8 Comfortable Sandals for Older Women

By Sandra Roussy August 01, 2022 Makeup and Fashion

Looking for a new pair of sandals? Sandals come in a variety of styles and materials and are worn for many different occasions.

Here is our list of comfortable sandals for women over 60.

  1. Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed
  2. SANDALUP Elastic Flat Sandals
  3. ECCO Womens Yucatan Sandal
  4. Pisces Sandal by MUNRO
  5. OLUKAI Ohana Beach Sandals
  6. Adidas ADILETTE COMFORT SLIDES
  7. Amber Adjustable Sandal from VIONIC
  8. Kayla Sandal by NAOT

One thing they should all have in common is that they need to be comfortable. From the beach flip-flop to the strappy cute sandals you wear out to dinner – you need to be cozy and feel stable in your sandals.

I’ve put together a selection of comfortable sandals that I feel are the best for older women. They all have rave reviews and positive feedback from actual customers. Many I have actually owned and can attest to their comfort and durability.

And by the way, some of the sandals that made it on my list won’t break the bank or compromise on style. But, I do admit that paying a little more for quality sandals will generally provide more wear time. I have bought inexpensive sandals that have lasted only a few months before they started to break down and I have also bought pricier ones that I am still wearing after several years.

Birkenstock Arizona Soft Footbed

Birkenstock has been around for several decades and is known for its comfortable footwear that is made to last. I admit I have several pairs of sandals from Birkenstock that I have purchased over the years and I practically live in them. They really do last a long time! The classic Arizona Soft Footbed model is one of their best sellers.

SANDALUP Elastic Flat Sandals

Being 60 and over doesn’t mean we throw our flip-flops out the window. Indeed, the OLUKAI Ohana sandal is the perfect tried-and-tested flip-flop that is built to last.

Adidas ADILETTE COMFORT SLIDES

Adidas ADILETTE COMFORT SLIDES

The Adilette Slides from Adidas have been around for decades and are the perfect go-to sandals for poolside or other water-based activities. Many of us have enjoyed the contoured footbed that makes these slides ultra-comfortable.
