Sandal For Women Buying Guide
Features To Look For In Best Sandals For Women
Fit - Many people mistakenly believe that footwear such as women's flip flops or sandals doesn’t necessarily need to fit as well as other types of footwear. They could not be more wrong. When looking for sandals, the fit is just as important a feature as it would be for boots, sneakers, and other shoes. If the sandals are too tight, they will feel like clamps on your feet by the end of the day. If they are too loose, your feet will be swimming in them and that is also uncomfortable and it makes you look very clumsy. Make sure your feet fit snugly on the footbed so that it almost cradles your feet. If you’re looking at sandals with an adjustable strap, you won’t have any problems with how they fit over your foot, but if the straps are fixed, make sure they fit comfortably.
Style - When it comes to sandals for women, style absolutely matters. Especially if you are wearing shorts. You can easily pick and choose the colors and designs but some straps can make your legs look short and stumpy. Whenever possible, try sandals on in front of a mirror to see how they look on your feet. The heels are another part of the sandals that you can be as selective as you like. Wedge heels are a look that can take you from day to night, while most flat sandals are more suited to wearing during the day. That being said, you should check out our buying guide with best wedges for women currently available. Some of the sandals for women in this selection are sporty in style making them ideal for the beach, a summer picnic in the park, or a pool party. Play it safe and have a few pairs of different sandals so you are ready for anything.
Size - Make sure your sandals are the right size. This means they must not be too big or too small. If your sandals are too small, you run the risk of your toes poking over the front edge of the shoe which exposes these digits to bumps and injuries. If your heel is hanging over the shoe, the edge will dig into your heel in a very uncomfortable way. Shoes that are too big are also a no-no as you won’t be able to walk with a natural gait. You will end up overcompensating your steps and if you are wearing too big shoes all day, by evening you will feel like throwing your sandals away. Whatever size shoes you normally buy, you should aim for the same size in sandals. This isn’t always easy as shoe size can vary from one manufacture to another, but the difference should never be more than half a shoe size.
Comfort - You should never compromise comfort for style and with the endless variety of sandals for women, you don’t have to compromise on either of these elements. Sandals, like all shoes, are a way to complete the look of your outfit so yes, style is important. However, style will seem very insignificant when you dismiss comfort. Sure, you’ll look great in the early part of the day with a huge smile on your face, but by the end of a long occasion in shoes that offer no comfort, that smile will mutate into a grimace of pain. Look for sandals that have a cushiony footbed and flexible straps that have an element of elastic in them and you’ll be smiling just as much in the evening as you were smiling in the morning.
Materials - Many people suffer under the misconception that feet don’t really sweat in sandals. Unfortunately, they can and often do. With this in mind, the materials sandals are made to play an important part in their comfort. The first part of sandals that you don’t want cheap, inferior materials is the footbed. If the material used here is cheap and plastic-like, a sweaty foot is going to slip around on that footbed which will feel awful and it won’t keep your foot stable inside the sandal. Then you also need to contend with the soles. If you are simply sitting down in an outdoor café or taking a short walk, the soles may not seem like a feature that deserves your attention. However, as most sandals eventually end up being worn near water, you want the soles to be made from good quality rubber that is slip-resistant. While you’re at it, pay attention to the uppers. These should always be made of soft materials that are flexible enough to move with your feet.
Stability - Why are people willing to spend big on sneakers, but not on sandals? They want the protective, supportive and stable elements in sneakers but don’t seem to find these features important in sandals. Yet if you live in a warmer climate, you may end up wearing sandals far more often than you do sneakers. Summer and sandals go hand in hand with water and sunshine. If you happen to get your feet wet, stability is crucial. If you are planning on wearing sandals at the beach or anywhere near water, make sure the footbed cradles your feet and that the soles are made of quality rubber that offers traction. If you are a running enthusiast, you can even get a pair of running sandals. Don’t forget that you may end up wearing these sandals all day and with the summer days being longer, you want sandals that give your feet stability, comfort, and cushioning. Check out our buying guide for best pole dance shoes.
It’s time to get out of the house and enjoy the summer sunshine while you can, so put your feet in a fantastic pair of sandals for women like the ones in our selection and step out in comfort and style. Sandals have been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years and they just keep getting better and better. Give your toes wiggle and free them from the confines of thick socks. Before you do, book yourself in for a pedicure and treat those cracked heels. The only thing worse than being in the wrong sandals is not giving your feet a bit of care before you expose them to the world.
