I Ordered 11 Pairs of Flat Sandals—But Only Kept These 3

Erin Fitzpatrick

Too stiff, too expensive, too cheaply made—looking for flat sandals made me feel like Goldilocks trying to find the porridge that was "just right". I recently went on an online shopping binge while searching for the perfect easy-to-wear sandals before my trip to Cartagena, but I ended up returning them in droves. So which pairs made the cut, you might ask?

I kept Mango's Metallic Strap Sandals ($50) because they were affordable without looking cheap and because I had been on the quest for the perfect gold sandals that would go with everything (including my outfit below). I also think the three curved straps near the toe make them slightly more interesting than your basic one-strap version.

Next, I also kept Soludos's Braided Slide Sandals ($89), which are seriously one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own—I wear them almost exclusively all weekend, every weekend. Finally, our own Who What Wear Stella Heeled Cross Band Slide Sandals ($35) made the cut after I saw them on our co-founder and CEO Katherine Power's Instagram, and I knew a pair of black slides would round out my trio of shoes perfectly.
