Flip flops are a summer staple and if you’re like me and live in FL then it’s a 365 day a year staple. I’m ALWAYS on the lookout for a new pair for me and my boys. My entire family is more often than not seen wearing flip flops and we have a ton of different styles to keep our options open. Flip flops are meant to be easy, comfortable and, if you buy the right ones, stylish! For the most part I love a pair of brown leather flip flops but believe it or not I often have a hard time finding just the right ones. Much of the time the leather is too tough or the color is never quite what I want. I wear brown because of the earthy vibe and Reef Sandals have an amazing selection of this type and more! I love the little details they put into them (check out the adorable crotchet pair below) and the soles are thick and comfy making them durable which means I can wear them to death!
My boys, on the other hand, have two requirements when it comes to their flip flops: comfort and durability. They use their sandals hard from running around the beach, in the water and even playing basketball in them! The Reef Fanning flip flops are absolutely perfect for this kind of wear and tear. They’re not your typical flat flip flop… these babies have arch support with a molded eva footbed and a heel airbag.
Check out some of my favorite styles and what to wear them with below.
These crotchet pairs are adorable and perfect with anything from a maxi dress to rolled-up boyfriend jeans.
These are the perfect chocolate brown flip flops! I love that they’re suede and look more expensive than $36. Wear with all of your summer favorite dresses or shorts.
The Moonlight Palms sandals is stylish and comfy! Pair with cut off shorts and a neon top for a fun look.
Men are typically practical and don’t need a ton of different looking shoes, so thankfully the fanning reefs have a ton of colors to choose from. Boys can pair these with basketball shorts and a fitted white muscle tee or chinos and a striped top – you really can’t go wrong.
Update: The winner of the new statement Havaianas is Meredith with the following comment: “I’d wear the new Statement Havaianas with my cute new bright blue pants and a plain white tee” and Agi B with the following comment: “I love havainas and would wear them with my short outfits, summer dresses and while I’m boating with whatever..” Congratulations Meredith and Agi and a big thank you to all who participated!
