    Does anyone have any good recommendations for comfortable sandals? These would be for work. At my last job we were able to wear flip flops (it was VERY casual). I've been told that most teachers wear sandals at my new school- I'm in Hawaii, so everything is a little more laid back. I want something that looks nice, is very comfortable, and I would prefer under $50. Any recommendations?

    Thank you!

    Does anyone know if St. John's Bay sandals are comfortable? I saw that JCPenney has a lot of them on sale online.

    I bought a pair of Clark's flip-flops this summer and I'll be shopping for some of their sandals before school starts.

    A lot of teachers I work with wear Yellow Box sandals.

    I love Clark's brand. They're very comfortable.

    Thanks! I've been searching online for now. I wear the same size about 95% of the time, so hopefully they'll fit. Most of the stores I've gone to here are really expensive. I've found a few really good deals so far.

    Reef makes the greatest flip flops and sandals I've ever worn.

    Reef is what my flip flops are that I wore to my last school. They were incredibly comfortable when I had to stand all day. I looked on their website though, and it doesn't look like they have any of the nicer ones with a thick sole. I would love to have sandals that are as comfortable as those flip flops!

    I think I'm looking for something a little fancier, but I appreciate the link!

    I have some Softspots heels that are incredibly comfortable, so I think I might try to find some sandals in that brand.

    Yeah, the website didn't offer very many. My store has a lot more than that!

    Update:

    I bought two pairs of Softspots sandals from the website shoemall.com. I picked ones that were on sale, found a coupon online for 15% off, and the website offers free shipping. I paid $47 total. I ordered them late Wednesday night and received them this morning (Saturday), here in Hawaii. I'm really impressed with the website!

    Skechers also makes what they call "tone ups" that are similar to fit flops. I have a pair of both and love my tone ups much better. The fit flops tend to fall off of my feet when I walk.

    I LOVE my Teva's!!!! I wear them to school all the time. I have a strappy pair that are dressy enough for school. I had my first pair for two years and wore them for school and summer!

    If you can find a crocs outlet, they have really branched out from their original hideously ugly clog. I've got some crocs flip flops and my wife has a number of sandals that look almost dressy.
