I so frequently don’t understand why beach shoes and summer flipflops have such uncomfortable thong parts. Even Havaianas, which are supposed to be so comfortable, bruise up the top of my foot. I want something that can maybe transition from shopping to the beach and vice versa, so I need to be able to wear it all day.
I was therefore thrilled to come upon a reasonably priced pair of fabric thong flip flops at Coup de Coeur in Fort Greene, designed by incredibly reasonable-in-general company Chinese Laundry. The style is the Diablo and is selling for $48.95 at Zappos.
Leather or terrycloth are also good options for the thong of the flipflops. Here’s one by Jeffrey Campbell for $39.00. Sure, that’s more than Havaianas, but they’ll probably be on your foot longer because the thong is more comfortable.
Got any suggestions for readers on flip flops with comfortable thongs that can take you from the beach to a casual dinner and shopping? Share them in the comments.
