Quality and comfort in a waterproof sandal?! Unlike a typical flip-flop, these have plenty of arch support to keep you feeling good even on longer walks, and feature a ridge toward the top to keep your toes from sliding around.

Because of the skinnier straps, these thong sandals have a more delicate feel than some of the sportier styles shown above. But don’t worry about the typical pain that comes with strappy shoes; according to the description, these straps are made out of a soft synthetic material to keep them from digging into your feet.
