Tell me the truth: what is the maximum amount of Targets you’ve been to in one week? In the past two days, I went to two different ones. And if I’m being honest, that is well below my all-time maximum. ?But sometimes, it’s worth it, and this was one of those times. I went on a hunt for the best Target sandals for spring. And y’all, I found some winners! From espadrilles to block heels and slides to gladiator sandals, we’re coverin’ ’em all!
Sizing-wise, I most often wear a size 9, but I will occasionally like the fit of an 8.5 better. My feet are pretty narrow as well! If you have any question about what size I’m wearing, you’ll find my sizing along with any fit recommendations I may have listed beneath each set of photos!
Cayla Microsuede Shield Espadrille Wedge
Even though these are four inches high (which is, by the way my absolute height limit ?), they are very comfortable! The thick wedge and platform also make them feel pretty sturdy! They also come in a beautiful rusty brown color and black. (These are the taupe!) The faux suede top feels super-soft and almost looks like the real thing! They fit TTS.
Rosalee Microsuede Gladiator Sandals
I love a gladiator sandal, so I was excited about these! But y’all, they fit huge. My typical size 9 felt more like a 10 or 10.5. You’ll definitely need to size down one full size in these! These are the rust, which come in a faux suede, but the black and brown are regular faux leather. They also have a zipper back, making it easier to put them on and take them off.
Sandals (9) — Size down one full size!
Megan Microsuede Quarter Strap Heeled Pump Sandals
I love the retro vibe of these! They feel very 50’s ladylike to me! The heel is only three inches and the block heel is very comfortable to walk in! These also come in red, blush, and black. Fit is TTS!
Morgan Two Piece Espadrille Wedge
Style-wise, these were one of my favorites! I loved the rich rusty brown shade of these exact ones I tried, but they also come blue, black, coral, and a nearly-sold-out cheetah print! (How did I not know about the cheetah print?!!) As with the first suede espadrilles, these feel super high quality. And I love the stitching around the toe as well! They look way pricier than $32! I tried them in an 8.5, but I would probably prefer the 9, since my toe was covering a bit of the stitching detail.
Women’s Lissa Asymmetrical Slide Sandals
These, like Target’s Wenda Bootie, these slides are a dupe of Free People sandals. I do love the style of these! (I own the FP closed-toe version!) Buuuut the quality felt pretty lacking in my opinion. There are lots of other options that felt less plastic-y and more high end! I’d skip these unless you absolutely love the style and don’t want to pay Free People prices! They fit big on me. I’d recommend sizing down 1/2 size, especially if you have a narrow foot. They also come in black and gold.

Women’s Caroline Microsuede Ankle Strap Espadrille Wedge
These are another no-brainer winner! The quality is wonderful and the style is so cute on! I love them in blush but they also come in grey, cognac, and taupe! These also are four inches, but are pretty darn comfortable to walk in! They fit TTS!
Women’s Hummingbird Ankle Strap Sandals
I’ll be honest with you. I was hoping to like these but they just didn’t feel my style! They were comfortable though and do fit TTS. They also come in taupe!
Women’s Vail Woven Slide Sandals
These are some of the best inexpensive huarache-style sandals I’ve seen. The faux leather looks really nice in person but they are a little stiff! I have narrow feet and these fit but not with much room to spare. I’d recommend the wide if you have a more normal width foot or wider foot. These also come in black!
Slides (9) — narrow fit
Jenny Slide Sandals
Another great Target dupe! These ones look like a Steve pair that are four times the price! They are pretty comfortable and also come in gold and snakeskin print!
Krissy Crossband Slide Sandals
The quality of these slides really impressed me! The faux leather feels very substantial. They slid on my feet easily with a little room, but I could see the fit being an issue for wide feet. The downside is that they felt a little bulkier on my foot than I would have liked, but I did love the woven bands. They also come in white!
Trista Mixed Media Wedge Espadrilles
Another fav! Are you sensing a pattern here? Basically, I love every single pair of espadrilles I tried. These are more of a platform style, and I love the details of the studs and black pattern on the sides. They also come in a light tan that are the perfect neutral! These are the perfect option if you want an espadrille without the major height! (They’re only 2.5 inches!) Fit is TTS.
Sabrina Two Band Buckle Slide Sandals
I really wanted these to work for me! The style felt like something I could wear nearly everyday in spring and summer. Unfortunately, they fit very wide on my narrow foot! They also come in white and black. Length fits TTS but I would skip if you have a more narrow foot.
Sandals (9) — fit wide!
Haley Two Strap City Sandal Pumps
These are the heeled version of the previous flats, and while they were a smidge wide, they fit much better than the flat version! I love the thick block heel, which make them very wearable for everyday. They’re currently sold out of my size in the cognac color, but I’m holding out hope that they’ll be restocked because I need these in my life! They also come in black. Fit is TTS.
Sarina Crossband Sandals
Another option I definitely recommend! The faux leather feels so soft and looks expensive! (But they’re only $22!) My typical 9 fit me well, but if you have a wide foot, you might find these too narrow. They also come in black!
Rianne Espadrille Ankle Strap Sandals
Man, do I have some regrets about these. I tried them on in-store at the beginning of March. And now? They’re nearly sold out in every size. Sigh. I tried them on in a 10 just so I could show them to you, but I would suggest staying with your true size if you can get your hands on them!! They do also come in white.

Michaela Mid Block Heel Pump Sandals
You can just never go wrong with a classic shoe like this one. You can dress it up to nicer events like graduations and weddings, but you can also wear them everyday with sundresses and jeans. I’m obsessed with them in this taupe color. They extend the line of the leg and are so flattering on the foot! I tried them in an 8.5 and like the fit. The heel is 2.5 inches.
Winona Ankle Strap Sandal
If you liked the look of the previous ones but don’t like heels, these are for you! Style-wise they are nearly identical and are just as flattering on! They come in four other colors and are under $20!! These were a top fav of mine!
Agnes Quarter Strap Espadrille Sandals
How fun is this yellow?! They do also come in blue and black if yellow isn’t your thing. The platform style is very wearable and not too high at 2 inches. I’m wearing these in an 8.5 and like the fit. If you’re in between sizes, I’d size down 1/2!
I love how you did this post!!! I have super narrow feet and it’s rare I can get a Target shoe to fit, but I’m going to have to check some of these out!!! I think they’ve knocked it out of the park in the espadrille dept.
YES! The espadrilles were my favorite!
Great post, Lauren! I have the yellow espadrilles and they are amazing! Highly recommend. Thanks for reviewing all these shoes!
Great post Lauren! Thank you for the detailed descriptions.
