These Cult-Favorite Sandals On Amazon Are Less Than $35 & They're SO Comfortable

Originally Published: 

Fashion’s ongoing love-affair with comfort-forward clothing (think: leggings, kitten heels, and sneakers), has given rise to an era of stylish, yet orthopedically-sound sandals. From Tevas to Birkenstocks to sturdy pool slides, styles that were once purely practical are increasingly popular among the fashion-set. They’re also increasingly abundant on Amazon. For the uninitiated, you might be surprised to know that the internet's one-stop shop for buying everything from the latest tech to bulk orders of toiletries is also a treasure trove for affordable fashion finds. In fact, some of their most comfortable sandals have amassed thousands of glowing reviews for their wearability — and at less than $40 per pair, they're easy on the wallet, too.

Whether you're looking for casual sandals to run errands in or an office-appropriate option, Amazon has you covered. All of the options curated below have earned high marks for their cushioned, often customizable fit — check out the glowing customer reviews if you have any doubts. Plus, the variety of style options is also pretty impressive. From sporty to minimalist there's a pair for every aesthetic.
