Amanda, aka Dumb Mom, of Parenting by Dummies was wondering the other day about alternatives to flip flops.
Since I can never resist an opportunity to talk about shoes, today’s Style Q&A is inspired by her post. Let’s talk about sandals that are as comfortable as flip flops, but don’t look like they belong on the beach (or, worse, in the shower at the pool).
As I’ve said before, the key is to find a sandal in the shape and style of a flip flop, but constructed in material other than rubber, preferably leather. In other words, a thong sandal. Embellishments also go a long way to making a sandal look more chic, and less cheap.
Here are a few to try:
Alternatives to flip flops
- Calvin Klein’s Jade, $48 at Zappos
- Tommy Hilfiger’s Tutti, $29 at Zappos
- Nine West’s Nelia,$49 at Zappos
- Kate Spade’s First, $250 at Endless
- Cole Haan Air Astoria, $125 at Endless
