12 Comfortable Shoes for Summer

Elsa Ballet Flats with Memory Foam Insole

How adorable are these ballet flats for summer? The beige mesh with the little stone details all over is a very trendy style at the moment. Some ballet flats can be a little painful to wear all day, but these are made with a memory foam insole to keep your feet comfortable. The best part about these flats is the price point – I can’t believe how cute and affordable they are!

Ivy Sneaker

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, it would be a crime if I didn’t include my all-time favorite pair of white sneakers in this post about comfortable shoes. If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know how passionate I am about these! I’ve owned these sneakers for years now, and I’ve even repurchased them because of how good they are. They are comfortable, dependable, and easy to clean should they get dirty. They are built to last, so if you have an event or a trip coming up where you’ll be on your feet often, these walking shoes are perfect!

raffia platform heels

When you first think of a platform heel, the word “comfortable” might not come to mind. However, in my experience with these raffia platform heels, I’m happy to report that these are truly comfortable! The insole of these platforms is made with a memory foam material that sets them apart from other platform-heeled sandals. They’re easy to slip on and off with their open-toe and back design as well. These platform sandals are great for elevating any summer look without having to sacrifice comfort!

Mara footbed sandals

Another memory foam insole favorite of mine is this pair of Mara footbed sandals. These slip-on sandals will certainly keep your feet comfortable during casual outings. They feature an open-toe design that’s complete with a woven instep top band for a textured style. These sandals can be paired with a range of outfits from dresses to a top and shorts to create countless summer looks.

Cloudmonster Running Shoe

I recently grabbed these new-to-me running shoes for my workouts, and I’ve been loving them so far! I do suggest sizing up half a size in these.

Because of how comfortable these sneakers are with their shock absorption, I plan to wear them with athleisure on walks as well as days where I might be running around town checking off things on my to-do list.
