How to Find The Best Sandals for Your Vacation

Summer is approaching, and that means it’s time to start planning trips to the beach. While shopping for the perfect bathing suit might be at the top of your list, you can’t forget about finding the best sandals for a vacation.

A good pair of sandals can serve you well when you’re on the sand, and you can take them up to the bar, or out on a shopping excursion. But what makes a good pair of sandals for vacation adventures? It all depends on your feet and what you have planned.

Tips for Finding Vacation Sandals

Shopping for a pair of vacation sandals is a lot like shopping for regular shoes. You just have to consider the needs of your feet and the activities you plan to engage in. 

Supportive Sandals

You are going to want to find comfortable sandals for travel. An inexpensive pair of flip-flops might work well if you just plan to sit on a beach chair for most of the day, but if you plan to move from beach to boardwalk and then on to a place to eat, you are going to need sandals that offer enough support. 

Avoid Heels

Beach vacations often come with walking on sand or surfaces that are less than ideal. If you want to keep your feet comfortable, you should avoid sandals that have heels an inch or higher. This isn’t to say that you can’t bring a nice wedge sandal for evenings out, but you should probably leave them in your room when you head down to the beach.

Look for Straps

Walking on sand can be tricky. If you plan to do a lot of walking by the ocean, look for sandals that have straps. The best walking sandals for travel will be supportive, and they will have straps to keep them on your feet. That way you won’t have to deal with them always falling off your feet as you walk on the beach.

Know Your Feet

You need to know your feet. If your feet are wide, you should get wide sandals to accommodate your feet. If you have issues like bunions or plantar fasciitis, you should look for sandals that offer comfort for those concerns.
