Best Flip Flops For Men

The suffocating heat of Summer is no time to keep your feet cocooned inside of sweltering leather boat shoes, Summer is the season when it is perfectly acceptable for you to wear flip flops with chinos to dinner and nobody will question your fashion choice.  Flip flops aren’t just stylish footwear, they are essentially a survival item to help you navigate the suffocating Summer heat.  Here are the four top picks:

Rainbow Sandals

Rainbow Sandals are like the Mercedes Benz of men’s flip flops. They’re classic, dependable, high-performance, and they last for generations. Unlike Mercedes Benz, Rainbow Sandals are extremely affordable, and they are the best choice of flip flops for men.

Reef Sandals

Reef is quite possibly the best known brand name in the men’s sandals industry and for very good reason: they make some of the most quality flip flops on the market.

  • Leather
  • Made in the USA or Imported
  • Rubber sole
  • Classic flip-flop with durable, abrasion-resistant leather straps
  • Triple-density EVA construction
  • Non-marking outsole
Sperry Top-Sider Men’s Baitfish Flip Flops

If you plan on doing any boating this Summer or spending significant amounts of time on or near the water then you might want to consider the Sperry Top-Sider Baitfish as your sandal of choice. These rubber flip flops come with leather trim and a synthetic no-skid sole to keep the boat deck from getting scuffed up and to stop you from sliding on wet surfaces. On top of all that they come from Sperry, one of the most trusted names in footwear, and the ultimate bro brand.

Sanuk Men’s Fraid Sandal

Sanuk has been manufacturing some of the most comfortable sandals on the market since that first flip flop hit shelves. The Men’s Fraid Sandal from Sanuk is a flip flop looks perfect for a casual island vacation or just grabbing a drink down at the corner bar. These sandals are as chill as any you’ll find, and yet they somehow have more personality than 99.99% of the other sandals on the market.

    I didn’t know there were different kind of sandals designed for special activity until I’ve read your post. I enjoyed your site and really makes me feel excited to travel. Your site is too enticing! I went from looking at flip flops and sandals for men (which I need) to looking at all the dreamy destinations you have on your site. Very well put together and lots of great information. Not only am I getting sandals, now I want to plan my next vacation getaway!

      I know, there is probably a sandal or flip flop for every different type of activity you want to do! You would understand for women, but hey men want comfortable feet too! Glad you enjoyed reading and visiting!

    I really liked your review on that particular type of flip flops. I actually love them and the you pointed out the specifics of the product made it sound very trustworthy.

    I also blog about vacation destinations but I concentrate more on the Caribbean. I do reviews on tourist destinations (which might not include just beaches, of course)

    The reading experience was very good too 🙂

    Thanks for your research!

      I am glad you enjoyed 🙂 Yes, and I only do beaches 🙂

    Great review! Very informative! Thank you.

      Thank you Otniel! Hope you enjoyed visiting my website 🙂

    Nothing is better than flip flops to go at the beach with. I am actually going in a few minutes so it’s great to check out this good looking flip flop.

    It’s out of stock though, do you recommend any alternative? Also how do you know your shoes size when buying online?

    Thanks for sharing!


    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Oh, boy they are out of stock 🙁 I will find another source as these really are a great brand of flip flops.

    Hmmmm. You’ve given me something to consider on my next vacation to MIAMI!

    I’m wondering if it’s worth the investment and how long they’ll hold up. But it looks like all the reviews are praising the Rhea Vepo Sandals (plus they’re out of stock here)– so I just may give them a shot. Love the fact that nonslip outsole is patented!

    Thanks for the review!

    My best,
    Nerissa S.

      These really are a good pair! I own a couple pair myself as I am always in flip flops. You should give them a try. They are worth.

    Hi Leahrae:

    You have a very nice website which is well laid out. I was drawn to your site because i will be going on vacation soon so I was looking to see if you had anything about Jamaica, West indies.

    Bit I like your review of the men’s flops. I wear them quite frequently and will certainly have a pair when I go on vacation. But don’t you think you should add the price of the men’s flops the way you did for the women’s?

    I will keep coming back to the site to see if I could before I travel to see if you add anything new.

    Good luck.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Ok, I am glad you found some information you can use. Yes, I can add the price 🙂 Thanks for reading!

    I love flip flops and keep these on during summer. I truly like the midsole features that keep my feet comfortable. Whenever my dad visits my place, he uses my sandals.
    This is an awesome product and I strongly recommend a flip flop that provides pressure density balancing feature. Any sandal that pushes gently against the middle and the ball of your feet can also help in abdominal issues, and even according to some old references Diarrhea as well

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Wow, I had not heard that. That it can help abdominal issues and diarrhea. I was just told by my doctor to wear a flip flop that has this feature or to not wear them at all. Well, I am a flip flop kinda gal, so I found some!

    I like your site VERY much.
    It is well laid out and easy to read. Also you are using great pictures to put the reader in a holiday mood! Interesting points about booking airfares as well!

    Now I want to go on holiday!

    And I want to use your site to book my holiday with!

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Those airfare tips work, hands down! When I first learned of the easy little tricks, I saw what a difference it makes in fares. Thank you for visiting my site!

    Hello, I love your website! I love the niche that you chose and found your review of the best flip flops for men quite interesting. I am sure there are many fellows out there that are trying to find the right flip flops. May I suggest maybe adding a couple more reviews on the same page maybe for more variety? I do like your layout of your site and your style of writing.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      Yes, I like your suggestion. I guess I was starting out with what I have personal first hand knowledge with 🙂

    Hi Leahrae,
    I love flip flops and I use it all the summer in vacation. My husband doesn’t like flip flops because the strip between the toes hurt him. I’m always trying to find the best sandals for my husband but he always complains about the strip.The Rhea sandals look really comfortable and resistant , so I was wondering about the strip material, is it rubber or leather? Besides that they look really nice:)
    Thank you so much.

    1. Leahrae (Post author)

      I think I mostly own flip flops. I think I probably have ten pair in my closet! The material is leather. I don’t think I would wear or promote one with the material being rubber 🙂
