Flip-flops might be the most convenient shoe in your closet, but they may not be the most durable (or comfortable). They're easy to throw on for nearly any occasion, whether you're headed to the beach or to the salon for a pedicure, but you likely wouldn't throw them on for a day spent outside of the house because you haven't found the right pair.
Comfortable flip-flops do exist, and they're actually stylish. Don't just take our word for it, though. When it comes to finding affordable, fashionable and comfortable fashion essentials, Amazon shoppers might be the best sleuths. So whether you're in need of a new pair to get you through walking around outside throughout summer or flip-flops are your around-the-house shoe, you won't have to dig deep to find the perfect pair.
We rounded up the bestselling flip-flops on Amazon that shoppers can't get enough of, from pairs with arch support to fan favorites with glowing reviews. Read on for the flip-flops you'll want to wear every season.
Bestselling Amazon flip-flops
Old Navy flip-flops have found their way to the Amazon bestsellers list and have amassed almost 8,800 verified five-star ratings. They come in dozens of different colors in standard sizes and have a newly-updated look with thinner straps. Reviewers note that they run a bit small, so you may want to size up before adding them to your cart.
Brazilian brand Havianas is a tried-and-true favorite, having been around since the 1960s. The brand's slim flip-flop is particularly an Amazon favorite, with over 22,500 verified five-star ratings. Despite their slim feel, they boast a cushioned insole and both heat- and water-resistant construction.
Reef's flip-flops have a triple-density footbed that provides arch support and traction that can stand up to any summer day. If you prefer to keep your footwear neutral, you can shop them in navy, black and brown styles to match your wardrobe.
Another comfortable flip-flop that is made from durable EVA are these flip-flops. They come in 25+ different colors that can suit any style and are designed to cushion and cradle the foot to reduce pressure on your knees and lower back, according to the brand. Over 8,200 verified five-star ratings have boosted them to Amazon bestseller status.
Tevas are making a comeback, which is why these have found their way to the top of the bestsellers list on Amazon. With a mush footbed and traction pattern, these flip-flops were made to stand up to days spent outdoors or errand runs.
For a more cushioned feel in your flip flops, opt for these ones from Under Armour that feature two layers of 4D foam. Reviewers recommend sizing down a half size, unless you have wide or thick feet, then size up a half size to avoid a snug fit.
Similar to the cloud sandals that Cushionaire popularized, these sandals slip on easily for all day comfort. Available in 10 colors, reviewers love these "thick" and "cushy" sandals even more so for the texture, as they provide an "amazing" feeling while walking around.
Flip-flops and blisters after long wear might seem inevitable, but one Shop TODAY writer couldn't believe how comfortable these sandals from Sanuk felt. The rubber sole is made from the same foam as your favorite yoga mat, so every step you take feels as squishy and comfortable as it does when you enter the yoga studio. These have more than 19,000 verified five-star ratings from shoppers praising the "super comfy" style.
If comfort is your top priority, these bestsellers are a pair you might not want to pass up on. They feature an OrthoLite footbed, durable outsole and light-as-a-cloud feel. With over 37,000 verified five-star ratings, they're currently one of the top-selling wedge sandals on Amazon and come in over two dozen colors. The best part? Rather than a standard strap, the buckle is adjustable so you can ensure a proper fit.
A step above your traditional flip-flop, these sandals from Plaka are crafted from vegan rubber and use woven straps that stretch around your feet to keep them secure as you walk. They're suitable for narrow to medium-sized feet and come in a variety of colors to suit any style.
Reef's Breeze sandal doesn't require a break-in period thanks to its soft webbing liner that that also offers some protection against water. Over 10,000 verified reviewers have given them a five-star rating, calling them out for how comfortable they are, with one reviewer even calling them the "perfect summer sandal." "Very comfy flip-flop," the shopper wrote. "The sole is squishy and the straps are soft and don't rub my feet."
The well-loved sandal brand does more than shoes made for adventuring — they also sell classic flip-flops that feature their well-known rubber soles.
Reviewers love them because they're made of "tougher materials," meaning they aren't flimsy and won't break after little usage. They also enjoy the textured footbed, making sure your feet are secure and you have good traction.
Crocs are coming back in a big way after becoming the choice of footwear for many celebrities during the pandemic. They boast the same comfort as the controversial shoe but in the form of a breathable sandal that also features massage-pod footbeds that are supposed to feel good on your feet. You can pair them with shorts and a T-shirt or toss them on with a swimsuit and cover-up for a beach day.
The comfort of sneakers from Skechers is no secret, so it is to be expected that flip-flops from the brand also provide the same feeling. These flip-flops have a responsive cushioning, a rubber sole and a "Goga mat" footbed that make them thick but flexible.
We love the vintage and comfortable style of Birkenstocks, so it's no surprise that the flip-flop variation of their beloved shoes are another bestseller. With an EVA shock-absorbing sole, soft suede lining and adjustable thong strap, they're a timeless style you can wear over and over again, regardless of the season.
For summer weddings, reviewers love this choice that features a "soft footbed" and neutral color options, such as natural cork, white, black and nude.
Available in 12 colors, this sandal is crafted with durable leather for long-lasting wear and soft leather on the sole to provide cushioning while wearing. Reviewers rave about the Rainbow flip-flops, not only because they live up to their promises of longevity, but because they're "so comfortable and great if you have a high arch."
Shop TODAY assistant partnerships editor Lauren Witonsky has been wearing these sandals since high school, further emphasizing their longevity.
With a bit more lift, these flip-flops from Oofos offer more shock absorption than standard flip-flops and are designed to cradle the arches of your foot. Even better than the comfort they provide? They're machine-washable, so you can toss them in the washing machine after a long beach day.
