For me the designer flip flop obsession started with my Havaianas 5 years ago. They are by far the most comfortable...and at $24 not too expensive. They also do some of the best prints and color combos I have seen.
Then last summer it was the Tory Burch Flip Flop. In little ol' Kansas City, you could not get your size anywhere. Our Nordstrom was constantly sold out of them. We got my mother in law a pair for Mother's Day. She loved them!!! The rubber is a little bit heftier than Havianas and they run about $45.
And then they made the Patent flip flop, which I LOVE. Great for the pool and dressy enough to wear with your skinny jeans all summer long. $115
This summer, I think the must have will be the DVF flip flop. With a heavier sole and with the iconic love knot with stone detail, it's a stand out with any summer outfit. This sandal comes in Black, Gold or white for $78. The perfect, sophisticated flip flop for summer...
