    A very interesting and informative site! This is the first time I have seen a flip flop with foot bed made out of real yoga mats. I didn’t know this product exist. Looks very stylish and comfortable I may want to get one. Just that I can’t see the base. Will it be slippery if it is on wet surfaces? I like flip flops with good grips.

    I love flip-flops and these look really cute. My favorite one though are TKEES which come in a variety of different colors. They’re kind of pricy though so I’m always on the look-out for a sale. what I like most about them is that they are super lightweight and can easily be tossed into a bag. Which ones you show here are the most comfortable?

      Any of the flip flops by Sanuk are going to be super comfortable.  I have plantar fasciitis and these make my heels feel so much better.  They are worth the price and last quite a long time. Thanks for stopping by.

      You learn something everyday! I know when I first moved from the cold to a warmer climate, I was amazed at all the different varieties. I am a flip flop person, so I have a good variety of them. Including some of my recommendations 🙂 Thanks for visiting the best flip flops for women.

    Awesome post about flip flops. I love to wear them, but my feet are flat. I am excited to read about Footminders flip flops. If I could get a little arch in my flip flop, then my feet wouldn’t hurt at the end of the day!

      I have plantar fasciitis in my right heel and I HAVE to have a flip flop with arch support. The footminders are wonderful! I wear flip flops all the time, so these get worn out and I buy more 🙂

    Hi Leahrae,

    This is very useful- thanks for sharing your insights. Do you have any favourites for rocky beaches? My flip flops always seem to come off much more easily when I am walking on the rocks. 🙂

    I love your blog posts. Lots of information. I live on the beautiful garden island of Kauai, in Hawaii and thats all we wear is flip flops. We call them slippers here or “rubba slippa” There very comfortable.
    Flip flops goes great with anything, you can dress it up.

    Having grown up in sunny southern California, flip flops are a staple. I’ve purchased many pairs of Clarks shoes in various styles and have yet to try these sandals. Clarks makes a good quality shoe and if they’re anything like my previous purchases, I’m going to love to have these. They look pretty cute and I can’t wait to try them.

    Hello Mattysmom,
    This post was short and sweet. I like the way you llaid out your post and the way you gave concise information about the flip-flops and the price. I don’t know too much abut flip-flops but they seem to be the perfect solution for beach wear and just causal shopping. Thanks for the information.

    Flip flops are great footwear, not just for the beach, but also just for casual wearing if you are not travelling anywhere too far. These clarks flip flops look great, will surely recommend them to my female friends.

    The cushioned footbed and midsole feature that you mentioned, is a very crucial feature in my opinion. Many cheap flip flops are not designed to be adequately cushioned for comfort. Great review!

      Exactly….most flip flops are really not good for your feet. My doctor specifically recommended this type of flip flop or to stop wearing them all together.

    You seem to have the hang of something that many struggle with – clarity and being concise. Many people feel they have to say a lot to get things done or sold, but its using the right words at the right time – like you do!
    Well done

    Hi
    This flip flop looks great, I’m sure it will feel great wearing it as well. I love the fact that it is lined with a fabric and not all rubber. This is also the first adjustable flip flop I am seeing. I would love one of these, it would fit nicely round my feet!

    Hi Lea,

    I live in a hot country just two minutes from the sea and I always need flip-flops to go to the beach as I always lose them when I go for a swim. You know, there are so many peoples on the beach and sometimes it’s hard to find the stuff I left on the side. This pair of flip-flop looks nice and comfortable, I like the color and the material seem to be strong. You have mentioned that these flip-flops come in 7 colors, is it possible to know what colors?
    Thank you in advance:)

      Yes, if you click on the Amazon link, you can find the colors for purchase. I would list them but sometimes there will be a popular color out of stock. They are a great pair of flip flops. Feels more like sandals.

    Thanks for your thoughts on these Clarks Thong Sandals. Having a New Zealand influence in our home we call them “jandals”!” 🙂 I couldn’t survive without jandals at the beach, though once I hit the beach, they’re off and I’m enjoying the sand. These ones look so comfortable and I love the colours they come in, particularly with the floral designs. I also notice they have great reviews on Amazon.
