From flip-flops to Birkenstocks, these travel-ready sandals for men will take you from the beach to the trail and beyond.
I have two rules when it comes to packing. The first is for all my clothes to be within the same color palette, so I can seamlessly mix and match while reducing the risk for the age-old overpacking issue. My second rule is to always pack a pair of sandals — no matter the destination or time of year.
It’s a given to bring sandals when heading to the coast or embarking on a sailing trip, but even for those cool-weather destinations, a pair can prove to be quite handy. Wear them on your trip to the hot springs, during a quick zip to the market next door, or around the lodge during your afternoon of après ski. It’s also helpful to bring a pair of rubber slides to wear as house shoes around your hotel or Airbnb.
Since there are so many different types of sandals (leather, hiking, close-toed, etc.), we sought out a wide selection of the best men’s sandals — yes, even men’s gladiators. Below, you'll find the most stylish, durable, and comfortable options on the market for every type of vacation.
