If you’re not spending a significant amount of your summer in flip-flops, you might want to take stock of your life and make some changes. The wonderful thing about these shoes is you don’t have to spend a fortune to find a comfy pair. Here are five pairs of budget-minded flip-flops that people on the internet absolutely love.

Hari Mari Park ($55)

The beauty of memory foam is that it’s dense yet offers ample cushion. Hari Mari uses the material to create a flop that’s forgiving while still feeling structured. The foam is topped with moisture-wicking hemp, and the Nubuck leather straps are lined with more memory foam for added comfort.

Sanuk Beer Cozy 2 ($35)

No beer cozies were harmed in the making of these flip-flops. Sanuk actually uses yoga mats for the footbeds and adds a bit of arch support for structure. The webbing looks like leather, but it’s vegan-friendly faux leather with soft neoprene inners.

Keen Kona ($38)

The EVA-molded footbed gives the Kona a sense of structure that you’d typically only find in a full-on shoe, and the rubber sole actually provides decent traction. Put it together and you have a pair of flip-flops that provides support on beach days that turn adventurous. I also like the fuller coverage of the poly webbing. The antimicrobial treatment doesn’t hurt, either.

You’re not going to run a marathon in these, but the incredibly soft footbeds mold to your feet to provide a custom cush fit. We dig the canvas uppers that provide a vintage look.

Synthetic Nubuck uppers offer the look of leather in a water-friendly package. The EVA footbeds are lightweight and springy, but contoured enough to provide structure if you find yourself moving from beach to bar and back again.
