The Best Men’s Sandals 2020
Ladies, I’ve come today to bear some hard truths.
The first truth is that men have feet.
And the second?
By God, sometimes they like to show them!!!
Whether you have brothers, fathers, or boyfriends in your life, do them a favor and hook them up with some of the best men’s sandals that we’ve featured below!

Most Comfortable Sandals for Men
Best Slide Sandal for Men: Nike
Every man needs a great pair of slides, whether it’s for the shower, walking around the block for some groceries, or bringing that extra casual look to the family cookout!
And, when it comes to the best men’s slide sandals, my in-house male consultant (aka, my boyfriend) tells me to look no further than the Nike Benassi JDI Slide sandals!
Neither of us know exactly what “Benassi JDI” means, but we do know that these sandals feature a padded foot bed, an injected cushion for additional comfort and arch support, and a textured, no-slip insole!
Looks great with: gym shorts, a T-shirt – basically any casual look!
Best All-Around Sandal for Men: Birkenstock
We have previously touched on the versatility of Birkenstock when discussing the best women’s sandals, and, when it comes to the best men’s leather sandals, Birkenstock still brings it!
The Arizona Essentials sandal checks literally so many boxes that your man could do just fine without any other pair of sandals!
These sandals feature a lightweight construction, waterproof upper, anatomically shaped EVA foot bed, and an ultra-lightweight, shock-absorbing outsole!
And, at a price way more competitive than most Birkenstocks, what’s not to love?
Looks great with: khaki shorts and a matching navy blue polo or T-shirt!
Best Men’s Sandal for the Beach: Reef
When I told my boyfriend I was doing this article and asked for his advice, he couldn’t even finish swallowing his potato chips before he screamed “Yooo, you gotta put in the Reef sandals that have a BOTTLE OPENER on the bottom!!”.
Well, this one’s for you.
Yes, the legendary Reef Draftsmen sandals DO, in fact, have a bottle opener attached to the outsole!
However, if you’re a little more humane than what I’m dealing with, there’s plenty more to love about these candidates for the best men’s leather sandals, including the classy waxed leather and durable, abrasion-resistant outsole!
Looks great with: a great pair of board shorts…and nothing else!
Best Men’s Sandal for Arch Support: OOFOS
Resisting the temptation to sing “Oops!…I Did it Again”…resisting…resisting…okay, resisted.
Despite the funky spelling, the OOFOS OOriginal Sandals are among the best men’s sports sandals on the market today.
Designed specifically to reduce stress on sore knees, back, and feet, the OOFOS sandals feature moisture and odor-resistant materials (important for post-workout recovery!).
These mens sandals also have a soft-contoured toe that reduces the likelihood of chafing, and a proprietary foot bed technology designed to absorb impact and naturally cradle the arches!
Looks great with: a chill pair of lounge pants and a nice work-out shirt!
Best for Recovery: Hoka One One
We featured Hoka One One during a recent trip to the Amazon. and came away amazed at the brand’s commitment to footwear that can withstand and support even the toughest conditions!
Thanks to the Hoka One One sandal, we’ve found the brand that made its name in trail running also makes some of the best men’s walking sandals, too!
Designed specifically for post-workout recovery, the aptly-named Hoka One One recovery sandals offer maximum cushioning and a dual-layer construction for enhanced durability.
Plus, the company invented a proprietary foot bed that creates a smooth transition from heel to toe movement – so the entire walking (or running!) process is comfortable, easy and supported!
Looks great with: any great workout outfit!
Best Men’s Sandal for Hiking: Keen
If these look like the Rolls-Royce of men’s sandals, then that’s probably because they are!
The Keen Newport H2 leaves no stone un-turned (get it? because of hiking??).
These mens hiking sandals feature a quick-drying synthetic upper, compression-molded EVA midsole, anti-microbial foot bed, comfortable elastic cord closure, and 3M-manufactured reflective pull tabs for safety!
They may be among the most expensive men’s sandals options, but there’s a reason the Keen sandals have nearly 2,000 five-star reviews!
Looks great with: cargo pants, a Patagonia shirt, a backpack, and plenty of drinking water!
