Summertime – barefoot on the beach, and relishing every ounce of sunlight. For me, choosing shoes this time of year means keeping that free and delightful feeling all day long.

When looking for summer shoes, I have quite a few criteria in selecting the ideal pair. I search for an open heeled and airy sandal that can dress up or down with ease. My eye is often drawn to a sandal with cutout patterns for breathability and slip on straps for comfort.

Also important in my sandal selection – support! Sandals with flat bottoms (and no support) leave my lower back smarting. I hunt thick soles with plenty of cushion to take me through a beautiful summer day in comfort. I like a durable fabric that can withstand long walks in town, as well as the splatter of the ocean. And when it comes to color – neutral or bold…I’ll take both!

What kind of sandals do you prefer this time of year? Share some of your favorite styles with me in the comment section below.
