandals for All Those Summer Weddings
With warm-weather weddings (and outdoor happy hours, concerts, and dates) on the rebound, we’re faced with the age-old dilemma: finding dressy sandals that are flattering enough to wear as wedding shoes and formal event shoes and that are comfortable enough to withstand hours of wear (not to mention dancing). It doesn’t seem like much to ask for—finding comfortable wedding sandals—yet it’s somehow a seemingly impossible task.
The problem with most formal-event sandals is that the heel is often too high, leading to exhaustion minutes into wearing them, or a twisted ankle, and made of stiff materials that dig into the heels and crush toes, causing blisters. But weddings and parties are serious business, often lasting hours, with a copious amount of mingling that requires standing and walking (not to mention mask wearing). You need to find the best wedding shoes and wedding sandals you can—ones that are neutral enough to draw attention to you and your outfit, dressy enough to not stick out, and supportive and comfortable enough to withstand marathon get-togethers.
Luckily, there are many beautiful, cushioned, low-heel (or flat) sandals that are great for summer weddings and dressy occasions available at Amazon, Nordstrom, Madewell, and more—many of them versatile enough to wear more than once a year. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best-selling, best-looking, best-feeling sandals for enjoying yourself at warm-weather weddings (whether you’re the bride or a guest) as well as in other formal settings.
