Adventure sandals have a big reputation for keeping our feet cushioned and comfortable, but they’re not exactly known for being easy on the eyes. But as athleisure becomes more and more popular, designers and OG outdoorists alike are rolling out some pretty chic and colorful sandals to stop us in our tracks. Keep scrolling for some cute sporty sandals that are amazingly comfortable, highly functional, and yes… actually fun to look at.
1. Silent D Morgan Sport Sandal,
Don’t let blisters ruin time on the trail! These rubber-soled sandals feature supersoft cotton straps (peep the cute tie-dye!) that will keep feet extra cush.
2. Crocs Classic Tie-Dye Mania Slide, $29.99
If you already have a pair of Crocs, you’re already well-aware of how comfortable they are. These colorful slides are even better — wear them everywhere (seriously) and just wash them off when they’re dirty.
3. adidas 90s Sandal, $50
It’s pretty much a given that adidas will have plenty of cute sporty sandals, but this style should be at the top of everyone’s list. With an easy slip-on style, adjustable straps and cushioned footbed, it’s ready for every summer activity on the itinerary.
6. Oka B Maxwell Sandal, $30
Show off some color this summer! These neon crisscrossed slides are made for getting wet, and the tread along the bottom will help to keep you from sliding around. All in all, the perfect sandal for spending time in the water.
7. Merrell Kahuna Web Sandal,
If you’re packing up the car and heading to a park, be sure you’re taking these colorful nylon mesh sandals. This style features air-cushioned heels to help absorb shock, along with a Vibram® outsole for traction in all weather and temperature conditions.
8. FILA Disruptor Sandal,
Inspired by everyone’s favorite athletic kicks from childhood, this extra-cushioned, two-toned sole makes a statement *and* keeps feet stable and ready for anything.
9. Freedom Moses Two-Band Slide, $45
Good luck picking out just *one* pair of Freedom Moses slides—there are enough colors and patterns for every day of the season. This silhouette may remind you of a certain iconic leather style, but this PCU sandal is actually waterproof and nonslip, so you can wear it to the pool or beach without fear.
10. Puma Game On Rider Sandal, $65
Chunky athletic shoes have already been trending for a bit, so it’s only right that there should be a breathable equivalent for the summer months. This vibrant sporty sandal features all the best parts of an athletic shoe (tread and soft insoles) and adds colorful Velcro straps for a customized fit.
11. Chaco Z Classic Sandal, $105
For those nostalgic for their childhood Chacos, this rainbow-strapped sandal will feel like a (very cushioned) walk down memory lane.
12. Villa Rouge Skylar Sandals, $99
This vibrant sandal features traction for the outdoors and stylish (velcro!) details that make them totally acceptable for a socially distanced adventure to the store (or just the patio).
13. Teva Arivaca Sandal, $70
When shopping for the best sport sandal, it’s always best to check in with the OG creators. Teva has been releasing top-notch adventure sandals since their trip to the Grand Canyon back in 1984. Whether it’s a solid color style you like or something patterned with pops of bright colors, you’ll def find a pair to bring along for the trip.
Pro tip: if a shoe has the word ‘recovery’ in the name, it’s going to feel like walking on clouds. This breathable vegan style is no exception. Wear ’em anywhere and everywhere and just rinse them off when they get dirty.
15. UO Sienna Sporty Webbing Sandal, $49
Whether you’re at the lake or venturing down the aisles at the grocery store, this rainbow-webbed sandal is going to make sure feet stay put (and oh-so-comfy).
