Drab footwear days are over. It's time to add some spring -- and summer -- to your step with bright, colorful, and stylish sandals that boast eco cred, too. Here are our fave eco-friendly summer sandals, and some vegan kicks to top the list off, that are hot -- and green -- enough to knock your socks off.

1. Naya: Eternal Wedge

If the height alone -- they’re 4 inches high -- doesn’t give your look a stylish boost, the color will.

These vegetable-tanned, brighter-than-sunshine yellow kicks by Naya Shoes boast a comfortable wedge platform that makes them more wearable than most high heels. Add a cork midsole and a rubber and rice husk outsole, and they've got sustainable cred, too. ($145 at Nordstrom)

2. Swedish Hasbeens: Braided Sky High

Vintage Blue kicks by Swedish Hasbeens add a little high school prep to your step.

Made with vegetable-tanned natural grain leather that is nailed to a sustainably-harvested wood platform, this style is one we've raved about before and we still love it for its classic style, yet seasonally appropriate hue. ($202 at SwedishHasbeens.com)

3. Cri De Coeur: Warrior Studded Sandal
