While Memorial Day Weekend is known for its mattress deals, there are also a ton of other sales flying under the radar you need to check out. And one place to find them is Amazon. The e-commerce retailer is a goldmine for savings this holiday weekend, especially when it comes to tracking down comfortable sandals—which we all need for summer.

In fact, you'll find a range of majorly discounted sandals from top-rated brands like Adidas and Chaco to help round out your closet. We're talking everything from recovery slides to wear after you hit the gym to colorful espadrilles you can take to your best friend's wedding. And the best part? A handful are podiatrist-approved, so those who need arch support or have flat feet, keep on scrolling!

There are many things that can determine a shoe's wearability, but "the number one thing to consider when walking in sandals is support," says board-certified podiatrist and foot surgeon Dr. Brad Schaeffer, DPM. That means choosing a shoe that has some of type of cushioning in the midsole. This is going to give you more stability and balance as you walk, and reduce the amount of impact of your feet. If you're not sure what that looks like in a shoe, here are five sandals (that are on sale!) that get the sign-off from Dr. Schaeffer.
