30 Perfect Summer Sandals Under $30
A killer pair of hot-weather kicks doesn't need to break the bank.
Whether your summer plans involve lazy days lounging by the pool or trekking around a new city on vacation, there’s one seasonal essential that can make or break your outing: the right footwear. But spending $100—or even $50!—on a pair of sandals isn't exactly an appealing prospect considering these are shoes you only wear for a few months each year. That's why we scoured the internet to find options that are comfortable, stylish, and will keep your budget intact. Check out these 30 pairs of extremely chic sandals that all have price tags below $30. Happy shopping!
