Summertime is ideal for a variety of activities that can last all day. In order to take advantage of the great weather, vacation time, and being on-the-go, you’ll need a shoe that can withstand full days without causing discomfort. Here are 11 sandal options that are cute, functional, and comfortable.

Z-strap sandals are popular due to how they secure your feet from heel to toe. This shoe has adjustable straps, a moderate heel rise, and a specialized polyurethane footbed that provides contoured arch support and comfort.
If you need a simple go-to option for running errands, then these sandals are it. They have a low platform and thick, stretchy straps, which are both perfect for when you have a million things to do.
