Summer is the season of blisters, aching arches and surprise foot pain. It sometimes seems like there simply aren’t any shoes out there that can actually make your feet feel good, but it doesn’t have to be this way! We’ll be paying for our painful shoe choices decades from now when we’re faced with bunions and chronic irritation, so let’s stop the cycle while we still can. From now on, keep your eyes open for shoes that provide ever-important arch support (a rarity among today’s cute flat sandals) and cozy soles. If you’re in love with a pair of flats that don’t properly support your foot, get yourself a pair of arch inserts to alleviate any arch pain and set yourself up for healthy feet in the future. Here’s a shopping list of sandals that are designed with your comfort in mind to get you started.
