I can see maybe myself wearing these Dr. Martens Skylar Slide Sandals, currently on sale at

With my daughter playing club soccer this spring and summer, I can see myself wearing these slide-on sandals with jean capris while cheering her on from the grass sidelines. And they appear comfortable yet easy to kick off while lounging in a lawn chair soaking up some sun.
