3. Birkenstock Mayari Sandal

Birkenstock put the now iconic flatbed sandal on the map in the 90s. This classic style got a second win a couple of years ago in the fashion world, thanks to their low-key chic style. The Mayari sandal gives the classic shoe a contemporary update with cross over toe straps and metal buckle detail. These everyday sandals offer a slightly more feminine silhouette than the original style, with slimmer buckle straps. But don’t worry, the comfortable footbed that molds to the shape of your foot and cradles every step you take is still firmly in place in Birkenstock’s latest iteration.

This style is equipped with a water-friendly rubber sole that’s supported with heel airbags for shock absorption. Plus, as if that wasn’t enough, these sandals also come with a bottle opener.
