Summer means you’re ready to hit the beach! Whether it is a hot weather vacation, a beach wedding, or a pool-side party, having the right footwear. And when you’re ready for that grand trip, make sure you pack the comfort alongside too i.e. the right footwear. Beach sandals are a great item on that packing list!
In times and occasions like these, you would want your feet to be comfortable, fresh and cool! That is rare to find alongside lightweight and durable qualities so you really have to find the kind of sandals that will have these qualities AND suit a pretty summer dress or your desired swimwear.
However, there is an expansive range of options you can choose from! The choices can be so daunting and conflicting. That is precisely the reason why I have picked my top 10 picks for men and women to mix style with comfort! These sandals pack the necessary specs and features you need to acquire the best value of money with quality!
Top Picks for 2021
Landing the first rank on our list is REEF’s best-selling flip flops for men: The Men’s Fanning Flip-Flops! These are the signature sandal of the 3 times World Surfing Champion, Mick Fanning, and specially named after him. This endorsement by a legend makes the sandal itself legendary. The most unique and awesome part is that this sandal comes with…. a bottle opener in the sole of the sandal! Can you believe that?
With dimensions of 9 x 11 x 3.3 inches, these are very handcrafted with an immensely comfortable footbed. These are shock-absorbent as well made out of contoured compression-molded EVA foam footbed which gives a great degree of comfort and relaxation. In addition to that degree of comfort, these are fitted with a 360-degree heel airbag which is enclosed in soft polyurethane.
This enclosed airbag provides the necessary responsiveness to your feet. To triple the comfort for your feet, there is also an added padded jersey liner! Given these features designed for comfort, these sandals give great anatomical arch support. What makes REEF so unique is that they introduced a Thirst Quenching Technology which sets them apart and gives them an edge! You can never look at a sandal the same again. There is a bottle opener at the sole of the shoe named the thirst-quenching technology (TQT)! REEF is literally the only men’s sandal that comes with a bottle opener.
However, remember that based on your usage these might not be the most durable sandals for beach use. They can wear out depending on your degree of use. Overall, these sandals are a DREAM. They are economical, come at a great value for money and have a BOTTLE OPENER! That’s why they’re on TOP of this list!
With a BANG, the second runner-up on this list is enviably stylish, comfortable and durable: Flat Sandals for Women Palm Leaf by Plaka. A lot of times where style comes first, the comfort or durability factors are compromised but not here! As Plaka put it themselves, ” STYLE WITHOUT COMPROMISE”. This means that Plaka flat sandals are the epitome of fashion without worrying about compromising on comfort. These sandals are on top because they are compatible with any dress and compliment any look you want to sport this summer! Whether it is formal or just a casual beach chic.
These beach sandals are made by hand i.e. hand woven and crafted to make them so durable and incredibly vintage looking. The handmade durability adds to the high quality of these sandals especially given that they are also vegan friendly given that the highly durable rubber is eco-friendly and cruelty-free. The straps on these are so perfectly fitted to the feet as they are also woven using premium nylon which is designed to particularly decrease the abrasions causing blisters on feet.
The ONLY downside I can find and share is that I had to my actual size and a size bigger, the bigger fit me better without being terribly loose. So maybe you’ll have to order half-size up for the ideal fit. Overall, these come in a such a vast range of beautiful colors to suit any dress that you’d wear in the summers! Sport and rock the beach look in these premium quality sandals! They are also very easy on the pocket. Affordable yet a top-of-the-line look? Why not!
The third runner-up and securing a very reputable position are the Under Armour Men’s Ignite Vi Sl Slide Sandal by Under Armour. These are also imported and composed of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate which is designed to give you great comfort. These sandals promise incredible value for money especially given the reputation Under Armour holds. These could be potentially the perfect fit for you to slip them on anytime you like!
The Under Armour Men’s Ignite Vi Sl Slide Sandal is specially designed with a securing strap that ensures good grip without letting the feet wobble inside the sandals. Moreover, the footbed and the outsole are made in a way that channels the water away from the foot and keeps your feet safe from pruney toes and blisters. The outsoles are made of rubber and designed so that they have better traction for a better grip.
Like the rest of the sandals on this list suited for beach use, these are also water-friendly as they are fitted with a quick-drying one-piece performance molded EVA slide! I can’t emphasize how economical their price tag is given their durability and the name of the brand in the market! These definitely work EVERY penny you spend on them! The only shortcoming that you might potentially see, though compromising your comfort, is that they can be tight on wide feet. If you’re a size 11, you might have to size up and get a 12! Other than that, hands down one of the best pick with a very pleasantly surprising price tag!
Landing the fourth position with competitive features and incredible lightweight comfort are the Crocs Women’s Swiftwater Sandal Sport. These are imported and made out of a synthetic material called Croslite. These sandals could be the perfect fit for you if you’re looking for some comfortable sandals with great endurance during extended sporty or otherwise rigorous activity.
Packing dimensions of 10.5 x 4.75 x 5.5 inches, the Crocs Swiftwater sandals are specially designed for multi-functionality with a minimal design which makes them very easy to put on and move around in. The fact that they are VERY lightweight adds to the incredible degree of comfort that they provide. The straps are very flexible and comfortable so they keep the feet comfortably fitted while allowing the ease of taking them off too.
The flex grooves on the outsoles are specially designed in a way to increase flexibility and traction for a better grip. These sandals are, of course, water-friendly and channel the water away when you’re in the beach. I have noticed that the water doesn’t remain in the sandal at all!
The only downside that I did see to these was that even though I’ve worn them on SO many occasions, these sandals NEVER caused any discomfort BUT they don’t always go with a dress I’d like. They’re more casual and made out of a material that looks like all plastic. But if that doesn’t pose as a problem to you, these are really amazing pairs! They’re incredibly economical as well and last you so long without compromising your comfort!
The cherry topping our list and securing the last position on this list of incredible beach sandals is the Women’s Olowahu Flip-Flop by Teva! These textile-based and crafted sandals are incredible in their composition. They are equally supportive and comfortable so to allow you to walk on sandy surfaces. These don’t make your feel annoyed when you’re wearing them.
The sole on these is an EVA synthetic sole and provides good traction because of the mush traction pattern! These win the battle in being the most stylish as well. They do not make your feet uncomfortable as they are fitted with a contoured mush footbed! These are definitely beach-friendly and stylish as they have a very stylish and decorative thong strap. There are also two cross straps that are used to secure the foot to make sure these don’t slip off of the foot.
In addition, these have an incredible arch of 3/4 inches. They keep your feet supported and always hold the foot from slipping in the sandal while walking around even if it is in the sand! These come in such an incredible and vast range of colors so you can decide which one you want and suit it to your dresses. They’re also very lightweight so you don’t feel like anything weighing on your feet. And ugh, the best part is that these cost so little for the value they provide. They are incredibly economical as well!
For the downside, I could sketch out one. I experienced that these were too narrow for my actual size so I had to buy a size larger than I would otherwise. Apart from that, I absolutely adored what they looked like, how economical they were and how casual they look for beach sandals!
