Ideal for trips to the beach or simply lounging at home, flip-flops are a warm-weather must. They help keep feet cool and are easy to slip on and off. Plus, they can even withstand summer showers — depending on the type of material.

Today’s offerings are also better than ever before, going beyond flimsy, one-season styles with ultra-comfortable options featuring cushioned footbeds and straps with extra support. Some are even stylish enough to be worn for casual outings like lunch with friends. There are also heeled options you can sport at the office.

The designs are endless, from chic and minimalist pairs to styles with bold patterns and chunky straps. When shopping, consider whether you want a sporty, water-friendly design, something classic or a sleek pair you can easily dress up. Solid options will be lightly padded to soften your step and it’s a bonus if they feature anatomically designed footbeds that will mold to the shape of your foot for enhanced comfort.

To help you find your perfect pair, we’ve rounded up a great selection of flip-flops for women. We pulled our picks from popular brands such as Teva, Nike, Birkenstock and more. Keep scrolling to shop them.
