I have some flip flops from LLBean. They are comfortable, but I got calluses on the bottom of my feet, right at the pressure point of my foot, from wearing them! :eek:

Do all flip flops cause this, or are there some that do not?

have you tried the flip flops from JCrew ? I think I've got about 15 pairs ( I add a pair or two each year). they are truly the most comfortable flip flops ever. This year I might try the Crocs Crocband Flip. I asked about them in another thread and they got really positive reviews. ( can't go wrong if it's Crocs!) :cool1:
But the JCrew flip flops have never given me trouble at all and I've worn them for years. (and worn them to Disney twice and didn't have any issues) Plus you can get them in a ton of really nice colors and patterns....they'll go with everything .:cool1:

I love Nike Celsos. They come in a variety of colors, are lightweight and very comfy.

Teva Mush. I swear by them. They feel like you're walking on air.

A vote for Crocs Capris. They have good heel cushioning. I can no longer wear regular flip flops but I never have a problem with the Crocs kind (with the molded foot-bed). A plus is that the Capris have a suede or cloth strap so they don't have a very Croc-ish plastic-ey look.:goodvibes

(- I loved Athens too! Capri seems to be the closest - the one piece ABF look too flimsy)

Teva Mush...LOVE them and most flip flops hurt my feet. DD and I get a new pair every year for Disney!

JCrew hands down! LOVE THEM. I wear them like crazy and on heavy walking vacations (NYC, Chicago, Disney, etc).

I second these. I love them! I've worn them all day walking around Disney and my feet never hurt me.

I thrid J Crew flip flops. They've been on over 5 Disney trips with me and I've never had any foot issues. Also, no breaking in period where you get blisters, etc. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

These are the ones I normally wear. They do have plain ones too.

I don't like to wear any of the foam type flips as they irritate my feet. It's almost like they suck the moisture out of them. I have some Speedo ones that kind of are okay, but they're still not great.

I do like Crocs though. I just bought a pair last night.....Florence.
I went through crocs online store. $26.99 total including shipping if you use that code that gets you 10% off plus free shipping

Im a flip flop girl !! I wear them everyday even to work (I just try to keep my feet under my desk) I own dozens of different flip flops of all kinds. Hands down the Teva Mush flip flops are the best (J Crew is a close second). For some reason the Croc flip flops kill my feet. I guess everyone is different.

Teva Mush. I bought my pair, then went back and bought 3 more pairs so each of us girls could have one.

I have both tevas and Nike Celsos and must say the Celsos are just more comfortable then the Tevas..... but it is close.:goodvibes

Teva Mush! I heard about them last year from a shoe for the parks thread and ordered some pairs. Definitely the most comfortable flip flops ever!

i have a pair of Reef that I LOVE!!! sooo comfy! Just got a pair of Roxy (sale at Macys') that are good so far, but they are new.. and a pair of Havinas (probably not spelled correctly) that are great too!!!... I try a bit of everything.. haven't found the perfect pair just yet!

Love my Sanuk Yoga Mat flip flops. Feels like your feet just forms and melts into them. I forget I have them on.

Another vote for the Teva Mush. I haven't bought a new pair for 3 years and mine are all I wear in the summer.

I bought mine at Scheels.

I LOVE my TEVAS! I have had them for two years and wear them almost every day esp in the warm months (and in TN that is almost 7-8 months out of the year). I just wore through my 1st pair and intend to buy two pairs this year!

Everyone around here is wearing Yellow Box flip flops. My DDs say that's what they want for summer.

Can anyone tell me if they are comparably comfortable to the Teva Mush or JCrew or others mentioned here??

I love Yellow Box flip flops .....they're about as comparable as the JCrew flip flops as far as comfort. IMO, I think the JCrew ones last longer.

I've heard wonderful things about TEVA Mush and would like to try a pair.

I love REEF flip flops, they are super comfy and have a cloth part that goes over your foot and in between your toes, it is really soft and comfy. They kind of mold to your foot and will last forever. Seriously, I've had a pair since 2000 and they are still going strong!
