Stylish and Durable. Whether you have podiatry problems or simply walk a lot, your feet will thank you for investing in these fashion-forward sandals. They’re style and support all in one!

What We Liked: 

These yoga sandals are supportive yet still comfortable. The cushioning is a bit on the squishy side, but with enough firmness to ensure you don’t end up with any foot pain at the end of a long day. The sandals come in 12 different colors and patterns, meaning there’s an option for every outfit in your wardrobe – from a casual shorts and t-shirt look, or something more formal (like a cotton sundress). The footbed is created from a real yoga mat and features a sealed edge. We appreciated that the platform is less than an inch tall. Get them here.

 For Stylish Yogis

Ranberone Women’s Yoga Sling Flip Flops

Footwear with Flair. These sandals combine comfort with style for footwear you’ll receive compliments on all season long.

What We Liked: 

These sandals, which come in six stylish patterns and colors and all feature accents on the toe post, are lightweight, slip-resistant, and comfortable. With a sole created from yoga mat material, the rest of the shoe is made from fabric, and the design promises minimal pressure and chafing. We found this to be true. The rubber sole conforms to the individual curvatures of your feet, so you get the support you need, no matter your foot size or shape. Plus, the thick sole absorbs shock, so you get not only superior comfort but also a good look as well. Get them today.
