If you're looking to splurge, Bottega Veneta offers a gorgeous pair of woven wedges that deliver a beachy look (for budget-friendly alternatives, you can shop similar styles at J.Crew or Mango).

Best Sandals for Flat Feet: Vionic Brandie Flatform Sandal

Vionic Shoes claim to be one of the most supportive shoes ever. And we’d have to agree — along with the participants in their peer-reviewed study who said that Vionic contoured sandals, like this flatform option, effectively alleviated their heel pain. The brand’s proprietary Vio-Motion footbed technology offers what they call a “three-zone comfort,” with the trio being stability, arch support, and cushioning so every bit of the foot is balanced. The leather upper is offered in four fun, punchy hues, with a matching mid-sole stripe that wraps around the base, while the hook and loop closure on the straps allow you to modify the tightness to your desired effect. The wavy white sole is a playful detail that adds to the summertime appeal. For a pool day with friends, style these with a simple one-piece swimsuit, a caftan, and a wide-brimmed straw hat.

Cute Orthopedic Sandals: Chaco Z1 Classic Women’s Sandal

For those who like supportive soles, this popular sandal is for you. It has a durable footbed with webbed heel risers, which are specifically designed to support the whole anatomy of the foot, including the ankle, while the double-strapped polyester jacquard upper can be pulled tighter or made looser, depending on your preference.
