10 Best Summer Flip Flops
These sassy sandals will take you everywhere.
Every one prepares for summer as though it’s the prom: they visit the gym to get buff, they wax,shave and resurrect their feet from the dead by getting pedicures.
Yes, the summer race is on and although your shoe wardrobe may house everything including the cat’s meow, chances are that your feet still feel the most comfortable in flip flops. Even Kim Kardashian, who’s always seen in sky high heels, has a pair that she slips on every now and then. Read on for our top ten picks for the season.
1. Everyone except maybe goldfish have heard of Havaianas. They make so many types that their web site is a veritable zoo of choices. We love the printed Slim Ethnics ($24, us.havainas.com) pattern that was inspired by bright African fabrics.
2. Looking for a sporty version of the traditional flip flop? Consider the comfy soft nubuck Clarks sporty Jumprope ($50, zappos.com). These will absorb the shock of every day walking and you can even wear them to the tennis courts (but it would be hard to play in them). We love the sorbet shades and the hint of a heel.
3. If you want flip flops with a touch of bling, then Sanuk’s Monaco ($35.95, zappos.com) jeweled flip flop is for you. It’s soft EVA foot bed reduces shock and stress on the feet when walking. This sandal is so cute, it can even be worn out on a date.
4. We love the idea of flowers at your feet with this pleasing, tropical-flavored plaid pattern. Nine West Flirjel Rainbow colored jelly thongs ($29.99, ninewest.com) will make your tootsies look like sunshine.
