Our Favorite Flatform Sandals Under $80

As cute as strappy gladiators are, sometimes, they’re a pain in the foot. And if you can’t walk in them, even from the car to the caf©, what’s the point? That’s why we’re in love with fashion’s latest obsession: comfort. Maybe it’s because of athleisure, maybe it’s because spindly stilettos have seen their day.

Either way, we’re pairing these comfortable, chic flatforms with everything. And we mean it: Shorts. Dresses. Jeans. Culottes. Everything looks great when you’ve literally hit your stride. And any of these pairs, which range from classic Tevas with a twist to fancier retro sandals, will serve you well no matter how many steps you rack up on your Fitbit.
