my favorite everyday footwear


I’m no fashionista. I wouldn’t say I’m a shoe collector. I don’t even really know the latest in shoe fashion at all.

But I do know what’s practical and comfortable – and I wear what works for me. So today I’m sharing my favorite everyday footwear. Not dressy shoes or athletic shoes. Comfortable, everyday shoes that I keep close to the door when I need to slip something on really fast and head out the door.

And an added bonus – they’re cute. There’s an awesome variety of styles in this one type of shoe (or as they call it … they’re sandals).

They’re Sanuks


No – this is not a sponsored post. Sanuk hasn’t sent me any footwear. I really don’t know much about their company, and I’m pretty sure they don’t know mine. I’m just a girl who loves comfortable, cute, easy footwear.


Maybe it’s the way the inside of the shoes feel. Maybe it’s the fact that it takes me about 2 seconds to put them on and take them off (since I’m always running out the door fast, and I always take my shoes off at home).


I have a few pairs of these. Variety is the spice of life. I’ve picked up a pair at the store (they can be found in so many stores), and I’ve gotten a couple pairs online (I know Amazon and Zappos both carry them, for example). I have found their sizing to be consistent and since I know that size 8 is what works for me, I can order online. Otherwise I’m not much of a buy-clothes-and-shoes-online type of shopper.


It’s almost shorts weather here in Arizona again (for real – where did our winter go?). And I think these would be cute with shorts, too.


The first pair of Sanuks I got (thanks to a friend’s recommendation) were flip flops a few years ago. The most comfortable pair I had ever had in my life. Now I have a couple pairs of flip flops, a few pairs of the shoes, and David’s on-board with a couple pairs of Sanuks for himself. We’re trying the ones for kids now, too. We’re fans.

    Our weather is border winter and spring. Cool mornings/evenings and warm afternoons. Gotta love California weather! Can you tell me Becky, is there any arch support in these dillys? Unfortunately wearing flats with little to no arch support tends to give me low back pain…so darn cute!!

    • Brandi Nielsen says:

      Because they are made of yoga mat material, they almost form to your foot shape. Compared to other flats I own, there is a noticeable comfort & support difference in the pair I own. And yep – I too have lower back problems :)

  2. Shelby says:

    I LOVE Sanuks! Amazon will often have them for half price :)

  3. Kim says:

    I love the polka dot khaki pair! Do you know what they are called??

  4. Kristi B says:

    I am a huge fan of Sanuks, too! I found them at a resort in FL when I was pregnant several years ago, and they were the only flip-flops I can wear while pregnant. Now they are all I wear in the summer. I’ve even been known choose them over running shoes for walks!

  5. Dawaila says:

    My Husband just bought his first pair of flip flops they are Sanuks, since we have the same size feet I keep putting them on! Off to look for my own :)

  6. Love your Sanuks. I wear comfortable shoes and sneakers every day because my lifestyle is casual. I will be looking for a pair of Sanuks in my local shoe stores. Thanks so much for sharing. I hope you have a wonderful time in Australia.

    My teenage boys have five pairs of Sanuks between them. They wear them all the time. I guess it’s about time for me to try a pair out too. :)

  8. Kim Kern says:

    They are very cute. But for the price I am wondering how long they last???

    • Brandi Nielsen says:

      I have had my flip flops for almost 2 years now and they are holding strong. Nordstrom Rack carries these as well, which makes them slightly cheaper.

    Thanks for this cute shoe post, enjoyed it!!

  10. Andrea says:

    I love Sanuk flip flops. I had the orange ones until my dog ate them. :( They must taste good too because they are the only shoes she has ever chewed on.

  11. Karen says:

    They are so cute! I read reviews on Amazon and some say to order the next size up and some say to order down. Any advice?

    • Brandi Nielsen says:

      My size was true to size, but I know Becky once said that for her husband, David, they had to order a size up.

  12. Tammy La Habra, CA USA says:

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Sanuks. I was online looking for a new pair today! They are so comfortable and wash great! Thanks for sharing!

  13. I’m always looking for comfortable, cute slip-on type shoes. These look like they fit the bill perfectly. Thanks for sharing, Becky!

  14. Whitney says:

    Thanks for the review! I found a pair on Amazon in a giraffe print that are absolutely adorable. I can’t wait for them to arrive!

  15. Aimee Chester says:

    I call Sanuks, Disney shoes. That’s how I gauge their comfort. There’s walmart comfort…quick run in, run out….then there’s on your feet all day with no where to sit shoes….thus, Sanuks.

  16. My husband is a big fan of Sanuks. His brother in law teases them because they look like he tied “rags on his feet” but he swears they are the most comfortable things around. I’m a total flip flop girl, although that red pair of Sanuks caught my eye!

  17. Jennifer says:

    I tried a pair of Sanuk flip-flops that I wore for all the time for two years. When they started to flatten I tried a pair of Croc flip-flops and actually found I liked them BETTER! I was shocked because I’ve always poo-pooed Crocs. However, the foot wants what it wants!

  18. Charmayne Bowling says:

    You should really try the yoga mat Sanuks ~ I think they are more feminen and the souls are made of yoga mats. So comfy!!! I’m a lover of Sanuks but mostly stick to the yoga mat ones now.

  19. Thanks for the auspicious writeup. It in truth was once a amusement account it.

  20. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what
    youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  21. Very good blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums
    that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get advice from other experienced individuals that
    share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
    Thanks a lot!
