Rider flip flops offer everything from a fully convertible sandal, that's ideal for summer hikes and long evening walks, to beachwear like the Swim. They are a one piece, highly durable flip flop that does away with the toe post but keep themselves attached to any foot shape with a taper strap. A soft EVA insole cushions the feet, so this design is ideal for everyday use.
The Ink are Rider's least expensive flip flops. They are a Brazilian Beach flip flop, so contains a toe post and narrow rubber straps. They are made from unique materials that are non-absorbent and quick drying, so are ideal for wearing to the beach. Although they are cheaper than other Rider flip flops, they are just as durable. They are also flexible and can even be bent back onto themselves. But they are strong enough not to thin out under the heel.
TOMS footwear offer a diverse range of espadrilles, which includes a collection of shoes made from no animal by-products. The Vegan range contains canvas shoes which are ideal for long summer evenings and come in a wide selection of colours and styles. Their range of Stitchout shoes are equally comfortable and just as durable, and are great for lazy summer days on the beach. In keeping with the company's ethos of 'One for One', with every new pair of shoes you buy, the company will provide a new pair of shoes for a child in need.
Birkenstock describe themselves as the healthy choice. Their footwear is based on the natural form of the foot and helps to keep feet healthy by distributing the body's weight evenly. This creates comfort and wellbeing. This season their range includes the Gizeh. This thong style shoe is made from natural leather and is designed for casual or formal wear. Comfort comes from the adjustable strap and shock absorbent EVA sole.
The two strap Arizona is available in leather, suede, Birko Flor or nubuk uppers. A cork latex footbed and EVA sole make this a comfortable shoe to wear no matter what the occasion.
If you want a classic flip flop style but with additional comfort, you should check out the Zen Air range. The Zen 5111 Sport Nero is a flip flop with a cushioned insole and rubber sole. They are long lasting sandals with a classical design, so will look good for many summers to come. Combined with a pair of casuals shorts and a short sleeved shirt, these are the type of flip flops you could wear anywhere from the office to the beach.
The Zen 5108 Horse Bruciato Leather Comfort Sandals are similar in design to the Birkenstock Arizona, but they have a heel support for additional comfort. This offers a more secure fit, so they are ideal for any foot shape. The leather upper offers some protection and with these shoes a lot more of your feet are covered, so these would be good for navigating rocky beaches.
