Summer Sandals Under $50

Spring is HERE and summer is just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to share my sandal picks with you! I personally do not like to spend over $50 on my shoes (well, anything, if I’m being quite honest) but especially not sandals, since I don’t get more than a few months wear out of them. AND, ya girl likes to keep up with the trends, which can get pricey.

My go-to spots for finding the best sandals at affordable prices are Target, DSW (sale alerts), Amazon and Kohls. Here are the pairs that I’ll be living in this summer, some new-to-me and some on repeat from last year.

I was so excited to see this pair of tiger print slides restocked this year! I love a good leopard shoe, but it’s refreshing to see a different print in the mix (but don’t worry, they also come in leopard). I wore these out last summer and plan to do the same. For $20 you can’t beat having a fun pair of slip-on-and-go sandals in your closet that surprisingly match a lot and add spice to any look. 

HOW TO WEAR: I love pairing these with a graphic tee and a flouncy skirt for a cute and casual daytime look.

I’ve had these sandals for two years, and they are by far my most-worn sandals in the summer. They are almost identical to Birkenstocks but for a fraction of the price. While this exact color isn’t available this year, there are a few color options to choose from (I want the white). The rubber material makes these perfect for the pool, lake, beach, etc. And you don’t have to worry about them getting dirty -- just wipe them clean! 

HOW TO WEAR: Throw on with a swimsuit for an easy water shoe. Or, pair with your go-to shorts and tee for a summer bonfire.

I am all about a dupe, if you can’t tell! The Steve Madden traveler sandals are all the rage, but I personally find this pair to be more comfortable. Plus, I love the price! After wearing my similar tan pair all last summer, I snagged this white pair and love how they match all my summer looks. 

HOW TO WEAR: These will match any dress in your closet and look great with minis and maxis!
