We expect A LOT from our summer sandals. They have to be cute and comfortable enough to live in — a 'second skin' that we can wear out on the patio or to the beach without putting in any thought...and without getting any blisters. Oh, and they have to be tres affordable. There are very few sandals that actually live up to this standard, but we think we've found one that checks every box: the Sanuk Yoga Sling 2. And if it's time to switch up your summer sandals, you can't beat the deal that Amazon is offering right now: They're just $17, down from $40!
The Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 shoes feature a two-way stretch knit upper and sling comfort construction on top of a rubber sponge sole made of real yoga mats. And even thought they're called yoga sandals, you don't have to be a yogi to let your feet sink into these babies — more than 15,000 Amazon shoppers have already given them their five-star seal of approval. Sanuk sandals are also much classier than your typical flip-flops and go with nearly everything in your closet. Even better? They make the perfect travel shoe.
“I bought these shoes because I needed something comfortable, stylish, and supportive for a trip to Vegas,” wrote one five-star fan. “We walked over 25,000 steps a day (for five days) and my feet never hurt. These shoes held up great and I love how easy they are to slip on and go.” Another shopper raved about taking these sandals to Florida. "I racked up a whopping 68 miles across six park days in Disney World wearing only these flip-flops."
"I get compliments on these literally every time I wear them, which is every day in the summer here," a savvy shopper reported. "I was looking for something more stylish and supportive than regular flip-flops, and these are great. I have worn them on an extensive walking trip (San Francisco) with no foot fatigue at all. I bought a pair for my daughter, recommended them to friends and strangers and will probably buy another pair in a different color before the season is out."
Shoppers can't get enough of just how comfortable the Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals are. Their enthusiasm is infectious (*adds two pairs to cart*). "The moment these amazing sandals/flip-flops were placed upon my feet, I swear I could hear my little tootsies SING!" gushed one rave reviewer. "I have plantar fasciitis, and so I need supportive, cushy footwear. My feet are also a bit on the chubby side, so I can't wear "normal" sandals because they are always too tight.... These sandals are perfect! They look dressy enough to wear with a nice summery dress out to dinner, and yet not so stuffy that I couldn't throw on a pair of short and a T-shirt and head out to the park. They are a DREAM to walk in!!!"
For summer style, versatility is what shoppers rave about. "They are comfortable for all-day wear, and go with both casual and dressy attire," shared a delighted shopper. "I've worn them with boyfriend jeans, maxi skirts and even a Mother of the Bride outfit for a rehearsal brunch." Another shopper says she'd live in these sandals if she could, and wrote that they're stylish enough to impress her fellow students: "I’m studying architecture at an expensive private university, and these are stylish enough even for the design majors I know and for the campus fashionistas."
