7 beach-ready sandals you can get at Nordstrom Rack for $50 or less

Your schedule is cleared, your plans are made, your tickets are booked — it’s time for a summer trip. Of course, some serious style preparation is in need for the affair. Most beach vacations are laid-back and restful, prioritizing recharging and sightseeing above all else. When it comes to your wardrobe, you likely want to keep things low-key, versatile and comfort-minded. That’s especially true when it comes to footwear.

For warm-weather vacations to the beach, sandals are a style must. Sandals keep your feet cool and comfortable, plus they are easy to slide on and off when needed (hello, crystal-clear water!). But only packing constricting gladiators or jute wedges is just not the vibe for relaxation and comfort. While you probably want a pair of fancy shoes for dressy dinners and evening soirees, your everyday footwear should be much more casual.

Luckily, Nordstrom Rack is stockpiled with beach-ready sandal options that will reinvigorate your vacation-ready footwear collection. From iconic Tevas to cushy waterproof slides, the retailer stocks it all.

Below, take a look at these top beach-ready sandals from Nordstrom Rack, all priced under $50. All will withstand a day of walking — or a day of relaxing in the sand.
