The days are gradually getting warmer, which means it’s time to put away the close-toed shoes and purchase a pair of comfortable sandals. There are so many on the market, which is why it’s important to determine which ones are best for you and your feet.

It’s also important to have comfortable, supportive footwear because wearing uncomfortable shoes can have consequences now and down the line. That includes pain, an irritable mood, and most concerning, increasingly bad posture.

“If you don’t have good posture, you can develop back issues,” Altai Gear, an athletic company, explained. “If you’re looking to improve your posture, invest in a quality pair of well-fitting shoes. The shoes you wear have an impact on various parts of the body, so it’s important to wear a proper pair.”

Check out these comfortable walking sandals for men, women and children that are sure to last you all summer long and beyond.
