With the heat still here and heavy-duty kicks still packed away, weather-appropriate footwear is in demand. And while canvas sneakers and low-tops will do the job Monday to Friday, there’s no denying that breezy open-toed slides and sandals reign supreme when you’re kicking it on a summer’s weekend.

A new wave of sandals has recently hit retailers from all walks of fashion, and it’s had us bumping up the summer essential to the top of our shopping list. Here, we share the finds from our quest for the perfect pair, and you’ll be happy to know that options start at less than 40 bucks.

At the more affordable end of the spectrum, you can’t really go wrong with a pair of Nike or adidas slides, as well as Birkenstocks‘ trusty sandals, our favorite of which come in a dope all-yellow colorway that look great paired with bright white socks. Don’t get it twisted, though — brands such as Dr. Martens and Teva also offer wallet-friendly alternatives to more spendy options by the likes of Suicoke.

Speaking of Suicoke — the Tyler, the Creator-approved sandal is again offering up some of the best new models to add to your summer rotation, complete with chunky utilitarian vibes and super cool BAPE and Aries collaborations. Other stand-out options come courtesy of Off-White™, and those shopping on a more luxe budget could do a lot worse than the designer sandals of FendiGucci, and Rick Owens.
