Finding a sandal that’s both comfortable and stylish can be a challenge, but even more so if you have narrow feet. Unfortunately, narrow sizes aren’t as easy to come by as you may think (or wish). But the beauty of online shopping is that, despite the fashion world’s lack of narrow-friendly sizing, there are thousands of reviews providing all the info you need to know about the best sandals for narrow feet. To make your life easier, I scoured through them all so you don’t have to.

What To Look For When Shopping For The Best Sandals For Narrow Feet


Adjustable straps are an essential feature for those with narrow feet. Whether that takes the form of Velcro, laces, or buckles, the ability to customize the snugness of a shoe is key for those with narrow feet. You’ll find an adjustable element in almost every style of shoe listed ahead, which run the gamut from effortless slides to gladiator sandals to walking sandals.


Life would be much easier if all of our favorite shoe brands just carried narrow sizes, but unfortunately, that is rarely the case. However, just because a sandals isn’t technically categorized as having a narrow width doesn’t automatically mean it won’t fit. The reviews section of Amazon can be a goldmine for those of us struggling to find the perfect size and fit. Here, I found crucial sizing information, like a general consensus on footbed size (if the shoe runs wide, narrow, or average), as well as the tightness or looseness of the straps. Pro tip: Sometimes, reviewers report that opting for a full or half size down can get you a narrower footbed that still fits well.

With all that in mind, keep reading to discover some of the best sandals for narrow feet.

Choose from an array of adorable colors and patterns, like apricot colored stripes, metallic champagne, and retro geometric birch (pictured).

Helpful review: “These sandals are one of my most favorite and worn sandals. I have narrow feet and they fit perfectly. They are very comfortable. The color is beautiful and goes with everything.

Usually the straps are too loose and the soles are too wide, making it very difficult to walk or hike. BUT THESE are great! The sole fits perfectly and even has a nice arch. The straps are sized so that your foot doesn’t come away from the sole while walking... even when wet! We went hiking through a river bed and they stayed tight to my feet. The straps dried out pretty quickly too.”
