If You Like Bold Prints
Havaianas, a Brazilian flip-flop brand, offers designs in an array of bright hues. Pick your fave color or stock up on multiple to complete your perfect summer outfit.
If You’re Constantly On Your Feet
Tory Burch is known for its signature T logo and eclectic prints, as seen here with these chain-link-patterned wedge shoes. The brand’s flip-flops give off a nautical, summery vibe that are great for a day spent lounging at the beach or riding on a boat.
If You’re Not Afraid of Color
Reef’s styles definitely keep comfort in mind as many feature a cushiony sole and bouncy footbed that your feel will love. The brand captures that SoCal outdoor spirit, made especially for all kinds of beach activities.
If You Like a Preppy Aesthetic
Jack Rogers has been around since the ’60s, and Jackie O helped popularize the now-iconic whipstitch design synonymous with the brand. The designs capture that Americana vibe and come in SO many different colors.
If You’re a Fan of Leather Styles
Coach is known for its luxe leather designs, seen here with this sleek black pair. The elevated style would look amazing paired with a breezy summer dress at an alfresco dinner.
If You Like a Tropical Look
Ipanema’s Brazilian-made sandals channel the palm-tree-lined beaches of Rio—just take this vibrant printed design, for instance.
If Sustainability Is a Must
Melissa (aka the brand behind the jelly shoes of your childhood) has a plethora of ultra-feminine sandals, like this leopard-print pair with bow details. As a bonus: All materials used are cruelty-free and 100 percent recyclable.
If You Like Shoes That Mold to Your Feet
Putting on a pair of Rainbows is like wearing a memory-foam mattress on your feet. The handmade shoes form to your specific foot shape with every wear, so they’ll feel like they were made just for you.
If You Don’t Like Dropping a Ton of $$$
Old Navy’s sandals are inexpensive, but they don’t skimp on colorful prints and patterns. Case in point: this fun polka-dot pair.
If You Don’t Want Sore Feet
Birkenstock has been around since 1774, and its comfort-first, thick-soled designs have slowly taken over the fashion world. The signature soft-cork sole and adjustable strap make these ideal for all-day wear.
If You Like a More Contemporary Design
Jeffrey Campbell’s shoes put a modern twist on traditional silhouettes, and it’s no different when it comes to the brand’s flip-flops. These suede shoes are definitely not for the beach, but thanks to their infinity knot detail, they’ll upgrade any street-style outfit.
If You’re Into Dainty Straps
Banana Republic’s flip-flops come in a basic silhouette but feature some not-so-basic scalloped straps.
If You’re Looking for Arch Support
Hari Mari uses recyclable rubber and foam to create all its shoes. In addition to the sustainable factor, its styles also provide major cushion to the bottoms of your feet because of their memory-foam-like feel. No painful breaking in needed, TVYM.
If You Want to Embrace Your Wild Side
Charlotte Olympia is all about playful and feminine vibes thanks to the brand’s signature cat print. This style, which was created in collaboration with Havaianas, definitely stands out with its spots and metallic gold straps.
