Few shoe styles capture the laid-back feel of summer better than flip-flops. While not suitable for all occasions, flip-flops are beloved for being super easy to slip on for either a quick trip to the store or a fun-filled beach day.
And while they’ve often gotten a bad rap for being flimsy and unsupportive, many brands are amping up the quality and comfort of their latest looks with features like soft yet durable leather straps, contoured footbeds and sturdy foam resin materials.
