We know that flip flops often get a bad rap when it comes to wearing them all day, but the best flip flops for walking keep your feet supported and comfortable – even on long walks! We found 10 great options if you want to wear flip flops, but you need them to have more arch support, traction, or untraditional sizing options. Before you grab a new pair of flip flops, here are some key features to consider while you’re shopping.
Gender: We’ll let you know if each pair of flip flops is made for women, men, or unisex sizing to get the fit just right. This will help you find the width, length, and arch location to fit your foot perfectly.
Size Range: In addition to the gender each pair is made for, we’ll also let you know the size ranges. This is great, especially if you have large or small feet! We’ll also tell you if they come in half sizes, too!
Material: The walking flip flops we reviewed come in a variety of materials like leather, canvas, and neoprene! You can find a pair of stylish leather sandals for a day on the town, or a waterproof neoprene pair for the beach!
Color Options: We’ll also let you know how many colors are available for each pair of sandals, so you can find the perfect pair to match your wardrobe. You can even grab a few options to mix things up if you want!
Rubber Sole: Since you’re here to find comfortable flip flops for walking, we looked for sandals with thick, sturdy soles. Rubber is a popular material for support shoes, so we’ll let you know if they’re made of rubber or another sturdy material!
Arch Support: If you need extra arch support, we’ll let you know which pairs are shaped specifically for your high arches! If you have low arches, there are great options that don’t have added arch support to keep you comfortable too!
