Apart from an occasional sneaker moment and maybe a loafer or two, I’ve officially entered the season of wearing nothing but sandals. Whether it be an easy pair of slides, a cool platform pair, or a stunning strappy number, the only shoes I care about wearing and therefore shopping for are the open-toed kind. As such, I’ve taken to doing some deep dives into the very best sandals that summer 2022 can offer. Well, on a budget, that is.
Now that retailers have begun to drop their summer collections, I’ve spent my time scrolling through page after page of trendy new sandals (all in the name of research!), and I simply can’t hold in my excitement any longer. I’m straight-up losing it over these 31 affordable sandals. Continue on to see the pairs that are getting me excited for summer, from gorgeous ankle-wrap pairs I’d gladly wear to a wedding to the new Birkenstocks I think fashion people will be all over—all delightfully under $150. Happy shopping!
