My Favorite and Most Comfortable Sandals

Wednesday, August 29, 2012
I've worn both of these shoes on the blog plenty of times, but I feel like they deserve a separate post because they're just that awesome. Lately, I've become a total grandma and been looking for comfy shoes than the ~$10 ones I used to buy at Forever 21 and Target. You know... cheap, uncomfortable, not good quality? Yeah, those. Most of the discomfort can be attributed to my wide feet (Thanks, 아빠..). It doesn't help that most wide-width shoes that are in my price range are also - how can I put this - ugly. So, if you suffer from wide feet and are sick of not finding anything cute and comfortable, I've got two pairs of shoes for you to consider! If you don't have wide feet, you can leave. Just kidding. You're also welcome in our super secret wide-feet group. Just don't tell anyone.

First up are the Bass Margie sandals. I have them in black. (You can see how I wore them last here.) I've had them for a couple years now. They are my most comfortable shoes next to my running sneakers so I wear them a lot for traveling and when I know we'll be doing a lot of walking. I've worn them so much the soles are riddled with holes. I actually have to buy another pair soon. You can get them at Amazon for as low as $25! Really good price for such good quality. I say buy two. And give me one. I'm a 7. Thanks.


Next are my more dressier sandals, the Naturalizer Fira. I have these in turquoise. (See how I wore them last here.) I wanted something dressier than the Bass sandals that I could wear out to dinner with my husband and still be comfortable and feel stylish in. I love the mix of a bold color, metallic, and snake skin. I think it makes it more matchable with a majority of my outfits. I'm actually wearing this right now as I am typing this. I've been wearing these sandals so much this summer, I'm getting some funky tan lines on my feet..


So, there you have it. My two favorite and most comfortable shoes. Do you have any comfy shoes to recommend to us? Please share! I'm always on the look out.

  3. another vote for Clarks (which also has the Indigo, Artisan & Privo line). Excellent quality, and timeless and hip depending on how you style them.

  4. i haven't. i've seen them around quite a bit. i'm not sure if they have wide widths. will have to see.. yes to all! little arch support and a cushioned footbed. my rule is i should be able to walk a few hours straight without any pains and these two sandals are perfect for that.

  5. Lol glad to hear that! I also have wide feet, so Clark's are amazing for that (I own sandals from their 'Softwear' range, with cushioned footbeds)! I tend to stick to Clark's, since I'm also sick of just finding dowdy shoes lol, but I also hear good things about Aetrex, Aerosoles & Cole Haan =] I also did a quick Google search & found sandals that look pretty cute & comfy:

  6. Tried Born or Sofft? Also, what are your criteria for comfy? A little arch support? Cushioned heel? Or fully cushioned footbed, all along the sole?

    I have a pair of Merrell Women's Micca sandals in Silver Lining. I LOVE them! So comfy and cute! I live in them when it's hot. And the look a lot more stylish than the majority of Merrell shoes do. Most of their shoes look nice but very "campy" and my sense of style isn't really "campy"

  12. Well, you are not the only one with the wide feet. Like I do have wide feet and big chuny legs as well. Oh dear! But at least I got two feet and two legs. LOL! Thanks for sharing about the sandals.

  14. I found a pair of Bass like those at a thrift store once, but they weren't my size (too big). They were $3 so I tried to make them work but they looked pretty terrible so I had to let them go :( Good to know Amazon has them for a reasonable price.
