Best sandal/flip flop for men?

Hope this hasn't been covered, and if it has, sorry. What will be a comfortable sandal/flip flop for my husband to wear? Not Crocs please. TIA

Depends on what your budget is for sandals. My husband wears Olukai and he swears by them but they're not cheap.

Probably no more than $30-$40.

I've not worn these but I've heard from friends that the flip flops made from yoga mats are very comfortable. They're called sanuk or that may be the manufacturer but I believe they can be found on zappos or shoes.com in your price range.

I have been wearing Reefs for years. The ones I wear right now, I bought in June last year and after wearing hem almost everyday since, they are still comfortable and in good shape. Im probably going to wear them at MK on Saturday. I think I paid $25 for them. They aren't fancy. Sanuk is a good brand too. I used to work in a surf shop in Tampa and Sanuk was, and still is very popular. I hope this helps.

My husband has Teva's that he loves, and I just bought him the Sanuk Men's Beer Cozy Flip Flop from Amazon (you can get them at Zappo's too) for our trip at the end of this month. He thinks they are going to be very comfortable.

I love that they call them Beer Cozy material for guys and Yoga Mat for women! Creative marketing!

You can cross Dr. Scholl's Gaston (yes, that's the real name) Sandals off your list. You'd think that brand would really excel, but they were no match for a trip to WDW. Had to throw them out when I got back, the insole was thrashed and useless.

Reefs with the squishy material. I forget what it's called. I love mine.

What's wrong with Crocs sandals? I personally hate the famous Crocs "shoe" but the flip flops are pretty good. I've done two tours at WDW with Crocs flip-flops and they're very comfortable. Better yet, they are subtle and don't remind anyone of Crocs.

He probably wouldn't mind the Crocs flip flop, just not the shoe.
