When you're shopping for the most comfortable sandals, combing through all of the options can be daunting. For instance, there are more than 50,000 pairs available on Amazon — nobody in the world has the kind of free time to check them all out. Instead of spending hours staring at the computer screen and wondering whether your new go-to summer shoe is the best you could've gotten, we did the work for you and found the best-rated and most customer-loved options on the site.

They include the controversial celeb-loved slip-ons that prioritize comfort, the Jennifer Lawrence-approved designer flip flops that you can wear everywhere from weddings to sporting events, and the hiking thong sandals that have been an Amazon best-seller for years. While they range in style and in price, what they don't differ in is comfort. Each of these sandals come highly recommended by customers who swear by the cozy and durable designs.

Our favorite pick, the Mayari sandal offers a delicate version of the classic strap that has made Birkenstock a household name.

Thousands of shoppers have weighed in on these sandals, yet they each maintain near-perfect ratings, so you can trust that they're the real deal. Below, shop the 10 most comfortable sandals on Amazon, with prices starting at just $30.

These Are the 10 Most Comfortable Sandals on Amazon:

Best Overall: Birkenstock Mayari

Summer Flats Amazon 2021

When it comes to sandals, few brands have the kind of name recognition that Birkenstocks do — and this popularity is warranted. The "ugly"-yet-comfy shoes have been around for decades, and the cork footbed and suede lining remain a favorite of shoppers who say the sandals are "worth their weight in gold."

The Mayari style adds a feminine twist to the classic straight-across strap design for which the brand is known. The Mayari's criss-cross look adds a layer of sophistication to the casual shoe, so they're easy to pair with everything from dresses to athletic shorts. Plus, reviewers say the cushioned EVA sole offers pain relief for annoying foot conditions.

"Honestly, they're the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned," wrote one. "Even when I've been on my feet, walking around for hours, I never feel any pain or fatigue. Cannot recommend these enough, especially if you have plantar fasciitis."

Best Walking Shoe: Teva Tirra

When you think of hiking sandals, Tevas probably come to mind. The sporty shoes are made for the trails: Not only are they water-resistant, but they also come with durable rubber soles, cushioned footbeds that offer stability, and multiple flexible straps to keep your feet in place without suffocating them.

"These still look clean and polished and I can wear them with hiking shorts, jeans, or dresses, which make them great for travel," wrote one reviewer. "They are also incredibly comfortable and the thick foot bed protects and cushions my feet."

Most Fashionable: Plaka Flat Palm Leaf

More than 10,000 shoppers have given these flats a perfect five-star rating thanks to the versatile design. The woven straps add a beachy aesthetic fit for walks in the sand or a casual night out with friends, and the 25 color options are an added bonus.

"The comfort of these sandals really surprised me," one person said. "Typically a strappy, flat-soled shoe like this requires some break-in and can't be worn for long periods, but that's not the case with these."

"I wear mine around the house as slippers and they feel so amazing and comfortable after a long day at work — it's a massage at every step," wrote one customer. "I also have plantar fasciitis and these have better arch support than any other slide I've ever had."

Plus, they have foam footbeds designed to contour to your foot's shape for precise cushion and support.

"The memory foam insoles are so comfortable and I look forward to changing into these after being at work or out running around in less comfortable shoes," said one owner. "This is my third pair of these and if they're still available, I'll buy them again when this pair wears out."
