11 Most Comfortable Walking Sandals for Men

Whether you’re planning a getaway or starting an at-home fitness program, a pair of walking sandals is essential. If this is a new wardrobe addition, there are some basic features to consider in order to maximize comfort.

Start with contoured footbeds that gently cradle the foot and hold it in position while walking. Here, look for styles with arch support and deep heel cups. To further secure the foot while on a brisk walk, opt for a silhouette with adjustable straps and easy to use hook-and-loop closures. For those who prefer added foot coverage, classic fisherman styles are a great option and can double as closed toe shoes.

From slides to strappy sport silhouettes, shop some of the most comfortable walking shoes for men below.
