What are 3 Features of the Most Comfortable Walking Sandal?

Spring has arrived, bringing warm weather and the promise of summer with it. As we phase out our winter wardrobe and bring out our favorite warm weather pieces, clunky winter boots are some of the first items to go into storage. It’s finally time to enjoy the outdoors with things like barbecues and beach trips.

All these warm weather activities mean it’s time to think about warm weather shoes. But, you don’t want to buy the first pair of sandals you see. Uncomfortable or ill-fitting summer shoes can lead to blisters, calluses, back pain, and more. In order to get the most out of your spring and summer shoes, look for these three features that go into making the best walking sandals for women. 

The Most Supportive Sandals Have Built-In Arch Support

Many sandals can be too flexible and flimsy, leaving them with little to no arch support. A lack of arch support can lead to foot pain and other long term issues. Comfortable sandals for walking all day will be ones with sturdy and supportive arches, as these are essential to maintaining positive foot health. 

Look for sandals with arch support for walking built right in the design to keep your feet happy during those long summer days. Options like Genie are comfortable, stylish sandals with amazing support from the Taos Soft Support™ premium footbed with Cool Recovery Foam™. You can count on these to keep your feet well-cushioned and cool from day to night in the warmer months.

Proper Heel Size is Essential to Comfortable Walking Sandals

You should never sacrifice style for comfort when searching for the best walking sandals for women. There are such things as comfortable and stylish sandals. And they usually have a wedged heel. 

A wedged heel can take a casual sandal and dress it up instantly for those more fashionable affairs. The best part about wedges as cute walking sandals is that your feet won’t be screaming after wearing them. A wedged heel distributes weight across the foot, so there is no one point taking all the pressure. 

You will want to look for sandals with a wedge heel no more than ¾ inches and those with good cushioning on the sole. Carousel 3 is a perfect pick for a stylish and cute walking sandal that features a flexible, comfortable cork footbed. These lightweight shoes are the perfect comfortable sandals for walking all day, and can easily be worn for dressier occasions. With all the colors available, you can even choose what type of statement you want these shoes to make.
