“When it comes to summer shoes or sandals, a lot of them are hard to walk in because they are not connected to the foot,” NYC-based podiatrist, Emily Splichal, DPM, MS tells Yahoo Lifestyle. She recommends looking for sandals with straps that secure your foot and ankle for extra support, stability, and of course, comfort. But that’s just the beginning of her shopping checklist.

It goes without saying, but it’s a reminder to pay close attention to a shoe’s footbed no matter what kind of style you’re shopping for. “A lot of summer sandals don't have built-in arch support, which you absolutely need, especially if you have flat feet,” says Dr. Splichal.
