flipflops (400x400)Ah, the cold snaps are finally over (we hope), and beach vacations are forthcoming. No summer is complete without the familiar “flip, flip, flip” sound of flip-flops. Although they’re not appropriate for wearing to the office, they’re a summer staple for the beach and outdoor outings. If you’re on the lookout for some brightly colored and affordable flip-flops, look no further! We’ve got great deals for you here for less than $15 a pair.

Old Navy Flip-Flops

There’s no need to pick out one particular style from Old Navy; all of their flip-flops are affordable. The cheapest of the lot are their Classic flip-flops currently priced at $2.50. Their elevated flip-flops only run $6.94, printed flip-flops at $9.94, and t-straps at$12.94. For the entire selection, click here. A word of caution: these are great for light wear, but if you have to do a lot of walking on your beach vacation, you’ll want to choose flip-flops with sturdier soles.

LC Flip-Flops at Kohl’s

The Lauren Conrad line at Kohl’s offers a good variety of color and is currently priced at $12.99, marked down from the regular price of $19.99. Of course, classic colors like black, white, gold, silver and tan are available, but so are bright hues like fuchsia, teal and tomato. The bottom of the sole gives you better traction than many flip-flop designs, and the foot-bed is padded for a comfortable stride. Overall, these flip-flops get great reviews on comfort and style.

Airwalk Women’s Quizzical Eva Flip-Flop

Available for $14.99 from Payless, these flip-flops offer great support and a punch of color with the pink striping and polka-dot pattern across the foot straps. If you’re looking for a comfy pair for a walking-intensive vacation, I’d recommend these. The wider foot straps will make them more comfortable on top of your feet, and the padded soles that conform to your feet will be a welcome relief when you’re pounding the pavement or strolling along the boardwalk.
