The Summer’s Best Flip-Flops

Ask Mr. Smith, and he’ll tell you that flip-flops are decidedly inelegant, appropriate for the beach, the yard, and not much else. Still, there’s no denying that flip-flops are a summer essential, and even if you only wear them on the dock, you know well that there’s no holiday from looking sharp. Here, our favourite flip-flops.

Joe Fresh Flip-Flops
Available in neutral colours like beige, navy and dark green, Joe’s flip-flops cost as much as a bag of Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies. These simple, minimalist thongs offer the best value outside of Chinatown. $4

Vans La Costa
The Vans La Costa takes the skate shoes’ classic waffle sole and fashions it into a sandal. It stands out in the colour blue, though nostalgic skaters will favour the checkered white-and-black pattern. US $32

Sanük Beer Cozies
Sexy or savvy? California-based Sanük makes flip-flops out of yoga mats for girls, and beer cozies for guys. We won’t protest: This sandal (pictured above) is even better at keeping your feet comfy than it is at cooling your beer. US $26

Fashion designer twins Dean and Dan Caten remember their roots: These haute flip-flops feature a sole engraved with little maple leaves. The subtle touch complements a slick, all-black design. US $97

Havaiana Tops
Launched in Brazil in the early 1960s, Havaianas are the original modern flip-flop. Now, the brand’s iconic for its comfort and variety: the foot bed is made of thick, soft rubber, and pairs of Tops are available in a vast rainbow of colours. $20

  1. Hello guys, nice one on the flip flops in the summer. I use them all the time.
    Prada makes them too.


  2. I think one of the brands that you missed is REEF!! They make some of the most comfortable flip flops I have ever worn, plus some of them even have a bottle opener built into them!! I practically live in them in the summer.

  3. You forgot the best flops going, Reefs, whether equipped with a bottle opener or a flask these flops cannot be beat for, style, comfort and practicality!
