You can't go barefoot everywhere, and unless you're Britney Spears, there are some places you wouldn't want to if you could -- but flip flops
are the next best thing. Actually, with these super comfortable selections, flip flops are even better than bare feet. Here are our favorite flip flops for this summer:
If you just want a plain, basic flip flop, you can't beat the comfort of Havaianas
. The simple flats are available in dozens of solid colors as well as whimsical patterns, if that's your preference. Havaiana flip flops have a rubber footbed and soft straps that won't dig into your feet or rub them raw. In fact, you'll hardly feel them.
Oakley is best known for their top of the line sunglasses, but they make great flip flops, too. Like their shades, Oakley flip flops
are sleek and sporty. The Supercoil style pictured here has RED CODE foam, which shapes itself to your foot like memory foam, providing great support and comfort. Unlike their sunglasses, you can snag most pairs of Oakley flip flops for around $40.
If there can be such a thing as a luxury flip flop, these ECCO Tarifa
sandals are it. The cork and leather footbed provides comfortable support while the lightweight rubber sole gives you great traction, so you can walk all day in these flip flops. You can always wear them casually, but ECCO flip flops also work well with dressier summer outfits.
When you want the comfort of flip flops but don't want to sacrifice height, try wedge flip flops
. These ESNY wedge flip flops
with white satin bows were made with brides in mind. Flip flops are the perfect footwear for an outdoor summer wedding -- you're going to be on your feet all day, so you'd best choose something comfortable.
