10 Sandals with Arch Support (That Aren’t Birkenstocks)
“Ugly” sandals had a moment a few years ago when they were all the rage at fashion weeks around the globe, and we admittedly fell in love with their ample arch support and foot-cradling sole. But Birkenstocks aren’t for everyone and we can’t just go back to flimsy flip-flops, expecting our feet to be OK with it. So, we did some research and found these ten sandals with arch support that are just as stylish as they are cushiony.
1. Merrell Juno Strap Sandal
The extra-comfy insole is supported by a rugged outsole that can take on hours of social distanced neighborhood strolls, while the embroidered leather upper adjusts to your foot for a custom fit.
2. UGG Kari Slide Sandal
If you live in UGG boots all winter, try these cushioned slide sandals for summer. The blackless design makes them ideal for running quick errands without compromising comfort or style.
3. Cole Haan ZeroGrand Double Band Sandal
Sporty, feminine and trendy, all at the same time. These heel-strap sandals feature a cushy platform for all-day comfort.
4. Earth Canyon Ruby Slide Sandal
Anatomically contoured to match the natural arch of the foot, these strappy slides also come with energy return foam cushioning, which will add a welcome spring to your step.
5. Dr. Martens Myles Slide Sandal
Consider these sandals the summertime version of the OG Dr. Martens boots, with the same lug-soled, ‘90s grunge glory.
6. Söfft 'Mirabelle' Sport Sandal
Prefer your feet to be more strapped in? These sandals are as secure as they come with crisscrossing straps, an adjustable ankle closure and a pillowy and arch-friendly sole.
7. Merrell Roam Buckle Sandal
Merrell makes some of the most rugged hiking boots on the market, so we were honestly shocked that these sandals are so stylish. They feature a contoured footbed with all the comfort you’d expect from a performance shoe.
8. Sol Sana Lucinda Wedge
These white-and-black slides prove sandals can be both comfy and trendy—silver buckles, studs and all.
9. Keen Lana Cross Strap Sandal
These might be one of the least bulky sandals on the list, but don’t worry, this Keen pair certainly doesn’t lack in arch support. The thick leather straps won’t give you blisters but will keep your feet in place.
10. Dear Frances Tye Slide
These luxe knotted slides are handmade in Italy from 100 percent real, buttery leather that molds to your foot with every wear. Yeah, they’re totally worth the splurge.
