Over the past few years, Birkenstock’s Arizona sandals have become the go-to summer sandal for most people. Once mocked for being ugly, the brand’s instantly-recognizable double strap sandal has somehow created a place for itself in millions of closets. The buckled style has even been spotted on celebrities and influencers.

Whether due to their comfortability, easy slide-on nature or something else entirely, Birkenstocks are definitely a thing. However, that doesn’t mean that they come cheap — the well-known Arizona style retails for $100.

So if you have trouble dropping that much on a pair of “ugly” shoes, you’re not alone. And thankfully, the fashion industry has apparently picked up on that cue, seeing as tons of other brands produce a similar shoe for way, way less.

Keep scrolling to shop five affordable alternatives to Birkenstock’s Arizona sandal below that are all $50 or less.
