A Danish shoe manufacturer, ECCO makes some of the best walking sandals for women.
It’s my go-to brand, and I’m a great ECCO fan. I have narrow feet, and ECCO is the one brand that usually always fits well. Without fail, I find their shoes and sandals to be comfortable and long-lasting.
These ECCO Flowt Strap sandals come with soft leather uppers and a cushy microfiber foot bed. The sole is light and flexible, but thick and durable.
You can easily get in a couple of miles of walking (or more) in these city sandals!
The neutral colors (light brown, warm grey, black, etc.) are versatile and go with most everything.
If you need a pair of waterproof sandals for watersports or a “wet” hike, look no further than Teva – they’ve captured the market in sandals for outdoor adventure.
The Teva Tirra Athletic sandals have grippy rubber soles (to help prevent slipping when fjording streams, for example). The straps around the ankle and across the toes are adjustable and close with velcro.
You can get them in grey-and-white, royal blue, “plum truffle” and many other colors.
Said to be some of the best walking sandals for travel (especially adventure travel), women just plain love them for getting out and about in the great outdoors. See umpteen rave reviews here.
Made of soft leather, the ECCO Flash T-Strap has a lightly cushioned sole. The dove grey is a great neutral summery color, but you can also order them in black, metallic grey or a powder-and-grey combination.
I have a similar model, and I can wear them all day (and night).
These are sandals you can truly walk in – definitely tops on my list of best sandals for traveling!
OluKai is a Hawaiian brand focusing on durability and comfort. With Hawaiian origins, the sandals are surfer-chic in style.
The straps in these OluKai Upena Gladiator sandals are adjustable via an antiqued metal buckle. Uppers are leather, the footbed is contoured and the outsole is rubber, with a traction grip (to prevent slipping).
They come in many different colors – from sand, mustard-and-metallic-gold, black, and coffee to my favorite, charcoal-and-pewter.
That’s our hand-picked list of the top travel sandals!

Hi! Which sandals are shown in the photo just above #1 with the brown crossed buckled straps and white strap across the toe area (model wearing yellow nail polish)? Thank you for the helpful suggestions!

Those sandals are really cute, aren't they!
We couldn't find these on Amazon (or in stores here where we live). So we don't know the brand. They could be European. Sometimes there are great shoes you can only find in Europe and not North America.
Hope there's another pair you like :-).

Sandals are really comfortable. That is why I love my Birkenstocks. You don’t have to compromise comfort for style.
