12 Flip-Flops You'll Want to Buy This Summer, Even If You Swore You'd Never Buy Flip-Flops

Change is afoot.

im电竞官网-Listen, flip-flops catch a lot of flack. That's a fact. And sure, it doesn't help much that the shoe shares a name with a type of slippery indecisiveness the very worst politicians are routinely pilloried for, but c'mon—that's not the flip-flop's fault. They can hardly help their name. Ease up a bit.

Deep down, the flip-flop knows your disdain is a surface-level distraction, about as authentic as any of the policy positions a candidate embraces in the run-up to an important election. How can you possibly hate a shoe whose very nature and convenience aim to please at every turn?

Well guess what, gentlemen? No longer. It's time to embrace the flip-flop, whether for shuffling around your apartment or actually wearing outside (and maybe, someday, to the beach or pool). So, whether you're a longtime fan and owner of dozens of different styles or a recent convert fired up and ready to buy your first pair, I rounded up some of the best options available now. Flip-flops for life. (Or not. Up to you.)
