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.
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 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.
The SANDALUP elastic sandals are lightweight and made to perfectly adjust to your feet without constraining them. They come in a variety of colors and are very affordable.
Looking for a sandal that is sturdy and made for more sporty activities? The ECCO Yucatan Sandal straps and adjusts to your feet comfortably. Check out the different colors and patterns offered. These are my go-to for summer hikes.
MUNRO specializes in great fitting footwear. They offer a large selection of widths in a variety of styles. The Pisces Sandal comes in W (wide) and WW (extra wide) width.
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.
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.
Looking for something a little more stylish that can easily take you from day to evening? The Amber Sandal from VIONIC is a perfect choice. Each strap is adjustable to give the perfect comfy fit.
Want to add a little height but still feel comfortable in your sandals? The Kayla Sandal from NAOT provides a soft wedge anatomic cork and latex footbed that is covered in comfortable suede.
Valerie and Joella swear by their OOFOS. Valerie says that “They conform to my feet and feel like walking through Jello, but still with good support.”
Another Sixty & Me reader, Peggy, recommended Spenco sandals. These sandals have helped with her plantar fasciitis.
Linda suggests SAS Duo Quarter Strap Sandals. She says that they are incredibly comfortable and have great cushioning while still providing support.
Christa is a huge fan of Skechers sandals. She says that they are like clouds for her feet and that they are super durable.
Thanks for all the recommendations!
