10 Best Spring Sandals For Everyone Who’s Had It With Heels

Best spring sandals 2020

We’re not going to lie, we never thought there’d come a time when we would utter the words, “These are the best spring sandals and we like them as much as our heels.” But after a spring spent in nothing but flats, we’re starting to see that there is life after heels. And while we’d never completely commit to entering into a full time relationship with flats, we’re willing to entertain the notion that a girl can have the best of both worlds.

That’s because there are some situations that just don’t lend themselves to heels. Like a pool party or afternoon cocktails on a friend’s lawn, should we ever be able to go to pool parties and afternoon cocktails again. Ball games call for a spring sandal or sneakers. And a spring/summer dinner with friends can be the perfect time to break out a sparkly pair of spring sandals.

But if you’re going to replace your heels with sandals, you’re going to need a steady rotation of spring sandals that are as dazzling as those teetering heels you’re known for wearing. So dive in to some of the best spring sandals out there.

Sorry if you end up wanting them all. Actually, we’re not. Go ahead and order as much as your budget allows. Your feet will thank you even if your heels will be scowling from their new home in a dusty corner of your closet.


Best Spring Sandals

Alexandre Birman Clarita Jelly Flat Sandal

We’re not going to lie, we’ve online stalked Alexadre Birman’s Clarita Jelly Flat for about a year now.  The only reason we haven’t committed is because we can’t decide which color to get.  With seven bright colors to choose from, we’d feel so disappointed in ourselves if we settled for black.  And yet, the black couldn’t be any cuter.  The bow is Birman’s signature detail and makes this sandal a total winner day or night.

Jenni Kayne Cotton Crossover Sandal


Jenni Kayne’s Cotton Crossover has all but lept out of our Instagram feed and screamed, “Must have.”  That’s because Kayne’s best seller looks so remarkably comfortable and so completely chic.  Perfect with jeans, a white summer dress, or that cute black jumpsuit you’ve been dying to wear.



Spring Sandals

Vince Camuto Partha Jeweled Platform Slide

We are not afraid to admit we’ve never met a sparkly shoe we didn’t like.  We are particularly fond of a dressed up sandal and Camuto’s Partha Slide is the dressed up sandal that every gal needs.  It upgrade your casual look or be that totally acceptable flat you can wear out on a spring night.  And let’s face it, that molded platform footbed looks so comfortable your feet will be begging to dive in.  Heck, we’d even wear them at home all spring.  Why not?



Best Spring Sandals 2020

Soludos Cara City Sandal

Soludos sandals boast two completely important qualifications for joining a “Best Of” list.  One, they’re that basic sandal with just enough edge you’ll get asked over and over again who makes them.  And two, Soludos’ price point is in the range of won’t break the bank and will last more than a season.  We had a hard time deciding between the tan and the black before finally settling on both.  What?  You probably will, too.



Best Summer Sandals 2020

Sam Edelman Bay Cutout Slide

We spent far more time than we care to admit trying to choose the favorite color because the Bay Cutout Slide comes in everything from a silver bejeweled beauty that’s nearly black tie worthy, to patent, to this neon “Billie Eilish” yellow that we’ve come to love as much as we love Billie herself.  The leather insole will guarantee you’re not sliding around in your slide when you finally get to wear these outside.



Spring Sandals 2020

Tori Burch Daisy Sport Sandal

We spent some time debating Tori’s Daisy Sport sandal, but it grew on us with time.  We loved that this felt like a totally fresh take on an espadrille and that the Daisy would completely stand out with a white pear of jeans or cute linen shorts when our legs have had enough time to get ready for public viewing.



Best Spring Sandals

Melissa Solar Embellished Stappy Sandals

It’s not always easy to wrap your head around a T-strap sandal because it can feel like it shows so much foot.  But Melissa’s Solar sandal beckoned us with its durable, flexible PVC.  It comes in three colors, all of which we adore.  Oh and bonus tip for those new to Melissa’s shoes, they’re scented.  The Solar smells like bubble gum.  Tough to resist, no?



Summer Sandals 2020

Tabitha Simmons Nelllie-Leopard Print Sandals

We are big fans of all of Simmons’ offerings, but the Nellie spoke to us mainly because it feels almost gauche to have a “Best Of” list that doesn’t include some nod to leopard.  The strappy ankle wrap sandal will make you feel dressed up and the leopard adds just enough trend without appearing too trendy, meaning you’ll be able to wear these for seasons to come.



Best Sandals 2020

Veronica Beard Gemma Slides

Available in pink or in gold, we think the Gemma is just about the perfect slide for day, night, and everything in between.  The knotted detailed makes this spring sandal stand out while not over do’ing it.



Spring Sandals 2020

Schutz Pelinka Sandals

Chic with just enough edge, Schutz’s Pelinka gets dressed up with its crystal details.  Imported from Brazil, this spring sandal will quickly become such a wardrobe staple you’ll never want to take them off.
