Flip-flops are a summer staple, but let’s face it—they’re not exactly good for your feet. Cheap flip-flops may be good for showing off your pedicure, but they’re bad for your foot arches and heels. Although we love a good bargain at Go Shopping Info, splurging a little more on your summer footwear can save your feet from a lot of aches and pains. Here are four quality flip-flops at bargain prices for a pain-free summer.
Women’s Vionic with Orthaheel Technology
For the ultimate in comfort, you can’t beat footwear that has been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association. The Vionic sandals have a unique footbed design that relieves foot, knee and ankle pain. Although they’re normally $60 or more, you can find them on sale at Footwear Etc. for only $49.99. Limited sizes are available online, but if you live in California, visit the stores near you for a better selection.
Adissage Supercloud Slides
Soft, comfortable and supportive, the Adidas Adissage Supercloud Slides are a summer favorite. These $23 flip-flops are as durable as they are comfortable, and are well-suited to wearing at the pool, on the beach or anytime you need to do a significant amount of walking during your vacation. Some reviews report that the shoes slide quite a bit as you walk, but you won’t have this problem if you adjust the Velcro top. The shoes come in men’s sizes, but it’s sold as a unisex sandal in many stores. Women may need to order down a size or two.
At 6pm, you can get the Freewaters Foil flip-flops for a bargain price of $19.99. The shoes are vegan friendly, and they have a supportive heel cup to prevent sliding and discomfort while you walk. The shoes also have good arch support for a flip-flop. These are also available only in men’s sizes, so ladies should order down a size or two for a better fit.
Nike Comfort Flip-flops
For $21.99, you can get a highly-rated pair of Nike flip-flops at Kohl’s. With a memory foam footbed, the shoes mold to your feet providing the ultimate in comfort. The reviews for these shoes are excellent, and unlike the other styles above, these come in many different color combinations. The Volt Pink and Pink Mango colors are perfect for summer.
