While a pair of pretty summer sandals are obviously a must-have in anyone's shoe collection, they're not always particularly high on the comfort scale.

If you're sick of sacrificing your feet in the name of summer fashion and have had enough of carrying blister plasters in every handbag you own, M&S might just save you.

Fans of the British retailer are loving the Leather Flat Open Toe Sliders thanks to their majorly affordable price tag and the fact they're said to be just as comfy as slippers.

The sunny-day shoes come in four colours, including black, tan, navy and a glam gold.

The soft leather cross over straps mean your feet are hugged by flexible material with every step that won't rub or irritate your skin like plastic straps notoriously do.

The stylish sliders cost just £35 a pair and are the ideal slip-on shoes for holidays and stay-at-home summers alike.

Naturally, they've received loads of five star reviews from shoppers raving about them online.

One happy customer penned, 'As comfortable as slippers! These sliders are SO comfortable... I bought them in black and, just as on the website, they look much more expensive than the on-sale (or usual) price. Very happy with this, admittedly, impulse "lockdown" purchase!'

'Good quality, stylish sandals. Wearable with jeans or skirts. Very comfortable,' added another, while a third agreed, 'Lovely sliders the leather is so soft, you can wear them dressy as well.'

They feature a unique but classy cut and 6.5cm heel, meaning you won't be struggling to stay on your feet when you walk in them.

'Not only do they look great, these women’s shoes are also highly supportive thanks to inbuilt Insolia that works hard to keep your feet feeling comfortable throughout the day and evening,' the M&S website says.
