Don’t let the awkward look of these shoes fool you — they claim to be some of the most comfortable and practical pieces you can slip into this season. But would you actually wear these? Scroll through the options and then decide.

1. Aliwendy Casual Leather Beach Sandals

The company calls this pair of slip-ons a “tasteful summer sandal,” though that wouldn’t have been our first choice of word to use. Still, for less than $30, these well-reviewed sandals should last you through all your summer activities, from a walk on the beach, to a leisurely hike.

Made with a genuine leather upper, the sandals feature a rubber outsole for traction, and an odor-resistant, quick dry lining that keeps the shoes fresh. The cut-out design allows for breathability — no sweaty feet here. Available in three colors, the unisex sandals come with a money-back guarantee. The company says people with wider feet should size up.

2. The North Face – ThermoBall Water-Resistant Traction slipper

You already know The North Face for their line of super warm jackets and accessories… so think of these puffy shoes as an extensive of those winter coats. This fleece-lined slip-on features a collapsible heel and the company’s “PrimaLoft ThermoBall” insulation, which keeps the warmth in — and water out. And while these shoes look like they’d be better off as slippers, they actually are designed to be worn outside. This pair features slip-resistant treads for excellent traction in icy conditions. Would you take these for a spin?

3. Teva Ember Moc Shoe

If a sneaker and a sleeping bag had a baby, the Teva Women’s Ember Moc Shoe would be the result. These super comfy slip-ons feature a collapsible heel, a quilted upper to keep you cozy, and a rubber outsole for traction and durability. You’ll want to snuggle into these shoes at the cottage, at home, to yoga or on the plane for long flights (they’re lightweight and easy to pack, too). These aren’t your regular Tevas that you’re used to… but then again, none of these aforementioned shoes really fit into any category or box.
