Sandal recommendations?

I want to know!

I need some new sandals for work for this summer. The past few years I've gotten whatever Target has that seems reasonable, and that's been okay, but I figured I'd throw this out there for other recommendations. Here are my criteria:

1. Work-appropriate. We're pretty casual, but flip-flops are discouraged.
2. Comfortable. I want to be able to wear them all day, and do a fair amount of walking without blisters or anything. I take walks during breaks at work, and I'm much less likely to actually do that if I have to change my shoes.
3. Versatile. I want to be able to wear them with more or less anything. The ideal color would probably be a "natural" brown that looks neutral enough to wear with black, as well.
4. Cheap and/or durable. Obviously, cheap and durable would be best. But if you swear they'll last me for years, I'm willing to spend a little more. On the other hand, if they'll only last me one season, they'd better be cheap.
So! Suggestions? Your favorites? Brands or styles you would NOT recommend? Thanks!

i got a really cute pair by Impo at DSW to replace another really cute pair by Impo I got 2 years ago! i got them in the silver color which pretty much goes with everything in my wardrobe.


having said that, the most comfortable sandals i've ever owned are my recent purchase of my Dansko's. Insanely expensive, but they actually will last you forever (my clogs are 2 years old and still totally fine). as for comfort, these are the brand that doctors, nurses, dentists, and chefs wear ALL THE TIME. not a blister in sight.

For comfort, durability, and good-lookin'-ness, I really love Merrells. The insoles and everything are all specially balanced to support our feet, and where ladies tend to bear our weight. I don't know how to explain how comfortable their shoes can be - I actually feel like I'm doing something good for my feet when I wear them. Obviously they're not the cheapest, but pairs definitely turn up in T.J. Maxx and Marshall's.
