The 13 Best Summer Sandals for Pregnant Women & Other Women Who Walk

By ceridwen |

Like any good New Yorker I care a lot about shoes. And I also care a lot about being able to walk in them.

I know Carrie Bradshaw made it seem like we’re all clip-clopping around in sky-high heels but if you see Sarah Jessica Parker dropping her kids off at school, she’s wearing moccasins. When it comes to footwear, living in NYC is kind of like being pregnant. You want cool shoes that won’t trip you up.

Teetering habits of Jessica Simpson and Rachel Zoe aside, I’ve found most pregnant women seek comfort in footwear. There are swollen feet to consider. But also the fact that walking during pregnancy is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

I’ve assembled some really good, sensible but seriously stylish shoes that work so well during pregnancy, postpartum with a baby and when you’re chasing a kid around the playground. Some are wedgier than others but all boast some reasonable level of wear-ability.

    Can I toss in a shout out for Toms!? Because I so desperately need a pedicure yet have no desire to plop these plump puppies into someone’s hands right now, I’ve gone almost strictly to Toms. They stretch where I need them to stretch and they breathe pretty darn well for a full shoe! My only fear is how they’ll fit my foot postpartum, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take for a little comfort now.

    Seconding the shout out to Toms! I saved an old pair that I had stretched out from wearing them so much, and now they fit my swollen feet so that I don’t have to stretch my new ones. :)
