While summer is definitely a time to relax and unwind, it’s also the perfect time for adventure, exploration, and lots of activity. Your vacation might include relaxing poolside with a drink in hand (as it should), but most likely it will also involve sightseeing and checking out local hotspots. Even if you’re not traveling, chances are you’re a weekend warrior or occasional explorer looking for new, exciting things to do.
While sneakers and other walking shoes are definitely a practical option for active days, sometimes you just want a more breathable, open-toed option.
Sounds like you? You’re in luck. We’ve put together a handy list of some of our best-selling and top-performing women’s active sandals perfect for busy summer days, so you can focus less on your feet and instead enjoy the activity at hand as well as your time with the friends and family you’re with.
Cobb Hill Penfield T–Strap Sandal
If you’ve got a lot of ground of cover but are still looking to make a fashion-forward statement, look no further than our Cobb Hill Penfield T Strap Sandal. This attractive black leather sandal rocks an extremely modest and sensible heel of only 27 millimeters, making it a practical yet stylish option for busy summer days.
If there were ever a sandal to prove that beauty does not mean pain, these T-strap sandals would be it. A glove-like fit is ensured thanks to an adjustable hook and loop, while an advanced EVA footbed enhances both flexibility and shock absorption to promote easier movement and reduce foot fatigue.
This lightweight yet extremely durable sandal is accented by ornamental sidewall stitching for a stylish boost and is versatile enough to be worn on a variety of occasions. This Cobb Hill favorite can be easily dressed up with a loose skirt or form-fitting dress, as well as jeans, shorts, or a romper for a relaxed yet chic look.
Cobb Hill Rubey T–Strap Sandal
If you like the look of the Penfield T-Strap Sandal but are looking for an open-toed option, the Cobb Hill Rubey T-Strap Sandal is the one for you. Available in black leather, khaki multi, and tan multi shades, this proven summer favorite is bound to win you over.
This women’s walking sandal is available in three different widths and features a no-nonsense 1-inch lift. And similar to its closed-toe cousin, these sandals come with an adjustable hook-and-loop closure for an even better fit. A durable rubber outsole ensures a longer shelf life, while a molded EVA footbed conforms to shape of your feet for increased flexibility and impact absorption to reduce foot strain, making it perfect for all-day wear.
Expertly crafted from premium leather, this versatile option features intricate cross stitching and a braided design that takes sensible summer footwear to the next level. While this attactive T strap is destined to be one of your summer favorites for active days on the beach or walks along the pier, they also come in handy for date nights, picnics, and lazy days spent lounging around and soaking up the sun.
Cobb Hill Maisy Cross Band Sandal
A playful and active twist on the classic cross band look, the infusion of comfort and style is clearly evident in our Cobb Hill Maisy Cross Band Sandal. Boasting a shimmery light khaki multi hue and trendy silhouette, this lightweight, delicate-looking yet durable favorite is the epitome of form and function.
With heightened breathability and flexibility thanks to a textile footbed cover, this cross-band sandal has what you need to propel you forward on the hottest, most humid, and liveliest of summer days.
Two adjustable hook-and-loop closures promote a more personalized fit, while a durable outsole provides the traction and grip necessary for traveling long distances and preventing slippage. A wraparound ankle strap provides extra support and stability while preventing excess heel movement, ensuring your foot stays snug and secure as you take on summer by storm.
Crafted with antiqued hardware and soft yet long-wearing leather, the Cobb Hill Maisy Cross Band Sandal is comfortable yet robust enough for all day and all night. This trendy, high performance option takes classic summer style up a notch, and it’s adaptable enough for both semiformal and casual occasions.
Ridge Circle T-Thong Sandal
Looking for an active sandal that doesn’t look like an active sandal? Our Ridge Circle T-Thong Sandal is here to save the day. This subtly sporty twist on the chic T strap, or T bar, sandal features graduated, geometric circles composed of fine leather in black, plus intricate laser cut etching designs for an extra layer of flair.
The Ridge Circle T-Thong Sandal features a microfiber lining and adjustable straps across the inset and ankle for a secure, fastened fit and increased support. A shaped EVA footbed brings long-lasting comfort and shock absorption that will have each step feeling as light as the last. A TPR outsole with ridged molding ensures an enhanced grip and non-slip protection necessary for days chock full of adventure and exploration.
This low-cut active sandal is bound to be your go-to option for effortless yet sophisticated summer style.
