These stylish sandals will change the way you think of sporty summer footwear.
Sport sandals are known for being ultra-comfy and highly functional—and since they're often made of durable, waterproof materials, you can wear them from brunch to the beach without worrying about getting them sandy or wet. But they're also notorious for being, well, less than stylish. However, that's starting to change, as more and more retailers are designing slip-on slides and sporty sandals that are totally trendy, but still practical. Don't believe us? Here, eight funky and functional styles you'll want to add to your summer wardrobe.
Puma Jelly Slide Sandals
If you loved jelly sandals in the 90s, you'll be happy to hear they're making a comeback—and Puma is embracing the trend with these new slides. They feature the classic Puma logo along with a cool diamond pattern. Oh, and did we mention they're part of the brand's collaboration with Rihanna?
Birkenstock Gizeh EVA Flip Flop
One of the most popular Birkenstock styles recently got a waterproof upgrade. These sandals offer the same contoured comfort and tread as the classic version, but since they're made with synthetic rubber, they're also ready for any summertime activity.
Adidas Adilette Slide Sandal
Inspired by the classic Adidas sport slide, these simple sandals are perfect for running errands or lounging poolside. The shoe bed is contoured for maximum comfort, while the soft pastel hue elevates the design.
Jambu Santorini Wedge Sandal
With the traction of an athletic shoe but the stylish details of a summer sandal, these sporty wedges are surprisingly versatile. Whether you're going for a hike or heading to brunch, they'll keep your feet happy and comfy.
Ivy Park Mirror Logo Slide Sandal
Looking for something a little flashier? These mirrored Ivy Park sport slides will give any outfit a bold boost.
Teva Original Universal Sandal
When it comes to tried-and-true sport sandals, Teva is a longtime star. This go-to outdoor shoe is built to be ultra lightweight, durable, and versatile enough to suit any adventure. And we love that this style features fun patterned straps.
Vionic Tide Sport
Vionic took their classic arch-supporting sandals and gave them a sporty makeover. This shoe is super lightweight and easy to slip on, and they're nice enough to wear beyond the beach, thanks to leather details on the straps.
Ryka Rodanthe Sandal
Looking for the summertime equivalent of your favorite black sneakers? These Ryka sandals were designed to be just that. Not only do they have a sleek silhouette, but they also boast a slew of good-for-your-feet features, such as stretchy fabric straps (read: no blisters) and a cushioned foot bed.
