What to Look for When Shopping for Flip-Flops


“While plastic or rubber flip-flops have a beachy vibe, leather straps or statement details, like rhinestones or beading, can help add a little pep to your step,” says Sanchez. “Try styling these more fashion-forward options during the spring and summer months with jean shorts and your favorite tee for any casual occasion.”


Although most flip-flops have a low to non-existent heel, recent years have seen “heeled and platform flip-flops make a huge comeback,” says Sanchez. “These popular styles are easy to dress up with slip dresses or wide-leg pants and add a fun element of surprise to your outfit.”

How We Researched

To compile this list, our team of editors and contributors spent hours researching the best products on the market in this category, evaluating their key features—like ingredients, shade range, or design—in addition to reviews from customers and other trusted sources. We then used this research to assign a star rating from one to five (five being the best; one being the worst) to certain products on the list.
