The summer weather has arrived and with more people being active outdoors, I wanted to share some of our best walking sandals for women. The sandals in this list are sure to keep you supported and comfortable whether you are running errands, enjoying river walks with friends or getting in your daily steps.
When shopping for walking sandals, comfort and support are obviously essential, but it is also good to look for options that offer adjustability, shock absorption, cushioning, breathable materials and durable outsoles with good traction. Finding sandals packed with these features will ensure they will keep up with your active lifestyle.
Here are our top picks for women’s walking sandals for 2022:
Year after year, the Ecco Yukatan sandal earns its place as our #1 walking sandal.

The durable outsole incorporates technology offering dynamic flexibility, stability as well as great grip for various terrains.
This sandal is currently available in 10 great colours. Whether you are in search of something vibrant and eye catching or muted and neutral, we have you covered in this sandal. These look great paired with any athleisure or casual summer look. Other Ecco walking sandals worth checking out are the Offroad Walking Sandal and the Ecowrap Walking Sandal.
Feel comfort and support like never before in these premium Portuguese handcrafted sandals. Our customers enjoy wearing these all year round; inside as house shoes or outside all warm-weather long. Many Zach-lovers are referred to us by their pedorthist specifically for these supportive sandals and the health benefits they offer.
The contoured cork footbed aids in naturally aligning and supporting the feet and body. With Mephisto's Soft-Air technology, extra cushioning and shock absorption is enjoyed which is not found in competing brands. They have a unique thick, durable anti-slip rocker bottom outsole, specifically designed to reduce foot, leg and body strain by propelling your natural stride.
The Zach features three adjustable buckled straps offering a perfect customized fit. The thick leather straps are strategically placed to securely hold the foot in place with minimal foot lifting. While many walkers enjoy these slides, the Mephisto Zeus offers a backstrap, if preferred.
Currently, this sandal is available in 5 great colours: black, brown, red, pewter and bronze.
If you are after a supportive sandal that can be worn in and around water, then these lightweight sporty Merrell sandals are for you! These casual sandals are sure to be your best adventure companion. They have adjustable Velcro straps for a quick, secure fit and a lightly contoured footbed which provides gentle support. The footbed is super bouncy with shock absorbing foam that feels amazing on the foot - from the first step to the last. You will love the durable Vibram outsole which performs well on dry and wet surfaces.
After something a bit dressier? Well, then the Farra II is for you! Don't be fooled by the fancy trimmer design of these as they have the same comfort and support as many sport-inspired sandals. These podiatrist-designed sandals feature a cushioned biomechanically constructed orthotic footbed so you know you are getting what your feet and body need. These sandals also have a flexile rubber outsole to offer traction on all your summer outings.
The three metallic medallion details makes this walking sandal a real eye catcher! The T-strap can also be removed to get a second more casual, simplistic look.
You can find the Farra II in black or white.
Another fashion-forward, dressier walking sandal option is the Trophy by Taos. These cute leather comfort sandals are loved by many women and have quickly become a favorite. They are fully adjustable, super comfortable, and provide the needed arch and metatarsal support. An added bonus is that these sandals have a special treatment on the premium soft microfiber linings to protect against bacteria and odors.
