Costco has Jambu sandals, on line only for $16.99. Black, red & denim blue. They’re more of an actual Mary Jane shoe but Jambus are great walking shoes & normally over $100. Come in half sizes too. I bought all 3 colors!

My warehouse had them in the store. I tried on but they were a terrible fit :-( I have a pair of Jambu wedges that are super comfy (except that, as a wedge, I occasionally fall off - I really should only wear flats!)

It depends what you consider comfortable. Some like a squishy footbed, some like firm support.

I prefer a firm, high arch. Otherwise I get foot fatigue. I have a pair of Keen sandals and a pair of adjustable Chaco sandals. Also a pair of Chaco flip flops and Rainbow flip flops.

I second Naot as a favorite sandal. Look at the naot.com website for descriptions of the current styles and different footbeds (fit for narrow, medium and wide widths).
I purchase my Naots from Zappos - free shipping with delivery in one day plus free returns.
My Naot sandals have style as well as comfort, definitely favorites.

I don't order shoes online, because I like to try them on before buying. While I was in Marshall's last month, I found a pair of Earth Origins sandals which are super comfortable.

Although I wear size 9, not everything feels comfortable. I need to try on a few pairs until I find the right fit.

I got the black and red and love these shoes! I am thinking that these may be Disney shoes because they are so comfy!!! I couldn’t believe the price when I saw them at Cosco

Love Keen sandals. I could walk for hours in them and never any discomfort.

To clarify for others who might be interested - they might in fact be lovely shoes. But they are JBU - the cheaper line of Jambu. So Jambu might be a $100 shoe but the JBU are normally <$50. Still a great deal at $16.99 if they fit you. But....

I’m a Skechers fanatic. I own sandals, tennis shoes and dress shoes by them. They just fit my feet very well and are usually extremely comfortable from the moment I try them on! And their pricing always seems to be very competitive.
