Most Comfortable Flip Flops

 

The summer is right around the corner. Time for our feet to breathe! After our bodies and feet have been wrapped up all winter it is time to get comfy. Flip flops are used in all aspects of a person’s day to day living in the summer. Not only are people wearing flip flops at the beach, flip flops are worn everywhere!

Choosing the most comfortable flip flop is very important to your day. If you will be wearing your flop all day, it is important to choose the right one. Simply stated, your flop can make or break your day. Choose wisely!

Flip flops help our body lower its internal temperature by allowing our feet to release heat. Our precious feet are crucial when it comes to regulating our temperature. Flip flops also encourage a stress free living when it comes to choosing shoes to wear. We simply slide our feet in our flop. No matching socks to find, no shoelaces to tie.. The hardest choice when putting our flops on is which ones to wear.

Several reasons come into play when choosing the flip flop that’s best for you: Style, comfort, durability, price, material, and support. That’s a lot to think about! So to help you this year with deciding which flop will be suited best for you, I did some homework. I researched three different websites who have chosen the top-rated flip flops for 2018.

There are so many styles to choose from in the design of a flip flop. Some have thick straps, thin straps, a strap in the back, and long straps that travel down the length of your feet. Color also is a big factor affecting your choice. Is an easy black flip flop that matches most outfits best for you or a fun colorful flop that makes a statement?

Comfort

Comfort, to me, is the most important. The other factors will follow accordingly, but I am a 46 year old, so my priorities are quite different than others. The size of the strap is a factor in comfort. Thicker straps have been rated to provide more comfort and thin straps are known to get thinner with wear and tear. Again, a personal preference.

If you have flat feet a flop with support for your arch is a must. Some flops contour to your feet and give them a nice supported feel. Shop for the flop that offers a comfortable foot bed, high traction, and arch support.

Durability

How durable is your flop? After several uses with plastic flip flops you may as well be plastic FFbarefoot! Plastic flip flops flatten to a pan cake with numerous use. Those are the ones you end up purchasing at a gas station because you weren’t prepared for your beach day! Yikes! It is important to choose a flop that has the toe strap sewn directly on the insole, not held together by a button underneath.

There is a lot of various materials used in the construction of flip flops. Rubber, nylon, EVA, leather, and more. Rubber has less erosion on the sole allowing for a better grip. When looking for a flop that will last a while, nylon straps are very hardy. EVA is a popular material used in making tennis shoes. It is safe and many flip flops are made from it. Leather flops are comfortable and are great with those of you who battle sweaty feet. You know who you are. 🙂

Price

When it comes to pricing your flop, you pretty much get what you pay for. The plastic pair can be as cheap as $2 but hence the word, CHEAP! The better the material the better the flop and probably will end up paying a higher price. But, the more durable the material the longer your flop will last. Do the math and see. 🙂

Here are the top ten most comfortable flip flops with the highest ratings.

  1. Hi Kristy,
    Flip flops… I grew up with this. I have been using this since I was a kid. Ohh, using it is very comfortable. You can wiggle your toes comfortably.

    Sometimes, I don’t need to use a flip-flop when walking on the beach, I like to feel the sand underneath my toes. But of course, if it burning hot, flip-flops are needed for protection.

    I like the Oofos flip-flops; looks comfortable to my feet. It is gentle and soft.

    Thanks,
    Jocelyn

    1. Hi Jocelyn, yes flip-flops are great and EASY! I like walking down the beach barefoot myself but I live in Texas and our beaches aren’t the softest and greatest on the feet. 🙂

      The Oofos flip flops are very popular and comfy. I’m glad you like them!

      Thanks for sharing Jocelyn! Have a great weekend!

      Kristy
