Best Sling Sandals for Yogis

Sling sandals take the comfort of your yoga mat wherever you go. These sandals use yoga mat material for the footbed and a hard rubber tread suitable for daily walking, travel, beach trips, and casual evening wear. Soft knit fabric wraps comfort around the foot and attaches to the footbed with a padded toe post. There’s no place where the sandal will chafe and cause blisters, even the first time you wear it. They’re perfect for stretching out the feet and toes on the way to yoga class, or for daily wear to give your feet a break from confining and damaging shoes. We’ve rounded up the best picks for sling sandals. They come in many thicknesses and styles for all levels of activity.
