You guyssssss, flip-flops are having a moment (or they’re about to). We’re elated to realize this because, well, they’re the freaking easiest. As in — dare we say it — the easiest summer shoe ever? I mean, the whole slip-on/slip-off thing is hard to beat.
Whether you’re planning lots of beach days, or you’re in need of some chic, easy shoes to pair with your cutoff shorts or breezy dresses, flip-flops are going to be everywhere this summer. In a cool kinda way.
We had to do some serious research (aka a weighty, momentous Zoom call picking apart poor, defenseless flip-flop styles) in order to pare down THE shoes of summer 2023. It’s pretty obvious that flip-flops are high up on the trends list for the upcoming months where those pretty pedicures are on full display. Hallelujah.
Flip-Flops Are Summer’s “It” Shoe: Our Top 10, Ft. OluKai, Havaianas & More
Where did this oh-so-serious research stem from, you may wonder? Nordstrom was the first site to pique our interest. It has such a good selection if you want more shoes than you knew were possible to sift through. Other great retailers that seem to have The Shoe Of The Summer all stocked up? Saks, Bloomingdales and probably Amazon are your best options.
If you don’t want to make it your life’s mission to go through pages and pages, we obviously did the grunt work for you. Here are our top 10:
How chic!! The little bit of heel totally takes these J.Crew flip-flops up a notch, making it pairable with fancier outfits all spring & summer long. I love the laid-back, beachy look the model is sporting with them.
The footbed on these OluKai flip-flops just looks so buttery, doesn’t it? I appreciate the 1/2-inch platform and the soft leather straps for an effortlessly comfy footwear option for every day.
These FitFlop sandals are the perfect mix of a flip-flop & wedge, another super-trendy style for this spring and summer. Love the metallic for a little extra oomph.
This light tan color of the FitFlop Gracie flip-flops is simply delicious, especially the way it accentuates the pretty little buckle. They’re also made with Dynamicush footbed…? Sounds dreamy. Linzi, queen of comfort shoes, are you hearing this?
These flip-flops from Havaianas are the ones I have my eye on the most. SO simple and reminiscent of younger summers while looking somehow updated & pretty? I just love the really slim straps & this bronze color. Soooo good.
This chocolate color of these FitFlop sandals is kind of great for a flip-flop, no? Again, the metallic straps are the perfect fancy-vibe (well, fancy for a flip-flop) addition to make them a bit more stylish. That thick sole looks insanely cushiony too.
OluKai’s leather flip-flops are another simple pair that looks like comfort heaven. These come in a ton of colors, but this copper was definitely my & Shana’s fave.
There’s something about a cute printed strap that’s just so playful. These Reef sandals have got some good arch support and a seriously durable sole for allll the summertime wear.
For having a lil printed fun – these Havaianas ‘flops. The perfect everyday pair that you can thrown on for anything. Simple & adorable.
These leather flip-flops from TKEES are shockingly fashionable because, well, could they get any simpler? They’re definitely the slimmest, strappiest, sexiest (?) one of the bunch, and I want ’em. The crazy-soft Brazilian leather is a game-changer too.
