For much of the country, this spring has been noticeably short on hot days. But, summer is fast approaching and with it, hopefully, a nice long beachy vacation. If you haven't already, pack away the boots until next fall, and make the shift to sandals.

The 7 Best Sandals for Traveling

From comfy to sporty, these are the 7 best sandals to toss in your bag for your next warm weather vacation.

KEEN Bali Sandals

You cannot go wrong with KEEN when it comes to comfort, durability and practicality. Available for men, women and children, any of the sandals KEEN makes will be a staple when dresing for your trip. Their Women’s Bali sandals are water resistant, comfortable, and available in 8 color combos. For men, try the Waimea Sandals, which are similar to the Bali.

User  Review: "These have been a godsend for my battered feet! I have a chronic case of plantar fasciitis in both feet and the worst part is taking showers with no orthotics. That is painful! I ordered the Keen Bali specifically as shower shoes but I find them to be so comfortable that I am going to need another pair to wear as slippers. They have just the right amount of arch support for my not quite flat feet.”

Price: Bali $69.95 on Zappos

Waimea $59.95 on Zappos
