Best Nude Flat Sandals
Vionic Farra Sandal
A veritable reader fave, these Vionic nude sandals flat style are beloved for their look and comfort. The cork and synthetic upper and adjustable straps make these feel and fit well and the footbed is designed to help overworked feet.
And of course, the rubber sole is uber helpful when walking on surfaces. But our favorite feature is the pretty metal decorative accents which make this sandal versatile from day to night.
One wearer raves about her Vionic find, “These shoes are my new favorites. I bought them because they were pretty AND had arch support. When I tried them on, they exceeded my expectations. All of the straps are adjustable, so they feel custom made. The footbed is suede and the straps are so soft. They feel like buttery soft angels caressing my feet!”
Also, check out our review on another super popular sandal—the Vionic Kirra!
Aerosoles Strappy Sandals
With a synthetic sole, the outsole is a soft cork and there is Core Comfort Technology built-in, including breathable lining. One review says simply, “Cute and very comfortable nude strappy flat sandals!”
And don’t stop there! Check out our review on the popular Aerosoles Conchlusion Gladiator Sandals!
Blowfish Malibu Granola-b Flat Sandal
Blowfish nude ankle strap sandals like these pretties will feel lovely on your feet with a contoured footbed and wearers say they’re wonderful for long periods of walking.
Reviews for these are overwhelmingly positive, with one saying, “I LOVE these strappy nude sandals. I bought them before a trip to Italy and wore them occasionally for a few weeks before we left to make sure they were comfortable, then wore them for six days of walking close to 50 miles of cobblestone streets, endless sidewalks and grassy fields. I never got a blister or any rubbing, and the sandals still looked great, showing no signs of wear or tear. Since the trip, I wear them regularly and they still look and feel awesome.”
A New Day Kallima Slide Sandals
You wouldn’t normally think of a slide-type for travel, but perhaps the criss-cross and toe straps of these adorable faux leather Target nude sandals might change your mind! They can hold in your feet fairly well.
The open back means you can slip them on and off (maybe to feel the sand between your toes), and the flat sole is designed so it makes walking easier and comfortable. One review speaks volumes about these and says, “Comfortable and cute! Fits well and I get a lot of compliments on them all the time.”
Bare Traps Kylie Gladiator Sandal
Upon appearance, these seem hard to take on or off, but these gorgeous Bare Traps nude gladiator sandals are a breeze to get out of because of the hook and loop snap closure, so great when at the airport.
Wearers rave about the comfort of these because of the cushioned footbed, with one saying, “Satisfied with my purchase. I like the comfort. I can walk a reasonable distance with support and still look stylish,” while another one adds, “I love the comfort of these shoes. They’re great for every day.”
Best Nude Thong Sandals
Aerosoles Art Chlub Thong Sandal
This lovely contrast colored nude flat sandal by Aerosoles has a sturdy rubber sole, comfort technology built-in, a rolled toe band, and breathable lining for a completely pleasant walking experience.
One review raves about these, saying, “Cute and comfy!! Wasn’t sure how these would work when I ordered. I’m very happy with them. They fit a narrow foot nicely and the color is great,” and another user chimes in with a few simple words, “Excellent fit and beautiful in every way—love them!”
Cole Haan Anica Thong Sandals
A renowned name in shoes, the Cole Haan nude t strap sandals are simple and elegant. The leather upper and sole along with the buckle closure make them easy and comfy to wear. And they’ll literally go with any outfit you throw at them!
Wearers LOVE these, with one saying, “I purchased these right before a trade show in Las Vegas where I knew I’d be doing lots of walking. If my smart watch can be trusted, I walked almost 15 miles over five days in these sandals! No blisters, no rubbing! My feet have never been so happy after this show! I’m definitely buying a second pair in another color.”
Another user wholeheartedly agrees but does offer advice for women with specific foot issues. “Very soft leather with no rubbing or blisters. If you need arch support, this is not the sandal for you, but they work for me. Really nice.”
Sam Edelman Gigi Classic Flat Sandal
Mix things up a little with these Sam Edelman nude sandals in a flirty leopard print. Made of a cowhide leather upper and a synthetic sole, the footbed is padded so your feet can take the impact of surfaces. A wonderful neutral shoe that will pair beautifully with paperbag shorts, denim shorts, or skirts!
One user raves about her new find, and says, “Comfortable, true to size, durable, and stylish! I can walk for miles in these sandals, with zero blisters or discomfort. I receive compliments on the new nude leopard every time I wear them. I highly recommend this product!”
Another review says, “These fit great and they’re comfortable enough to walk about three miles in. The style is simple and classy. I can wear them dressed up or down.”
Ipanema Lenny Desire T-Strap Sandals
Go for something that can withstand saltwater but still look stylish off the beach. These nude beauties from Ipanema don’t rub around the toes and are durable for a sun and fun vacation.
Here are the most comfortable walking sandals that are stylish, too!
Best Nude Dress Sandals
Circus by Sam Edelman Women’s Jade Sandal
One wearer’s story is so inspirational, it’s worth sharing. “I’m disabled. I am flat-footed and have narrow feet. I can only wear flats. Every now and then I like to feel a little sexier and wear a bit of a heel. These fit the bill perfectly. The heel was very easy to walk in and stylish enough to be better than just a practical ‘block-type’ heel. That simple A-line angle brings so many trendy vibes!”
The same user happily discusses how she wore her newly purchased nude block heel sandals, saying, “I styled them with a black off-the-shoulder top and light taupe wide-legged silk culottes. I topped it off with gold, taupe, and coral drop earrings that tied the colors of the shoes together with the outfit. I wore it for my 61st birthday dinner and I received so many compliments!”
Naturalizer Cecilia Ankle Straps Pump
You can adjust fit with the slingback strap and the leather upper and sole is well made. The shoe is topped off with a cushioned footbed that has “Contour Plus” technology, specially designed by Naturalizer. You can also get this in narrow, medium, or wide widths to suit your feet.
Pretty enough for a garden wedding or a destination bound one, the neutral tone will look fab year after year. One wearer says of these, “Beautiful sandal. The wide width is perfect and comfortable. Love the heel height. Leather is soft.” And another raves about these nude sandal heels. “These shoes are very comfortable and beautiful! The touch of snakeskin adds to the beauty of these shoes.”
LifeStride Yolo Sandal
A little more simple, these nude heel sandals from Lifestride are a low height with a cushioned sole due to the LifeStride Soft System and have a slip-on/slip-off strap that’s easy to maneuver. It’s also available in medium or wide widths.
Though we have these in the nude dressy sandals section, one reviewer says these can do a lot more! “I love these sandals! Perfect for everyday use or for times when I want to look a little bit dressy/professional. I’ve received a number of compliments on them already!”
Another user shares her experience, saying, “I love the comfort of this shoe! It’s stylish enough to wear with either a dress or pants. It doesn’t hurt my feet, and the heel is the perfect height for me. I’ve been searching for a good shoe to wear this summer, and finally found this one!”
Marc Fisher Fianna Sandal
Round silver studs accentuate these cool-looking Marc Fisher nude open toe sandals. The slim, adjustable straps and leather upper, along with the studs give this a chic, yet slightly edgy feel.
Take them for city jaunts or to a happening cocktail hour and pair with anything from long shorts to sleek leggings. One reviewer heaps adoration on them, saying, “This sandal could not be any cuter! I love it. Versatile and fun to wear. It’s true to size. A must for your shoe wardrobe.” While another wearer agrees, “A classic for sure. The nude color looks so beautiful on your feet and they give jeans and dresses a little more edge and dress up an outfit instantly without wearing a high heel.”
However, wearers do mention these flat nude sandals don’t have arch support so not recommended for women who need that.

Best Nude Wedge Sandal
Kenneth Cole REACTION Great Gal Wedge
When it comes to travel and wearing heels, wedges are the way to go because your whole foot will be supported as you walk on surfaces, whether it be cobblestones or slightly uneven pavement.
At a 1.5”, these Kenneth Cole nude wedge sandals will do the trick. They give some height and accentuate the ankles while looking uber-chic, yet not sacrificing comfort. They’re faux leather with a stacked wedge and a padded footbed, and wearers agree!
One review says, “I LOVE these shoes. I wanted a tan pair to go with other outfits. They look cute with almost any type of outfit and the small heel is perfect for when you want a bit of a heel without the discomfort of higher heels. Very comfortable. I get compliments frequently when wearing them.”
Another user extolls their versatility, and more, saying, “I love this sandal so much. I have it in multiple colors! I wear them with everything—dresses, jeans, capris, shorts. They’re very comfortable and stylish.”
Steve Madden Kimmie Wedge Sandal
Cute, modern, and comfy, take the Steve Madden nude sandals for a spin sometime. The heel is about 2” but because it’s a wedge-style so your feet won’t suffer and the straps are a soft elastic material.
One wearer says of these, “I can’t wait to break them out when it gets warmer. They are surprisingly more comfortable than expected and the neutral color will match any outfit. I don’t feel that the elastic is uncomfortably tight, it’s just right,” while another exclaims, “Obsessed with these shoes! Super comfortable. Super fashionable. I love them!”
Some reviews do warn that these can fit narrow, so if your feet are wide, you may want to consider adjusting size.
Skechers Desert Kiss Sandal
Super cute! These Skechers nude low wedge sandals have their famous memory foam footbed and flexible sole to walk more comfortably on surfaces. They only have a 0.5-inch height on them, so a very slight lift that adds some elegance.
Besides the usual comfort, these are wickedly easy to pair with many outfits. This wearer expresses how, saying, “Absolutely in love with these sandals!! I purchased the off white and black and plan to purchase additional colors. These are the perfect spring and summer sandals. They can be worn with jeans, pants, shorts, and dresses.”
Clarks Annadel Bari Wedge Sandals
Go full-on pretty with these Clarks nude suede sandals made of nubuck and boasting orthotic and cushioned technology for uber comfort. The easy closure strap and slingback style means they’ll stay on too! And FYI: Clark is a BIG reader favorite.
One wearer shares her style regimen and recounts, “These are so versatile. I’ve worn them four days in a row, with capris, shorts, a maxi dress, and a calf-length pencil skirt. They are light as air, my feet didn’t get tired wearing them all day, and they show off your cute pedicure very well.”
Another user also gives some great ideas with these Macys nude sandals! “I absolutely LOVE these shoes. They are so comfortable and lightweight, plus once you get the sling-back adjusted properly, they’re ‘easy on, easy off’. I’ve worn them with shorts and a tank, jeans with a multitude of tops, soft, flowy pants, skirts of various types, and I’ve even worn the sand-colored ones with my handkerchief-hem silk shirtdress (and got compliments from everyone I met at an event I wore it to).”
These are available in medium and wide widths.
Vionic Ariel Sandal
Super popular with TFG readers and travelers, these 2.75” Vionic nude strappy sandal heels are a stylish option that’s equipped with a built-in orthotic and adjustable straps.
The gorgeous pattern and espadrille look invoke sunset walks on a Malecon and days under the sun in a flowy summer dress and a pretty hat. One reviewer says, “Love these nude sandal wedges. A summer shoe that’s comfortable enough to wear for dinner, shopping, even dancing. Great arch support and fit as I expected from Vionic. I have plantar fasciitis and it’s difficult to find supportive shoes that are fashionable—a good neutral.”
Another user also shares, “This is the most comfortable wedge I’ve ever worn! With plantar fasciitis, heals of any kind are usually out of the question, but this wedge is a miracle! I wore these on a cruise, and they were not only cute and fashionable but super comfortable!”

A big fan of these had this to say, “These are so comfortable and attractive. They have decent arch support, but not as exaggerated as some other brands (which I also love),” while another wearer says, “Love this style! Could not be more comfortable and supportive!”
Reef Womens Vegan Leather Flip Flops
You can’t go wrong with the Reef nude color flip flops that are made of vegan leather and are water friendly. They even have cushion due to the rubber sponge outsole that’s built to support the arch and heel. Great beach companions, or just looking-good companions, period!
One review says, “Love these shoes! Great support and love the bounce. I have both the nude and black. The only shoes I want to wear. They hug my feet and are very quiet.”
Another wearer sounds in too, saying, “Very comfortable flip flops. I’ve always bought cheap flip flops and the support is not enough and I get really tired. These are so worth it, I can walk with these all day and don’t feel tired.”

A cross between cute and functional, these OluKai flip flops nude style are simply designed and are water-resistant to handle any outdoors or fun-in-the-sun outfit. And bonus, if you get these wet, the lining also quickly dries!

However, some users mention these are slightly narrow, so they advise sizing up.

How to Pack Those Cute Nude Sandals
Now that you’ve chosen the right ones, it’s time to pack those ladies nude sandals for your next trip! Start by selecting a container such as a shoe bag or a packing cube, then pack according to your type of luggage. See more in the video below.
Watch this video to start learning how to organize with packing cubes!
Whether you have a front loading or top loading backpack, it’s crucial to put your shoes first, at the bottom. If you’re planning to pack shoes in a rolling carry-on, remember that it stands sideways, so it’s important to note how it functions when it is upright. Most often, your shoes will need to be packed close to the wheels, so that the luggage maintains its balance in transit.
