We’re happy to be seeing the first signs of spring after what felt like a long, cruel winter. Okay—winter’s not all that bad, but spring is the season of new beginnings—when the sunshine gets stronger and the color palettes get brighter. And speaking of warm weather, one thing we’re looking forward to is putting our boots in the back of our closets and donning strappy sandals and heels instead.
If you feel like you’ve been wearing the same flip-flops for far too long, there’s no better time than the present to invest in a new pair of sandals. Easy to throw on and versatile enough for a wide variety of outfits, nude sandals are a must-have for every spring and summer wardrobe. We’re big believers in the power of a go-to warm-weather shoe, which is why we’ve done our research and put together a list of the best nude dress sandals currently available.

Madewell The Boardwalk Post Slide Sandal
WHAT TO LOVE: Sleek and simple, Madewell’s leather Boardwalk sandals recently got an upgrade, so they’re more comfortable than ever. These dress sandals are available in nude, brown, and black, which is great since they pair well with everything from jeans to dresses.
USER REVIEW: “These sandals are beautiful, simple, and well-made. I’m a fast walker and the hidden thong between the toes really helps keep them on.”
Dolce Vita Indy Sandals
WHAT TO LOVE: Featuring two puffy, braided slide-style straps, these sandals have pool-side chic down to a science. With a heel height just under one inch (.62”), they're both flats and sandals—and we’re thankful nude isn’t the only color they’re available in.
USER REVIEW: “LOVE! These are the perfect sandals! Easily dressed up or casual! Sophisticated, but practical! I bought two colors, and undoubtedly will buy more!”
Dream Pairs One Band Ankle Strap Sandals
WHAT TO LOVE: Let’s start with the facts: Nearly 3,000 Amazon users have given these sandals 5 stars, and one went so far as to claim these are the best sandals they’ve ever owned. But what excites us the most about these nude strappy sandals is the buckle closure (easy on and off) and the cushioned insole (comfort for hours).
USER REVIEW: “These sandals are troopers and don't show any signs of wearing down. Over the past month, I have worn them almost every day on my trip and they have survived walking over 300,000 steps, hundreds of flights of stairs, climbing sand dunes in the Arabian Desert, jaunting down the cobblestone streets of Montmartre, going swimming in Texas, and running across countless airports.”
Abercrombie & Fitch Ruched Sandals
WHAT TO LOVE: There was a time about 10 years ago when everyone we knew had at least one pair of Abercrombie & Fitch sandals. We’re predicting a comeback for A&F sandals, especially after laying our eyes on this gorgeous ruched pair.
MORE TO KNOW: One reviewer mentioned that the strap on these sandals is a little stretchy, so if you have wide feet, they may be a great option for you.
Tkees Mia Napa Sandal
WHAT TO LOVE: Here’s the tea: Out of the 70+ reviews these sandals have earned, there isn’t even one that’s under 4 stars. Maybe it’s the way the delicate straps are designed to wrap around your feet, or perhaps it’s because they’re genuinely a comfortable pair of sandals—our money is on all of the above.
MORE TO KNOW: Handcrafted from buttery Brazilian leather, these nude strappy sandals have a cushioned insole and a rubber outsole for extra comfort. Oh, and if you’re typically a half size, TKEES suggests sizing up.
Everlane The Day Crossover Sandal
WHAT TO LOVE: Is it possible for leather sandals to be comfortable? According to Everlane, yes. Their nude Crossover dress sandals feature a flexible sole and overlapping criss-cross straps made from super soft leather, so you can take on the hottest days of the year without a blister in sight.
USER REVIEW: “These are the most comfortable leather sandals I’ve ever owned. The leather is unbelievably soft! They feel so yummy when I slip my feet in them. I love them!”
Patricia Green Hallie Slide Sandal
WHAT TO LOVE: If you feel like these are familiar to you, it might be because they resemble a certain notable style from Hermés. However, this Spanish-made pair is just as exceptional as its doppelganger because of the cushioned leather sole and wide variety of colors it's available in.
MORE TO KNOW: The Hallie slide sandals are only available in whole sizes, so Nordstrom recommends sizing down if you're a half size. Also, these nude sandals have the slightest of block heels, so if you’re looking for a little extra height, this is the pair for you.
Seychelles Total Relaxation Slide Sandal
WHAT TO LOVE: Make room in your suitcase, because these slides are ready for a vacation. Crafted in Italy with a criss-cross strap, these sandals are available in four stunning neutrals and one (very cute) calf hair version. If you’re looking for nude sandals for a wedding, this might be the pair for you—especially if that wedding happens to be on a beach.
MORE TO KNOW: According to reviewers, these sandals run large. To avoid tripping over your own toes, we recommend opting for a half-size down.
Tkees Foundations Flip Flop
WHAT TO LOVE: Despite the rise of many different styles of sandals, flip-flops have prevailed—in fact, they’ve been around since 4000 BC. This pair from TKEES takes influence from minimalists with its extra-thin straps and simple, flat sole.
USER REVIEW: “These are a must. Soft, comfortable, and come in a wide variety of colors. Easy to clean and easy to pack. You only need one pair of flip-flops for vacation, and these are them.”
Tory Burch Miller Flip Flop
WHAT TO LOVE: There’s a good chance you made it to the end of this list and said to yourself, “Ah, yes, of course,” because Tory Burch’s Miller Flip Flop has been a frontrunner in the sandal world for quite some time. It’s an iconic, recognizable style that lives up to its reputation, because in addition to being comfortable, it's also undeniably chic.
MORE TO KNOW: Reviewers mention that the Miller sandals tend to run small, so keep that in mind while selecting your size. And here’s another tip: The Miller sandals are available in many more colors on Tory Burch’s website.
