the best flip flops for women

Flip flops, also known as thongs to the Aussies (makes sense when you think about it), are a very simple yet extremely practical shoe. They’re comfy, easy to wear and go with pretty much any outfit, what’s not to like? We’ve rounded up some of the best flip flops for women to protect your feet at the beach this summer. 

Now, you don’t just want to pick up a cheap pair of flip flops that are going to fall apart within a few days. Instead make sure you find a pair that is supportive, have good grip, and will make your toes look fabulous all at the same time. 

The Ted Baker Suszie Flip Flops are dainty and great for wearing by the pool, but if you’re going walking in the local town then you might want to pick a more robust sandal like the Dolce Vita Black Woven Slide Sandals, that will keep your toes protected.
