Apart from an occasional sneaker moment and maybe a pair or two of loafers, I’ve officially entered the season of wearing nothing but sandals. Whether it be an easy pair of slides, cool platforms, or a stunning strappy number, the only shoes I care about wearing are the open-toed kind. As such, I’ve taken some deep dives into the very best sandals that summer 2022 can offer, and I’m doing it on a budget.
Now that retailers have begun to drop their summer collections, I’ve spent my time scrolling through page after page of trendy new sandals (all in the name of research!), and I simply can’t hold in my excitement any longer. I’m straight-up losing it over these 31 sandals. Continue on to see the pairs that are getting me excited for summer, from gorgeous ankle-wrap styles I’d gladly wear to a wedding to the new Birkenstocks I think fashion people will be all over—all delightfully under $150. Happy shopping!
