Sandals / Flats for everyday use TEST

Summer Flats / Sandals:

  • Hi Mary! I found these options for you based on our conversation. I took fashion, arch support, sustainability and travel-friendly into account. :)
    • Rothy's Maritime Honeycomb: The shoes are made from recycyled water bottles! If you don't love the pattern, click the link and see dozens of different prints. They are washable also, and pack easily. Rothy's have a fantastic referral program where you can share with others and they save on the purchase plus you earn referral credits. For your first pair, you can get $20 off with promo code XXX. Cost: $125 plus free shipping before discounts. Sizing: Size UP.
    • Tory Burch Miller Sandals in Patent Leather: These shoes are super fun and surprisingly comfortable (I have had a pair in the past and they feel like butter). If you don't love the rainbow pattern, there are other color options. The patent leather will be better with lake life and with the kids versus the soft leather but the soft leather is very nice if you can keep them away from water. Cost: $198 plus free shipping before discounts. Sizing: true to size.
    • Tieks Flats: These flats are very fun and easily packable. The brand makes a ton of color/style options, including snake skin with different colors. They have mixed reviews in terms of comfort, but many friends of mine who have professional jobs do rave about them and own multiple pairs. Cost: $198 plus free shipping, no available discounts. Sizing: Size UP.


  • I am happy to provide less expensive options. Amazon has some knock-offs for all of these types of shoes if you're interested.
  • If you want to purchase any of the above, let me know which one and your preferred shoe size. ;)
