29 Easy Summer Sandals That Cost Less Than $50

·3-min read

As the temperature rises this summer, your footwear choices will become increasingly limited. Boots, oxfords, loafers — all of these once-cherished styles get stuffed into the darkest corners of the closet in favor of the only shoe that you’ll be able to bear when temps are sweltering: sandals. (Sorry sneakers, we're putting you in the athletic bucket for this story.) Only the most ventilated, air-circulating styles will make the cut come July, and if you’re anything like us, you may be looking to add more than one pair to your wardrobe rotation.

One small roadblock, though, is the matter of budgeting your expenditures. While most of us would like to have a sandal for every outfit, we can’t bankroll quite that many purchases, and spend a lot of time painstakingly analyzing a single pair of slides, flip flops, wedges or t-straps. So, in anticipation of the warm weather and the footwear restrictions it will bring, we’ve rounded up the best everyday sandals for under $50. (We included options for every style, whether your idea of a “basic shoe” is a sparkling jelly slide or a woven leather flat) So click through if you’re not prepared to commit to a single style this summer — at these prices, there may be room in your budget for more than one.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
