Here are our Staff's Picks for Flip Flops

At Divers Direct, comfort and style are key when it comes to summer footwear. That's why our staff has selected a range of flip-flops that prioritize support and cushioning for all-day stylish wear. 


Starting with Michael, Michael’s go-to pair of flip-flops is The Deckhand Sandals by Reef. These sandals are an excellent catch, especially for when you're out on the deck. It’s important to own sandals you can trust and these sandals were designed with siped rubber grooves that provide an anti-slip grip and incredible traction. Whether at sea or alongside it on the shore, the water-friendly, quick-drying liner keeps you comfortable throughout the day. Plus, Ralph’s favorite color is blue and he believes the color name “Ocean Depths” is very fitting.


Next up, we have Candace’s favorite sandal, not just for her but for her entire family. Picture slipping your feet into a cushioned footbed that molds to your every step, providing support and relief. The Olukai ‘Ohana, available in both men’s and women’s, features water-resistant and quick-drying straps, an arched footbed, and a non-marking enhanced outsole grip for great traction. From memory foam footbeds to arch support features, she wears these for those long walks on the beach or when exploring the city streets—no wonder they are her favorites. 


But don't think we've sacrificed style for comfort! Our picks also feature trendy designs to keep you looking chic and relaxed. For instance, Rosana’s flip-flop pick is the Reef Water Vista Sandals. Its versatile design works well for those long walks on the beach or exploring the city streets. She also appreciates the heel strap for a more secure flip-flop fit. In her words, “It is beachy and elegant yet comfortable and stylish.” 


Last but certainly not least, Carlos’s pick is an ideal blend of comfort and style. The OluKai Tuahine Sandals are top-notch leather flip-flops designed for guys seeking all-day comfort and waterproof protection for their beach outings. The comfort stems from the compression-molded footbed and arch support. The style is seen in the durable full-grain leather. But once you try them on, you witness the comfort AND style with the high-quality leather straps and soft mesh inner lining that are gentle on the skin. With a "Wet Grip Rubber" non-marking outsole, you can confidently navigate wet surfaces without slipping. Inspired by Hawaiian winds and Manoa Valley rainfalls, these sandals combine style and functionality seamlessly. “For the ultimate ‘man’ sandal, get the OluKai Tuahine.”

When it comes to choosing the perfect pair of flip-flops for the summer, comfort and style are key. Our staff's top picks prioritize both these factors above all else.
