Calling all footwear fashionistas! Sandal season is finally here.

One of the best parts about the summer is ditching your sneakers and boots, slipping into a comfy sandal and letting your toes get some sun. With the official start of summer just a few weeks away, we put together a list of the 6 best platform sandals to shop this season.

From new Crocs sandals to Rothy’s viral wedges and other stylish sandal options, see below for a collection of platform sandals to help you channel summer vibes.

Crocs

Crocs Brooklyn Low Wedge


The comfort of Classic Crocs transformed into a wear-anywhere sandal. The Brooklyn Wedge sandal features lightweight construction and an elegant silhouette with a 2-inch platform heel, comfortable upper straps, smooth foot straps that won’t dig into your skin and cushiony footbeds featuring LiteRide foam (think: walking on clouds). The Brooklyn Wedge is available in black and black/mushroom and sizes ranging from 4-11, but you’ll want to size up as the sandal runs small.

Reef Water Vista Higher Sandal


Reef’s Water Vista Higher sandal is described as a water-friendly, “elevated platform” offering a light-weight feel, courtesy of the compression molded footbed and adjustable back straps. The sandal features a 2.5-inch platform and its available in various colors including black, cloud, black cognac, citron and vintage citron (sizes 5-11).

Ugg Women’s Aubrey Ankle Sandal


If you’re already a fan of Ugg boots and slippers, here’s an alternative shoe from the footwear band. The Aubrey Ankle Sandal is made from suede and recycled fibers, with a dash of raffia and a sugarcane EVA outsole and a 2-inch platform heel. The sandal is available in black and tan (sizes 5-12).

Crocs

Crocs Getaway Platform Flip


The Crocs Getaway Collection Platform Flip is a perfect vacation sandal: flexible, functional, packable and most importantly, comfortable.
