I Refuse to Wear Sandals With Heels—Here Are My Favorite Flat Ones to Buy

At 5’10” it’s safe to say I don’t need any more height, but I also have plenty of other reasons for staying away from heeled sandals right now. Like many of you, I pretty much started denouncing fussy clothes the second week of quarantine, so I’m fully committed to all things baggy, fuzzy, warm, and cozy. As far as I’m concerned, making the leap from house slippers to real sandals will be hard enough, so why add in heels? 

Below, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite flat sandals on the market right now. I included plenty of under $100 versions, including the perfect strappy white sandals and my ideal pool sides. In case you’re ready to splurge, I also included some fun new Gucci shoes and the oh-so-coveted Bottega Veneta sandals. Scroll down to shop my picks.
